    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    just installed a set of the 500FF's on my bumper last night. Looks good. how did the wiring for the lights go? i cut and used my fog light wiring so i can still use the factory switch. i see you still have your fogs so you must have used the kits' wiring.

    The new lights look sweet. How much did you pay for them, where did you get them, and were they easy to install?

    Ya I used the wireing kit that came with them
    it was a simple install took maybe an hour from start to finish
    and I took my time with covering all the wire and such
    Bought them from 4wheelparts.com a few years ago
    for my old truck and never did install them so I really dont remember
    what they cost me but I see them online for as low as 70 bucks a set.

    I love the winch
    I used L brackets off the winch pan
    there were allready holes there so I just
    made some custom L brackets and taped them
    for the holes allready there 1 can of crylon gloss black
    2 L brackets total of about 5 bucks way cheaper and
    a lot better look them warns 40 dollar mounts

    The lights look awesome. I may go with a black Westin bull bar and mount some Hella's or KC's.
