    Hey guys never really introduced myself or posted pics of my truck, well my names Mike. Im from Brandon Fl, I work for the county water, graduated class 2010. Bought my 2007 acces cab tacoma on 11-8-2010! Its a sr5 v6 4x4 6spd manual! Loving every minute of it!

    As of this week (2-1) I installed a kc light bar with 4 day lighters, got em wired up today and lovin em! Each light has its own switch, only other mods are weather tech floor mats, shackle in the reciever hitch and weather tech floor mats. Also wanted to add a couple pics of my cold steel shovel that is also a cutting tool and weighted for throwing. Oh and swapped the stock bfgs for some michelens for the time being after a wet skid that almost ruined my new to me truck! And got a dynomax super turbo dumped and it sounds SWEET!

    TO the PICS!!!

    Yeah, I gots boost
    Welcome from MT! Just a word to the wise though... you're eventually gonna want to wire up all those lights to one switch. I can't think of many situations where I could use offroad lights and not want all four! I set mine up 2 and 2. Got old fast. And then you'll have switch spaces for other stuff!

    First off welcome to the forum, though it looks like you've been here for a bit. . . . I don't think that light set up is too bad, two to one is more my preferance but here's why. (depending on the type of lights) If you have the two inside ones angled more strait forward then you might use them for road use, or when you have 4x4 buddies around you don't want to blind so bad. then take the other two and blast them up to the sky to hit the higher stuff. But that's just my two cents. Each one to a switch? eh... cach it to personal preferance. Nice truck.

    My lights are set up pretty close to what your saying, the middle are right above the headlights on the road and the outside (even tho they look strait) are pointing out. I will try to get some night time pics. And the switch thing was a last minute deal and I like it, may switch to 2 to a switch like originally planned but not for a while.
