    :D

    Straight plug ‘n’ play for our TRD PRO or FEAUX grills, took me 10mins and that’s with the wiring.

    Not too bad. I personally think they'd be better if spaced out a little more.

    Do them Yourself and spread them out a bit. Too concentrated in the middle IMO

    For the price, it’s more hassle to hack up my grill and do the wiring. This came with a plug and play harness as well, totally reversible too!

    Yours have a nice fancy mounting bracket.

    Mine are long, skinny ones off Amazon that fit just right in the slots. They were too bright, though, so I shot some nightshades over them. Now, they are perfect and blend in during the day since they are black. I also prefered to use 3.

    Yours are also 05-11 and interchangeable with the the 3rd Gen grill.

    They are on a 2013...with TRD pro grill or whatever like in first post.

    For the sake of eliminating confusion, these were off eBay and are 4” by 1” which is the same as the slots in the trd grill. I just cable tied them in place and soldered them together. They are not the snap in type.

    I feel embarrassed for the wannabe raptors. Especially on a taco. But hey, it's your truck, not mine so whatever floats your boat.

    I like the look of these. Please post your search terms for ebay. Also, do they come in other colors for the lights?

    Seems to me the name itself says it all. they belong on a Raptor not a Taco.
    Just my opinion....

    In general I like the way it looks and see some Tacoma's around town with it. The only thing is I also see it as unique to the Raptors and Tacoma owners are copying that look. If the Pro had it, that would be one thing.

    If it helps someone about to pull out in front me from doing it because they aren’t used to seeing extra lights then I’m game. I’d rather that extra 1% chance they don’t so I dont break both my feet and rip my knee apart again.
    I’m also more cautious which is the other 99%.
