    I searched here and online but no luck so far. I have a 2021 nightshade and don't really want to swap the grill. Anyone have suggestions or know of a place that has Raptor style lights for the OEM grill?

    Thanks!

    Install took about 20 minutes

    I tapped into the Red 10 Amp INJ fuse and used the Add-A-Fuse in its place. Route the grille LED lights power wire inside the fuse box such that there is some slack on the wire and pass it through the slot you made into the fuse box cover. Install the fuse box lid securely.

    All plug and play.

    It has held up to car washes and Winter weather. I’m very happy with them.

    I literally had the same question last night but didn't post right away. My issue is that it's easy to find these raptor-style lights for even the stock OEM TRD honeycomb grille, but I have a 2021 SR5 which has a grille like in the attached photo. It can't be rocket science for someone to figure out a mount for this style of grille, but so far, I have not found anyone selling such a thing. Has anyone seen something I haven't?

    I remember some one making something, but couldn’t remember who :) I came up with a way to make switchbacks work pretty cool (IMO) for grille lights. I’ve never really wanted them, but might have to pull the trigger just to use the design.

    Where do the Raptor style lights hook up in the fuse box?

    I tried the DRL slot, but only the Raptor lights would work. It was starting to get dark, no LED lights would come on.

    Did I screw something up?

    it should be straight forward. The black wire goes to the ground and the red wire with add-a-fuse goes to the fuse box- the headlight fuse in the fuse box (10A- Hlprhlo). The raptor headlight should be on when your headlight is on.
