    A roof light bar (IMO) would look hideous on a Tacoma. Also, there would be issues with the stability of it at speed. Just go with something like the Randy Ellis light bar, would be my suggestion.

    Of course, if roof mount is what you want, go for it. Be a bit of a pioneer.

    I was trying to find something like that for a while now as well. i was surfing the gallery photos and saw this wicked looking pic from someones profile. He got a roll bar from a dakota which fit awesome, better then any light bar i've seen. Anyone know of this member? it was a black tacoma... all i know.
