    So I am new this forum and this might have already been asked and/or answered. I do a lot of recovery for my friends and church members (pulls out of ditches and so forth). In my old truck I had the built in variation lights that my previous company installed for me. Well due to my warranty and contract on my new TRD I can't alter or modify wiring. Do you guys have any solutions or suggestions on additional light for recovery situations? Preferably battery or dc

    To clarify, these would be hazard lights; in addition, to the factory ones.

    What about if you add lights to your truck but don't alter any existing wiring? Or is that out the window.

    Not sure honestly, I kind of liked that no one knew I had additional lighting. I just had a light toggle switch below the steer wheel, other than that everything else looked factory.

    What direction are you looking to add lights? Forward, rear, sides, etc

    You can just add a separate circuit that doesn't even touch existing wiring. Battery to a fuse block, to your switch, to the lights. Nice and easy
