    I didn't do a detailed write up about any of these installs but wanted to attach links to all the products I bought. All seem to be good quality and I'm happy with the way the products all matched up.

    First I did the Satoshi grill with perforated grill from Custom car grills, then added a customized vintage toyota logo also from custom car grills (I bought the white and painted to match the dark blue of my truck). Then I added 96 Watt - 9" behind the grill round lights. I think this is the biggest lights you will fit back there. Lights are from ebay - attached link. The lights were installed with a relay/wiring harness from Mictuning (from Amazon). The switch came from CH4x4 industries (also amazon).

    Nice. My preference would have been to leave the Toyota emblem unpainted, but otherwise looks good.

    I understand, I don't have any white on my truck, the black rims and everything made me decide to go subtle on the logo, it is less classic this way so I get it.

    How well do those lights work? I'm considering a pair for mounting to my ARB bumper?

    nice, had an 06 AC in the same blue that I miss and would have kept if it was not for the paint going to hell but the AZ sun beat the hell out of it.

    I'd say really quite well...only been installed for about a month so not sure on longevity but I bounce around lots of lease/gravel trails and they are still working.

    Also they are good to give a quick flash to the left lane campers who don't look in their rear view mirror....a quick flash and they jump over to the right.

    I made custom brackets out of 1.5" angle iron...you can kind of see them in the pics. I don't think the 9" would fit on the pre-built brackets that are available. I didn't look too hard at the options for mounting systems as I have a bunch of steel and a welder so I knew I'd just fabricate my own.
