    Looking on purchasing a light bar for my Tacoma and just getting a few ideas on where i'd want to go with it! I've looked at a few and believe i'm going to go outside of the truck instead of behind the grill. Show me what you got!

    What kind of Lights are those? Hella?

    I like the 3 light look on the Tacoma but seems like most places i look are for a pair of them instead of buying singles.

    They're Hella 700FFs. I bought four, as in my business, it's not uncommon to incur, um, "glass breakage". I also replaced the middle one with an Optiluxe HID, which can be bought in singles. (it was on sale for $200 at the local speed shop).

    Great thread - I would like to put an LED strip on the middle bar of mine - just might happen!! Mine is an AVID as well - I love it - well built and it is powder coated 20% gloss -- the stock wheels match.

    Great looking trucks!!!

    One thing to keep in mind with the Westin, it isn't built with any kind of rough use in mind. Mine broke at the brackets in less than a month. I had to box/gusset the heck out of it in order to keep it in one piece.

    Can't really make my mind up on behind the grill or not. Id like to have a different grill as well but if I can get the right look, having the lights on the outside gives the truck a rougher look IMO. Saying that, i have seen some mean behind the grill looks as well.
