    What did you put in the marker and signal lights in each corner of your ARB? Output looks much higher than a standard bulb, even a standard LED

    nice ride !!

    I have been thinking about putting two lights behind the grill of my Tacoma but have no idea how to do so. I have seached TW and I'm sure there is a thread somewhat but can't seem to stumble across it. Any thoughts?

    BAMF makes a bolt on bar that fits there and holds lights

    http://www.bayareametalfab.com/Behind-The-Grille-Light-Bar-bracket_p_9.html

    You can add brackets to hold an led bar

    Or you can fab up a mount to hold lights where you want them to be

    exactly what I was looking for, thanks so much. They just so happen to be on sale, today only. Coincidence?

    I am reading that you have to relocate the horn. Is that difficult for a newb like mysef?

    You do have to relocate the horns but it should not be all that hard a self tapping screw or two and your pretty well done. I went a different way and bent my horns out of the way. I will probably relocate them in a few weeks

    Somewhere on here there is a how to. If I run across it I will post it up for you. A guy relocated the horn and used angle iron to make a bracket bolt up behind the grill but out of the way of the radiator

    You mean projectors? Or just halos? I would do a retro. You'll never regret it. And will last a lot longer. But if you want the cheaper aftermarket ones that's really all yer gonna find. My aftermarket for the '01 is all I could get too for what I wanted (a 1 piece headlight) and had the strip in it.
    You could just not wire them up..
    I like these ones. Still have leds in em but look better than the other 'wavy' strip.

    Yeah that's what I'm looking for. I just personally don't like the led strip. You say they are wired separate?

    Yeah I can see that on the pictures. Just leave em unplugged if u want. Bout all you can do.
    And just want to throw this out there.. Not sure if you care or not.. But I hear that the output on those are lacking. Idk how much. But if it turns out you don't like em you can always return em..
