    @MESO - can you tell me where I can purchase a couple of the black plastic caps for the KC lights? Had to reinstall my lights and had to sacrifice the caps to get to the screws. I bought caps at Lowe's but were too big.

    I forgot that. From what I’ve seen the hex has been shown as a 3rd gen dbl cab application. From what it seems like his main builds are from his own truck being a third gen TRD level non sunroof offering ~ since he has that readily available for testing. He has been making strides above and beyond for other models though.

    BD5 installed 2 weeks ago.....some pics from them...they have been cleaned up but no pics until this coming week.


    I have already eliminated the slight issues with the Silicone on the bottom holes. These were quick pics after install!


    A single BD white rocklight on these is INSANELY bright! It helped us a ton on our camping trip last weekend.


    Camping at 10,000' and setting up was the best part....the single light literally was amazing....almost TOO bright!

    I ended up using Black RTV for the seals between the BD5 and the cab. Just felt like it would hold up better than simply using silicone. If I were to do it all over, and I might, I would use RTV for the spaces that the wires from the BD rock lights go into the lower holes to pass the wires thru.

    So after two weeks simply waterproof! Also, the outer amber lights will be set up as safety flashers/chase lights connected to the switchpros 9100 but still working on that as we speak!

    Anybody know where I can buy replacement lenses for KC Cyclones? I have cracks in my far right red and clear.
    I must have hit something because I know I didn’t over tighten them. I need one clear and one red.

    I pm’d KC Tyler already, but just wanted to check with y’all. Maybe somebody has extras.

    finally installed my BD 4 yesterday. Whoever suggested using a 1/2 in. bit to drill out the OEM bolts is a moron. Use a 1/4 or 3/8 max. 1/2 puts way to large of a hole in and tears up the sheet metal. I probably should have painted it first, will look for matte black. I used those handy solder filed joiners with hot glue on either end. Also used rtv gasket maker for the back AND a small silicone bead around the outer perimeter...cause I'm not F'ing around with any more leaks. I think this is a good product, thoughtfully and tastefully designed. I've told Meso this directly, but the one thing that I think would make it better is including longer bolts to attach the individual pods, larger and through driller holes to attached the pods and nuts to hold them down. I don't think rely on bolt as "self tapping" into plastic is a solid engineering choice considering I have $400 in light pods attached that way now.
