    Thanks! I like to be a little different. It all started from just wanting to have a light in the hood scoop and eventually evolved into what you see now. I'm still not quite done yet...:D

    There are more and larger pics in my gallery.

    Just a few LEDs...
    The 2005 - 2011 Tacomas have a much larger scoop that you can actually put a Rigid Industries 10" light bar in. I saw a video on YouTube that gave me the idea. Unfortunately the scoop on the 2012+ is much smaller and at the time a real light bar was not an option.

    I took the scoop off, removed the black plastic insert and cut the back of the "scoop" out. I then put in a modified version of something I bought from China. The LEDs in the scoop are actually connected a controller that I salvaged from work. This is an old video but it shows some of the capabilities.



    There is also a guy on here that sells a hood scoop bracket and light bar for the 2012+ that would give you some usable light output.

    Here is the link to the thread:
