    went through a carwash for the first time since retrofitting. Headlights condensate like a mofo. I believe it's coming from the backside of the housings where the bulb is, because I used a ton buytl tape and silicone around the edges. Guess I'll need to open them back up and dry em out and start over :/

    Monte, I think you need to see a shrink.
    I mean, I'm not sure if there's a known medical condition for this lighting problem you have, but I'm guessing it might have to do with getting stuffed into a dark closet as a child or maybe you just didn't like that dark womb or something. :notsure:

    Question, since my 7 inch off road lights don't fit behind my grille should I; 1) Cut holes in my Satoshi mesh and mount them in there so they are still in the area of the grille, 2) Buy an original factory grille insert and cut holes in that and mount them, 3) or just mount them on my bumper? haha

    I'm also wondering how those lights don't fit behind your satoshi... I have the same ones with his bulbs and they fit with very minimal touching at the top of the mesh...

    Yeah Im not sure either! I think the 00 radiator is a lot closer. I drilled some holes in the radiator support and the back of the lights just dont fit and slant upward. I guess I can fabricate something that extends from the support... Hmm because I really want them behind the grille because you can see right behind the mesh when it is day

    I made some brackets out of angle iron that bolted to the rad support then the light bolted to that so it gives about an inch more room forward too

    I've got them on my 4runner and on my tacoma. So far I'm neither impressed, nor disappointed. I've had better blades, and also far worse. For the price though they're solid. :cool:
