    I have had no luck by search, so I thought I would throw this out there to see. I am looking for either someone who already makes, or is interested in designing/building a roof mounted light bar for a 1st gen Tacoma. (In my case, I want it to fit an extended cab)

    Where do I want it to mount?

    Either directly in front of, or directly after where the roof changes height.

    How do I want it to mount?

    I am open to several ideas, but I am thinking that most likely I will have to drill mounting holes and use nuts/washers on the inside of the cab.

    Anyone currently make this, or is anyone willing to custom build one?

    To increase possible incentive, anyone who has a 1st gen, and would be interested in getting one, post here. Perhaps if we generate enough interest a vendor here will take on the task.

    Yeah. Not a bad idea, but I am looking for more of a light bar mount that is full across, allowing me to change out the light bar as desired. That and I also want mine to install further back where the roof line changes. Thanks for the heads up though.

    Always thought it would be nice to have an option for our trucks.
    Either mount right after the top of the windshield or where you are suggesting.

    Sierra expeditions (I think) is making one or has made one for first gens. I plan in buying one when he let's us know how it goes. There is a thread for second gens about it but towards the end he mentions a first gen one!
