    Waiting for my c4 bumper to be finished up, so in the interim got creative with lighting.

    2 $12 brackets from Home Depot (rated for 300lbs), a few self tapping screws and a set of Baja designs LP6’s fit perfectly in the front. NO issues with front parking sensors and initial neighborhood cruise with TSS produced zero issues.

    Looks nice man, i love the bumper lights. Looks semi retro but modern enough with the yellow LEDs. I'm working on my own brackets for a 20" light bar in the grill. No way I'm paying $700 for heretic studios.

    Too many, but not enough....
    The good thing about a giant grille is it looks like you can fit like 5 light bars back there.

    yea that’s a total rip off.. I saw someone who used a Tacoma light bar bracket to make it work!

    they are these ones Samman F150 Hood Light Mount... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B086D2H25R?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

    Got it done. Mounted the light to the lower front grill instead of the bumper reinforcement. The camera wire is a problem when mounted to the other way. Now I can still remove the entire front end and not have to remove the light bar. Thanks for the link. That may be my next project.

    This is the one i used. Its 18000 lumens. I had aftermarket lights on my tacoma and 4runner for years and they never failed. These use Cree LED filaments just like the high end rigid lights.

    check the measurements and get a Baja designs onx6- had a 20in on my 16 tundra and it put my 30in s8, and 2 sets of squadron pros, and the 18 headlights (swapped in) to shame

    Thanks! I do my best thinkin when I can't sleep at night. That's usually when I come up with ideas for brackets and attachments. The light bar is on Amazon. It's pretty bright, 18k lumens I believe. I decided to mount it to the grill instead due to the camera wiring. Did a factory type switch from ebay so it looks stock on the dash.
