    Is this a fashion satement? I really don't get it. You want your low capacity, sport truck to look like a large capacity hauler? That shit is so ugly. I'm lost, lights from a widebody? That don't improve your driving view? Just added to meet DOT vis requirements? Just make you look like a semi? I so don't get this. Every light I add adds to my vision. Or doesn't get added.

    Aesthetics are a thing. If you disagree, there isn't much here we can do to help you.

    Nobody here really “wanted a Ford”. And it’s OK to call them Raptor lights, since that’s the vehicle that inspired them I think. Lots of car builders have used Mustang 2 front suspension, or Jaguar rears and didn’t want a Mustang 2 (has anyone really??) or a Jag. Cadillac style taillights, big rig bed exit exhaust, etc… I don’t hate Ford, they’ve built a lot of trucks over the years and we’re the direct inspiration for the original First Gen Tundra. But I don’t want a Ford. OK to give em props. The Raptor is badass.

    Got my grill installed today, gonna try to wire up the lights tomorrow. Any suggestion on to what fuse to tap into so they turn on with my DRL?

    I vote we just start calling them TRD pro lights

    Seems like my fuse box is different than the one pictured in post 13. I have the fuse tap and everything ready to go. If anyone can guide me to where I can plug this thing. Thanks

    here is the pic from post 13

    Tap into the headlights, HEAD left or right. Lights will only turn on when your lights are on.

    Installed my grill today. The raptor lights they sent do not fit in the spaces they are extra small.

    update: I was in the wrong row. Moved up and everything fit

    ^^^ I might be wrong but I think others are using 1 row above the row you are using. Not talking about the very upmost row.

    2 questions. How are they to small, are you looking to fill in the slight empty space above and below the light and grill? What do your lights look like for comparison?
