    What’s your budget? The NSV hood bulge light bar is clean but very costly.

    I’ll have to look into it. I would like a nice clean look. But nothing to drain the pocket book. Cheaper the better, but I kinda know ya get what ya pay for these days.:(

    Depends on your luck. :D Some members have bought cheap ones off Amazon and had great luck. I just can't see spending the money that some of the name brands charge.

    What area of your Tundra are you wanting to place the light bar? What's your budget? The BIG 2 are, Baja Designs and Rigid, both are quality but a bit pricey

    I know rigid makes some really good light bars. Bumper or hood. Roof mounted ones I’ve heard makes lots of noise rolling down the highway.

    I'm not sure if the group buy is still available on with @Headlight Revolution for the NSV hood one

    Would have to throw Cali Raised lights in the mix, they're a vendor here, and they're having a 15% off sale right now. I've heard nothing but good things about their products.

    If you are after light output I would skip the pricey single row in the bulge and just a decent double row behind the grille. I have one in the bumper too but it is a little work to keep clean and if you have a problem it is a lot more work to get to.

    Caliraised already commented above but a good cheap option is their led pods that drop in the fog lights. Super easy install and pretty bright and doesn’t hurt the wallet any. It’s not a bar.. but a good alternative to save some pennies if you wanna wait to buy a more expensive option
