    Looks good! It appears that they mount underneath the bed rail system, is there a recommended mounting point if you don't have those? Also if you have a toolbox that would block the front light, can you purchase just the sides?

    The light illuminate the bed best when mounted under the rails. A tool box with a bed that has the rails works as the lights light up under the box.

    I am happy to customize how ever you would like.

    Here is a local TacomaWorld members custom job I did:

    For the hood, do they just stick on underneath it? I worry, due to the elements, that they'd come off and fall into the engine bay. Any thoughts? You mentioned it comes with a hood pin, I'm sure that could easily be changed to a standard rocker switch, huh?

    I replace the tape that the lights come with adding a high strength tape, the failure rate is extremely low. Yes the hood light kits include a hood pin switch that is mounted in an existing empty hole.

    This was my first hood light kit back in 2012, lights are mounted directly over the engine/supercharger. Lots of heat and they never came off. I changed the mounting location to the top of the hood becuase the LEDs are a little blinding. :cool:

    So the $60 comes with everything you need; lights, wiring, switch, etc.? How do you power them, just direct to the positive battery and then a ground?

    Yes the inline fuse holder gets wired to the battery, the ground gets wired to the hood pin switch.

    If you would prefer a regular switch, i can substitute for the hood pin switch.

    If the hood light kit is purchased with bed light kit, the hood light kit is $50.

    If the hood light kit is purchased by itself it's $60

    Do you have pics of how the leds tie into each other and a layout of the wiring harness/switch setup?

    I can definitely vouch for these. I bought a kit from Matt for my Tacoma about 3-4 years ago and it was top notch. Emailed him and asked if he made kits for Tundras and he did. Ordered a kit and he mailed them out the next day. Really good guy to work with and his lighting kits are awesome IMO

    Looking forward to installing these next weekend!
