    Nice. I have a set of single row LED pods that I've been sitting on. Can't make myself cut out the rear bumper.

    I previously did the square pods on my 4runner. Ran it to a switch to use them as auxiliary or reverse lights.

    Hello everyone.
    I have been working on my truck (named Sucker Punch by my youngest daughter), and I have been working on some mods.

    * Bought new wheels from Vision
    * Changed the running boards
    * Painted the grill with bedliner
    * Painted the truck with beliner at bottom and roof, and OD green the rest
    * Blacked out the panels inside
    * Redid headliner with black cloth, but will be redoing it with Texas flag
    * Did some scavenger hunt at salvage yard and got new shifter knob, tie down track system, among others
    * Blacked and refinished steering wheel

    Things coming down the pipe:

    * New head and tail lights in black
    * New Bilstein front and rear with leveling fronts
    * Front brake calipers, rotors, and pads upgrade
    * Headliner lined with Texas flag
    * Rebadging (I painted all badges black) and cool factor stickers

    Then mechanical:

    * Figure out noise when engaging lo 4
    * Figure out why it is pulling to the right even after alignment and tie rod ends replacement

    That's pretty much it for now. Loving my Sucker Punch!

    I got lucky that the yard where I usually go brought in like five "new" 2nd Gen Tundras, cause they had the same two or three for a very long while.

    Yeah, some dont like cutting into a perfectly good vehicle. Me, if it will make my life easier, Ill do it. Last night was the first time I used the lights (truck has been parked in the garage with nowhere to go), and they work very well. 10pm, heavy rain, no problem seeing the entrance.

    Yeah, i think i'm gonna go down that route, i dont really have anything red on the outside anyway. Now the only think to figure out is how to do such a neat outline around all the round edges :D

    I want to do the same mod when it warms up outside. How do you like that brand? How helpful are the lights? Seems like Nilight is the other preferred brand for a cheap, decent quality light.

    Ive had good luck with MicTuning in the past, so I decided to go with them again. One note in them though, the way the bumper curves every which way, you will be limited on placement to get them sitting relatively flat. A single row would be easier to do and would also allow you to use the curve of the bumper to aim them a bit.
    I would actually suggest the single version of these. If the ones I put in my bumper dont last as long as others Ive used, I will make a patch panel and swap over.

    I will take a picture of the reverse lights on the bumper tonight. Woking on the trailer, so cant move it to show output at the moment.

    haha. I was wondering why you posted a picture with no lights twice. So much for OE reverse lights. :rofl::rofl: Thanks for the pics!

    Yeah. OE lights dont put out enough for the camera to focus. You can kinda make out that there is something there, but the LEDs bring it to life.

    I had planned to install a new set of Michelin Defenders the end of this Summer, but a brand new set of take-off LTX M/S2s popped up on Craigslist - I figure I saved myself at least $500.00 that I can put towards my ARH purchase.

    Looks badass!:cool: do you have anything extra for the read suspension? The sag doesnt seem to be too big with all the load in the back. Especially on dirt.
