    What type of light pattern do those reverse lights have? I ve been thinking of doing the same thing, but can t decide what lights to get. The stock reverse lights suck a**. I ve been messing around with the the Viewpoint function on Rigid website, and was thinking of just getting a floodlight or two.

    I used the “work/flood” beam pattern. I was torn between work pattern and the wide cornering but ended up on the works only because of a smoking deal on eBay for two flush lights with no harness.

    I was on the fence about these, wasn't really digging them from the photos I saw on their site. They look good on that Tundra. :thumbsup: Might have to pair them with my Nova's :)

    I got the OPT7 tail light LED bar and I have a license plate frame back up camera or else I would’ve put both on. In combination with my spyder tail lights with a ‘brighter’ incandescent bulb the auto store gave me I can see everything in reverse and I live in an area with no street lights 4C68D4DB-6D1D-4411-8BD6-8530717859B4.jpgCE1FB067-2695-458E-B1CF-DF5921DD3879.jpg

    Installed a 3" spacer lift on the front. Now I want to add a 1" to the rear.

    Installed Hooke Road black bumpers front and rear. It took forever.... I still need to wire in the new lights that came with it.

    Why did it take forever? Fitment issues? Also, any shots of the rear bumper?

    It took forever because I mistakenly pre-installed the lights. The small Allen button head bolts were a one-time-use because the recessed Allen shape was rounded out after the first install. I had to drill them out. I needed some extra arms to align the front bumper, but was able to get the rear bumper on 100% by myself. I like the step at the ends of the rear bumper. Helps my short butt get into the bed. I also like that the rear bumper had a pre-cut hole to relocate the tow wire plug up and out of the way next to the license plate.

    Awesome. Thanks for the pics! Yea, cheap no-name LEDs always seem like they have hex bolts that are factory-seconds in both hardness and size that fit no metric or SAE Allen key.

    Any idea what that T-shaped cutout to the right of the license plate is?

    The "T" shape cutout is for holding a chain. You wouldn't want to pull from there though.

    Brown santa brought shiny things in the mail today.

    20210112_172338.jpg

    I paid more for the Fabtech 6" kit than some of the other options, but I think the other options are 4.5/5" lifts with bigger spacers for their 6/7/8" lifts. From what I could find the Fabtech is a true 6" kit. Actually probably more because I measure 7" on the crossmember. The location of the mount for the tie rod is also much higher than the others. :spending:

    I dont think the 3" rear block they gave me is big enough lmao.

    I also washed it with soap yesterday for the first time in 6 months. It cleans up pretty good. :rofl:

    That was the the plan when I ordered it a month ago. I'm going to look at a base model RCSB tundra this weekend that may end up with the lift instead. :spy:

    Got the shifter shaft wrapped in blue small diameter paracord. Wrapped in Tessa tape first so it wouldn’t slide around against the smooth metal. Turned out good!

    Thanks! They are BMF DRT's in 17's. I ended up finding a small offroad shop that had them for sale on Facebook marketplace brand new for 400 bucks near me so I jumped all over it awhile back. The fake beadlock bolts started to rust last year so I replaced them with stainless bolts and they have been great since!
