Lights behind grill

Hey guys

I been thinking about added some more forward lighting for the back roads so I can see better. Has anyone done this? Will lights fit back there? If you have some pics post them please. Thanks Brad

It has been done a few times... I am going to do it once I strike a few other priorities off my to do list. There are a couple write-ups below where the guys used hella 500's behind the grille. I am going to do the same thing, however I am going to use Hella Black magic lights so they aren't as 'white looking' behind there when they are off. I want them to be less noticeable. I also included a pic of the black magics on a tacoma to give you the idea of what i'm going to do.

Here is one write-up

Here is another

If you get to it before I do post some pics!!

very easy, just remove grille ( 4 small bolts up top) and clips in bottom, then there is the fiberglass "header panel" behind there wich acts as a very nice shelf to mount lights. almost any light will fit, there is plenty of room. You need a "billet" style grille for the light to shine through without blocking the light though, great, clean mod.

I have been looking at doing the same thing.

However I dont have a billet grill and on my truck it just wont flow right. so i did some searching and found the LED super bight Bar style lights, like the ones they use on the baja truck/buggies. Measured and between the horizontal grill bars is about 3inches, most of the bar lights are about 3.25inch but that includes the housing and all that.

At some point im gonna get a pair and build some brackets and have them mounted up.
