4-Light Raptor Mod

Since I purchased my truck in August, I've been looking at ideas for the Raptor Mod that look a little different from the rest. I was in a bit of a bind because I didn't want to spend the ridiculous money it costs for plastic to upgrade the grille to a "TRD Pro" but I didn't like the way the two-light mod looked for the TRD ORPs.

I took a little bit of a gamble and instead went a row down from where everyone else goes and did 2 on each side. For anyone looking here are the results:



I'm a bit of a stickler when it comes to symmetry, so I was nervous about it being a little low of vertical center on the upper grille. That being said, I'd love to know your guys' thoughts!

Also, if you're doing the mod, I'd highly suggest getting some quick connects for each light. That way, if any of them go out you can replace them quickly OR if you move along to a different style of light, you can do so easily without rewiring.

Looks good ACC. I was in your same situation and I also went with the 4 lights - I like the way it looks.

Here are the lights I used in case anyone is interested: iJDMTOY-LED-Lighting-Cruiser-Projector
(We'll see how well they hold up over time.)

I like that they were already wired up with quick connects - made them a breeze to install. They're really bright and low profile when off.

Anyone who wants to make big money should make a "T4R Starter Pack" with the following:

Red "D-Ring" Shackles to put on factory tie down spots
"Raptor Lights"
American flag rear window decal
Laminx yellow fog light covers



Edit, I made this:

Looks nice, I thought about doing this when I had these style amber LED's, nice to see what it would have looked like. Props for being different

I get a small cut of the profits - then maybe I can afford the actually useful upgrades I want (Like that slimline winch bumper - which looks awesome on your rig BTW)

Haha for sure! And thank you, but honestly useful mods are kind over-rated, some of the most fun installs have been silly unneeded bolt on projects!

I'm really liking these. How hard were they to install? Is there an installation guide online anywhere for these? I already added them to my cart.
