Interesting. Can you flip the bar so the lights can be mounted under it as opposed to on top?

For powder coating may I suggest you ask for something along the lines of a

Polyester TGIC Super Durable or a Polyurethane Super Durable. If you can get either of these that are also Anti Graffiti type coatings I would recommend. Lastly perhaps a fine sand texture in the above may be the most aesthetically appealing.

Strongly suggest no river or peel type textures even if they are SDs.

Need any powder help message me.

I like the look. I think it will look really good with that style light, but I'm not sure about a bar light.
Easy way to fix that problem... now i need round spots!

Hope we see a update soon from one premier. There is probably more companies working on a work around for the safety sense for the lighting.

- I like the look.

- When mounting lights behind the grille, you lose a lot of the "spill" light. This is especially true for the Baja Designs LP Series Lights with the "side light". Also anything behind the lower grille, is like a giant fog light to me.

- The 2020 5th Gen now has the radar plate mounted in the grille.

- Keeps the light at or above the headlight level, giving you better light further down the road.



Specs:



- Does not interfere with the Safety Sense System.

- Adjustable (the bar can slide back and forth to accommodate a deeper light)

- Easy to install, No cutting, and no bumper removal. Can be easily installed from the engine bay.

- Can accommodate various lights, up to a 30" light bar.

- Strong, no light vibrations.
Very clean setup!

So you will not have to remove the front bumper?
Correct, do not need to remove the bumper. Install takes about 30 minutes.

Funny you mention that, I ran a Defiant bar on my Taco many moons ago, similar, however I am not using the frame horns. Using the top of the crash bar. I will share more on this later.

Maybe you can do install pics how you ran the lighting into the cab and hooking the wires up. I have been doing all my research on which wires I need from bajadesigns. Running these wires with the correct switch inside the cab you also need the correct volt push button for them. Just a little info if anyone else is looking to do on the newer 4runners.
There will be a fully detailed, illustrated install guide shortly. (Taking photos this weekend). As for my wiring Lol, it's very elaborate. I have a SwitchPros panel, the distribution block is mounted inside a waterproof housing (I know this is waterproof regardless) so when you pop the hood, it just looks like another fuse box. All my wiring runs to that. It is mounted behind my air box. Previous 4Runner I had is mounted behind the existing fuse box. Since the addition of safety sense that area is occupied by a new fuse box from the factory.

Lookin forward to hearing more news!

Well I weigh 185lbs and I was standing on it. The brackets that go through the grille are .375 Hot Rolled Carbon Steel, the mounting points behind the grille are .188 Hot Rolled Carbon Steel. Massive overkill. It's tied to the bracket behind the grille with 8 1/4-20 flange bolts.

Wow, really appreciate the powder-coating info. I will definitely be in touch. As for the flip, yes you can flip it in theory. Need to try and see how it turns out.

Spots are classic look, IMO. I have a secret obsession with all the 4WD's in Australia, a lot of them run a similar set up.

This was mentioned earlier, going to see if I can work it into the design and see if it will work with the safety-sense.

A 27" light bar fits perfect in the upper grill section. This one from apexoverland was the only one I can find, the mounting holes even line up to existing holes that are behind the grill. Only downside is that you need to trim out the upper grill and retain the outer structure.

Bump. Any updated info on this mount? Been researching options for my 2020 non-pro and this looks intriguing.

If you play around a bit with the mounting brackets, you don't have to trim at all.

I could have but I did this so I didn't have to buy the upper grill trim to go with the pro grill. At the time there were no cheap options other than going oem.
