Light Mount - Your Thoughts

Hey guys, I've been working on a mount for the 5th Gen 4Runners, and wanted to get your feedback. I designed this for numerous reasons.



- 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.

Preliminary pricing: $350

I think that looks great! Do you have an idea of pricing/production schedules? That seems like exactly what I want

Thank you! I am receiving the final revision from powder coating today, I am going to install and make sure everything fits/works as intended. After that, it should be a 2 Week lead time to get production units together. I will have pricing tomorrow. Stay tuned.

I dig it! very similar to the "defiant" light bar mount i ran on my titan years ago. Guessing it runs in and bolts to the frame horns? If so, super solid.

I was working on getting prices myself from Rago fabr. For mounts and cross bar to remove my front bumper and was planning on putting LP6ís behind my front grille. This was my only option I was finding with that safety sense. That set up looks pretty good. Looks like I will be holding off till I see what these cost. So you will not have to remove the front bumper?

Would this work on a pre-facelift 5th gen?

Definitely interested depending on pricing. Looks really good!

The only thing I see it looks like your can move the lights out further since there is adjustments to where you want the lights mounted. I already bought raptor lights I did not add yet. I was waiting till I added these cause of removing the front bumper. Also it will depend on the cost of this bracket. 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.

Looks great!

Nice, clean, and looks like a relatively easy install.

Great job! Definitely interested.

I think this looks great! Could it be mounted on the bottom part of the grille for those of us that don't have the safety sense box?
