Make an offer on the BMW and its all yours. Its a project car at the moment.
Ok, real quick about the wife's car and we can move on, right? right!...
So she wanted to customize her 07 Honda Fit so we did wheels and tires, body kit, yada yada yada, and since I do vinyl graphics, we came up with a theme of different shape and size stars that start at the front and enlarge towards the rear. It used to wrap up and around the rear window. She recently was rear-ended by another damn female driver (sorry lady tundra owners) and the rear quarter panel had to be repaired. Instead of repairing the graphics, I am currently designing a new theme for it and will just redo the entire car. Its actually pretty nice looking in person and people around here arent used to females riding around in modified cars, so she is enjoying the attention. That and she loves seeing people react to her "shocker" decal on the rear.
Ok, on to the truck...
Yea, I used the Recon Dodge Ram LED kit. Each light requires 3 holes to be drilled. Its originally a 5 light kit, but our roofs just arent wide enough for them to look right. The lights are set back 5" from the windshield and 12" apart on center. This allowed them to follow the windshield's contour and helps the overall flow of the light line. 5" just worked out for the contour of the roof to match the contour of the base to the CCLs as well. They sit flush and cleared all obstocles under the headliner. Total installation ran about 4 hours start to finish. I have pics of the install, so I may put together a small how-to for 1st gens that are interested. The lights are very bright and look incredible at night. The above photos also show the 6000K 55W HIDs in the headlights and foglights.
Your manliness is not in question, anyone who drills holes in the roof skin has nothing to worry about definitely not for the faint of heart, and the "wife's car" is cool too ! The graphics are unique and eye catching and along with those rims :tu: Nice work on both. Scott
i had my doubts when you first posted the pictures to get opinions from everybody, but now that it's done, it looks awesome! i may have to think about doing something like this over the summer when im home from school.
as for the wife's car...well i guess everybody else said enough. it actually does look pretty cool...just as long as it's the wife's car!
I guess I'm gonna be the odd man out... I just don't think cab lights belong on anything smaller than an HD-class truck. I certainly don't think it "adds" to the contours of the Tundra roofline. That's just my $0.02. :beatsme:
I have to give kudos, though, for the clean install. Nicely done. Takes [email protected] to drill into your truck! :tu:
i don't think i would ever do this mod and it looks awesome! good decision on going with four lights instead of five. spacing looks excellent. a nice compliment to your truck.
now honestly, how in the world do you expect anyone not to comment on the hot pink car sitting next to your truck? it's eye grabbin' hot pink!? i think i was checking out the car more than the truck in the pics where they were together. now if your lights were lime green then i'd have stayed more focused. HA!
I have never been a fan of cab lights on any truck... but for what its worth yours looks no worse than any other i have seen (thats meant as a compliment in a twisted sorta way) sweet looking tundra! I wont be installing cab lights on mine however !!
