Just finished installing Hella Driving/Fog lights on my Tacoma.

Purchased them online for $39.99.

I decided to install them in the lower part of the bumper. I trimmed a little off the top of each square so the lights would fit and it also gave me the ability to adjust them up/down/left/right if necessary.

I found it easier to remove the bumper to do the install, plus wiring was a helluva lot easier.. =D

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, but I think I'll upgrade the H7 bulbs to something a little "whiter". Either Silverstars or some bulbs from SupremePowerParts.

yeah. I'm addicted to mods.

I just installed the Hellas, and I already ordered 80W Super White bulbs for them.

OH MY GOD, I just modded my mod.

I'm a sick man.

My Audi is actually the mod queen though. This truck is pretty darn good from the factory.

what did you mount the fog lights to? I have some fog lights and there really isnt a good place I have found to mount them. I was thinking of making some kind of metal braket that comes off the frame rails.

I drilled a hole through the lower part of the plastic bumper.

It's very sturdy. I can adjust the lights up/down/left/right and the plastic is flexible, the lights will move with it.

I'm happy with the way it turned out, it looks stock.

I can email you more pics if you want. YotaTech limits to 48K, which is embarrasingly small.

To bad you got pencil beams. I bought a pair of those and wish I never did. I have two pairs of fog lights and found that the regular circle fog lights are way better than the pencil beams.

I had Hella 550s on my '97;I just trimmed the valance and bolted them just under the bumper using the stock holes on each side of the license plate.
