    Really happy with everything. I will admit that the XL80s have taken a few days to grow on me, but will be ready to run at night at TRR. I like a more integrated look, but went with these instead of the 30 light bar due to loss of light. Didn’t want to spend the money and lose 30-50% of the light. Have to say that I am starting to like the look. 3rd brake light from GJ Motorsports with the BD lights are fantastic! TMX guys were great for the install!

    Looks great and I have a similar set-up. TJ's 3rd brake light is awesome. I installed mine at his shop and was blown away when I saw how they are each cut out of a solid block of billet aluminum. I opted to have my XL80 brackets powdercoated black to match the lights/SDHQ brackets. Enjoy! :cheers:

    Great idea on the brackets. I thought I was done right now, guess not.

    Nice setup! Just curious, what do you mean when you said the above? Regarding growing on you. Was there something not as expected? Thanks :)

    I would rather have the lights with a more subtle, integrated look. I don’t want light bars on the roof. The lights themselves work fantastic., which is why I went with them. They do the job they are meant to do, and they do a great job. Looks wise, I would have been happier with a 30’ bar behind the grill. However, now that I have had it a few days, the looks of the A pillar mounted lights are growing on me.

    Nice. My truck was in the same day for collars and springs . Was trying to get a picture of all the raptors in the shop while your 3rd brake light was on. It’s bright. The TMX guys are going to cost me a fortune . I am going back for the SVC bump stop system next.

    The 3rd brake light kit is on the short list .

    I almost forgot what their shop looks like without my truck on one of the lifts. :p

    Just you wait until the tmx guys get you to the most expensive "stage of all"...

    The " I just bought a superduty and a 102" trailer to tow my raptor." stage.

    and then you'll want a carli pintop setup and some wheels and tires to match your raptor. might as well do the long travel airbags too.

    Then a new front bumper, and more bd lights. :batman2:

    I like the look of the "A" pillar lights...but of course it's a personal thing. It looks like you went with the wide lighting lens, you should have went with the Combo lens then you would have 2 long range Spots per light.
    I do agree on the lighting behind the grille, I install the 10" bar down low and am planning on cutting out the grille to get all of my light back...
