    I think they are normally around $325 but I got them for less because Mikes welder was down so I had my brother do it.
    Then I ground them, painted and put on. This might have been Mikes last set but the guys from Toybox should have them soon. Now if only I could talk Mike into a bumper or two....[​IMG]
    Mike, My brother will weld it too!....hehe

    Storm Trooper: I am about to wire some lights to my light bar. I was wondering how you have your wired. Can you send an image of the wiring and how it is routed inside the cab? Thanks for any response.

    Re: Rooftop light wiring..Chris

    Thanks guys, The truck is getting there.
    Chris, Here is some pictures of how the off-road lights are ran. The hole in the roof was there when I got the truck but they were just taped up. I used a peice of tubing w/alum. core to run the wires through. If you are careful you might just drill through the top roof layer then pull the wires into the dome light area. Once the wires go into the dome light area they go through the back at the hard top seal (remove hardtop). You can then run them along the seal and down to the carpet. After running under the carpet, mine run into a switch box I made. It controls each light. Some guys use relays to turn them all on but I like the individual control. Silicone all holes and maybe even some of the areas allong the seal (let dry before installing the top). PM me if you have any other questions. Dave

    VERY SWEET. Im currently making a set for my truck and hope you can answer a few questions for me.

    Is the main tube 2"? How far to the steps extend from the body seam? What wall thickness is the tubing used? What size tube for the steps?

    THanks for your help.
