aka Marker/clearence...Zach doesn't know how to speel...lol.

They look better on big trucks, I've seen them on rangers at school and they look way too big.

Clearance lights on a Ranger are like putting army men next to your ding-dong to make it look like a bigger than it is. lol


Thats just my opinion! Maybe if your truck is jacked way up or something, remotely stock will look goofy imo.

Yeah... I've seen some on the smaller old style tacoma's that look ok but I can't think of any Rangers... it's easy to overdo... that's for sure

Here's a few, I think they look sweet. IF, done correctly.





Oh and you also need lift and tires to pull it off, otherwise you will look like an old man truck

I get a lot of good comments about my lighted lund visor and i think it looks really good. I also have clearance lights in the plastic trim on the bottom of the front bumper!
At night it looks really cool too!

clearance lights dont look good on any ranger unless they are lifted.

Not a fan of clearance lights IMO you have to go really big in order to pull if off. I would say steer clear

hmmm.....i don't necessarily agree with 'gotta be big to pull it off', this mod and visor mods are a love/hate thing for people.

hmmm....

eh...i had a brain fart when i posted that.

ment to say: "hmmm.....i don't necessarily agree with 'gotta be big to pull it off', But being lifted sure does add to it! This mod and visor mods are a love/hate thing for people."




NOPE.....I believe i wanted to possibly do the superduty lamps up there. BUT, i've been lusting after this Lund Lunar Visor for about 4 years now...now I have it!! Got it the day the pic was taken(yesterday), and it was just mocked in there. doors shut, wireing jimmy rigged into the battery terminals, amber lenses just sitting up there. lol...too impatient to wait for the final install. lol. My paint was ordered today, and should be painted next week.

I've been toying with this idea for a few months now. I think that the 2nd truck looks best. put the 3 middle ones closer together.

Welcome to the dark side, dude. I love my visor. Wish I wasn't too lazy and actually hooked up the lights, LOL!
