    thanks for the comments. Im waiting on a topper and I have a 1” front lift to install and then I think it’ll be “done”
    Incredibly helpful details, thank you very much!

    12,000 miles on her now. Love the truck. A little over 2,000 miles has been towing the Toyota behind it. That number will increase hopefully soon.

    waiting on my ARE Overland topper. Not many more mods left on the list but that list is constantly evolving.

    Assuming the Laramie has fog lights already, then yes, it will be plug and play for you.

    Baja Designs makes two different kits. One for halogen fog trucks and one for LED fog trucks. Each kit is plug and play for its respective truck.

    I had to source parts because my truck didn’t have fog lights at all.

I will have the 30 in light bar in there as well, but that may not even be an issue. Do the plastic tube guards just clip in as well? Thanks so much! Love your build! Mine supposedly ships from Saltillo to AEV next Wed!

    It’s nice that the 19+ have a secure connection. From the installation manual, it appears the fog light bezel is bolted in. The 13 - 18 requires RTV to secure to the fog light bezel to the bumper (lame).

    Well thanks for doing all the hard work for me regarding fog lights on a Tradesman with an AEV bumper - that is the direction I am heading. How did you solve the wiring issue and are you using the factory headlight control with the fog light switch?
    Can’t wait to see your truck when you receive it and to follow your build

    Thanks for the comments. In order to remove the grille, I had to remove the bumper’s upper tube and the plastic bumper guards that go over the tube and recovery points. Hopefully you can see that in the pics i attached. But, that’s a pretty quick job once you pop the fog light bezels out

    Looks great! It seems like a small thing, but it really completes the look.

    Since my original post, I added “night edition”
    bighorn headlights with the black bezels.
