    Custom sliders with courtesy lights

    Hey folks, I am in the market for some rock sliders for my 05 LX470. I would like to integrate the factory running board lights in to them, or at the very least the light wiring harness. My question is, has anyone done this or would anyone like to?

    Sliders: Anyone here fabricate their own?

    Been dragging my feet on ordering sliders bc of course - cost. Haven't even gotten around to actual mods bc I am currently up to my ass with parts and labor costs baselining my truck. Was heavily leaning towards WKOR, but their 6-9 week fab time I expect is actually more like 9-12 weeks from...

    Stretched FJ40 hardtop kits?

    So I am planning a build and want to use Aquala's aluminum 18" stretch parts/kit but it doesn't come with the sides or top. Does anyone make these? Or is it something you have to fab yourself? If fab, is there any tutorials or threads on here (or anywhere) that explain how to do it?
