    Any 2020's out there with round lights behing the grille? It seems like the only behind grille option with that TSS wall in the way. I have my brackets, just not sure which rounds to go with. Pics if you have them please.

    I am looking also for light bar and behind grill bracket for a 2020 Toyota 4runner limited and haven't found any either. If anybody knows of anybody that makes them please let me know.

    Rago Fabrication makes the brackets. They are incredibly adjustable. But if you have the black square in your grille like I do, i don't think a light bar will work well. The middle will be completely blocked and it might throw light in weird directions in the engine bay

    Yeah, I was thinking the same. Seen a 4r with these mounted behind the grill. Looked sharp. Didn't have the sensor but where they were mounting it wouldn't have been an issue.

    Speaking with Cali led bar I had this 32 inch bar in my Tacoma. Jake said it will still work in the 2020 4runner. But the issue I asked him and did not get a answer was the lower black piece that is below the safety sense will block out part of the section of the light which I think is about 6 inches. But I’m really looking at possibly if you take a router and router out the solid black pieces there it looks like it will not effect the safety sense since that is not connected to it. There is also another company that has 27 inch led bar to go about in the other section but the light is not as bright. If you look on Cali web site you can see the picture on the 2020 with the led bar installed. Not sure which way I will go. All I can tell you is when I had that bar in my Tacoma I loved it at night on the back roads especially when you have a lot of deer around you.

    Hey Rabid Raccoon, where you in Pa? I have all the same stuff in a invoice deciding to buy from Rago. I’m looking to do the same. Any install pics would help with hooking up the wiring. I plan on adding the push button inside the interior. How is the light output behind the grill? I’m going with the LP6’s

    Also which bracket setup are you using? Rago said there’s will work.

    Hey Don, I'm in Hatboro. Don't use RAGO! Go with NFab. Trust me. I did both. There is no issue with the light output because of how bright the lights are. Mine are LP4's so the 6's will be even brighter. There really is no wiring to show. I used the LP6/LP9 heavy duty harness that Baja sells. It's totally plug and play.

    Thank you. I will go with NFab if they are better. I sent you private message to discuss this so we don’t fill this all up.

    Hey guys, The bracket I see on Nfabs site is described a bumper mount. Did you mod their products?
    thanks

    Hey Rob,
    Did not install mine yet. You need to pull the front bumper off. The NFab mount goes behind the bumper. I still did not order my bajadesigns lights.

    Hey, did you connect the 2 wiring harnesses from each light together or are you just running the button switch for each one separately? Been dying to do this, and I’m glad I found this post

    I was planning on doing the 6’s but now I’m looking at a different route. I have the NFab mount. But mine is a Pro so I might being going with the 20 inch bajadesigns led bar. It will fit behind my grille up about the safety sense. But maybe I will add the LP4’s down the road.
