    So I have a question for the all knowing gurus out there. I've seen these fang like this on Amazon and R4T (and a few other sites):

    https://www.amazon.com/Dreamseek-4R...00&sprefix=toyota+4runner+fang,aps,101&sr=8-2

    And I guess my question is this: is the bumper hard to remove?

    I've seen a couple vids on Youtube demonstrating putting these on. Guess my biggest fear is damaging the bumper. I know you remove a series of screws and it SHOULD come off relatively easy. But what happens on video vs. reality is two different things.

    TIA!

    I've pulled my bumper probably 10 times. Watch youtube thrice, go slow, you'll be fine. If you feel resistance you missed a screw or bolt.

    Cosmetic.
    IMHO there are two kinds of modification of original vehicle: cosmetic and useful.

    Fang lights? As they point up, I’d say they’d more properly be called tusk lights.

    Just remember that the lights you're asking about have to be tapped (hacked) into your factory wiring harness in several places in order to get them to work. This will compromise that harness. An additional issue will very likely be the quality of the parts. I wouldn't expect the lights to last for long at all. Finally, you'll likely have to remove your front bumper cover to properly install them. It's not a terrible job and there's plenty of videos on YouTube on how to do it, but if you mess up, there's more than a few bucks involved in fixing it properly. Think about it.

    I'm a manufacturing engineer by trade. I can be pretty dangerous with electrical engineering. This is just FUDD.

    I’ll bite. How are you using FUDD? I know it as a person who supports the second amendment only insofar as it pertains to hunting weapons (Elmer Fudd).
