This is super helpful. Thank you so much!
You're welcome. The driving lights are wired to a 3 way switch. In the middle position, they're off. In the up position, they are on. In the down position, they come on with my brights. I live in a rural area and start my drive into work at 3:30 am. I use the driving lights as my brights to avoid deer.

How extensive was the modification? What did it entail?
I relocated and shortened the mounting arms the drilled and tapped new holes. I cut two pieces of steel and bent them with a hydraulic press to make the brackets to mount it to the bumper. The brackets come through the lower grille on either side of my radar unit, and the light bar sits on top of the brackets and are bolted from underneath. It sits high enough so that it doesn't interfere with my radar for the cruise control and forward collision alert.

Does the Eibach kit work on the AWD rear suspension? I wonder if it could be combined with a 1" space to get 2" lift, plus maybe an inch from the tires.

Been wanting to do this since I saw the Sema Rock Star Kona. Local dealer if offering free AWD ($2k) and $2k in incentives on a 2021 base model. Off the lot and after 13% tax, its around $24k Cdn. I'm considering getting a Kona for myself in addition to my wife's 2020!

Thank you so much.

I used brackets for a 2016 Tacoma and mounted the to the inside of my roof rails. I did run the wires down the a pillar with some 3M1s f adhesive tape. C

Here are some pics of how the wiring is ran. I also added some driving light up front.

That looks a lot cleaner than I was expecting. I was thinking on going in under the roof rail, popping the headliner and running down the inside of the a-pillar. Its too cold now to be flexing the inside plastics.

The Eibach kit worked great with my AWD.

So far, the 3M double sided tape has held up great. It's gone through 95 degree weather and it's currently 6 degrees. It's been through several car washes as well.
