    I like the Prinsu racks, but I don't love them.
    I feel like I'm going to have to heavily modify them. The first modification got finished today. I extended the lightbar cutout to allow for a 50" bar.

    I promise to stop adding Lightbars to the front of my truck.

    Also, I added AVS Low profile vent visors. I really like them so far.

    I like that rack. How does it attach? The cab portion that is.

    You pull up the rubber, in the rain gutter, and drill holes in the sheet metal. Then you install nutserts/rivnuts.
    (*I've heard them called both *)
    I used black silicone at every step of the way to seal up the holes and I have had ZERO water get through. Once the rack is on, you put silicone in the gutter and pop the rubber back in. (you have to cut it to fit)
    The rack comes with all necessary hardware but not the silicone.

    On the headlights alone, would you say they're as bright as the factory that you replaced them for?

    That's a good question.
    I can't really answer it without acknowledging that I use LED Bulbs, and the bulbs I chose create a very specific light pattern with a very clear cut off line.

    I would say they are, at least, as bright but the light is also whiter (of course) and it's more consistently spread.

    I do not feel that the light travels further than stock. This is due to the cheap ass, ****tarded Chinese projector.

    Despite their underwhelming output, I never feel like I'm having trouble seeing at night. They always seem bright enough. Just not extra bright.

    Thanks for info, I'm in the researching process now, but aside from esthetics I want at least illumination improvement. I'd also like to add a head light that would signal on side marker when turning.

    Yeah, I like that side marker signal ideal.
    I'm probably going to switch to the VLED V6 Triton switchback bulbs for my turn signals.
    I think they will offer a small amount of additional light.

    I'm torn, during my research I really like 2019 tdr pro headlights, just got to purchase them and appropriate wire connectors.

    But realistically the cost would be right at $800. Which makes yours look really good...
