Not street legal, but moving toward street legal-ish.

LED Trailer light buckets




Wired for markers/brakes. Not wired yet for blinkers.
Thinking of using a bike/quad handlebar switch for hi/lo, blinker, horn.

Yes. In Colorado.
Headlights (turn signals are the amber markers from a chevy dually fender, and are removed for comp)


Rear tail lights are oval rubber set, dual filiament, and turns are the red markers from the dually.


I will try to get better pics when I pull it from storage.

Mine will be up here in South Dakota. The headlights are motorcycle units and tail light (4" round LED's) will go in the back blue panel.

They are 6" KC daylighters. They only have "low beams" , but it was enough to get it signed off.

I don't have any pics but stock Toyota headlights fit in the old school 6x9 off road light housings. Depending on the depth of the housing (there was some variation between manufacturers) you can cut a hole in the back for the plug or fold the pins over and use spade connectors.

Mine is registered as a 2009 rebuilkt toyota, and insured as a 09 formula toyota. Colorado required a title for the frame, and a bill of sale (invoice) for the chassis, and to meet the basic vehicle safety requirements, and they issued a vin number. It was actually rather simple. Just get the correct paperwork, and do your research on what requirements are needed in your state.

Looks like a cut down Early Bronco hood. In The Pink runs something like it also.
