One of our clients decided to drop by Perfectionist Auto Sound & Security after buying himself a new truck. He wanted to upgrade the Toyota Tundra lighting and add a remote starter to his brand-new truck. We talked with him about where he was going to be using the truck and about how much extra light he wanted. With a plan in place, we set to work on helping this customer turn night into day.
High-Power Lighting Grille
The customer supplied a replacement front grille that features integrated light mounts. We fitted a Vision X XPi-9M 19” light bar into the opening in the center of the grille. To fill the mounting locations on either side of the main light, we choose a Vision X XIL-OP110KIT that includes a pair of 10-Watt 3.0” Square Optimus Single lights.
Long-Distance Viewing With Huge Light Bar
To further enhance long-distance viewing when off-road, we installed a Vision X XPI-27M 51” light bar above the windshield. This monster LED light bar features a whopping 14,256 lumens of light output. The design features both a spot and flood pattern to best illuminate the road straight ahead while lighting up the shoulders, to allow the driver to see any animals that may be thinking of dashing out to make a sudden crossing.
Additional Lighting Completes The Toyota Tundra Lighting Package
We also retrofitted the factory lighting locations with HID replacement kits in the high and low beams, as well as in the fog lights in the massive front bumper. We also installed a set of 2” square Solstice series lights from Vision X in the rear bumper.
While we had the truck in the shop, we installed a new custom hood for the customer. The customer brought us the hood after having it painted to match the Toyota Super White factory paint. We took care to make sure the hood was aligned as perfectly as possible to maintain Toyota’s reputation for quality.
Peace Of Mind
To help our customer protect his investment, we outfitted the Tundra with a Compustar Pro T11 security system. The Pro T11 includes an amazing five-button remote control that offers up to 3 miles of range. The LCD screen on the remote makes it easy to know if the vehicle is locked at just a glance. Should the alarm go off, the owner can see what sensor or input was triggered. The T11 remote also features an IPX7 waterproof rating. You can drop it in a snow bank, a pool or a lake. All you need to do is fish it out and wipe it off, and it will be as good as new.
The customer decided to add the Drone Mobile cellular interface. Now he can lock and unlock his vehicle, or be alerted if the alarm goes off, via the Drone App on his cellphone.
Final Tuning Extracts Maximum Performance
As with any system we install at Perfectionist Auto Sound & Security, we ensure that everything we do is configured for maximum reliability, performance and ease of use. We aligned all the lights against our shop wall to ensure even output. We carefully calibrated the alarm shock sensor for maximum sensitivity without the risk of false alarms.
Finally, after we tested everything, it was time to return the truck to the owner. He was blown away by just how much output the Vision X lights offered, and loved knowing his pride and joy was safe.
