Ditch Light Brackets give you the ability to run aftermarket LED light pods on the hood of your 3rd Gen 4Runner. They attach to the hood hinge bracket with no drilling necessary. In some cases, the wiper cowl needs to be trimmed for the best fitment. 

Each bracket provides a low profile, clean look to your truck. They are CAD designed, CNC cut, and made in the USA. Finished in a black powder coat, they can withstand wet weather conditions. The brackets are sold in pairs and do not interfere with the hood function.


  • Minimal Trimming Required in Some Cases
  • Bolts on Hood Hinge
  • Low Profile Fitment
  • Hold Standard LED Pods - Over sized lights may have vibration.
  • Powder Coated Black

Perfect if you have a snorkle

The ditch lights are perfectly angled and slightly lower than my pillar mounted pod lights. I wanted something that actually had the usable angle to light up the ditch without the mount interfering with my snorkel. These are our perfect solution.

Hey there Connor,
Glad you're loving it! Makes us so happy to hear!

Well made. Everything I've ordered from Rago has been high quality. Easy to install.

Well made & easy to install

Put these on my '98 4Runner SR5 and they fit like a glove. These things are ridiculously strong and durable considering they're only holding light-weight light pods. Black powder coating is definitely a plus. Install took less than 5 minutes using nothing but yourself and a ratchet or wrench. Happy with them overall and plan to use them forever.

Is it worth the waiting time??

I have to say I was very unhappy with the amount of time it took to receive my product. Mainly because before I even ordered I called and was told that there was 27 in stock and available. I immediately placed my order thinking I would have it within a week at the worst, It took a lot more time than that. I feel that they need to work on the delivery time if you say you have 27 in stock when a customer calls and that they're available then they should get it as soon as possible not 2, 3 or 4 weeks later. As for the probut it is worth it but not the wait. If I knew that what I know now I would have gone a different direction. That being said it cannot take anything away from the quality of their bracket only the the handling and delivery time.

These are everything you need for 3rd gen ditch light brackets. Other products require some cutting, and the universal stuff clamps right to your hood, damaging the paint.
These bolt right up to your hood brackets and took minutes to install. The ziptie holes were a nice touch, as well! My only dislike is the laser cut Rago logo in the driver's side bracket. I'm all about minimalism, but I can't fault a company for putting their name on something.
Thank you!
