    Well this round of mods has no real purpose but cosmetics, but I figured I would post it up anyway, as this contains my FAVORITE mod to DATE!!!!!

    First off, you guys probably know that swapped out my color match parts (mirrors and handles) for black plastic ones. This was both cosmetic and functional as this plastic is less prone to chipping like paint. To keep with the theme, I got my hands on a base model grille surround and traded my color matched grille.

    In addition, to make it flow better, I finally broke down and did the “black headlight mod” as the chrome headlights didn’t look right with the front grille. I think the overall look came out good with my existing allpro bumper being black.

    I have transformed my truck from a TRD sport model to the coveted TRD EXPEDITION MODEL!!!!!!!!!!!

    I chose to do red because I think it works with the Red TRD in the center caps of the FJ wheels I have...THANKS SOCKMONKEY!
