    Step bars, billet grill with custom TOYOTA, MB Quart RSI 216 components, Hifonics ZXi 4410, RAAMmat deadened doors/back wall/roof covered with ensolite , 24" Magnaflow muffler, hand polished stock exhaust tip, tinted, OEM TRD Bilstiens all around with 1/4" spacers up front to level it out. Sport wheels added.
    I like the grill. I'd put in one of them nice FJ TOYOTA emblems smack in the middle though. Just to break up all that black. Might have to order one of them grillcraft set ups myself.

    when you pop the hood instead of reaching through the grill like you used to you stick your hand under the hood itself and release that latch.
