    Wheels-

    I've been looking around and having a hard time finding the info I need. I currently have a 02 DC stock suspension silver in color. I'm looking to replace the stock wheels. Can anyone point me to specifics, I want the wheels to be black as I think that would look great. I like the look of the FJ wheels but do not know if they would fit. Any advice would be helpful.

    Black Grille and Surround-

    I can't locate this anywhere and I have crawled the web for days

    Brighter Headlights-

    Anyone have some to recommend

    Black Badges-

    I think I have this one figured out but would like any tips to those who have done it.

    Thanks for the help I really appreciate it, can't wait to start the mods!

    You can get an already primed(black) Grille surround off ebay. Thats where I am getting mine. And I have some Sylvania SilversStar Ultra Bulbs and I love them. They are kinda expensive but dang they are bright.

    Yes the FJ wheels will fit, good luck finding the black ones under a grand, the grey ones are 575$ for four, delivered off flea-bay. Get some DDM HIDs for the head lights, they are about 40$ and are real bright.

    getting there....
    gonna say this about the ebay grill..................i have one, and to be honest....it didnt fit worth a shit......had to make it fit. and the emblem didnt wanna go back in the front......none of the tabs lined up...so i had to epoxy it in. best be may be to paint the stock one.........its what i would have done had i known how the grill fitment was.

    i second that about the grille surround from ebay. I got mine off there, looks fine the grille it self fit back in fine, but the emblem did not go back on right. its just sitting on there with 2 tabs in, held up well in a fender bender.
