    Not sure on the fuel light. As for the other questions, I belive it would require replaceing the sheet metal too. Im not sure though.

    The fenders and hood look the same on 96 and 97 tacomas so how can i find out if the head lights, grill and bumper can be changed?

    you can convert...BUT, you need new hood,bumper,fenders,grille,all lights and a new core suppport(for the style you want)

    unless you just want to put a 4runner bumper on, then I dont think you need to change a whole lot..maybe the grille and bumper.

    You should really re-think that. The hood is completely different,and the fenders are to. I know you cant use 95-00 corner markers on an 01-04.
