Hi All. I own a 2013 FJ. Does anyone have any good recommendations where to get exterior lighting upgrades in the Chicago area? Thanks!!!!

Re: newbie lighting questions

Hey there...welcome to the forums from DC! Are you talking headlights/brake lights-type lighting, or accessory lighting like light bars? Like the others said, we have a subgroup for lighting as well!

Re: newbie lighting questions

...also, the most obvious suggestion: do a search here, because there've been tons of great threads on the topic of lighting (changes to the original headlamps, adding auxiliary lamps to various places on the outside, and so on, with discussion about types, sources, and descriptions for how to do)

Once you've an idea what you want to change, that will help narrow down the rest of it: are you interested in something you can easily do yourself (after reading the threads you'll be able to tell), or have to farm out, and if so, to what kind of a shop.

Then, finally, asking around for recommended shops, for those kind of changes, around Chicago.
