    my headlight assemblies are a little worse for the wear. I would like to have new ones to install after I've done the bedliner on the vehicle. Does anyone know where I can find them?

    '70 FJ-40

    Thanks, Chris

    Unless you just have to have oem stuff....you can try this:
    Old Chevy pickups and Blazers headlight buckets will fit OK. You'll need to get some new plastic treaded inserts for the adjustment screws. It's a bit trickey getting the inserts to fit in the bib. The inserts are for square holes and the bib has round holes. The best fitting inserts are GM, not aftermarket from NAPA
    I've have them on my 68 FJ40 and they work fine. Only cost $5 at junkyard and I also got 2 good headlight seal beams, 2 horns and a bunch of the under hood wiring.
