    Does anyone know how to do this? I can change the icons inside system prefs but not the actual icon itself.

    I tried to right click/get info from the apps folder and then drag the new icon over the current one. I tried this same icon on a couple other apps and it worked so the icon is working.

    Try this:

    Right-click the System Preferences application and select "Show Package Contents", in Contents/Resources there's a PrefApp.icns that you can replace with your own .icns file.
