New 4x2...

I have just recently gotten a 2007 FJ and i want to make it a little more off road worthy by lifting it and upgrading some engine parts and performance exhaust. I wont be doing anything too crazy off road so i dont need anything too crazy as far as the lift goes. ive seen alot about bilstein 5100's up front with 4x4 shocks and springs in the back. what do you guys think about that? also what about some other uprgades that you would recomend

Re: New 4x2...

I got my 4x2 a few years ago. I have a 3in Rough Country Suspension lift, 285 BFG AT's and XD Diesel Rims. I do fine on the trails. Sorry I'm not much help on the exhaust. I'm thinking about getting flowmasters though.

Re: New 4x2...

I just finished my 3'' lift, and think its the perfect height for the 4x2. I did OME and ToyTech. Good luck

Re: New 4x2...

If I were you I would focus more on suspension and armor. Engine mods are a dead-end for FJ's unless your running the Baja. It's got enough hp and torque to get you anywhere it's capable of getting to. Intakes and exhaust are a waste on FJ's.
