Bought a 2010 FJ Army Green. Finally after some research between JEEP and the FJ.

Hopefully to get a lot of fun out of it. Newbie in the real offroad, Although I have owned F-xxx 4x4 in the past and still own a F-350 4x4 Harley. It's just not the same.

Looking at some initial mods after reading this for a while.
Start off with Some type of lift/suspension (Still Deciding) and offRoad Tires.

then front/rear bumpers.
after then leave it to the imagination.

2010 Army Green 4x4 Upgrade Package 2

Phase i ( Of Planning Modes) (This will get somewhere to start with, the have to look at phase II.

Future Mods
Lift Kit
Front and Rear Bumbers.

Re: Turtle

Welcome! I was comparing the FJ to the JK as well...no complaints so far.

Enjoy your new ride.

Re: Turtle

Welcome! We have had our FJ for a couple of months and just starting to explore off road. It really works good off road in stock trim but we have not been on any steep rocky terrain, yet.

Re: Turtle

"When evil men advance against me to devour my
flesh, when my enemies and my foes attack me, they
will stumble and fall." ~ Psalm 27:2

"He has a leveling kit on his (all mods were from its
first owner including trail pin stripes). So one day I
decided to be nice to this kid and I asked him about
the level kit and he says "whats a leveling kit"...I just
walked away after that." ~ The B.O.W.
