My FJ Cruiser Job thread

So I started a job off-roading all over Utah recording "street view" style 360 video. I decided I will share some photos but I cannot talk too much about the project because of, well, that is just business. Anyways, we traversed over 40 miles of trails over the last two and half days. I will share photos of my journeys as much as I can. We have a completely stock 2013 FJ and I cannot believe the things it accomplished over the last few days. It does have Wrangler AT's (they're okay, a little soft) on it with no lift and I traversed terrain that I couldn't even imagine I made it through with ease. Anyways, enjoy the journey with me! Some of you may recognize these places.

Re: FJ Cruiser Job thread: Off-roading pics

I do have more experience than the baseline requirements (nearly completed masters in fisheries biology with a lot of field work experience) but I was very glad to land the job. I've only been out a couple days and go back out again next week. I will continue to post photos of the journey. Hope everyone subscribes to see some remote areas of Utah.

Thanks for subscribing! I'll try and update it once or twice a week. Sometimes I am out in the field for several days with no signal.
