Some sort of quick disconnect/connect windshield moulding so I don’t have to worry about installers doing it correctly for the rest of the FJs life.

Somebody needs to figure out if flick start can easily be added using OEM parts. My parent's Sequoia and brother's 4runner has it.

I don't know if it involves programming in the ECU or if a simple ignition switch/lock cylinder?
It's old tech at this point. The Honda Passport/Isuzu Rodeo used it back in the day. IIRC it's controlled by the ECM which also determines when to shut it off.

Same way push button start works in new cars, sends a signal to the ECM that you want the car started and shuts it off when certain parameters are met.

While I sometimes do miss the keyless entry/push button start in my Acura I'm not bothered by having to hold the key a couple of seconds longer.

I wish you could easily retrofit the rear view mirror with the distance lines in the rear camera image from 2012+ TTs to the 2011.

install a navigation head unit that comes with backup camera

I did this to my '08, last year, and not only got backup camera with adjustable lines, also Bluetooth and hands free (and better audio and SD card / iPod USB compatibility, and the most up to date navigation data). Feature-wise, like a brand new car now.

Re: I Wish This Part Existed

Some kind of shelf / basket hanging inside below the roof. Would be great for storage for light / soft items i.e. sleeping bag.

Re: I Wish This Part Existed

Well there's another item I didn't know about that may go on the FJ list.
