Obligatory new arrival pics

Here she is, fresh from the two hour drive up I-5 from Roseville:











The dealer & I had discussed this vehicle prior to my arrival (the night before) and it supposed to have CQ UR GY CF. When I got down there, we "discovered" they had stealth bolted these step rails on in the meantime (and as such the price had gone up of course). I asked they be removed to satisfy the original price and they weren't too keen on that idea. So I very politely turned down the offer and was literally half way back out to my car when they stopped me and agreed to lave them on at no charge So needless to say I'm quite pleased with the outcome - 500 over invoice! And I think the step rails actually look kinda cool, I think I'll keep them after all

Re: Obligatory new arrival pics

Nice pics! You are going to love the FJ. With a squirrelly dealer like that, I would have removed the advertising plates as soon as the deal was closed and I before I drove off the lot.

I would have removed the step rails.

All it takes is a dude with a wrench to get off of his ass.

Nice buy! Where you live at?

I invite you to take it offroad someday...TTORA does lotsa wheeling in the Sierra.

I really wanna see what these 'step bars' do when they encounter a rock or two....I am curious about how thick and burly these 'step bars' are. How many licks will it take??? Reminds me of the Tootsie roll commercial...Lets get to the center of those 'step bars'...

Welcome! I want those Predator rails so bad. They kick ass compared to the running boards.

They're not sliders, instead they'll just get hung up on rocks--or break/bend into the body of the truck.

Exactly. Ebay those things to a poser somewhere and put that money towards some aftermarket rock rails.
