Cool new fj owner in dfw, tx

this may be long and boring: i'd been thinking about buying an fj cruiser for the past several months now while also understanding the "life style" change i would be making. my last three cars were supercharged fox body mustangs and a full 'stage 2' subaru wrx wagon. i was looking for something to take off-road but didn't necessarily want a jeep so after some searching around i traded in the wrx on a low mile 2007 "maroonish" (black cherry purple?) colored fj cruiser from a local dealership.

this fj already has an arb front bumper, mild body lift, and a roof rack. it also has 'fj crawler' emblems on the body and dash so i'm guessing it was some type of dealer option package back in 2007. i'm not having a lot of luck googling more information about these specific types of options. probably my googling skills are failing me lately due to old age.

anyway, so far i'm having a blast like i had hoped i would, instead of living the "boy racer" lifestyle, my mid-life crisis (4th now) has taken me in a new direction.. off the pavement so to speak.

thanks for reading this far, i'll resume lurking now.

Re: new fj owner in dfw, tx

santo, welcome and sounds like your enjoying it so far.

The "crawler" emblems aren't a Toyota option, just something that a dealer installed options.
