Bert's New Build

Picked up a 2007 Black FJ today. No major mods are allowed until I get the FJ40 on the road, but I will be doing all the "cheap" mods very soon.

Thanks, although I didn't really have any complaints with the truck, it just wasn't the same. I am glad to be back!

Re: Bert's New Build

It has been a while since I made any major modifications to the FJC. I promised myself that I would finish the FJ40 first. Well, I did finish it and ended up selling it, so I am now starting on the FJC.

Minor Mods:
Removed:
-OEM Roof Rack
Added:
-Bandi CB Antenna Mount (CB coax cable routed to center console)
-Tuffy Center Console
-Black Door Handles
-Black Mirrors (to replace oem silver ones broken while wheeling)
-Garmin Nuvi GPS (mounted above rearview mirror, see image below)
