2014 FJ Cruiser Overland Build (slow build)

I am starting a thread so you can follow the evolution of my build up. I bought this brand new with less than a mile on it. It has the TT suspension, CRAWL mode, and rear-locking differential. It has A-TRAC and other than that. It has no exterior or interior accessories. It is going to take a while for this build up but I can't wait to see how it changes. Follow along!

Re: 2014 FJ "MOOSE" Overland Buildup

Found a roof rack and predator steps for $175 total in Austin! I eventually traded the predators steps straight up for OEM Rock rails! Couldn't pass it up! Then added plasti-dip (adds at least 10HP right?) to front and rear wings. More to come!

Re: 2014 FJ "MOOSE" Overland Buildup

Good job!! How well does the plasti-dip hold up on the bumper corners?

2014 FJ "MOOSE" Overland Buildup

Looks good.. I have a good top for making the bumper wings come out smooth when plastidipped. Don't forget that they are wet and put the can on it.... Haha I did that.

The plasti dip is holding up well. I've only hand washed it at this point. Did you mean, don't set the can on it?
