NatlPrxCruiser Build

New to this forum stuff, probably going to be repeating a lot of mods I see on the forum here.
I will start it out with how it was when I bought it less than 2 weeks ago.
2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser Silver with 81900 miles
Existing Mods:
BFG All Terrain 285/70/17 on stock FJ rims
Donahue Racing (Icon) Suspension 2-3" adj. Lift Front Coil Overs & Rear Shocks
TRD Cat Back Exhaust
TRD Cold Air Intake
Warrior Products Platform Rack
Toyota Rock Sliders

I think I am starting off with a pretty nice rig.
Plan to use this to see the National Parks from coast to coast and will post updates as I take the trips and do different mods.

Re: NatlPrxCruiser Build

Update First Mods Complete
One of my mirror lights was out, so I ordered some IJDMToy LED Bright White Mirror Lights
Like those, So I also updated my headlights to the Alla 6000K H4 Bright White LED as well
Total investment. $48.00 on amazon for both sets.

Re: NatlPrxCruiser Build

Up next before any road trips. Starting the drivetrain with all fresh fluids
Full service, lube, oil, fluid at Toyota SM. OUCH $600. Piece of mind = Priceless.
Front, Center and Rear differential flush and refill.
Transmission flush and refill
Full Synthetic oil change.

It will be a little while before my next mods, got to wait for the parts come in.
Will throw up some of my interior mods soon, planning out my bug out box, patch game, etc.

Re: NatlPrxCruiser Build

Today I added the few patches I have in my collection so far. Been to a couple of parks so I have those up on my headliner. Will plan some trips back to these as well in the FJ.

Did you install the overhead map light? If not, that's an additional mod that did not come on the FJ from factory for an '07

Congrats on the great pickup

Yeah, it is aftermarket. Sunglasses and map light
Previous owner put that in. It is nice to have.

Thanks, these FJ's are a blast. Having fun.
