General Information

FJ Cruiser
Trail Teams
I bought this `08 TT used. I paid book for it as the Subaru dealer did not know the difference between "C Package" and "Trail Teams Edition". Previous owner de-badged the back door. Effin Jerk!

It had over $7000 of extras on it when I bought it. It is a little rough as it has been driven in Northern Alberta on rough roads and I don't think it was washed all that often, but there is lots of life in her yet. I plan to clean it up and personalize it.

[B]Damage History:[/B]
I ran over a 10" log that was sitting at the edge of the grassy trail. The log was hidden in the grass and I never saw it until I ran over it. I was not going very fast but the impact broke my front drivers side shock as you can see in the photos below. I replaced it with a non Toyota Bilstein unit.

I went out with Vegas Nick and the Vegas crew while visiting Nevada and jumped a dune a little to aggressively and broke the other front shock, the poor camber also fried the front wheel bearing on the passenger side.

I have also replaced the front drivers side wheel bearing after getting stuck in a big mud hole, normal wear and tear, but the leaking seals probably helped the bearing along.
