History
Purchased used with 12k miles in late 2010, just broken in. Had all kind of plans for modifications, but personal debt and daily driving have kept the truck basically stock with better tires.

Might just be in the running for the most-general-knowledge/least-modified member award, lol.
2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser (Sandstorm)

Modifications

Drivetrain
Stock as stock can be. Still 18mpg combined driving. No complaints for what it is.
Interior
Needs cleaning.
Exterior
Sadly, pretty much no mods. I carry a hitch-mounted cargo carrier with LED lights almost 100% of the time. Has taken at least 5 soft rear-endings that would have torn up the stock plastic and the extra brake lights have saved me from at least one ticket.

Still wearing the laughable OEM running boards. Laughable until you see how shredded they are underneath from highway road debris over the last 5yrs. Cheapest rocker panel protection ever, lol. Maybe someday they'll get tossed in the dumpster in favor of some MetalTech Step Sliders, but living in flat South Texas means I'm not desperate for extra ground clearance.
Audio
Factory FJammer and my sparkling personality.

Got some Infinity Kappa coaxials in a box somewhere...
Suspension
Stock. Have new springs in hand, but need to purchase shocks still. Planning on OME884/Bilstein 5100 up front and Toytec 2.0/OME 60071 in the rear.
Wheel and Tire
Stock 17" alloys with BFG Rugged Terrain P265/70-17. Able to maintain stock MPG by choosing a light, non-LT tire and yet get a big improvement in traction over the OE fitment tire.
