Ordered my 2011 4x4 Quicksand FJ last week. It is expected at the dealership the week of 4/4.

I am very eager!

Long wait indeed!

That week (4/4) is the week of my birthday, so I have my fingers crossed for an awesome present!

This will be my daily driver, more of a suburban rig. Not many opportunities for off-roading in my area unfortunately. Been flipping through sites looking at some of the more appropriate modifications. Yikes!:lol:

Congrats! I got mine a month ago and my daily driver BMW has been nearly abandoned. Never imagined that would happen.

Why the long wait? Factory special order?

Thanks for the warm welcome!

It is.

The couple of trucks that were available to the dealership had things I really wasn't interested in. Carpeted floor mats, storage bags, nets. One truck had the CAT back exhaust. Felt like I would be paying for things I was going to be replacing or could buy aftermarket for a lot less cash.

I don't mind the wait when I realized I saved a pretty decent amount of money by doing so.

Congrats!

I'm surprised they couldn't find what you wanted in a dealer trade. I probably shouldn't have, but I asked the dealer to find me a Quicksand with factory roof rack and rock rails. The rails are ok, but I'd rather have one of the Baja Racks. I figured it would save me from explaining to my wife why UPS delivered another large, heavy box for the FJ. It's funny, though, after I lifted it at a friend's place and brought it home she never noticed the extra effort of climbing in, or at least didn't mention it. :)

Here are a couple pics I just took after letting the Arizona rain wash the FJ overnight. Just seems wrong to use a hose or carwash. :cheers:

Found out late yesterday afternoon that the truck I ordered has hit the port. Should have it in three weeks or so.

It must have shipped out just a day or so ahead of the tragic events that occurred a couple of weeks ago.

Looks good. What lift did you do? Did you up the tire size as well with the BFG AT/KOs? Liking this color a lot, especially in Southwest.
