"Do it yourself" front bumper wing eliminators http://www.fjcruiserforums.com/forums/interior-exterior-visual-tech/54046-eliminating-your-bumper-wings-20-bucks.html

Background to getting the FJ: MORE PICS ADDED below
I had convertables all my life but when the FJ's came out I rethought my ideas of a car. The problem was that the Solstice (pic 1) came out at the same time and I kept with the fun car and stuck with the convertable. 6 months ago my wife and I had a baby girl (pic 2) and I fought off the idea of switching cars, the convertable just wasnt cutting it. Trying to put a baby, a dog and a stroller in the convertable started to look like the beverly hill billies in San Diego.

Purpose:
I was looking for a vehicle I could take my family out on day hikes to look at flowers, go hiking and see the more natural side of life, especially when my daughter gets to be 3-4.

Theme:
I was looking for a clean looking cruiser for the roads with the 4x4 ability to survive in the wild.

Standard Outside Mods:
Lucrum winch mount
Warn 8000 with controls under the front bumper.
Black out - Bezel, mirrors, Bumper, Tundra door handle switch
Removed Emblems
Trail gear Rock rails
Coming soon:CB trail radio
Rock guards on front headlights
Piaa replacement bulbs

Unique mods
Anti-wing front bumper http://www.fjcruiserforums.com/forums/interior-exterior-visual-tech/54046-eliminating-your-bumper-wing-20-bucks.html
Harley-Davidson Emblem
Vehicle Gard Window protection - They send you a packet (see pic) which is applied like Window tint to help prevent petty thieves (see below, coming with stereo install)
YouTube - ShatterGARD As Seen On The Rachael Ray Show
Silver metal HD emblem on seat headrests

Wish list:
2.5" spacers up front (sitting in my garage waiting for me)
Front Fog lights (sitting in my garage)
Smoked LED front and rear lights (still debating)
Black rims and upgraded tires.
Aux battery
Finding a place to put a hi-jack when you don't have a roof rack (done)
Aux gas tank
Sunroof
Mechanizm to open my back window a certain amount to keep my dog from jumping out

Trail team ride in Big Bear (2 pics)
Front bumper with rock guards (need to put electrical tape around my winch wires to blacken them out)

I'll try and get some daylight shots up.

Shatterguards a BAD idea on a vehicle. If your trapped in your FJ, you or your rescuers cant break the glass to get you out. A stereo and window can be replaced. A life cant.
