Hey guys i got a 07 Black Diamond Fj Cruiser in January!!! It was a 16th birthday gift (extremely lucky to get it). Havent done much to it yet except that i had Pirelli ATR's and Pirelli 16" rims. Im new to the whole modding thing but wanted to know what i should get on it first. Like ARB bumper, skid plates, moto metal rims, and rock sliders is what im hopeing to get. Any suggestions? Thanks, Ben

You both - teenagers - got FJs for your birthday presents? You BOTH suck! :lol: Do you have any ideas how many lawns I had to mow in 100+ degree summer heat to save enough money to buy my own car? And yeah, I did walk uphill in the snow both ways to and from school...

Good for you both! Enjoy!

Yes of course i realize how lucky i am and thats why I take great care of my car, but I do have to pay for gas which can get tight. So im not off the hook completely.

Congrats and welcome to the Forum! Hmm! lets see, the first mod would be a 6" lift followed by Rims and 35"s then sliders and belly armor!!! Sure wish I could have afforded a FJ at your age!! After 25yrs of two full time jobs I finally purchased mine!

Sorry a lift is out of the question because my dad says it ruins your gas mileage with like 35" tires...so im really looking at sliders, skid plates, and a good front bumper like road armor or ARB

And you don't expect the added weight a bumper, skid plates, and sliders won't bring you mileage down ;). Get a TRD CAI and then you'll love it. I have it and still lovin' it. And I know about gas, had to fill up $70 bucks today, luckly website business is booming :)
