This is gonna be a really vane question... I have a TT edition FJ and have just bought Demello mounts for a Hi-Lift.

Now what color Hi-Lift should I get for the FJ? the Cheaper all black one or the all cast red one?

I know it's a vane question... and in the end my FJ is just gonna get all nice and muddy with some trail scars... but just trying to decide.

Yep, thats a vane question alright...

Naw, im just kidding, Ive thought about the same thing. Its all personal preference. I have a 08 TT SE. Ill probably get the Hi-Lift 60" Xtreme. I think it only comes in black. I think it would go well with the black trim on the TT, but then again, red looks pretty slick too. Ive seen em both on TTSEs. I would be happy with either.

If you want the Hi-Lift to go more unnoticed to possible thieves then black would be the way to go. Mine is black with a red handle and I remove and put it in my garage every time after I come back from wheeling. It gives me one less thing to worry about when parking my FJ places.

Thanks for all the responses... yeah I think the black would make the color scheme to monotone... I guess I'll go with the 48" red Hi-Lift.

Then I am gonna have to hit a trail and use it so it doesn't stay a nice shiny red.

thanks

The Xtream is Gray, not black. :)

TRD accent color is red. So i would go with red.

And as Shadow mentioned, the Extreme is a charcoal grayish color.

I like the looks of the X-Treme one.
I sold my old red one to my neighbor and got the new one.

Pick up a WabFab adapter too if you do not have one.
Makes it easier to "cradle" the tubing of the sliderz.

just picked up the red one... And it draws too much attention to itself I think. Kinds visually imbalanced. Maybe cause the rest of the truck is stock. I saw a TT that had more mods and it and it looked good.

I'll prolly end up returning it and get the regular black one with red handle.
