=new car


I purchased my Trail Teams FJ Cruiser in March of 2009 from Bart (shfd739).
I got the rig looking like this:




I didn’t do much of anything with the car for several months. I just added mud and some custom pin stripping.:bigthumb:

I then decided to go to the University of Montana, here is where I began to itch for a little more. So I purchased an ARB front bumper w/ fog kit. Followed by a pair of IPF 900xs, Warn 9.5xp and a BudBuilt ARB filler plate.



My next mod was an ARB Full Length Alloy Roof Rack


I added some IPF Reverse Lights


Then two sets of IPF 868 Driving lights


The most recent mod is an Expedition One Rear Bumper w/ Tire Swing-out and Lights


Here how everything has been wired.





I will leave you for now with some action shots.

Nice rig! Did you play lacrosse at milton? and if so, do you know Ben Jackson (and probably knew his older brother as your screen name seems to reference.)

I knew Parker, I don't really know Ben. I'm actually wearing a T-Shirt w/ Parker D. Jackson #22 right now. My Eagle Project was a Memorial Boulder Garden over at Milton. I wish I could show you this picture I have of the two of us from a billion years ago. :lol: Good times.

Dude its great to see the truck is still being used as intended. Love the Expedition One rear bumper and swing. If I still had it that was gonna be my choice for a rear bumper.

Nice job with the ARB parts as well. I still recognize some of my stickers.

Keep on wheeling it. Oh yeah if you ever want to sell it, call me. I miss that truck dearly.

Thank you for the complements Bart. Hows the 80 treating you?
