I believe this pic (instagram) is from the UAE. I'm curious if the red bar in the back has any real application. I have seen them on

Challengers but they go from strut tower to strut tower. I can't make out the anchor points but I do like the look. I also like the painted plastic painted parts. My engine bay is cleaner than new, so I love engine bay bling!!!

On that FJ it's bling - that is not a functional brace.
There's a lot of blinged vehicles here... they love red seats too. I'm willing to put money down that FJ has red seats.

I think that's just attached to sheet metal. It probably helps but not very strong. Unless you have a floppy firewall, you're fine skipping it. The correct way to tie it in similar to your challenger is the shock towers with a cross over bar. You can paint this part red too ;)

Any chance the red bar serves as an electrical conduit?

I was looking at the Ultra Racing front brace and is for non-US versions because the mounting holes are not there. You would have to drill and tap them yourself.

I was about to buy but, found this out after clicking on "Full Description on the listing.

Cusco Japan sells that along with stronger sway bars for front and rear.
Looks like the Cusco front brace is only good for 07' - 11' FJ's. Perhaps, after 2011 Toyota stopped making the mount holes? IDK

Here is where I got the model year compatibility:

they are using it here on 2015+ model FJ Cruisers here in the Philippines as the vehicle is still sold here.
