Every wanted to BS with someone about an upgrade to your FJ and only have your wife around. God knows I love her but the FJ is the "other woman" in her mind. Well we're at the beach and a friend loaned me a broadband internet card. Too much time and too much credit so I really stepped in it.
Wanted to lose the stock look of the FJ and make it my own, mine and the banks anyway.
Been lurking on the forums since I bought her in August 2007 and have found the information invalueable.

Suspension upgrade: went back and forth between OME and an adjustable set-up. A smart fella would have went with the OME ,no complaints that I've seen cheap to replace components.
Fox adjustables some complaints talk of leaks etc. But overall good reviews.

I ordered the Fox system from all pro.
The adjustability was just too sexy to resist.
Also ordered the all pro bumper with the large light hoop.
no winch yet (thinking of getting a hydralic one for some reason )
the ability to adjust front ride height was another strong reason for the Fox choice.

Tire and wheels: not going big here 285 70 17 BFG MT km2. would have liked to go big but lets face it I'll be on the asphault alot.
wheels american racing series 137 17x8 black w/ polished phoney beadlock.
would have went all black but I have a black Cherry and It needs a touch of bling.

I'll get her done and join the NWFJCC and get her dirty.

Trail Armor and lights next up

Think I'll nickname her the "Show Pony" lol

Welcome to the madness. Sounds like you have been bitten by the mod bug. Mine is the other women to so to speak. Just try to balance out your time between wifey and the rig, with a bit more on the rig side.:rocker:

You'll be happy with the tires...285's in the KM2 look way bigger than most 285's to my eye. If I could pony up the bucks, I would probably go with the Fox setup too...it definitely pegs the 'sexy' meter. :) Good luck and bring on the pics!

maybe you ought to call her "SUGAR MOMMA" or "EYE CANDY" cuz your wife is going to think you are buying implants for a girlfriend with all that cash and the smile you come home with on your face....LOL

Welcome, and I am sorry, more than one FJ has caused the MOD bug to bite and wives hate it...


BTW don't forget to do the Breather Mods, as in our neck of the woods we do get into lots of water.. See you on the trails...

:cheers:

Get those mods done then take the wife up somewhere with a great view. On a clear day when you can see the snow mtns like Hood, St Hellens, Adams and Ranier. Awe her with a little grandeur. Then tell her thats what the FJ is for, to share with her, this wonderful world. Works for me.
Welcome to our clan.:wave:

Thanks for the great welcome. I'll get some pics together as I do the installs.
Going to read up on the breather mods, thanks for the heads up.
