Congrats on your new FJ! Welcome from Texas! It looks like someone already swapped out the mirrors, bumper wings, and front valance. A lot of folks change the door handles and grille to the black version as well. It comes down to personal preference.

Welcome from Oregon :)

Looking good! Miles? What other mods were done by the previous owner(s)? What type of off road driving do you plan on doing? I love back roads and scenery, driving slow. Not much into rocks though ;) (big rocks for looking at and taking pictures).

Thanks! 100k miles. Not many mods done just blacked out some of the cosmetic pieces. Just bought a muffler want her to be a bit louder. Just basic light off roading nothing crazy. Need it to last for a long time.

Things I got the most out of early. 1.5" lift (went to 3" a couple years later) and better tires for gravel and crushed rock roads. A little larger tires help with the ground clearance too. Lift might require upper control arms (UCA). I put side steps like yours to help the better half get in. Probably the first thing I did.

I wish I had done the 3" lift the first time :) . Just remember, opinions are like a$$holes, everybody has one. Read a lot and ask questions, good people and info in here.
