Hi
I'm Irish living in the Middle East. I'm due to get my new FJ next week. Is a base model, Gulf spec. So its not got the chrome accessory pack, body styling stuff, Bluetooth, reversing camera, side reversing sensors or locking diff.

It is however a 4x4, grey with white roof - which my younger brother thinks looks like a Converse runner.

I'll take it off road & camping, but will probably avoid hard core stuff like dune bashing...

Looking forward to getting your advice while I'm here. The dealer is gonna do tinted windows & rust proofing for me. The legal limit for tinting is 30% here, will this be enough? Do I need 25%? The fines are big apparently, although rarely enforced.

Howdy, and congrats!

Tinting has always been a personal preference for me--and has changed with the type of vehicle I drive and stage of life. I've just stayed stock for now.

Thanks YoseFJ, I'll probably stay with the legal tint

Welcome! The wait feels longer thinking about the FJ. Try not think about it until it arrives next week. :bigthumb:

Its getting close. I'll have the FJ in a few days. My upgrades will happen over time. I'm not planning to go mad off road, but as I said, I'll be taking it into the desert camping and to the beach with some fun but not OTT dune bashing...

My initial intention is to add a light bar onto the roof, speed stripes to the bonnet & knobbly tires.

What order should I work in? I believe that these three things will give the car a certain look, but it will look odd if not done together... Will the car need a lift to accept the bigger tyres? will all this effect road handling?

Later on I will come up with a further list of enhancements that is a bit more focused, but I want to live with the FJ for a while first.
