Hey Peeps!I recently just got my FJ and was wondering what to start with modification wise? (light bars, roof racks, fog light bumpers) Any advice when first owning these things?

Any pics?
Mods are endless.

Do a baseline maintenance first

Drive it, see what shortfall the FJ has for your Particular needs, and address those first.

Or if you just want to follow the crowd, and do all the mods to actually “personalize” your FJ, yet when you go to a meet, you see all of you have the exact same trucks then do this:

lift it
Snorkel it
Put wheels/tires on it
Front and rear bumpers aftermarket
Black out all parts
Winch
Lightbar
Roof rack
RTT
Rotopax
Trailer hitch

the meet atStarbucks for the group pics:)

Welcome!
How many miles you have on it now?
I can definitely tell you what is likely to break or go out and when.
Mine has 337K on her...
Haha she’s got 150k on her I got a deal! So far I’ve changed out engine oil and trans oil, Rear and front diff, as well as transfer case. Gotta do spark plugs and coolant soon!

Hello All, I don’t mean to jack anyone post but I have just joined the few and the proud owner of a 2012 FJ. So far I’m loving it but I do have a few suspension questions. I’m peacing together a lift kit. Bilstine 5100, dif drop, goodridge ss lines and some Toyo’s open country at ii (285/70/17). Do I need a sway bar drop? Will it rub on anything. I’m I missing anything major? BYW Walmart has a sale for the toyo open country at ii 285 70 17 for 170ish. Good time to buy if anyone looking to get new tires.
