Thanks! I’m really happy with it.
2011 just over 90k
Yeah a little bit has been done from previous owner
I personally like the blacked out look. I was thinking Id do the mirrors and handles to match next.
then some type of front bumper bar/lights set up
Still seeing what’s out there that I like and in budget

And then see what’s next 🤷🏼‍♂️

The problem with reading is that it leads to wanting and wanting leads to spreadsheets and spending money.....and more reading and more $$ and more reading.....so much fun! Welcome!

You forgot to mention the part where my wife says. “Do you really need that?” 😂

Spreadsheets are bad. Because then there is proof of how much spent and what is bought. As I tell my wife, I only bought the GOBI ladder for the FJ. Have spent no other money on it.

Less you know...the better. is the FJ mantra for the spouse :love::p:devilish:

I have the oppostie problem. My wife wants bumpers, and winches and lift. None of the things I want. I dont want my FJ to be heavy. I also don't need $20,000 in mods, when I am saving for a 300series LC with the TTV6.

I dont need a lift for my starbuks runs. She wanted a ladder for a year, and finally gave in. We were in MOAB ..and she kept telling me how we need a RTT and Front and rear bumpers like other FJ. We have 0 need for them. SIGH
