This is a complete build of my 2007 Ti FJ start to finish. I can say that it is done due to the fact that it's official time of death was 8 a.m. yesterday morning when I got the call from the insurance adjuster stating that it is a total loss.

Out the Door:
Auto 4x4
Locker
FJammer (no sub)
Roof rack

Well i can't find any pics from when it was 100% stock, but we all know what stock looks like.

1st Mod run:
Removed rear mud flaps
Removed running boards
Added Cobra 75 wx
Bandi mount
4' antenna
IPF 968's on stock bumper

For the life of me I can't find any pics in this stage either. I did loose a hard drive a few years ago and with it a lot of the early pics.

2nd Mod run:
All Pro Bumpers front and rear
All Pro Sliders
Small light hoop to hold the IPF's

New Glass ($385 installed)
New 4' fiberglass whip
Added a spring to bottom of antenna so next time the antenna will be OK

Bummer. :mecry:

Your rear flex looks funny with those 285s. Nice FJ though. Getting another??

The 285's stuffed enough to rub in the rear. I am thinking of another FJ or maybe a Rubicon Unlimited.

Oh no! I'm sorry to hear of the accident! I hope you're OK and you get a new vehicle soon. I missed the other thread completely. Gah, that looked bad. Best wishes to you Phil.

Sorry to hear about your accident... but think of how bad it could have been if you were in a Rubi that you are now considering...

Now do the smart thing and get another FJ :)

Thanks Tony, I am looking into another FJ right now. I am seeking my own financing since it's a heavily modded 07.

The Rubi is sexy on paper however, on the test drive with the stock tires and what not it accelerated like my FJ pulling our camping trailer.

So about a year and a half ago I picked up a used 2007 FJ to replace my Ti.

Here I am at KOH 2010 on the right:

Some AAT love:









One of a few mods I did after buying the thing:





Cougar buttes with the usual suspects:

Going up the waterfall I got into the only rock on the entire trail that I could. The window wouldn't roll down the door skin was pushed in so far. I pulled the door panel kicked it out and the door opens and closes and window works so it's good. I have some much needed Mad Dog door armor now and it covers the damage pretty damn good.
