OK so this month I'm in
Here goes...

Mine is 2008 black diamond AT (bought at 2014)
My first and only 4x4 car, don't plan on changing 😁
got it stock with E-locker and A-trac.

I love it cause it takes me to places I wouldn't reach otherwise and it just takes all you throw at her, with grace I must add.

Been climbing volcanos, plowing in snow, driving through mud, speeding through dunes or just driving to the beach... And each and every time it just feel great to get in, turn the key and drive. I love how it stays comfy and handles well no matter what I do to her or what I add or change.

But what I love the most is that my daughter (3.5y) simply loves to go inside, she asks to take my car to wherever we go and she always ask for "jumping jumping" (her way to say off road 🥰)

List of mods (not all for sure but the main ones) :
BFG 305/16/70 KO2's
TRD rims
BMC
DIFF drop
Smittybilt M1 Front and rear bumper
XRC 9500 winch
Icon stage 2 suspension with tubolars
Off Road Garage Snorkel
Skids : Ricochet / Icon / RCI
Toytec rear arms and panhard
MBRP 2.5 cat back exhaust
Rigid Industries lights

And lots of other fun stuff inside and out...

Hope you like it... I know I do 😅

2008 Option 2 Pkg.
200k Club

Replaced wheels with ‘21 4Runner Special Trail Edition
New seat covers
LED mirror and reverse bulbs
My very own Gorilla Mats..search my posting
TRD badging and sticker from previous owner…thinking about removing.

Favorite memory is watching my daughter learn to drive high up and checking that blind spot.

Best ride, home from the Appalachian Mt. on day 1 this year after my first Tacoma was in 1992 and 4Runner in 1998. This is my throwback classic!

This is my Brick 2008 FJ Cruiser.
I purchased this car a little over 4 years ago. It was my first car, and when I bought it, it was bone stock and didn't even have a roof rack. I'm now sitting at 198k miles and am hoping to join the 200k club soon. Since buying it, I've done a lot, so I'll list them below.

Roof rack off wrecked FJ
LED Light Bar
LED headlights and mirror lights
Eibach lift kit
NFAB front bumper
Method Race Wheels (MW305)
Goodyear Wrangler Authorities (still 32")
Aftermarket head unit
Aftermarket shifter and 4wd shifter
Front sway bar delete
Magnaflow Exhaust
Rear Ladder

Hey Everyone,

The Names Duncan, This is my first post on the forum. I own a 2011 FJ Cruiser Manual Transmission in Cavalry blue with a rear locker and A-Trac. I purchased this FJ back in August of this year.

Living in Oregon it's in my blood to fish. I bought this truck to drive deep into the mountains of the PNW and truck camp while fishing out of my Hobie outback. So far my favorite memories have been driving to Crater Lake with my brother 1 Week after purchasing the truck to go on a family road rip. Driving through the wildfire smoke in my dead nuts reliable tank felt pretty satisfying.Taking it up the OHV trails near Diamond Lake was even more satisfying. Just yesterday I was over landing near Mt Hood to get as close to as close to Olallie butte as possible after the wildfires raged through. I can't wait for the memories that will follow.

Hello,

My beast (2008 FJ manual) has been to Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey, and Greece with me thus far. She has finally made it back to the States as of a month ago, but will be heading off to parts unknown next summer. Purchased her in 2012 in Kazakhstan from a guy who had her there since 2010. I knew nothing about off-road rigs (and still don't) but needed something to get around in. What a blast she's been all these years. Put her through a lot of work between Chechnya and Georgia border, so much so that I had to bring her in to a shop here in the States today to get a full shakedown after I failed to realize you actually have to slow down when off-roading and try not to hit every single obstacle in the road.

Spent less than $1000 on her in ten years so when they told me today I need new lift kit, tires, and rack and pinion totaling $6300, I for a second (and only a second) thought of selling her. Nope! She's got only 66,000 miles on her so...she'll be getting some needed minor surgery next week.

Currently running with 2.5 inch lift, Walker Evans coil over set up, and a bunch of other stuff that I still don't know how to use.
