HISTORY
After viewing a bunch of threads, I have to give props to Shadow Warrior. I really like the layout of his build. Which is why this thread might seem a lot like his. It all started in July of 06. I went to a dealership and ordered a Black Diamond with convenience package 1 and 2. I also had them put the TRD rock rails and OEM roof rack on. After a couple of weeks I decided to install the passenger arm rest. First mod on the vehicle. Luckily she's came a long way since then.

Thanks... hopefully when I get the money I'll be able to get that LineX done. Then I wont have to worry about the North West pin striping we all encounter when off-roading. :)

Best (most appropriate) name yet for an FJ :lol:
Yeah... I thought it was quite clever myself. Everyone else seems to go with functional names. I thought I'd keep it real and give it what it deserves. I'm not complaining by any-means. I love the FJ's and wouldn't want to spend gas on anything else! :rocker:

Re: The H.O.G.G. (Actions Build)

Hey Action does this iPhone mount giggle the phone when you drive? Also is it screwed in and can you tilt to watch movies? Im really considering this for my iPhone.
The mount is screwed into the dash, it does not giggle, and it does rotate enough for others to see the screen. Probably the most used accessory I've added to the FJ. I love it and it works great. I use to place the phone in the forward cup holder. But found I would occasionally lose service. Since relocating the mount to the dash I haven't had a problem. P.S. Don't get caught watching a movie on it while driving... I'm sure you know thats against the law.

Thanks a lot... I think you set the standard in expedition ready FJ! :rocker:

nice looking rig but i was wondering about the expedition one bumper, which one did you choose since im looking for one for my fj
I purchased the trail series bumper from expedition one. I love it... I haven't noticed any front end sag, although I am not currently running a winch.
