Been lurking in this forum for about two years. Finally had the funds to take the plunge. Picked her up about a week ago. Took her for her maiden voyage off road Sunday. What a kick.

Already put in PIAA Extreme Whites. Thinking of swapping out the stock sliders for some Trail Gear sliders. I like the look of the stock sliders, but they can't be used as a step for reaching the roof. Can anyone who has the Trail Gear sliders tell me how well they prevent against door dings (in parking lots)?

Next decision is whether to attach Yakima bars to the stock rack, or go for the Gobi Stealth. Gobi looks awesome, but it does have some drawbacks -cost, heavy, steel is prone to rust, and makes washing/waxing the roof a bugger.

Congrats,,
Putting a Yakima on top of the stock rack is kind of sketchy because the cross beams are flimsy and the bikes rock and it is a tight fit to get two bikes up there. I scored a hitch mount that is smoking for $125. Get the Gobi.
Don't ever stop modding!!!

FJ-Cruise my brotha!!

I'm thinking about using aluminum blocks and longer bolts on mine.
