For 2 years my poor friends and family had to listen to me yell, "FJFJFJFJFJFJFJFJ!!!!!!!!!!" every time a FJ passed on the road. Finally, December of 2008, I had my very own brand new FJ! I was THRILLED!

Unbeknownst to my husband, I had BIIIG plans for the FJ. :thinkerg: He thought I didn't need a 4X4 FJ but I eventually convinced him. When we brought the FJ home it had a upgrade package #2, convenience package.
After browsing this forum and seeing all these amazing built up FJs I started researching "mods". My goal was to build a FJ tank that would command respect on the Houston highways. After spotting a thread to go wheeling with the Houston folks, we decided to take the stock, scratchless FJ for the first time.

We quickly learned that Predator steps SUCK.

but we had a blast and made great new friends. :)

I was given a heads up on a great deal on ARB rock sliders. I snatched those up and had my first "mod"!!

(my new ARB sliders.... and my mom enjoying her first wheeling trip :lol:)

We had so much fun wheeling with the Houston crew that we decided to go to Summit. We purchased the Big Bill Combo ...

We returned and had to put any new mods on hold until our surprise mod came in...

So we added "baby car seat mod" to our list Jan of 2010... :clap:

After we welcomed our son I got the "I need a lift and bigger tires" itch. I sold my other car (my beloved Mercedes SLK) to use the money on my FJ. My husband was thrilled to get the Mercedes out of the garage and was thrilled to have some extra cash to use on the FJ. :D

Five-by-five (my hero :kiss:) found me a AMAZING deal of some Goodyear MTR 305/70/17 with rims!

Now I needed a way to get them on the FJ. I knew a chop was necessary but what kind of suspension system?? After much research I decided that I wanted to go with a complete Camburg set up for my FJ . (THANKS, DIGGER!!! :kiss: )
