Re: unique Mods.. Post your pix here

Does it have to be like custom DIY mods, or also aftermarket parts that one or few are using?

yeah custom DIY or any after market parts that you had to customize to make it look bad a$$ or better. If you cut it, trim it painted it custom made one of a kind post it. something like that:rocker: I've seen alot of scattered unique mods in this forum why not bring it in one place :bigthumb: :wave:

Re: unique Mods.. Post your pix here

i saw a PVC pipe snorkel mods here, also custom roof rack by jerseymike. Air intake coming from inside of the FJ. guy used a Cambell can i think FJFRed did that mod..

But, Hey Keep it coming it doesn't matter how they look or how much they cost if you build it for a reason I'd like to see it:wave::cheers:

Here is a custom bike carrier for my down hill. It attaches to the spare tire mount. I was worried about the extra weight being on the door but so far no problems. I have taken some pretty good off road "bumps" with the bike on and no bends or anything of that sort. Note: I normally take off the front tire for clearance.

Wasn't going to post these pics yet till I was done but what the hay. Here is a aluminum roof rack I'm making. Haven't put in the middle bars yet, this will eventually be powder coated. The whole thing is 1/8" aluminum.





Up next will be front and rear bumpers!

Looks great already even if it's not done. keep us posted if you finished it. regarding the bike rack that was a clever idea. i wonder if you could also put an extra gas tank carrier on those stock spare tire rack. hmmm????:wave: custom made bumpers.. i gotta see that.....

that is something you don't see everyday. very nice mod. you don't have to kneel down under your rig and plug your trailer wires. very cool. i have a stock on mine but, i don't think i will be using that anytime soon. i have no trailer, i have no boat. i have nothing to pull :bigthumb: the only purpose of my tow hitch is to pull a stuck rig in the mud:lol: :cheers:

Re: unique Mods.. Post your pix here

Thanks for the nice compliment. I just can't seem to stop fussing with my FJ.

I tinkered around with cars as a younger man but it is nice to be a little more settled and be able to be creative.

I am already designing the next rack for the FJ. It will have a smaller side profile that flows better into the baja light rack.

BTW it still fits in a standard 7' garage door opening.

i can't wait to see the photos of your next mods.. I myself also likes to work on my cars. i have a 2005 scion tc, 98 camry and the Big Bad Black FJ all of my cars are loaded with TRD.. I wanna build a house around my FJ hahaha. the first thing would be the garage. I'd like to make my garage bigger so i can fit the FJ in it :clap::wave:
