Re: unique Mods.. Post your pix here

you are them Man!!! I should thank you for your build up!. i got the line-x idea from you.. hahaha.. I though i was the first to line-x my door handle. side mirrors and snorkel. :lol: you line-x your entire rig. check out my mod regarding line-x roof

Thanks Again SwiCago!!!! Rock On:rocker::cheers::wave:
LOL .. well, actually the first to linex an FJ was a woman, ATLANTACRUISING . She linex'd her Silver FJ to Brick. But as far as I know, she did not do the roof, nor under the panels like I did. So, I believe I am still the first to truly linex the entire rig, including Sills, Under all panels and wrap around under all doors to inside.
Link to the tear down

PS: Your rig is looking sweet Rock on Brother :rocker:

Since custom DIY counts, how about these...





Do I at least get "style" points?

SWISSARMYSUV front bumper fog light kit adapted for the rear bumper wings.



Originally as brush guard, now it function as a push guard that is solidly attached to the Lucrum winch mount. Firestik antennas as side markers.

That is some very nice work! I want to make a set of the skids for the links too soon. Did you use the original bolts or get longer ones? The head markings aren't the same as mine.

Can't take any credit for the ideas - just the design ideas I saw for them in "my" head.

Re: unique Mods.. Post your pix here

When it comes to functionality, my FJ falls behind many on the forum. On the other hand... when it comes to unique I think I have you covered.

Most recently I made my own rackless light bar and mounted 4 hella 500's on it to keep cost down.



Made modular with a single weatherproof plug and 4 bolts


All finished up



Switches for my lights


One of my favorite and simplest mods to date are the 1W amber LED's in the mirrors.


I also added some 5mm amber LED's in the hella 500's


Everything lit up


On the lighting note I also modded the OEM headlight housings to accept an Infinity FX-35 hid projector.



Finally... the last super cool mod to the FJ is the on board air system (mounted under the rear of the FJ) with "train horn"




A work in progress...

ARB ON BOARD Air Compressor...

here's some install pics of the ARB Compressor:

I installed the actual compressor at the tech meet...
that was prolly the easiest piece of the whole project...basically just had to figure out where i was gonna place it...the compressor is a really nice piece of machinery and can be adjusted in several places which is great if you have to mount it in a tight spot..fortunately for the FJ...on the passenger side above the fender well, there's plenty of room...



prior to the tech meet, i did the wiring inside the cabin...i spent some time with the 'provided harness' cleaning it up a bit as it came with switches, etc for a front and rear air locker...i removed the wiring for the front and rear locker switches...that made it easy to fit the rest thru the fire wall..



i ran the harness behind the glove box to the series of switches below the HU...
had to use a dremel to make the switch fit...



then to the fuse box using an add-a-circuit...still need to tie in the illumination wire...
this pic was before i put the 2 fuses in the add-a-circuit



to mount the relay, i found a nice threaded hole near the hood damper on the pass side..



here's a pic of the comp with the pressure switch and coupler for the airhose..



used some 1/4 wire loom for the hot and ground wires running them to the battery in the front of the engine bay...removing the plastic cover on top of the radiator..i ran the loom along side of the loom that was already there (between the two coolers), using zip ties along the way..

here's a pic of the finished install
