Weathertechs, just ordered mine. Wish I had got them first, after 9 months the carpet is already getting fucked with the stock mats in.

I'd go with the seat covers while the seats don't have anything spilled on them yet.

The FJ wheels that are on it now look good and when you go to sell them will fetch a nice price, so I'd say wait on the rims. And I wouldn't go for 5100's until I lifted it and had bigger tires to put on.

Or go with softop/bestop if you need the extra dry space of the bed.

i like the fj wheels, i got the stockers on my 12 off road, but.... thinking about fall time swapping out to a sport package.... it will lower my payment also, so might just do that, even though im completely happy with mine

Yeah i agree with most of the others here Weathertechs mats help your carpet stay clean. Then you can start on the rest. As for seat covers, i cover mine with a towel for the mean time getting the covers soon though. Just install the billies 5100's and set the front at 1.75 Awesome! Good luck man

I when with Downsouth Motorsports all billies 5100's all around and ICON 3 leaf pack add on so it goes with your stock leaf springs. It added a 1.75 inch in the front and 1.5 inch in the back. It all depends what lift height you looking for. Toytec has good kits too.

Yeah your best bet is to get a kit if you going with full 3 inches, i just when with 1.75 in with my stock coils and its a soft ride. I havent install my bigger tires yet i got Nitto Terra Grapplers 265/70/17 that would add another 1 in 1/2 to the lift. Good luck man.
