But my truck handled much better than my FJ did in the curvy sections because of the longer wheel base and lower center of gravity. If I try to take the same turn at the same speed in the FJ it feels like my bumper could be scraping the ground lol sway bars were off on both rigs.

Fabbing up a front bumper for the FJ.
Here is a rough idea of what I have in mind. The end result will look different, mainly sleeker/slimmer throughout the whole bumper. It will be tucked up as high as possible. This is just something we came up with just a couple measurements.

That is a sharp looking bumper! If my wife would let me put one like that on her FJ I would be happy!

My wife has an 07 FJ. After lots of rain the last few days, we have noticed water on the driver's side floor. I felt around under the dash & found a little moisture near the fuse panel. Anybody have an issue with this in the past & have a fix?

Spent some time on the wife's FJ this weekend. She insisted on having a grill guard which I found was quite interesting after putting a front internal winch mount on. I ended up having to fab some new brackets and then weld them to the wench mount which ended up working alright.



Now if I could just spend this much time and effort on my truck.
