    Had my truck for over 2 years now and have been slowly building it up to where I want it so I figured it was time to start a build thread. I dont get out on the trails as much as I like to because of work but love this truck every time I get the chance to go out in it.

    Bought in October of 2010 for $17,250:
    2005 2.7l Access Cab 4x4 mt w/45,600 miles
    What she looked like the day I brought her home:
    [​IMG]

    The Guy I bought it from had put a Revtek spacer lift w/blocks on it, new wheels and tires (Yokohama Geolander M/T 285/75/16), Step bar, bug guard, doug thorely header, K&N intake, as well as a bunch of other stuff all with receipts. He had only put 10,000 miles on it in the three years he owned it and had all the paperwork to prove it. Gotta love rich people who drop money into stuff they hardly drive. Had about $10,000 in receipts from him.

    Taking what the previous owner had done in the suspension, I went out with some guys from here and the FJ forums to Naches

    They've been fairly good to me so far and I don't have any complaints about them. They have about 40k on them right now and are definitely starting to show the wear but it's what I expected from m/t so Im not complaining. Haven't decided if Im going to get them again when it comes time to buy new tires though.
