    I love the FJ's. If I didn't want a pickup I would probably have one. That 4runner isn't bad either!

    Nice collection of Toyota's! The FJ is one of the few vehicles i'd get rid of my truck for.
    Hmmm you have me thinking now haha you get a good deal?

    Got some little stuff done lately. Put the LED mirror lights in today and started blacking out the silver pieces. When I got the FJ it had the toyota skid plate up front I had taken it off then decided today to skuff it up and shoot it flat black. I think turned out ok. I then took the center silver rear bumper insert off and did it. I installed some 55watt halogen fog lamps a couple days ago. Does anyone have any tips on taking door handles and mirrors off to paint?

    Thanks, hopefully within the next year we will be able to add an FJ. We've got a 225 TT roadster that we don't drive anymore to sell, then trade the wifes Sport Trac for the FJ. Anyway, what your doing looks really good.
