    Would like to start off with my Toyota history. My first vehicle was a 99 single cab Tacoma. I kept it bone stock but it opened my eyes to the 4wd world. I have since then built up a couple other Toyota's.

    I love Toyota's so here is the start of my FJ build.

    My plans for this rig is to keep it semi DD friendly but still be able to tackle anything I throw at it. I want to be able 3-4 hours to the trail and drive back no problems. I am going to try to keep it semi mild with 3" lift, 33-35's, and the basic armor(bumpers,sliders and skids)

    I traded my Tacoma for the FJ. It was bone stock so I was ready for another Toyota build. I kept my wheels and tires from the Tacoma to put on the FJ. They are 255/85/16's so I had to cut to fit. Here is a pic of the FJ with the tires/wheels.

    I love cutting on my rigs.
    Here is some pics from the body chop mount.

    Turned out really nice. Here is a finished picture. Finally no rubbing!

    Next on the list will be a spare KM2, probably an OME lift and possibly custom sliders.
    I work at a machining shop so I deal with metal everyday. I may start to work on a custom front/rear bumper soon. Have a lot of ideas running through my mind with this rig so we will have to see how it unfolds.

    Forgot I had a build thread on here. Here's some updates.

    I've added Old Man Emu suspension all around, made skids, ordered my spare km2 have a front bumper cut out and yesterday removed my rear bumper so I can get started on a custom rear bumper.

    Rear bumper removed. Looking naked.

    Thanks. It actually didn't come with the roof rack but I am a fan of the neked look. It makes it a little different from the rest but I'm looking into getting a canoe or kayak so may have to get some sort of rack.
