    THE STORY

    I started out with a 2007 Tacoma TRD Sport. Started having a lot of problems with it so I sold all the parts and traded it in on a 2010 FJ Cruiser.

    Took her out for her first little expedition, no reall good action shots, and it was pretty mellow because it was my first time in the FJ

    FJ was pretty much stock up to this point. Decided it was time for tires and did not want to buy 265's so I decided to throw on my old spacer lift and throw some 285/75-16's on there. Looked around for a while on a tire that didnt break the bank. I came across the Kelly Safari TSR. An aggressive looking all terrain, and it had great reviews. So while we were at it, decided to take off the fender flares and paint the wheels. A complete black out is in the near future.

    The wheel paint is metallic grey. Wanted something different than the black, and Jonny suggested this, so I said screw it and tried it out.

    Ya I just noticed that when I looked at your build. I like it, I see you went with the lift over the boobs :thumbsup: How do you like the lights? I'm not too impressed with mine, the outside ones actually dont work now, I think its the switch.

    Looking good. Better than me and my trucks a year old.

    Ok, so nothing new yet, the only thing new is that I have decided to go with the All Pro LT kit. $2900 down, about $2900 to go. I have decided to go with the hybrid front winch mount bumper, Its different. So those are my next big mods, I still need to get my sliders painted and welded on, BHLM, Mag light mount, floor mats, and wet okole's. I have been so busy with work I havent had time to do harly anything. But that is also how I am able to pay for this adiction. :D

    Well didnt get to follow through with the AP LT right now, got laid off sooner than anticipated and didnt want to blow all my savings and not be able to do anything this winter. So I have some personal issues going on right now but I have to get rid of this leveling kit so I am thinking of getting the OME 3" kit and LR UCA's since they are relatively cheap to hold me over for about another year.

    The lift rides kinda rough. When turning or having the wheel drop into a ditch or hole then I experience an annoying clunk. I know there are people that have it happen on here too, not sure what they have.

    Might be ordering the suspension soon. How stiff is it gonna be with 886's on there with no bumper? I dont know when I will order the ARB & winch, so will probably ride with the 886's for a while.
