Been wanting to start a build up page for a bit and now that I've done a few things to my rig decided to finally start a thread and I'll be hopefully updating frequently.

The AT-FJ (All Terrain FJ) spin on the star wars imperial walkers... AT-AT AT-ST AT-RT and so on and so forth.

2009 FJ w/ Off Road Pkg 70,000 miles

Here's my fj a few days after driving it off the lot


First trip up north to Mingus Mountain


First minor mods nothing crazy just blacked out the silver parts with rustoleum bed liner and plasti dipped my wheels


And my first semi-major mod was toss my stock rubber and cashing in on a killer opportunity to get a set of General Grabber Red Letters 285/75 16.


And


Special thanks to Trounce for helping me get my tires very quickly. We went a couple days after I mounted them and had some fun in the mud with our General Tires.





I've also picked up some basics, High lift mounted to my rear seats, recover straps and shackles, deflators and air compressor, as well as a handheld Midland CB and magnetic roof antenna.

So really just getting started, Ive had my truck for just over 4 months so I'm looking forward to adding more on in the coming months.

Mod to-do list

Suspension
Lighting
Rack
After market skid plates
Read door CB antenna mount
and I could go on and on...

Thanks I'll be updating this as I get the chance to make upgrades and photograph them.

That would be under the to-do list. Planning on doing a stage 2 icon suspension. I may get camburg UCAs instead though not sure yet, the Icon billet UCAs are just a little out of my price range.

Think you need to update this thread. Pretty sure you had a lift and a roof rack when I saw you yesterday!

Yes sadly its been way too long since I updated.

So thanks to some AZFJers I did get a rack as well as Richocet skid plates.

Via craigslist I picked up a couple pairs of rigid duallys for lighting.

On too suspension. I'm no running 5100s with eibach springs and a 1/2inch top plate spacer up front as well as Light racing UCAs. In the rear I'm running the Metal Tech Long Travel setup with icon 2.0s and I removed my rear sway bar as well.

And thanks to another AZFJ member picked up a front tube bumper which I'm enjoying and happy to have a place to mount lights easily.

Here are some updated pics.

Not pictured yet but most recently put a 10inch led bar between my other two dually spots on my front bumper.
