Hey Bucketboy, Yep, I'd definitely remember your rig if I had seen it, so I haven't had the pleasure yet. I'll keep an eye out.

Except for a skid plate, all my extra FJ cash so far has gone into a premium sound system. Once I install some beefier control arms, the next thing on my list is a trail-worthy front bumper.

Rock Rails and Tires should be a higher priority.

Then suspension THEN Bumper. Adding weight without support is a recipe for trouble.

Greetings, my name is Nick and I live in Tucson. I just bought my first Toyota (2018 4Runner TRD Offroad) and wasted no time in modifications. I owned a Land Rover Disco II before this but too expensive to fix! Found out about this site through Jimbolio who I ran into on my first excursion in Reddingtion with the new 4Runner (Italian Trap). I am not into clubs but upon review of this site - it is not a club so there are no members! I have combed the site and realized this is a group of people who just like to go hit some trails and have fun, my kind of people.

So far I have added full skids to the underside (front, engine, transmission, gas tank, rear diff, lower control arms), 3" Icon stage 7 lift (front coil overs, rear overland springs, shocks with remote reservoir and CDC valve, upper/lower trailing arms, stabilizer), 285/70/17 BFs AT KO2 (33s), cold air intake, ARB single pump and MOREFLATE system, and soon I will be adding a front and rear bumper.

I look forward to joining on some runs and getting to know more like minded people in the offroad exploration community. See you out on the trails!

(I guess I need to review the section on how to upload pictures, will upload once I learn this one!)

Welcome Nick from Tucson! That's 'from Tucson' as in Nick from Tucson and also 'from Tucson' as in welcome from Tucson. Laughing

Glad you finally found your way here! We'll have some fun now. (BTW, he has an awesome 4 Runner).

I joined when I bought my FJ a couple years ago but due to life I rarely got out. I've sorted that which was depriving me of enjoying the FJ and I finally lifted it and got some decent llantas. I look forward to maybe meeting some of you some day. I would love to wheel with ya!

Hi, I'm Mina! Stock 2012 army green FJ, 4x4, automatic, no roof rack.

Honestly, I'm not savvy at all when it comes to anything automotive, but I'm trying really hard to research and understand to do a good job modifying it with solid products. Suggestions and advice are appreciated! Don't be surprised if you have to dumb it down like you're explaining it to a mechanically uninclined third-grader, though. Smile

Ultimately, I want to add a hard shell rooftop tent so we can get out of the valley regularly.

Currently planned:
- Lift (?)
- Offroad Tires
- Rack - looking at BajaRack, opinions?
- Hard Shell Rooftop Tent
- Brush Guard
- Winch
- Swing Out Bumper

Hope to meet some of you along the way, and thanks in advance for sharing your knowledge with me.

Welcome JokersRoulette (Mina)!!

If you are looking at offroad tires.. then maybe you would look at a mild lift. A lift is often added for two reasons 1) to fit a larger tire 2) to enhance performance

It is all about how YOU want to use YOUR vehicle.

Look forward to see you out there on the trails.
