    Hi all,

    Looking forward to reading/researching FJ Cruiser upgrades and trails to run. Picked up my FJ last night and I'm having a blast. It's a hell of a change from my other car.

    Welcome Paul from San Diego - I recognize the Mile-o-Cars. Couple of years back, I went from a TT 225 to an Avalance and I know what you mean about the difference. Now in an FJ as my DD. Go out to Anza-Borego/Ocotillio Wells and have a blast. BTW, invest in sliders, its money well spent. Congrats on your aquisition.

    Thanks, I've only found 1 aftermarket manufacturer of rock sliders for the FJ. Still researching to see what else is on the market.

    nice Audi and congrats on the FJ. For sliders look at Toyota, All-Pro, Demello and Bent-up.

    Hey everyone,

    Like paul_858 I to am new to the forum.

    I have had my Silver FJC, auto, 4wd since 7/23/06. I traded in my 2003 Camry V6 XLE. After 10 years of driving BMWs, I was just never satisfied with the handling and ride of the front wheel drive Camry.

    My FJC looks just like Paul's (but without the roof rack). I also have the convenience package and upgrade package #2 .

    I opted for few accessories. I didn't want to limit myself to what the vehicle came with from the mfg, but rather see what the after market released in the coming months. But I did get the oh-so-important passenger side arm rest. My wife insisted (I'm not whipped, I wear the pants in this family and she gave me permission to say so!).

    Expect to see me asking a lot of questions and looking for advice in the future. It will be your chance to build a better FJC with other people's money.
