    The color and the white bezel.
    All FJ Crusiers have a silver plastic bezel, the original FJ40s had a white one.

    As I have said on other forums where I have seen this rig, the color rocks.
    I like my silver, but had this been available, I would have ordered it.

    yeah? I bet that set him back a pretty penny. Chris, you're a baiter. haha

    I've seen that rig on the trail when it was still black. I was surprised by how capable it was.

    That looks GREAT. My old 40 is that color (however no gloss to it anymore!) and I love it.

    The Toyota savanah tan with white bezel and FJ emblems on the fenders look great!

    I think I might just paint my bezel white... Maybe later get the whole vehicle done in this color too. Where did he get the paint job done??

    I've never seen a 40 with a chrome or black bezel that was stock.???? Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Later,

    I've seen them on older 40's that were imported to the middle east.
    (Chrome ones, that is).

    I think it looks great. I'd love to see a few more with some oem 40 colors and a white bezel.

    Even without the Tan Toyota shoulda went with a white bezel to match the roof and a little more throwback to the 40.

    all most all were white. the last year or two of them, there was a ''chrome package'' option. so yeah for a few years there was a chrome oem bezel here in the states.

    I LOVE the color of this one. I prefer the understated colors better than the flash. And, I think badging it with LC stuff is a cool way to pay respect to the heritage.

    When I first read your post, I thought it was from a 40 to 50 year old.
    You show much wisdom in your young years.
