First of many dispatches. The show does not open officially until tomorrow, but I have been here since Sunday due to my truck being on display.

Just a few pictures, but a fun start. The truck looks good in person, and a few mods help reduce some of the "roundness".

Specter also has quite a few FJ's on display 40, 45's, 60's, etc. All beautiful trucks.

I will post more updates this afternoon. I have to run and get the truck set, but I though some of you would enjoy this :)

The green FJ Cruiser has (or appears to have) a winch integrated behind the stock bumper! That would be cool!

that green one looks very nice, i think there might be some hope for the color selection. you think that might be a factory bumper?

Scott,
Thanks for the pics and SEMA updates...pretty cool. If you think of it...and can snap pics of any trailers you see... that would be helpful to me:) (ala M416/Adventure Trailers style trailers).

The green one does have an integrated winch. It was a very clean, and tightly fitted solution, so it may be a factory option.

Unfortunately, the green one does have the slanted spare tire. I am sure that will be one of the first widely adopted appearance mod, to straighten that sucker out.

I will be shooting hundreds of images today, and will get them on the site tonight.

LOTS of eye candy :)

Hey Scott, did you check out any of the Rockcrawling in the parking lot? What a blast... :D

Yeah, that was a blast :)

The course was actually very impressive, and made for great spectator action. I really think this will have some legs...

ARB looks like a modified prado bar... anyone know?

Looks like it to me too. They cut the wings way short to fit. Looks ok except the corner isn't the best- but I'm sure it will look alot better for production ARB.

The FJ55 is the best looking one, man that is awesome. Any more pics of that Scott?

yeah, I meant to comment on that 55 more. It is an absolutely stunning restoration.

But, if I had my choice, I would snag that sweet LWB :)

Nice to see the ARB if I was to buy a FJ Cruiser (if...) that hideous front bumper would be the first thing to go. Now if Slee makes a rear bumper... :cool:

I wish I would have known you were down there, we competed Saturday and Sunday, and hung out at the Maxxis trailer the rest of the time... :D
