"The Rock" 2013 FJ Cruiser TT (1 Viewer)

Feb 6, 2007
Some of you may know my truck from a few other sites, but I realized I never posted a build thread here are the details of it. I will update it with pics of some of the modifications as time goes on

After a few changes in direction about doing some major mods to my FJ , then deciding to change the motor and s/c , then a few other ideas, After the new TT came out in the Cement color. I toyed with the idea of getting a new one. Then, one came in and I decided to look at it.
12/12/12, I went down and signed the papers .
Here's where the build begins.

2013 Cement TT. Notable mods that are new to me are, Crawl Control and Rear View Camera

"The Rock"
It seems like I rack my brain trying come up with a a name and the meaning behind it. This time it was simple, FJess, thought it looked like a rock . Thank you Jess.

Demello Offroad is making a Swing-out . I took my FJ to Riverside CA and left it with Jason for a few weeks to get The major part of the concept off the ground . We installed this at the FJ Cruiser Summit in Ouray Colorado. It will be going back to his shop again, so a production version cam be made
The completed prototype is installed and working
It will have a camera provision, LED lights for the license plate, cut outs dimple die holes and more stuff to make it a complete product.

Its hot in Phoenix. The Rotopax are not liking it.

Something different for the center section. Jason decided to make the areas where the sensors straight down, instead of the angle they had.

He also wrapped the corners farther down. It just gives it a more complete look and will add strength too

The license plate with have the screws that have LED's in them. plus the camera will be mounted to the center section. We will be sourcing the plugs to make an extension camera harness

Admittedly, I haven't hit any trails that will peel the paint off the side of my truck, but the limited pin striping I got, does scratch the wrap. Otherwise it has held up really well. You can hardly tell there are any scratches

I switch them back and forth . I really like the Red Letters for the look and size. they ride nice and handle well. They are just too heavy for daily street use. I liked them lots in the desert. It seems you can air them down to almost nothing and still have a sidewall. I think the lugs are deeper, so they handle mud a little better , but wet traction on the street goes to the AT2's , because of the siping . I have had no issues with balancing with either of them. For all around performance the AT2's but in the desert the Red Letters for sure
