Looks good!!! Now I'll have to train myself to "not" be on the lookout for your silver FJ, the blue cruiser should be easier to spot!First post. Bought a nice 100 to replace my FJC. Obviously I wanted better gas mileage for my ~100mi/ day commute. Loved my FJ, it was setup to tackle most of the Class VI NH roads and most anything else I wanted to run. Lifted on Bilstein 6112's/5160's. Full skids, sliders, AFtermarket upper/lower links etc.. Compared to my 1st gen taco the FJ was like having an easy button offroad. I really loved it, plus it didn't look like anything else on the road. That being said, it was not all that comfortable, pretty loud inside, and has very little space for 2 giblets. Plus it's like driving a submarine. After 230k+ miles I was looking for a little nicer place to be, some more space while still being able to wheel decently. The 100 isn't going flex nearly as well as my FJ, especially in the front. But it'll still be passable.
Found a nice 98 100. Decent service records, 210k miles. Originally from CO, and has only been up here in rustachussets for a few years. 1st owner (i'm the 3rd) had the 2 pinion front replaced with and ARB. 2nd owner installed BIOR sliders but never wheeled it. Otherwise it's stock and ready to be modded/ wheeled.

Thank You! Morimoto Mini D2S BiXenon HID and Sealed LEDs for High Beams. I should have gone with something replaceable for the dedicated High Beams. I'M likely gonna pull them out soon and go that route.Love your truck! Which projector did you go with? I'm itching to open mine back up and do LED projectors this time.
Oh wow, I did not expect you to say that last part... why? I was planning on using those units for high beams when I re-do my retrofit. Just not worth it? I'm currently running H7 LEDs for the high beams in the middle reflector (plus bixenon shutter) and it's great, but I really like the honeycomb look of those dedicated highs.Thank You!

I've got a set of these sitting in the garage waiting for me to do the same thing. Thinking about painting them black, but not sure if I can commit to that or not.
Shooting paint is the easiest and most fun thing to do. It’s the prep (scraping, sanding, wire wheel, degreasing, washing and masking) that is a PITA considering I’m already using pneumatic tools for faster turn around. Give yourself 2-3 days for all 4 wheels to get done.I've got a set of these sitting in the garage waiting for me to do the same thing.
