So in January 2011 I purchased a Iceberg TRD automatic FJ from Fred Anderson in Raleigh. I had it for about a month and I purchased little things like Husky Floor Liners and got the front two windows tinted 20%. I also purchased a A-Trac button for $60.00 because for some reason my FJ did not come from the factory with it.

Picture as soon as I got it home.

 I soon got the itch to do something to it. I purchased a ToyTec lift kit and installed it myself.

After: 2011 Iceberg TRD automatic Build Thread 2012-06-15_19-47-52_70

After the lift install I decided to tint the rear windows 5% over the stock. Lets just say aint no sun gett'in through there. I also added a custom Shove/ Axe Mount to the roof rack using some brackets I found at Lowes and some QuickFists.

After that I decided I liked the "black out" look so I plasti-dipped my front and rear bumpers. And upgraded the headlights to Silvania ZXE (they are really bright).

I guess the deer didn't like my plasti-dip so it ran into me Evil or Very Mad. Now the FJ has a bumper from a trail teams.

Also I added some Outpost Off road sliders I purchased from Brian. Rattle caned them with a combination of bed coat and black spray paint.

Then I added Wet Okle camoflague seat covers to the front seats only right now. I also went with the gun pocket on the seat cover.

Then most recently I plasti-dipped my stock TRD rims.

That deer must've been running fast to hit you and do that much damage.  Looking good!

Does Lowes also carry QuickFist? I'm thinking of adding a shovel to my ride too.

I don't know how fast the deer was running, but I was running about 65 mph. It was about 3 in the morning too, waiting about 2 hours for a Trooper Evil or Very Mad  I don't think lowes has the Quickfist's. I ordered mine when I ordered my lift.

Looks awesome man, I like your style with the camo seats and Springfield, I have a very similar setup!  By the way, what kind of fixed blade is that you're carrying, and do you have it strapped to the E-brake?

Its a Gerber Prodigy I believe. I actually won it at the truck show last year. Its between the brake and the seat and the molle type straps are on the brake handle.

Plasti Dip is not just for trim, bumpers and rims anymore: I did the front grill and I didn't stop there, and before anyone asks yes the light still shines through it. Even in the day light, its only 2 thin coats.
