Ok good news is I will have my fj back the first of the year
Bad news some money fell through on upgrades
So I am sticking to the stock tires no lift yet
I am adding lights and a brush guard
And maybe rock rails
So looking forward to haveing it back can't wait to hit the trails with you guys

Skip the brush guard and lights. Sliders are a good idea

yeah the brush guard will actually do more damage due to the flimsy nature of it...skip that and the lights...get the rock rails and spend the money on a lift, tires, interior leds..lol...

A "brush guard" is useless. A new steel "bumper" is not useless!

The Australians call a brush guard a "Roo-Bar" cause so many dang Kangaroos run out in front of vehicles on the road...hum, sounds like a brush guard could be useful for something else...oh yeah! a "Deer-Bar" and where I live (the deer capital of NC) if I get one, that'll be the reason.

This is only when it is a part of a sturdy bumper attached to the frame. A brush guard here in the US is not the same. It will do very little to help against a deer, or kangaroo Very Happy if you come across one.

I have the brush guard...If I didn't have it already...would not add it.
LIFT: if you are not getting a package, then I would go with Bilstein 5100 up front set in 4th position, rear springs (OME is what I have) and a set of 5100s for the rear.

I'm not wanting to go too extreme with my ride but I do plan on doing the 5100's up front.

Mine is my daily driver so it needs to be road friendly. I have the previously mentioned lift items...Tires: Falken Rocky Mountain ATs 285s and have removed my rear sway bar. Gets me up and over most obstacles like Daniel Trail at URE...

sliders are a MUST for sure.

Gents! I JUST ORDERED THE 5100's. Call it a Christmas present to myself...along with the tactical shotgun setup I bought a couple days ago. Does the doghouse have heat? Rocking chair? Hum...maybe I should've checked that out first... :-D

It's ALL good...easier to ask for forgiveness...AND get her a GREAT present. I find jewelry works best. I went to Jareds...
