I recently picked up my FJ semi locally after searching for months. Looking at a few just to find they were beat, wrecked, or seriously neglected. I was about to hop on a flight to California to look at one when I found the one I purchased about an hour from me. Just driving up to it I could tell it was not like the others I had looked at and was already hopeful this could be the one and my search would be over. After looking it over and a test drive, I knew this was the one for me. It already was setup with some of the things I would have done and fits my needs pretty well (was looking for something I could take into the woods to help get me to new trail heads for backpacking, hunting, and some family camping all while being capable of daily duties so that the Evo could take a break for a few years). This is also the reason I am here on this site. There was OB badges on it and when I got home I looked up what this was about. I recently joined under my own member number and will be replacing the badges with my own. I was grateful for the "search member by OB number" because I was able to find the badge owner. Well come to find out it was the guy I bought the rig from. I will be sending them back to him so he can use them on another vehicle someday.

Here is what was already installed:
  • OME Lift
  • 35" Duratracs on Stealth F5 Wheels
  • MetalTech Front Tube Bumper w/ Winch Mount
  • 10k Smittybilt X20 Wireless
  • ARB Twin Compressor
  • Demello Rock Sliders
  • Cobra 75 WX ST CB Radio





I already have some new goodies on the way...hopefully meet some of you in the future!

Putting together some recovery gear recently. One trip without the isolators made for some interesting trail rattles. Next one should be much quieter.

Another very minor addition. Was waiting for the lock pin to show up before I put the recovery receiver on.

Spent some time this weekend giving this thing a way to turn the night into day.
Added a Rough Country 50” Curved light bar and a 12” light bar. I will need to get a night shot next.

Well not necessarily FJ or rig related gear but definitely a couple of nice additions to my overall equipment.

Stihl MS261-C and Pro Forestry Axe

Scored a couple of Pelican 1650s at a local garage sale for super cheap. The one appears to be brand new. Haven’t decided if my dry food is worthy of a box or just devote them to lockable gear storage.

Great lookin rig bro! I've got a lot of the same things on my rig. First thing I would recommend is getting a 13 gallon semi-round trash can and stick in that trasharoo. You will be glad you did. They tend to sag but do much better with the plastic trash can in there. Love seeing those FJ's out there!

Thanks for the tip. Mine does sag and annoys me but it has been useful. I will look into this.
