El Burro Loco For Sale..Long Travel, Marlin Crawler

Don't have enough posts for a for sale ad I guess. If this breaks some rule posting here instead, my bad.... Better than fluffin the old post count and wasting everyone's time. Thanks -Bobby

Decision has been made, and I am now selling my 2010 Toyota FJ Cruiser Trail Teams Special Edition with 48K miles. This isn't your average FJ Cruiser; this TT has been built with the best aftermarket parts available to turn it into an extremely capable and comfortable off-road machine. I am the original owner; title is clean and pink slip in hand. Not going to list off prices for all the aftermarket parts like you see in all the other ads - if you know what each one is then you will understand the quality of this build. I am sure I am forgetting a ton, and will have to keep adding to the list as I can remember them. Here is the majority of the build list:

2010 FJ Cruiser
Trail Teams Special Edition
Limited "Sandstorm" paint with color matched roof
Blacked out mirrors, grille & door handles from factory (not spray paint) Black hood decal from factory
2 tone matching Sand storm interior
Premium sound system with factory subwoofer
Upgraded in 2010 8.2" Rear axle (vs. 8")
Factory Locking rear Differential
A-Trac Traction control system
Rear view camera with rear view mirror display
Side Curtain airbags
Cruise control
Etc etc…

K&N Drop in Washable filter
Ultra Gauge OBD II Scanner/Monitor
Metal Tech Tube Doors w/Nets (For those nice warm days!)
Custom exhaust routed for Tummy tuck
Flow Master 50 series muffle w/custom high tuck tail pipe

This FJ can handle anything, from fast Baja washes to the rocky trails of Big Bear with ease. The body does have a few imperfections. There is a dent in the lower driver side rear door and plastic molding. The rear quarter panels also have dents from the rear bumper corners touching the body at full flex. Trail pin striping in the paint/clear coat but the beauty of the Sandstorm color is how well it hides them. You would never know until you looked real close. Driver seat back has a small tear in the lumbar support. Wheels have rock rash on outer rings and center caps. These are purely cosmetic, however if the buyer would like to have them taken care of I can have a local shop fix them towards a negotiated price between myself and buyer. Looking to start a new project, so my loss is your gain. I have a ton of extra parts that will come with the FJ for trail spares. Located in Poway, North County San Diego, CA. Asking 32k OBO. Willing to work with buyer on setting up shipping at buyers expense, and willing to meet within 300 miles of Poway (Deposit required). Sold as is. Not a dealer, this was my baby! PM for contact info.

Curious on how you like the 80 vs. the FJ. My wife has recently said she wants an FJ Cruiser. She drives a 07 double cab Tacoma now. Ive had a couple of 80s so I'm familiar with them. From an offroad perspective(lets just say the FJ had a similar setup with solid axle and good travel), which do you like more?
