I have a 2007 TRD Edition FJ Cruiser as well and it eats gas like crazy so I decided to get a daily gas saver that matched.

First thing I did was tint, they use Solar Gard and I did 25% and 35% for the factory look. Autonation Champion Toyota gets all of their vehicles tinted at Hurricane Auto and I went direct for a cheaper price!

Just got the iPod/iPhone cable in, does anyone know if it will work for the lighting cable adapter for the newer iPhones?

Got a hold of a new TRD cold air intake, got excited and installed it half way, stopped and took it back off. Decided it flooded too much in my area and didn't want to risk it. Will be up for sale here or elsewhere shortly.

Finally got these in the mail, the LED does the hyper flash for signaling and these eBay load resistors did the trick.

Test fit and reused the old heat insulation from the original engine cover over. Wanted something a little different with the decal and went with an old school style Toyota TRD decal
with Japanese letterings they use to put on the TRD Celica's and Supra's at the dealership back in the days.

Wanted to give the car a little more accent and matching red stitching for a cleaner look. Picked up an OEM manual shifter boot, a 10 dollar TRD replica **** and a thread adapter.

I was happy with the quailty of bluebatoverlays yellow overlays, I did for the foglights on the FJ Cruiser as well.
