    So I just joined an FJ Cruiser forum because well, I've finally retired the X-Runner from daily driving at 217,000 miles. But this is one of the fun threads I saw over there and thought it would be a good way to get a little more chatter around here. So what did you do to your X-Runner today?

    I replaced mine with this pig as my DD. 2011, Army Green, FJ Cruiser "Not So Special Edition", 6 speed manual. The NSSEs were supposed to be Trail Teams Special Editions but arrived in the states without many of the TT upgrades due to the tsunami in Japan. Buyers had the option to wait for a fully built TT or add the upgrades at the dealer. Clearly this one got the upgrade treatment. She's got the TRD wheels, Warrior front bumper, roof rack, JBL sound system, and rock sliders. It's unknown exactly how many there are but it's thought to be less than 100 total. TTSEs were 1 of 2500 each model year. Manual transmissions were estimated to be about 10% of the total production. So the way I see it I've got roughly 1 of 10 manual NSSEs. :cool:

      I added an exhaust tip that fill the tunnel. Way better than stock.

      Looks like you go t the wheels refinished. You do them in powdercoat again or just have them pained. Either way they look good

      That’s the spare and the other wheel u gave me. Was gonna put some drag radials on them. But now I like the brand new glossy black and might have to powdercoat 2 more and run them on the truck.

      I wish you luck. I've gotten to the point where I'm tired of working on my trucks. I moved away from my buddy with a shop and have gotten to the age where I don't want to lay in the driveway working on it and don't have the room to pull anything.

      Just click “upload a file”. Select the image. Upload. Then once it’s uploaded choose to add it to the post by thumbnail or full size image....
