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:

::::knock on wood::::: it doesn't have the TOB squeak. Everything is stock, and the last thing I plan to do is drop the trans.

Nice FJ Homie!
I "walked" by my X an hour ago to get to the washing machine...
I've got parts all over the garage so does "not stepping" on them count towards what I did with my X today?

Highly doubt that....weren't many of those kits in use even when NST wasn't stealing people's money.

Yup. I remember that too. I know NST probably still has these idler pulleys for other cars. And It’s a common size. Getting in touch with them is another story all together.
