This Slammed FJ Cruiser Shows Unique Way Of Modifying An Off-Roader

Retro, burly, and prepared to get filthy – those are the phrases that would very best describe the Toyota FJ Cruiser. It has been nearly two a long time since Toyota arrived up with the strategy to remake the FJ40 in a fashionable setting, intended to draw in a younger established of car purchasers. The outcome, as we know it, was background.

But the FJ Cruiser was conceptualized with off-roading in intellect, which provides us to this modified case in point of the Toyota SUV. Constructed in the Philippines by Atoy Customs, this slammed FJ Cruiser is an clear antithesis to what most folks would do to personalize a auto meant to explore the streets less traveled.

Atoy Customs is recognised to personalize vehicles to outrageous extents in my residence country – from Manila-proofing humble folks-haulers to making very-capable off-roaders.

Ton Llave, the human being who handles Atoy Customs’ off-street division, resolved that it wasn’t heading to be just yet another working day in the office environment, nevertheless.He took a unique route with his quite own FJ Cruiser.

According to Street63, this Toyota SUV was reduced by mixing and matching Tein Endura Professional+ dampers to a KYB Xtage 40mm lowering springs. But certainly, it won’t prevent there. This create was meant to go speedy, so body weight reduction was important. See the non-existent spare wheel at the back?

Apart from that, lightweight Stealth Tailor made Sequence F5s wrapped in freeway tires ended up applied, furthermore an motor tune blended with intake, header, exhaust updates resulted in a nutritious electricity bump to 238 horsepower at the wheels and 253 pound-feet (343 Newton-meters) of torque – extra than adequate for a freeway cruiser.

Some (if not most) purists would probably cringe at the strategy of lowering an FJ Cruiser to the floor. But then once more, this is just an case in point of points you can do when you imagine exterior the box. To every his own, as they say.
