Warrior Products front winch bumper for Toyota FJ CruiserWarrior Products has released a new front winch bumper for the FJ Cruiser. The bumper fits 2007-2012 models, although Warrior doesn't specify if a washer bottle relocation kit is part of the package. The winch bumper is steel and includes D-Rings and of course a winch mounting location. A brush guard is also available with or without a light bracket. From the photos shown, it looks like the bumper provides a pretty good approach angle but we won't know for sure until we get a closer look at one. Click the photo for the product website.
Last week at the FJ Summit, Mike Fort (Owner of Toyota of Pekin) and Joe Bacal, from JT Grey Performance Driving announced a new Special Edition FJ Cruiser project. What we're dubbing the "Joe Bacal SE FJC" will be a complete package setup for desert racing and will be available this fall. Other details haven't been released yet, but we're expecting the new truck to debut at SEMA 2012 later this year. Since Joe will be consulting on all the modifications, we're sure it'll be THE FJ Cruiser to own.
Toyota added the 2013 FJ to their website today, so we can get a better look at the options and configure our ‘ideal’ factory build. The photo gallery includes the new colors, but there’s a good chance those are photochopped in. We’ve seen pics of “Magma” in the wild, but haven’t found one close enough to take our photos yet.
We configured a good ‘base’ MT Magma model on the site using the “Build your FJ Cruiser” tool, and came out to $31,490 with the “Convenience Package” and no other options. We expect that you may be able to do a little better if you take delivery from dealer stock. We’ve seen a few ’13 models locally, but we’re waiting for a Magma to take a test drive.
The Cement Grey Trail teams edition is also on the site, and shows the standard set of photos & information on the new model. Like the Magma, we're unsure of the color until we se it in person. It will be hard to beat the 2012 TTSE as far as we're concerned.
