When it comes to online communities for the FJ Cruiser, there are plenty of options for you to check out. Forums and other communities are great places to learn more about your truck, find out information about modification options and learn how do to those mods, and read reviews and installation instructions written by true enthusiasts. Whether you're looking for information on all the FJ Cruiser Bumper options, looking for the best tire for a daily driver, or just want to find nearby FJC enthusiasts, nothing conects you with others like FJ forums & other communities.
Prompted by this thread on FJCruiserForums.com, we’ve compiled a nice graphic illustrating the FJC Colors from 2007-2013 (for the North American Market). So far Toyota has released 20 different color combinations for the FJ Cruiser, and has slowly moved away from the bright colors in the original 2007 model year toward more basic colors (Magma being the exception).
We first found out about this FJ from our friends at iLounge, but now we have the full skinny. This sweet FJC was put together for the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show last week by Scosche and Hurley, and althought it's a 'show truck' it's still pretty cool.
The cool camo wrap is a weird contrast to the aloha seats inside, but a show truck has to wow people. We like the All Pro Bumpers and other off road features such as Rigid LED lights as well. For details on all the gizmos, check out this full article.
Toyota has announced that the concept "Baja Ready" FJ-S FJ Cruiser will be on display at SEMA next week. This looks like the same truck TRD brought to the FJ Summit last July, but haven't received confirmation from Toyota yet. At any rate, this truck looks great and we'll be sure to get more details when we get to Vegas. You can follow all of our SEMA coverage on our SEMA 2012 Page.

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.
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.
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.
We've seen a few shots of the 2012 Trail Teams Edition FJ Cruiser around the web, but out friends from TRDParts4U managed to do a full shoot on a new arrival, and shared those pics with us.
