    Go for lights, lift kit or roof rack. We are all just telling you from experience because more than likely one of us bought something we regret. If you go for lights don’t go cheap (you will regret it) aske me how I know. lol. I now have diode dynamics and absolutely love them. I’ve literally submerged them and they stayed on. Roof rack I love my Sherpa. Suspension I like eibach. But continue to ask this community. There are a lot of damn good people on here. We just don’t want you to make the same mistakes we’ve made

    Right on for the suggestion!

    Based on all the help, I'm going to get a tune to start. Going to make sure everything is prime for trailing. Afterwards I think I'm going to snag the Morimoto XB Amber Headlights.

    Also, sick rig! It looks CLEAN

    True enough. But for all intents and purposes, it does not exist for the U.S. market.

    I'm sure there's a distributor in other countries selling these FJ parts.

    Just upgrade your bulbs to LEDs, you'll save a TON of money over changing to actual LED headlight and taillight assemblies. As for your original question about the K&N or TRD intake, I have the Airaid CAI on my '23 Limited, along with a Pedal Commander. I didn't get the TRD CAI for two reasons, one was cost, the other was the sensor was on the top of the tube.

    I have the TRD one. No issues. I did split the wire loom. Used electrical tape to reseal. Just followed the instructions to determine how to run the wires.
