fj-in-terrainThe FJ Company is making its debut at the SEMA show in Las Vegas this year, and it’s bringing a a custom FJ43 Land Cruiser referred to as “The Aspen Project”. The build will be unveiled at the FJ Company booth #51315 at SEMA on Nov. 1.

The truck was commissioned by the president of the company, Juan Diego Calle, who wanted a purpose-built, family-friendly beast that could take on the rigors of everyday highway driving as well as the backcountry near Aspen, Col.

Like all The FJ Company builds, this one began with a full frame-off restoration with updates to the power steering, front disc brakes, heating and A/C.
