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.

Under the hood is a 210-hpToyota 1FZ engine (a 4.5L DOHC 24-valve inline 6 with Haltech Electronic Fuel Injection) and a 5-speed manual transmission.
