Atoy Customs Slams Toyota FJ Cruiser Mere Inches Off The Ground

This Toyota FJ Cruiser is not for off-roading; it’s lowered, lightened and tuned for the city.


  • The FJ Cruiser is well-loved by off-roading enthusiasts.

  • Most are modified for serious excursions off the beaten path.

  • Atoy Customs has done the exact opposite.


We really like what Atoy Customs, based in the Philippines, has done with the Toyota FJ Cruiser. In North America, most owners will keep their cherished and slowly appreciating FJ Cruisers in stock form. As is, they are extremely capable off-roaders. Some will take them closer to the clouds by lifting them, slapping on huge boggers, lockers, winches and the like. The goal behind this creation was exactly the opposite.

Atoy Customs’ Ton Llave had a different idea for his personal Toyota FJ Cruiser and we could not be more enthused with the results of his creative thinking. From the street63.com story, the most notable change is that the FJ Cruiser sits much closer to the ground thanks to some Tein Endura Pro+ shock absorbers with some Kyb Xtage 40mm lowering springs. He also improved the truck’s brakes with larger discs and calipers which are partially hidden by lovely Stealth Custom Series flowform wheels and Falken street tires.

The engine’s also bene upgraded to produce more power thanks to an ECU tune, AC long headers, an AC Y-pipe and more exhaust system upgrades. The intake’s been fiddled with as well.

Other physical changes include carbon fibre accents including a custom front chin spoiler with brake duct vents and a Carstyle spare tire delete – this is a big part of the weight savings.

The final product is wonderfully amusing, and absolutely amazing.
