Toyota Dream Build Challenge cars are not the only custom vehicles they are bringing to 2012 SEMA. TRD, the racing and performance arm of Toyota, has also prepared a couple of nice cars themselves. This is one of them, the Baja-themed Toyota FJ-S Cruiser.

The FJ-S is customized to be an ultimate off-roader, worthy of the Baja name. So it gets significant chassis/body structure upgrade as well as suspension modifications and wheel/tire upgrades.

The car features 60-mm Bilstein racing front shocks that provide a 1.3-inch lift, and 50-mm Bilstein racing shocks with remote reservoirs in the rear. It uses 17-inch TRD Midnight Black beadlock-style wheels and BFGoodrich All-Terrain tires. Meanwhile the exterior gets a front nudge bar and rock rails, and the interior gets a two-tone leather seat treatment with FJ-S logos on the seatbacks and custom floor mats.

Power comes from a 4.0-liter V6 boosted with a TRD supercharger to make 345 horsepower and torque peak of 340 lb.-ft.
