    I believe this was the Toyota fix.

    Cool, but that isn't a FJC pictured, perhaps a Tacoma. Gives me hope Toyota might have actually manufactured a stiffener kit.

    Part # anyone???

    My bad, comparing photos, looks to be a 2010 & up FJC.

    You are correct

    That is not an FJ look at the hood and wipers.

    Re: FJ fender bulge repair

    Like the seatbelt recall, I don't think you can just buy the part and install. Looks like a bolt on item though.
    My '08 has a slight bulge on the driver's side. I also have cracks on the passenger fender where my aux battery tray bolts to.
    Very thin metal. If you decide to fix it yourself hope you or someone you know is good at welding this "tin". Otherwise a bolt on reinforcement on the outside may be a good option.

    I know somewhere there's a better photo but hope this helps. Not a bolt on but a spot welded fix. Name:  Newfender.jpg

    Re: FJ fender bulge repair

    The stamped contours of the black "Toyota" stiffener in the photo appear so exact, I think I can cut out the whole inner fenders from both driver & passenger sides of a donor FJ to create patch panels that will lay in on top of my damaged inner fenders to double up the supporting metal thickness. Getting those stiffeners to stack tightly onto my FJ will help bring my tweaked inner fenders real close back to their original alignment.
