Want traction control on your new FJ Cruiser?

Not sure if this is true or not but someone should check it this article that my friend found:

THIS WILL ONLY WORK IF YOU HAVE A 4 WHEEL DRIVE WITH E-LOCKER IN THE REAR.

Want traction control on your new FJ Cruiser? This is what you need. Toyota charged $2600 for this as Upgrade package. You have all of the mechanisms and harness in your vehicle for the traction control except the switch. All FJ Cruisers came down the same line, if they had the upgrade package, they installed this switch and it gives them traction control. This switch is easy and simple to install. Simply remove the cover and the wiring is there. This is a must have for any of us without traction control. This allows the driver to turn on traction control which tells the vehicle to brake the wheels that are spinning and send torque to those that are not.

Re: Want traction control on your new FJ Cruiser?

Well the ATRAC hack and the switch install are 2 different things. I have a late 07 model where both work together but I wish I would of known that ATRAC was already installed in the 4wd /w locker and the extra 2 g's went to plug in a 50 dollar button. I got gotten.
