Finally, after nearly 15 years with XM Radio (on the FJ since new in 2007), I got tired of all the useless yapping and incessant self-promotions and canceled the service (I thought the whole idea of paying for radio was for them to STFU!). Installed the VaisTech SoundLinq in the FJ today. Rocking with Spotify now. Happiness once again.
I usually listen to podcasts or spotify. I have a USB drive with a bunch of music on it permanently in the stereo too. I don't think I've even tuned my radio since I replaced the battery a few months ago.

The only thing I miss about XM is BBC Radio, otherwise the service is now trash. It used to be great back in the day before that moron Karmazin ruined it before stepping down. It has never recovered after that as far as I am concerned. Oh well, nothing lasts forever.

Back on topic, changed the oil and filter on the FJ in preparation for a long trip.

You値l be here soon! And this time it値l be hot - got up to 102deg yesterday....but by sunset was delightful temp. This morning I知 taking my nephew Chris (Olympic Luge medalist) and his girlfriend up to TOTW to camp, then run trails like Hells Revenge, Fins, Long Canyon on Tuesday. Chris has to leave then and is VERY sad he won稚 be seeing the Mb4S group again this year - his experience with the FJ community is one of the reasons he wants to get and build a 4R. I値l be sure and get some good rear bumper poser shots on the overhang rock at TOTW

Re: What did you do TO your FJ Cruiser TODAY?

I forgot who here figured this one out, but it works great, thanks whoever you are! Replaced the airbag indicator light next to the radio with a dual USB / voltmeter socket. No drilling or cutting required. I'm not a fan of cords dangling everywhere, so with a 1 foot charging cable for my phone sitting in a ProClip mount, it's a perfect fit and out of the way. And the orange voltmeter display matches pretty well too.

Re: What did you do TO your FJ Cruiser TODAY?

Picked up a set of 5 steelies with beat stock-sized tires. Just threw them on to see what they looked like and imagine maybe getting some 285/75/17s.

They will come back off this weekend as the old worn tires SUCK. My 295/75/16s on alloys somehow feel lighter while driving. Definitely not while stacking them in a pile though lol

Whoknows...probably just sell them someday
