I'm sure I'm in the minority but I love clean FJs. Even my engine bay is spotless!

Im right there wuth ya.

The oil change guys dont like me because i maje sure the engine bay is as clean when i pulled in. Generally means that they are cleaning finger prints snd and small dribbles.

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

@Bad Wolf @mikey I didn't have them do the engine bay. With a full detail it is only $15 extra but I don't like using a pressure washer in there.

Prefer to use spray cleaner and only water pressure from a hose for cleaning.

That's why no under hood pics

G'Day,
One of our pups puked in the rear seat of Bozo, once.... fortunately it all landed in the top cup holder/ handle grip of the suicide door.
Literally one big glob of dog vomit ...neatly thrown into the cup ( filled the cavity to the brim ).... like she purposely placed it there.... such a good girl.....

Cheers
Baz
Consider yourself lucky. My pups aim too, but they aren't so considerate...

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

Meanwhile in cliffy's world...

I did The 4 runner brake caliper upgrade but they appear to be no less susceptible to freezing up than the FJ originals. Perhaps more susceptible since I just installed these less than a year ago, I believe. So so so so very sad.


The caliper didn't look bad but I started noticing the tell tale brake smell a while back then massive steering wheel jerk today. I actually thought the lugs had loosened or a bearing was out...

No pics of the offending caliper since my amazing wife took it from me, jumped into her trusty Corolla and made the trip to town for me...
