Replaced CV Axles with Cardones. Upgraded stock rotors and calipers to larger StopTec Drilled Brake Rotors and Centric Posi Quiet Loaded Calipers. Thank You @NestsahEdition!
I might be wrong but it looks to me like your rotors are installed on the wrong side of the FJ. The hole or slot pattern should slope to the rear of the FJ

These rotors were installed exactly how the diagram said in the box. Also they pre labeled with which side they were supposed to go on.

They seem to work fine to me!

Great weekend in New York. Spent both days detailing my FJ. If I could reach it. I polished it. I really should get a girlfriend ......
So would the girlfriend be so she could do the detailing for you or so you can have another car to detail too..?

Finished up my passenger fender ARB dual comp mount in CAD. Now just need to transfer it to the plasma and do the cutting, bending and install.

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

Changed my gear oils (front & rear differentials, and transfer case) at 54,021 mileage the last of which was at 10,829. Also re-greased my u-joints & propeller shafts.

Took us less than an hour to change gear oils. The Amsoil packaging helps a lot since you no longer have to pump. A little over 5 quarts though was poured, expecting 5.8. Another less than 30 minutes to regrease the 6 nipples and my front UCA. The Metaltech LCA is impossible to put grease on. I forgot to put grease though on the rear UCA. My rear differential has the darkest used oil. Thanks to Neil aka Bonards29.

Removed all my skids (except the rear differential skid) the day prior, which took me longer than changing the oils.

More pics please! I want to do the same bug been very hesitant.
Here you go. This is about 10-15 minutes worth of prep and about an hour of painting (mostly 10 minute breaks between coats). Looking at them now, after driving so the wheels are rotated different than when I painted, there's a few minor blemishes (one of the worst I photographed- it's on the inside anyway), but they're so minor you'd never notice unless you got up close and looked for them. Easy touch up too. I really can't stress enough how easy this was. I'm really pleased with the result. I'll be doing my spare and maybe my grill this weekend.
