OOOOWWWUh. That hurts just reading about it.

What doesn't kill me makes me more cynical.

Surprisingly the pain was pretty minimal, probably would have been worse if a bone had been crushed.

The skin graft hurt more.

After Monday and Tuesday even the calender says WTF

Removed the OEM rock sliders, and bed lined the new (to me) All Pro Rock Sliders. Next, I need to chase the threads before I finish the install!

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

For the past few days the drawers and tool kit have been sliding about in the back. Yesterday I was supposed to do something about that but I had a case of the sleepies after work. So why not do today what I was supposed to have done yesterday?


First I pulled the box out of the way and unbolted the tie downs. Then I looked in the box of misfit bolts and found nothing that would be a direct replacement. The original bolts are a bit too short.


Wow, sorry. That’s a bad pic! Wuf.


I found two bolts and some nut-serts that would do nicely.


That meant I got to ream out the threaded holes so the new threads would fit. My advice: use a sharp bit.


With the holes the right size the inserts will fit very snug. That’s what you want - a snug fit.


Datsa sharp bit!


Then load up the nut setting tool and set away! My complaint about this tool is that it doesn’t make a satisfying clunk and ping like a pop riveter.


The nut is set.


I might go back sometime and countersink the heads. There are other things that are more glaring about this box than the heads being proud....


Wait! I was wrong. The FIRST thing I did was draw on a nut and place it on the top of the bolts for the original tie downs. That transferred the ink onto the box so I would know where to drill for the mounting hardware. Well, technically the first thing I did was open a Dallas Blonde ale.


Now it’s all fairly secure back there. I’m running down some Velcro sheets big enough to cover the top. Plus, I remembered to take out the factory jack stuff before I bolted the drawers down. Now the gf is muttering something about making her one for her Chrysler Heep.

What did you do TO your FJ Cruiser TODAY?



I forgot to mention that it wasn’t until I got everything cinched down that I thought about checking the clearance..... not too bad for eyeballing and lucky! I’ve got about 1/8” of an inch at the closest. As you are looking at the plywood, the back door is on the left side.

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

Installed a Wrangler light bar on top of my Demello winch bumper with 2 tow hooks - tomorrow I bolt 3 HID lights on the new bar, just below the hood and in front of the grill - relays and switches already in. Also put a switch in to kill my DRL's for hog hunting. Installed a 12vdc to 5vdc step down to power my Magellan handheld GPS mounted in quick release by corner post - no more battery worries. Added two 1.5" wheel spacers to the spare tire mount - pushes the 33" spare out enough to clear bumper AND let me use the rear window.

I replaced the black driver side cowl vent or whatever that thing is called that keeps the leaves out. Not a big deal but it sure looks better than having a missing one.
