Took it to Discount Tire for balance and rotation. I was getting a bit of a twitch in the steering wheel at the standard speed for this. All is good now.

When I got there, there were two other people already in the parking lot waiting for the store to open. We all moved up to the benches by the door. Then other people showed up and stood right in front of the door thinking that they would be first. When the door was unlocked those that were there before simply pushed them out of the way. Cutting the line was not allowed.
Wait.....you had a wobble/shake and a simple tire balance at a reputable shop solved it!?!

Who would haver thunk……….

After Monday and Tuesday even the calender says WTF

Made SS tank mount brackets, welded them to the truck, mounted the tank, and began plumbing.


SrHamlin,
What did that setup run you? Thinking of doing something similar.

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

Bought One!
2007 FJ Cruiser Silver low mileage 82k miles. PO, took real good care of it, garaged and barely off-road, lightly driven.
I Plan to use it for cruising, camping, fishing, hunting, off road trekking, etc. In and out and around the National Parks from coast to coast over the next few years. The FJ is a blast to drive on the street, can't wait to get on some trails.
Going to do some mods to store gear, etc. Will use the forum for inspiration and advice.
First Trip planned to Zion area in October.

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

I installed an inexpensive backup camera that hangs over the existing mirror. I picked it up on Amazon Prime Days for about $60. It's ok, it will record video and has a front and rear camera. It’s better than not having one but I think it would have been better to purchase a new head unit with front and rear cameras, I just didn't want to spend $300+ on a good one.

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

I drove it to the car wash......to call what I did a wash would be embarrassing. Gonna have to do it right when I get home. Good thing it is sunny and warm here today.
