Re: Doug DeMuro finally reviews the FJ

I hadn't thought about the extended reach.

What doesn't kill me makes me more cynical.

Re: Doug DeMuro finally reviews the FJ

I thought it was a pretty good review and he highlighted things that I never noticed about my FJ before.

2015 Camry SE
2012 Porsche Cayenne
2008 FJ Cruiser
2003 Camry LE (RIP)
2000 Mazda Miata
1997 Camao Z28 383ci supercharged

Not bad! I was thinking about using a billiard ball or something similar.
Definitely the way to go. They’re available on Amazon

I think this is the right one: https://www.amazon.com/White-Transfe...gateway&sr=8-3

Re: Doug DeMuro finally reviews the FJ

Well I don't expect our critique to make much sense because we all own at least one and are kind of like a cult of sorts, and quite biased. Normal people may not "get" the FJ and that's fine with me. Oh, TexasFJ, I kind of agree with you about the shifter, except it always reminded me of an early LED flashlight. I think the reviewer doesn't really understand the basis of the original 40, and his lack of correct history shows this. Grain of salt taken.

Re: Doug DeMuro finally reviews the FJ

I liked the review. It is quirky, so am I !
I did notice something in the video that is bugging me about mine. The rear door catch (bottom) is rusting. Both of mine are also. Booo Toyota.Doug DeMuro finally reviews the FJ-screen-shot-2019-08-14-1.48.15-pm.png

Just last week I was vacuuming the Moab B4 Summit/FJ Summit dust out of the FJ, and I noticed mine is rusting on the drivers side. Trying to figure out what to do about it... would just hit it with Fluid Film but that would be messy. Maybe I'll paint it with Rust Reformer and top coat, can't look any worse.

Have 'em bead blasted and powder coated?
