Re: BigDogKona's 2010 FJ

Nice setup. If you can wait on the gears for awhile, I would. the 2010 model is different and cost a lot more right now. companies are supposedly working on more aftermarket solutions but is going to be awhile. what made you switch over to the LT kit?

The Toytec Ulitmate Kit was great on the street and good for trail riding... but I live a 1/4 mile from open desert and the front end acted like a pogo stick in any height whoops and bottomed out too much. The Long Travel kit was a dream because of the cost, but I finally bit the bullet. I just installed it this week, and so far I can't be any happier with the handling.

Re: BigDogKona's 2010 FJ

Just added my version of GPS:

iPad 2 16GB wifi version (Bluetooth tether to iPhone for data)
Ram Mount to dash
Dual XGPS150
Accuterra app for mapping when out of cell rangeor Everytrail app when in cell range.

Did lots of research on this and finally found a great combination to track my off-road adventures.
