Re: 13 FJ TT, Pic and N00b questions

Congratulations on your purchase but I wish ya'll would quit posting photos of 2013 FJ TT.
I am trying to remain loyal to my 07 Black Cherry and these post are making it very difficult.

I didn't think of the door clearance issue for the hi lift. I want to get one of those tube adapters for it...maybe that will give me enough clearance to be able to use it.
Open the door as wide as you can (if possible) and then attach the hi-lift right where the door would have been. This way, there's absolutely no risk of damage.

Re: 13 FJ TT, Pic and N00b questions

Congrats and welcome The stock sliders on the TT are very strong and will take a Hi-lift no problem. For sand, I'd advise getting a compressor fitted or a CO2 tank so that you can air the tires right down...and invest in a set of these: MAXTRAX: Vehicle Extraction & Recovery and one of these: Bushranger X-Jack Complete Kit (72X10)

Yea I have a little DC compressor that I was using with my jeep. I wish it was a little faster to air up with but it works. Have a tow strap, tree protector (not that I really need that) and a shackle for the hitch.

That maxtrax thing is cool! I have something somewhat similar but that is really sweet with the pins you can drive into the ground. I might have to grab one of those!

Genius!

That's exactly what I'll do should the need arise. That should work out just fine.
