Re: First month and 3,000 miles in my 2007 FJ
Quick update, been 6 months since I traded the Landrover lr3 in for the FJ cruiser. I have put a little over 10,000 miles on it since then. And still loving it!!!
But still having a few missing things. I really miss the stereo from the LR3, the stock FJ radio really well... Sucks
I was looking at adding the sub woofer option, but have been advised against it. A few people suggested the kenwood deck, but what are your guys opinions, I like the look of the stock radio and the 6cd changer is cool, but the sound is no Bueno .
I also missed the roar of the LR3's jaguar v8, so I did get the BAD ASS muffler from Keith at Dirty Deeds and have been very very unhappy with it, Keith said he would make it right but it's been 2 months and I am still waiting. Any opinions? Borla? TRD? Magnaflow? I drove an FJ with a Magnaflow and loved the sound, Keith said his would be better, but the drone has been so bad I can't drive it on the freeway any longer.
Also the seats, not super great for long trips, I have seen people mention they get the seats out of the gx460 and swap them in but that's a 2,000 $$ deal. I have also heard the 4Runner seats are a good replacement. Anyone have any first hand experience with this???
The pluses!! I don't have any more check engine lights, no drooping suspension, tons of fun to drive, and I got to scare my son by actually jumping it!!!! So much fun to get air in the truck!!! Anyone know how to turn off the traction control beeping when you are in the air??
Still looking for some parts for this to get it really dialed in, so if anyone wants to check my want to buy ad, I would appreciate any leads.
Have a great day!!!
