Kai - what broke and made the tow truck was neccessary?
Wheel bearing
I had a strange rattle noise at the event and pulled the tire the morning we headed home. I found the caliper pins & springs missing so I used tent pegs to hold it together. My brakes also didn't feel right. I got home and replaced the pins but still had a vibration. I took the FJ to a friends Toyota shop and got it on the lift. Front wheel wobbled when grabbed and wiggled.
He said it was Toyota dealership repair item because he didn't have the Toyota specify tool. I was loaded up to head out across NM/AZ so I had to get home to unload before going to Toyota. On the way home there was a big clunk noise so I called a wrecker to meet me at home & tow it off.
Should have it back today and best part my 100k mile warranty covered it all with 1850 miles left on the warranty.

Thanks for the explanation. I was trying to figure out if it was trail carnage or something since there were pictures of your FJ at the event and then suddenly on the tow truck. I'm sure that was a bit of a hassel, but at least good timing that it was covered under warranty.
