*** Power steps ***

After exhaustive searching for a company in the US selling power steps specifically designed for my FJ, I had given up. On a recent business trip to Australia I saw a company selling and installing them. I called and they said they don't ship to the US. They did finally tell me they would ship one for 2.5k US. Exchange rate = 3650 for power steps? No thanks. Another business manager I was in meetings with is from Quezon City and we started talking about this, he has a Tacoma. He knew a contact and so he called him. Come to find out that the distributor is in Quezon and I now have a direct connect to the manufacturer. Some of my friends here in Texas want them so I ended up ordering 20 sets. I will have 9 left over if anyone is interested. I can get a set shipped anywhere in the US for a total cost of less than 1K.

As soon as mine arrive, I will post pictures and videos. I have Amp Research power steps on my Ram 3/4 and 1 ton trucks at the ranch and the brackets look almost identical. I don't rock crawl, but I go through brush and mud daily. Power steps haven't had any issues so far. Not doing this for profit. Just trying to help out FJ owners in the same boat.

Re: *** Power steps ***

The 4-Runner comes with Power Steps, I wonder if they would bolt right on to an FJ?

Re: *** Power steps ***

I thought the exact same thing seeing the 120 Prado, Tacoma, 4 Runner, and FJ use many of the same suspension components. The wheelbase is different, but is based on the same chassis. The FJ is 105.9 in wheelbase. Second generation Tacoma (2004 - 2015) wheelbase 109.4 to 140.9 depending what cab is selected. The 4 Runner has the same wheelbase as a second gen single cab Tacoma. The chassis mount locations would have to be modified and end caps of the steps as well. Modification costs and voided warranty made me turn away. When you factor in this cost in addition to the cost of the power steps. it doesn't make sense to do it this way.

I think I exhausted all avenues, but always willing to listen for alternatives. Thanks for the suggestion!
