  1. Driving FJs in sand

    General Discussion
    Typically 15-20psig is low enough and ok for limited pavement till you can air back up for highway. Anything below 12 psig depending on wheel/tire match-up may be prone to bead break. Non-aggressive tires with 2-4 ply sidewalls are better in sand. 6-8 ply and mud tires do not do well in sand...
  2. Checking out an 07 FJ Cruiser! Anything to look for?

    Newbie Discussions
    Had my 07 TRD since new. Rear carrier bearing was a major expense, rear door/window key lock corroded and broke (still broke). Otherwise brake pads at 125k and one upper ball joint has been it. Over 150K now. You get used to the visibility issues, but the small fuel tank is a pain. Warn...
  3. FJ Cruiser Rusted Frame Owners Unite

    Problems / Dealer Service
    Been a four wheeler for over 45 years. Best thing I found was to clean and convert rust, then apply zinc chromate primer on all welds, joints and bare metals, next apply rustoleum primer, and finally a rubberized undercoating. Never apply the undercoating to bare metal as rust can build up...
  4. Lift Advice

    Suspension / Steering Tech
    I went with the Old Man Emu, 3-4 inch, stiff due to having the heavier warn bumpers & winch. Added new control arms for proper alignment, sway bar extentions, and transfer case alignment bushings. Ride as good as original before warn additions. Running 285/70/16's with no fender trims. They...
  5. Snow chains recommendations

    General Discussion
    No doubt that anyone saying you don't need chains has never diven many mountian trails in the winter. They add a significant safety factor and makes if far easier on hills and deep snow especially after a couple cycles of freeze and thaw. Typically I don't need them, but when you do they can...

  8. Frame Coating and Rust

    I'd Like to Tell Toyota...
    I've had 4x4's since the early 70's and lived on the coast most of that time. I found Zinc Chromate Primer , then rustoleum spray paint, then ruberized spray undercoating, works great on the undercarrage and not had any rust issues when treated. Do not use undercoating without the other...
  9. Winching options?

    4x4 / Off-Road Tech
    http://www.knifeforums.com/forums/showtopic.php?tid/870979/[/IMG] Cheap winch, 2,000# worm gear, add snatch block to increase power. Easily moves from one end to other. Used a come-a-long and high lift for many years and never had to depend on anyone else. Made the winch after issues...
