    Hey everyone, hope all is well. I picked up my lovely 2007 FJ last month and have taken it to the trails with some light off-roading. Now I am building up the courage to do my first project which is fix some chips and re do clear coat on the hood. Here is the clear coat area that I am going to...

    As much as I don't want to, it’s time to sell the FJ. My moms in her nineties now. We had to move her in with us a few years back. That made five of us, my wife and I, two teenage kids, and grandma, all in a 1200 sq. foot house. My brother came out to visit and wanted to help financially...

    Howdy ya’ll! I just exited the Subaru Outback world and joined the FJ ranks! Picked up this ‘08 Brick Red manual down in Denver. Has 131,000 miles and is very clean! Whoever owned it previously put a lot of work into it and took very good care. They Rhinolined the roof and bumpers, added a winch...

    Hey! We're close to sealing the deal on a 2007 FJ...but the tires look wimpy ;). We're looking into buying new, bigger (33" tires). Does anyone know if the KO2s (285/70R/17C) will fit in the existing spare tire system? It has a hard spare tire cover.

    Hello, so my search for a new vehicle began when I started struggling to get my tuba out of my 13’ Beetle in tight parking lots. I’m been researching for a while, and I always come back to the FJ Cruiser. Hoping to get some debt paid off before I take on more responsibility, but I’m enjoying...
  9. Maintenance Tech
    Hello all, I have been having trouble with continuous popping noises coming from my axles for the past couple of weeks and I know it's because of the budget Rough Country 3 inch spacer lift I'm currently running on my '07 FJ. I've already had to replace the axles once, and it is looking like...

    First FJ, very excited. Mine doesn't have a roof rack so for my "first trick" I am trying to figure out what to put on it given I carry skis or kayaks (but not at the same time!).

    Hello Folks, I'm new here. I've been happy owner of my 2011 100% OEM FJ for 7 years. I was generally content with the way it ran out of the box given it was my daily driver and I've typically have little time to get out off-roading. 52,000 Miles later, I opened a pandora's box when I...
