    Back in October, I purchased a 2008 FJ, 121k miles. As my first car, me and my girlfriend loved this thing. We did a month of research, looking at undercarriages, scan-tooling FJ's for any issues. Thought we found the right one. I had yet to find out that I was wrong about the undercarriage...

    The lower track bar bracket on my 2007 FJ has rusted and the track bar is completely disconnected. Can I buy a bracket somewhere and have it welded or do I need to fork over the money for an entirely new axle housing? any thoughts would be helpful Thanks, TWC500

    So I went to change the oil for the first time since buying my FJ. Long story short, I cannot get the oil plug off the oil pan. I'm not sure if someone tightened it to tight, or it has some rust (the FJ sat for periods of time as it was my dad's, and he used his company work truck 95% of the...

    Hoping to be an FJ owner soon, pandemic is somewhat limiting my options, but there is a 2014 VXR nearby with ~150k km (93k miles) on it. I am a little worried about buying this car, would probably have it inspected by a garage, but was hoping for some input from the experts here before spending...

    Hi! I've been looking and test driving some dealership FJs recently and have been looking at the frames and oil caps on them. Now I'm from Wisconsin where the roads are saltier than a brined chicken, only when looking at my current vehicle (an F150) the frames are so much rustier on the FJs...

    Hey all, Looking at a 2013 FJ to buy. Relatively decent mileage (80k ish). I had a remote inspection completed and this is the view of the undercarriage. It's had one side panel replaced and another with a little body fill, but I think that was from some off roading since there's no accident...

    As the title says I am looking at a 2007 TRD Edition FJ, the under belly has some rust in various spots and it looks like it has found the ground a time or two. My question is can this rust be mitigated to the point where I can get a long life out of this FJ or will it spread like the plague...

    I have seen a few places online that are out of state whom do an intense underbody coating on rust build up. Before I purchased this car it was in Pennsylvania for two years before being brought down and sold at a dealer in Oklahoma. Who do you guys take this amount of rust build up? Is this...
