    Misc. Technical Discussion
    I recently replaced my stock exhaust with a bolt on Rebel Series Stainless Steel Cat-Back Exhaust from aFe. Ever since I replaced it, my check engine and traction control lights came on. I found out the check engine light is on because of the emissions. I figured it might be the O2 sensors...
  2. Traction Control Button Install

    Transmissions / Transfer Cases / Traction Aids
    I have a 2008 FJ with the rear diff locker and A-Trac already installed from the factory.

  8. Next up: vsc mod

    I just un-plugged the vsc wires from under the hood and took a little drive around the block. Scared ****-less would be an understatement. Didn't get 1/4 of the way through the throttle and the tires were well broken loose. Hoping to splice the wire to a switch inside the cab in the near future...
