Hello All,
It's my first post! Got my FJ in March. I have an 07 manual and was off road for the first time last weekend. Went surf fishing off the NJ shore. I found I definitely needed LL which worked like a charm. Almost like a tractor. I did however go over 5 miles an hour as I now see the manual states not to do. I was probably hanging more around 20. I detected no stress what so ever and rpms never made it over 2000. Is this okay?
Thanks for the help.

Welcome Sally,

LL with the 6MT means your locking the center differential in the transfer case and your in Low Range. I don't think there's any mph limitation to driving in LL. You have 6 speeds and depending on the situation, you may want to be in 2nd, 3rd, or 4th gear while in LL. I have the 5AT and have been in 3rd and 4th gear occasionally with the transfer case in Low range when I needed to speed up over a certain short section of trail but would be crawling again shortly and didn't want to stop and shift the transfer case twice.

I have the MT, I have been in 6th haulin down an arroya. Just don't red line it and you will be fine. Actually it has a rev limiter, so you don't have to worry about it.

It should be fine as long as you don't stress it too much in one gear, shift it to a higher gear to keep the rpm down away from the red line.:bigthumb:

Thank you everyone for your answers and the welcome! What a nice group. I kind of figured I was okay, but I love this vehicle so much I'm being a bit over protective and needed a little reinforcement. I should know better this being my fourth Toyota truck. Thanks again and enjoy your weekend.

The 5 mph refers to shifting the lever. You should stop or be below 5 mph to shift into LL. Once on LL the limit is the red line. Also you should be below 5 mph on LL ON DRY PAVEMENT, but that is a different story.
