I'm a newbie on the Forum. Obviously a lot of you guys have been on here awhile, and a bunch of you have your FJ's already. So I'm expecting flak from the oldtimers, but I'm also hoping you can answer this stuff or tell me if it's already been answered . (I've ordered a Blue AT 4x4 with the rack, rails, tow pkg etc at MSRP, but it's in japan till mid May.)

1. Has anybody got a copy of the Owners Manual us poor slobs can download while we're chompin at the bit waitin on our vehicles?

2. Can I leave the back window open all day while I'm driving onroad without damaging it?

3. Is anybody driving with the factory Roof Dam/Lights yet, and do they like the setup? (It looks like TRD and TPO have these but my Dealer doesn't.)

4. Has anybody come up with a better way to mount a front license plate? (No way am I puttin friggin screws in my bumper even if I replace it later.)

5. Can I shift my AT myself for higher RPM when taking off without hurting it?

6. Is anyone looking at the feasibility of turning a roof section into a removeable / stowable panel? (I know it will compromise safety, warranty, speakers, yada yada but I want open air flow with no dam glass up there.)

7. Is anybody making FJ vehicle covers yet (sacrilege!)?

8. Anybody know of a relatively cheap rear camera setup (sacrilege again!)?

9. Anybody tried out the ARB winch setup yet?

Muchas Gracias, I know that's a LOT of questions but I'm trying to catch up. Thank Gawd a vehicle this badazz actually got built.

Later;
Brian

4. no idea

5. why are you asking, mildly put, weird questions?

Air / Mike;
It's gotta be even more frustrating to be a "SENIOR MEMBER" and not have you're FJ yet. At least us newbies must keep you veterans entertained. GREATLY appreciate the Manual, gotta go read it NOW!
UDAMAN!

2. Yes. shouldn't hurt it. Haven't tried it though.
3. Don't know if they are even avail. yet
4. Why not mount them with screws like all other front bumper mounted plates. Why care about the screw holes if you're gonna eventually replace the bumper anyhow?
5. Yes. shouldn't hurt it unless you rev WAY TO HIGH.
6. Doubt it. YOu'd be the 1st. let us know how it works out. Post pics.
7. Any cover for a similar size vehicle will do.
8. Google it. "cheap back up camara"
9. Not avail yet. I'd wait to hear the pro's and cons.

You luck [email protected] Enjoy your FJ thoroughly before cutting into the roof!

Your Airness;
After srutinizing your photos it's obvious that I didn't fully appreciate the massive agony that I'll go through as I wait weeks for my beloved FJ to arrive (currently at 8 days, 12hrs, 47min). However, at the risk of offending your honor further, I must say those pics are FRIGGIN HILARIOUS DUDE!
