Hi folks, I just took delivery of a new 2011 FJ Cruiser ten days ago. It was not even in the US yet when I bought it, LOL. Iceberg white. 2WD, no offroad stuff. Love the look and feel, the quality, and the ability to tow small-medium sized stuff.

I already have replaced the door 6x9 speakers using the mod posted at:

http://www.fjcruiserforums.com/foru...08215-how-install-new-6x9-speakers-doors.html

The 6x9 mod works well, but I did find an option on ebay that I think would have fit without having to drill new holes into the metal for the new speaker mounting screws.

Next I replaced the dashboard speakers, adjusted their level, and crossed them over.

Now I have something that sounds reasonable! :clap:

I will be posting pictures and some additional information about the audio upgrade once I figure out the forum and where to post the pics and other info of the 2011 mod.

Next step: disable the "vibrating exciter" so-called speakers (noise makers) in the headliner. For now, faded all the way to front to knock them out.

Loving my new FJ, except the $55 I spent today to fill the gas tank! :mecry: Well, I knew that going into this.

I love the forums here, and I have been reading them for several months before even purchasing my FJ Cruiser.

North Florida. I just posted a very long thread in the audio/electronics forum for my 2011 FJ audio mod. Since I am a flat-lander here in Florida, I won't be adding a bunch of offroad gear, but I do have a few things in mind ... it's all about money.

I work for Toyota at the port. I do not work for Southeast Toyota (SET), but I have an office inside their building at the port.

The vessels are definitely huge as is JaxPort.

Just ordered an Iceberg White FJ yesterday through company. I have to wait awhile for it to get here, but it's worth it.

Congrats on new ride!
