very cool, its great how the fj has so many options for people to choose from
My friend has them installed on his 4-runner. They do look nice and strong. Toytec is in the process of having them made for the FJ. The only ones he has fit the older 4-runners.Yeah I saw those last week when I went over to get my lift on his 4 Runner, showing them to me as if I could afford it
What I am interested in are the LCA guards, especially after watching Eric bash the other one this weekend at China Wall.
Looks like that spare you sent with me is going to come in handy for him.
From the looks of your avatar you made the right choice in buying the ICON's (witch Toytec also sells). The ICON's have more oil capacity so they don't heat up has faster during high speed baja style off-roading. The valving will also be more fine tuned, but will require rebuilding to maintain their high level of quality. Toytecs are better suited for rock crawling and occasional baja style of driving.how do these compare to the ICON coilovers from Demello? I just put mine on this week and the rig rides better than stock. a lot less body sway.
NOAre the Billstein shocks the same ones that come with the off road package?
This is very interesting! I know that I want to level out my rig so that it will still fit in the garage. Plus, according to what you are saying, it will handle the weight of a winch and an ARB bumper. Some things that I want to get in the future. I will be very interested in hearing how they hold up before, during, and after the trip is over. Please keep us informed. Thanks!
I ran Steelbender and Metal Masher. The new gears are holding up so far. I now need a new rear bumper though.I might be interested in something like these, that extra clearance would make things easier on the trail. Don, what was the set-up you had before this was put on? What trails are you/did you test them out on in Moab? Thanks for any feedback on these you can provide. BTW how is that new 3rd member holding up? Good way to break it in by going back to Moab.
The price of these verses buying a beefier set of LCA's is what makes them ao attractive, I can't wait. There was a 4-runner there too with them on when I was there.My friend has them installed on his 4-runner. They do look nice and strong. Toytec is in the process of having them made for the FJ.

I never did ask what the price of these were. His last fab guy was taking a long time so Doug has a new guy working on them for the FJ. Hopefully he will have them soon. IMO the lower control arms and the bracket that mounts them to the frame are a major week spot on the FJ. I have the All-Pro heavy duty LCA's that have taken a beating. I also had All Phase Offroad plate over the stock mounting brackets. Best money spent.The price of these verses buying a beefier set of LCA's is what makes them ao attractive, I can't wait.
