* UPDATE * Guess what just arrived at my door. I feel like a kid at Christmas, that didn't get underwear or socks! I am calling now to get it installed, ASAP.
NiceThere are a few inches to play in any direction. It is mounted above the bottom of the frame and sits above the driveline. Those were my two concerns. On my way to the grocery store yesterday I was at a traffic light and was flagged down by another FJ owner. He was next to me at the light. I pulled in to HEB parking lot and asked me where I got my rock rails. I opened the door and laughed when I saw the look on this face. We talked for a few minutes. Low and behold another FJ owner pulled up just to say hello. He then got in the conversation about the steps. They both wanted to buy a set and met me at my home last night. The steps do make it easier to enter/exit the FJ. It also is much better footing compared to the slick rock rails I had.
Here is another video: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ru45o5ktmkjf6a9/IMG_0340.mov?dl=0 The motor/reservoir can be mounted and adapted to be placed in different locations. Also, the steps can be adjusted to sit closer to the FJ. These are preference type things.Nice
Can you maybe get a close up shot of the motor/gearbox and how it's mounted?
What's your final number for a set shipped in CONUS?
I am installing a dual switch for my rock lights. When it is set to auto, the lights will come on when steps are deployed. The on switch will turn lights on regardless of steps.If I pick up a kit, I want to add a double switch like this one to allow me to select whether or not each running board is active. One for passenger and one for driver. Fits Toyota switch cutouts. Could put it in the center console (only have one open slot) or behind the turn signal beside the RSCA button.
I may not want it going up and down if I'm offroading, and my wife who is fairly short will get a lot more use out of it.
I figure the easiest method would be to use it to interrupt the door switch circuit.
