A wiring harness, arrived today but for the past couple of months or so I’ve been purchasing the pieces for a sound system. It’s going to the shop on Saturday for a week for installation. Having a custom box built for the rear floor that’ll actually be made to look like the floor. Will lose the height obviously but will still have useable surface area.

Ordered the genuine hitch from Toyota - cost less to order online from a USA dealership than a Local dealership... ? but never the less, the install when quite well and one could even say without a hitch! ?
This vehicle won’t be hauling too many trailers, but if it needs to, it will be able to. And the assortment of different hitch attachments from bike racks to motorcycle mounts, to extra storage carriers. Always better to have & not need, than need and not have.

We also put a 4 pin hitch powered 3rd brake light in, for now. Going to wire up a 7 pin and brake controller when I get a chance.

What kind of things have ya’ll pulled with your FJ?

A new internal hydraulic clutch slave cylinder, to fix that external squeal, thanks to this forum.
You also need to replace the guts of the clutch while you're in there. Have a look at the state mine was in in that thread.

Did replace clutch and flywheel while I was in there. I have had the truck for about a year, the clutch and flywheel I took out actually look brand new. I was expecting to find horrible things from the year of squealing. The bearing spun very freely, but I've seen worse.

It's a custom build from the good folks over at Ruger Trailers. You guys are helping me spend money so rapidly I figured I better prepare for this.

Yeah, wheels and tires to match the truck. BFG KO2 34x10.5/17r.
I saw the warning and willingly drank the kool-aid, it's delicious. Funny, you posted that, I'm thinking of getting a velcro patch made up with that same image for between the sun visors.

I had to buy 2 Cardone heavy duty CV Axles from rockauto today. Was doing other maintenance today when I noticed the driver side cv is throwing grease everywhere and the passenger side is cracking and will probly leak at any time. They lasted 13 1/2 years so cant complain :)
