    Front suspension spacers/levelling kit, do they work with the GX470?

    Thanks for the feed back. Just to clarify did your installer need to modify the bracket for the shock dampening control module? Planning on doing this job soon and wanted to estimate the time needed.

    Any updated double din installs lx450/fj80

    I ran my e brake wire to a toggle switch so i could have full functionality at will. Has anyone come up with a fix for the poor performance of the pioneer display in sunlight? Mine is unreadable with sunglasses on a bright day. Have others had better results with different head units?

    A/C mixer valve?

    The other day I flipped a quick uturn and my A/C stopped blowing cold. I pushed all the buttons and jacked the temperature control a couple times and it started blowing cold again. Ever since then the air sometimes stops blowing cold and some times is ok. This winter I installed a new radio and...

    Lets see those painted wheels

    I made my own stencils just using high quality tape. Cut out the letters with an exacto knife and apply them to the wheel, tape off the border and paint. A trick I learned to keep the paint from seeping under the tape was to apply a light coat of your base color to the graphic first ( in my case...

    2005 GX470 vs 2004 100-Series Landcruiser

    replace air system, Shocks first, lift later

    You could always get the metaltech kit, fj springs and just keep your stock shocks until you decide on a lift. This would fix your current problem and make the actual lift a little easier when you do it.

The Gx did great and atrac works good but the solid locker on the 80 just makes everything so easy in comparison. I think I...
