    Anyone have nicer vehicles but prefer to drive their cruiser, particularly in inclement weather?

    my "fun car" - doesnt get much use in bad weather or locations I think door dings will occur (let them swing their door into the sliders on my 200).

    Now that Apocalypse is on... Where do you take your 200?

    If seriously concerned, purchase a trickle charger/battery tender. I use one on my "fun car" that doesnt get driven all that much and toss it on my FJ40 every so often just to keep it fresh as well.

    Now that Apocalypse is on... Where do you take your 200?

    personally, I'm fresh out of reconstructive knee surgery last week, so I'm considered high risk, even though I'm only 52 and in good health. Hanging around my house, and preparing to "lock-n-load" if it gets any worse. All vehicles are fueled - just in case... Craziness....

    Added some old school decals! Thoughts on placement?

    The HE uses the emblem from a '58-9/73 FJ40. The other one shown is the 9/73 and later.

    Stationary trainer recommendations?

    Greetings - Unfortunately, I destroyed my knee skiing a few weeks ago, and was told an indoor trainer would be allowed as part of my post-op rehab. Typically I ride all year, so haven't really looked at them recently. Any comments/recommendations for a nice direct drive trainer I can mount one...

    Big Fat Tires - 305/65/18s

    I'm sitting on 305-65/18's and the spare does in fact fit in the stock location. Currently BFG KO2's, but will probably go to a Exo Grappler - the BFG's were HORRIBLE on packed snow. @Angelo1 - had Ridge Grapplers on my '17 4Runner and loved them. No issues in heavy rain nor snow.

    200 series picture thread

    Still have the KO2's on her, but yesterday's trip up to Mt Shasta convinced me I'll be changing out to Exo Grapplers or something similar. I *KNOW* the tight "s" curve just before you get to the parking lot is always slick, but NEVER had the Duratrac's on my Raptor nor the Ridge Grapplers I had...

    Builds Trail Tailor- Custom Armor Build plus a few things

    Hey Jason - In the abundant freetime you have - ever consider something similar to a Gobi rack for the 200? Verdict is still out on my FrontRunner, but seriously contemplating selling it off and going back to the Gobi like I had on my T4R. Seems like the only benefit is the slat rails (which...

    My last 2 FJ40's have been FST's just for the tailgate - love the option
