    Slider Paint Recommendations

    Hi, I ordered a set of Budbuilt sliders when they had their sale, and am looking forward to getting them. I ordered them bare, sanded and prepped for paint, so I need to figure out how to finish them when they arrive. What do people recommend for coatings? Powder coat? Paint? If paint, what...

    Another suspension question - sorry...

    I'm looking for a recommendation, and suspect the answer is probably something like"you should call Cruiser Outfitters or Slee"... In any case - I have a 2013 with a bit over 100K miles and am looking to refresh my original/stock suspension. Most of my driving is on the road, mostly two lane...

    Anyone using a rhino rack with a rooftop tent?

    We picked up a small camper that has rhino rack bars, free spirit rooftop tent and a rhino rack 270 degree awning. It works out great with the family, but there will be times where it might be nice to mount it on the land cruiser and go without the trailer. Does anyone have a similar setup...

    TRD Pro Rims and Wheel Spacers

    I've noticed that a lot of people are running wheel spacers with the older version of the TRD Pro rims. Spidertrax 1.25" seems popular. Is this a necessity for clearance, improved aesthetics, correcting the offset, or something else? I did a search, but I'm not seeing what I'm looking for...

    Mat for rig with no third row seats

    A bunch of us in the US that have removed the third row seats have been looking for a clean solution for a floor mat. We don't have to look any further - now that the heritage edition comes without third row seats, we can get a mat from the dealer that works great. I got my mat from the fedex...

    TRD Rims?

    Hi Tundra folk, I'm straggling in from the land cruiser forum, since a poster there suggested I ask around here. I'm looking for some TRD Pro BBS 18" rims in black for my cruiser. By any chance, have any of you upgraded to bigger rims and have takeoffs you'd be willing to sell? If so, could...

    Best place to get OEM Rims? TPMS question.

    I'm looking to switch out the rims on my 200 for something different. I've never cared for the rims they delivered on the '13 I really like the Tundra/Sequoia TRD Pro BBS rims, but they seem to run close to $2500 with center caps. I'm not sure I like them THAT much. :) My second choice...

    Techstream freeze frame or real time monitoring help?

    Hi, I've been doing a lot of reading on here about people putting the HID projectors in their headlights since @billygoats showed how awesome a light pattern he has. Most of them (seem to) be mods to factory housings with glass lenses. Most of them say to heat the headlight housing at 25-275...

    Updating lighting on 01 cruiser

    I've got an '01 cruiser and I am looking for better lighting, especially low beam. I just tried a set of the Depo headlights from another mud member. They're supposed to be like the '06-07 lights without the need for the filler panel and updated grill. They fit right and look great, but I'm...
