    Cruiser Brothers WAT valve body?

    @orangefj45 Did the 200 notice any improvement in MPG? How was it modded (gears/tires/weight)? My 2013 is heavily armored on 285/75R17s (33-34”) with stock gears and gets 12-13 mpg. I have a set of time 4.88s that will be going in soon, that will give it close to the same effective ratio as...

    Low RPM transmission stutter - towing

    Towed a uhaul 12x6 uhaul trailer loaded with about 1750 pounds of cargo. Ran from Dallas to Springfield MO. About 400 Miles. Truck ran fine and I used ETC Power for the tow to tighten up the TC. I noticed in the latter part of the trip that if I gave it the throttle it needed for a quick climb...

    Reverse camera switch splice???

    Hi all, has anyone tried finding a wire to splice into to have the reverse camera on with a switch on the dash (or center console) in addition to when the gear selector is in reverse? I'd be OK with the reverse lights coming in as well when I switch it on. This function would be for off roading...

    100 series rear bumper rated for towing?

    I am looking for an off-road rear bumper that can tow up to the 100's towing capacity of 6500 lbs. I presently have a Slee rear bumper with swingouts. It has a receiver on it, but Slee does not rate it, therefore no idea of what it is capable of towing. Does anyone know of anything available to...

    Flat Towing an '07 Auto FJ Cruiser 4x4

    I've got an '07 automatic tranny, and am looking at what it takes to flat tow it behind a C class. Looks like it can be done, and all I should have to do it disconnect the rear-drive shaft while leaving the tranny in park, and the transfer case in "H". However, it looks like I still need a lot...

    Towing an FJ40 w TH-350 Automatic?

    Alright forum experts. I have a 76 FJ40 land cruiser that I need to deliver 1,000 miles away. I trailered it on a uhaul trailer 500 miles with my wife's Honda Pilot a few months ago. Mainly because i didn't think it would make it on its own. I was in a bind and just did it. That seemed to...

    My 08 LC only appears to have the towing package, but things are not adding up.

    I installed a brake controller and a 7 pin (hopkins) female for the purpose of towing an airstream. It's all hooked up, but not communicating with the trailer, confirmed with test light/om meter. My 08 has the hitch, and female wiring adapters for the 7 pin harness, but is it possible it's not...

    Air Bag Helpers

    So we finally picked up the trailer we've thought about for 3 or 4 years. Even though it weighs a little less than 2300 lbs I think once I load it the 80 will be sitting low in the back. I am wondering if adding air bag help in the coil will reduce the capability of the cruiser off road. Don't...

    Towing a 2006 LC: What are my options?

    From everything I have read, the LC cannot be flat-towed so I have to trailer it. Anyone else towed their LC without a trailer? Can you disconnect the rear drive shaft and tow it using a dolly? I am looking to take my LC with me on a Colorado trip in May with my truck and truck camper. I have a...

    Towing: FJ80 with supercharger vs FJ100

    So has anyone had the experience of towing a decent size enclosed trailer with and FJ80 vs a FJ100? I'm considering the supercharger option for the 80, to tow a 7x16ft enclosed trailer, but for the cost and limited supply seems like selling it and getting a 100 w/4.7 would be about the same...
