I am about to go to Moab (15+ hour drive) and was thinking of installing a cruise controll on my FJ60. I am looking at the audiovox ones.  oes anyone have any advice or anything that worked for them?
Has anyone installed a CC unit on a 40? I have a 99 vortec V8 out of a chevy so I would think most units should work ok? although I will be running a manual tranny. It would be nice to pop on while on the freeway in 5th though. I saw a few units at JCwhitney (see below). Anyone?
I installed the Audiovox CCS-100 on my FJ-40 (Chevy 350 powered with SM-465) and it works fantastic. I drove it to Moab and back (round trip of 2000 miles) and it was a blessing. The good part was that I took the tach signal off of my distributor so I did not have to install any magnets to the drivetrain.
The set speed holds very, very constant....I cannot see it deviate by 1 mph. The only installation problem was in making sure that the switches (about 7 of them) were in the correct position. If you have an installation manual, I ended up with Switches 1, 2, and 7 "On" and the others "Off". Their technical help waded me through this trial and error effort.
I also installed a similar unit on a friend's CJ-7.......the switch settings were the same as mine and it works perfectly as well. I did modify the mounting bracket for the amplifier to make it more "4-Wheeling" friendly.
I did not get any E-Mail from you. Anyway, my distributor (pointless ignition system) has a terminal that is for an electronic tachometer. I have a tach, so I just tied the appropriate cruise control wire into the wire to my tach. The cruise control wires that would go to the magnet on the driveshaft were just isolated and taped off.
I know this was quite a while ago, but I was wondering if you could talk about the switches you used for this. I want to install a cuise unit on my HJ60, which is a 24volt diesel and cant find much info on it...
