    Took it in for the recall yesterday and just found out we're getting five new ones. Guess they saw something they didn't want to risk. Anybody else had theirs replaced?

    I had mine replaced about 2 weeks ago. They only had 4 though, so they owe me a spare when we go in for our next service interval.

    They are replacing these due to a mounting issue, correct? The Dueler HT's on my Tacoma (I think some FJs were also equipped with these) have serious chunking even though they have never been on anything other than gravel and dirt (no rock crawling no spinning, etc). They also look dry rotted in places.

    Was just notified today that my FJ is one of the 9000. I'm crossing my fingers hoping that all five gotta go. Then i'll be driving straight to the tire shop and getting rid of them.
