    I bought my '88FJ62 about five years ago. As long as I've owned it the area around the hand brake gets really hot so hot in the summer you can hardly touch that hand brake. I really don't mind it much in the winter. Is this normal? I was wondering if maybe the exhaust was routed wrong. it really makes the AC work overtime. Thanks
