    Re: FJ vs Jeep Grand 3.6 or?

    The FJ Cruiser shares lots of components with the Prado 120 model, sort of a shortened chassis, same suspension and axles. The engine and gearbox are from the Prado 150. Like the Toyota 4Runner,...

    Suspension Re: Toyota D4D Hilux 2013 Suspension upgrade

    Best would be to look at an aftermarket suspension, springs & shocks. Old Man Emu and the likes come to mind.

    Re: FJ Cruiser Pic Thread / Upgrades / Mods

    Generally you can expect to get 8 km/l or better on the open road, and up to 7 km/l in town, provided you don't drive "sporty" ;D That is for a pretty standard FJ Cruiser.

    Even though it's a Landcruiser and the engines are rather reliable, after all you are looking at a 2nd hand turbo diesel with possibly high mileage. Just keep that in mind.

    Re: FJ62 Land Cruiser

    I run 31/10.5R15, a very common tyre size on the 60s. That would translate to 265/75R15 in metric. It's a very common 15" tyre size and easy to find.
    If you want to go 17", try 265/65R17. A lot more...
