I didn't have to do much to it. I'll see if someone on the FJC forums have a how-to. However, all I did is pull out the existing sub, remove the amp that is in the box and then trim the ports that are built into the box until the new sub fit. After doing all of that the new sub fit right in. I used the existing hole for wiring to run my speaker cable to my amp. Overall sounds amazing, not the same as 2 12's but a dramatic improvement.

Here you go..

I just did mine. I just cut off the rubber around the magnet and it fit just fine after doing just a bit of trimming on the back side. Just make sure you find that hidden screw! Its a PIA!

That's the one! I bought that same sub. Cost me like $47 shipped on amazon. Works great with my alpine 5 channel amp.

What's up FJC guys? I was thinking about trading in my Tacoma for an FJ because I want to be prepared when the day comes for my fiance and I to have children. My question to you guys is, does the FJC make for a practical SUV for kids? Upwards of three of them.

4 door Tacoma is probably better. Car seats are hard to get out of the back. Outside of that they are fantastic for kids.

I'd look at a 5th gen 4runner if I needed more room, but still want a bad ass wheeler.

I thought of going the route of a 4 door Tacoma, but the FJ's seem more capable out of the box then the Taco.

When my old lady and I were discussing the move, I threw that out there. She wants a 4Runner down the road so she won't let me get one. Women, go figure.

I think the FJ would be fine. The suicide doors aren't that much of a hassle, plus I'm sure kids would think an FJ is really cool!

I have a 2 year old yard ape... I've had him in a Recaro seat (very large and heavy but safe) since he was about 10 months old. He's a big boy for his age, was 2 Jan 5 but is off the size scale, yet he does fine back there. The FJ can be a bit of a bear to haul them up in to the seat with the suicide doors but it's not impossible and now at 2 he just climbs on in and up like the monkey he is.

Plasti-derped them. I had never used plasti-dip before but figured I'd try it and it's been awesome. Had them dipped for over a year and still look great. The fj has been ran through many auto car washes and are holding up great.
