    Those are the original knobs? I would trash them ASAP because they probably get nice and hot on a hot day.

    at the mercy of truckingco. paid $1100 for enclosed coast to coast so can't complain too loudly

    the FJ does not have factory racks and do know it will fit in my garage with them (tested another). i wonder if i will ever use them or is it just looks? put a few on ebay on watch

    Heck can you get away with it bolted to the skid plate? That is if your going to keep that skid plate awhile. I flat blacked mine so it didn't stand out.

    If you buy it, forget the TRD exhaust. Get a MagnaFlow cat back kit. Much better performance, and sound ;-).

    Oh he bought it waiting for it to arrive had to have it shipped from east to west. By the way OP I mentioned my poor gas mpg. Well I found the fix on fjcruiserforums.com Apparently older models have weak thermostats. I had dropped to 200 miles a tank! Just changed it two days ago I now have 150.9 miles on a half tank!! I picked housing and all up at dealer for 43bucks. Just something to keep your eye on.
