    Hi I'm new, about to buy my father in law's 01 4x4, and pretty excited. I've spent the past few days looking around on the site and have a few questions:

    I have leftover parts from the rear of a 07 TRD FJ that I no longer have. They only have about 5k miles on them, can I use them for anything?

    What 3" lift can be done by the weekend warrior?

    Other than synthetic fluids and AFE air filter, what should I do immediately when I take over (it has 65k miles). He just replaced shocks/struts

    Welcome to TW!

    What exactly do you have left from the FJ?

    As far as the lift goes, you will be more limited by your budget than your mechanical skills. Coilovers are generally your best bet, but they are also some of the most expensive setups.

    I always perform all preventative maintenance as soon as I get a hold of a new vehicle - replace all fluids and all filters (including fuel filter), plugs (wires if necessary), PCV valve, clean the throttle body, TPS, MAF, etc...

    I don't think those coils will work, but to be sure, take out a coil from your taco and measure them side-by-side.

    Sell them and get some 5100's.
