    Anyone know if the FJ knobs have the same thread size? I'd assume they do but not sure. Might try and pick one up at the local junk yard if I can find one next time

    If you have an auto get an auto FJ shifter, if manual get a manual shifter. Toyota is pretty much as far as I know either M8x1.25 for auto or M10 for manual.

    And as PeeRunner said, auto won't be a direct fit you need to modify the length of the FJ shifter by cutting it down or extending it higher. Stock it won't clear the black gated shifter plastic when you shift.

    Another member PM'ed me for pics on how I got mine to fit....I'm taking pictures tomorrow and will post here at least by this weekend for anyone else interested.

    Awesome, thanks for the info guys, really appreciate it.

    Pictures would be good to see. I don't mind making some modifications to the FJ one to get it to fit.

    John, I love that CF finish on the center console. What did you use to wrap it? Do you have a write-up on the install, by chance?

    Okay this was my method of fitting the FJ shifter without cutting it down to size since I liked my shifter sitting higher.

    Can see the inner plastic piece of the top portion of the shifter and how it inserts into its respective slot in the lower half:
    [​IMG]

    Next is the two pieces apart. You can see the M8x1.25 coupler nut I bought screwed up tight with the M8x1.25 stud I cut to size:
    [​IMG]

    Another shot of the "plug" piece of the upper half and its fitted slot on lower so the upper doesn't just spin freely:
    [​IMG]


    Lastly you can see how I did a little bit of filing of the internal plastic ring inside the lower half to accomodate the M8 coupler nut but still retain a very snug fit:
    [​IMG]

    Overall very simple. But finding a coupler nut might be a pain. I ended up buying off boltdepot.com and then of course just went to fastenal for a M8 threaded rod.

    After hunting a shifter off eBay and then getting the rod and coupler nut, I think it cost me like $40 total? Biggest variable is how much you pay for the shifter.

    Awesome, thanks for putting up those pictures. I like your idea of keeping it higher up, I think I prefer mine to be up like that too. Thanks!

    Yeah being up higher has a better feel in my personal preference, plus the height I have it at sits barely above level with the center console so I can rest my arm and have my hand on the shift knob comfortably too.

    Hey Ben, sorry for the delay in responding.
    This is actually a shot of my recently hydrodipped interior pieces done by a fellow member-----http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/buy-sell-trade-other/245364-rl-hydro-graphix-water-transfer-printing.html

    I went with Shawnaughty designz "silver true weave" over a black base, then gloss clearcoat.
