    Would one of you fella's be kind enough to snap a picture of the seat belt latch from your FJ. Not the buckle, but the piece that goes into the buckle.

    Picking this bad boy up this weekend. [​IMG]
    It's a 2010 Fj with only 32k on the odo. Clean car fax. It doesn't have much upgraded to it from factory but has fjammer radio and subwoofer also has the back up camera and transducers. First mods up are the head unit and subwoofers. After that what do you all recommend! [​IMG][​IMG]

    Looks like fun! I recommend NOT getting an APPRadio 3. :D However, I also have the Pioneer AVH-X5600BHT and it is awesome with my iphone 5!

    Here is the list of what I did to my wife's FJ and it sounds absoutely amazing and looks stock (minus the deck).

    • Pioneer APPRadio 3 - will be swapping out with a AVH-X5600BHT soon
    • mounting kit, break light bypass, steering wheel kit, etc for radio
    • Alpine MRX-V70 5 channel Amp
    • 2 sets of FOCAL 4" Coaxial Speakers similar to these.
    • 1 set of FOCAL 6.5" Components similar to these
    • 1 8" subwoofer which fits into the stock box with some minor modifications found here.

    If I were to do it all over again. I would put the AVH-X5600 in from the start and I would probably also purchase a PDX-V9 amp instead of the MRX-V70. The V70 is awesome but the 6.5" speakers could use a little more power. I have considered running the 4" speakers all off of deck power and then bridging the 4 channels of the V70 to pump 140 watts to the 6.5's. That would probably achieve the same results for $300 less. :)

    I have an old school 4 channel kicker amp that I can not remember the name of that works quite well right now. I'm wanting to get a alpine pdx 4.600 for the mids and highs and depending on if I get the boxes that have two tens on either wheel pocket of the truck I will get the alpine 1.600. Right now I have two rockford p2s 12s that can get down with my older alpine pdx 1.600. But I'm getting tired of the extra bass and I would like to replace the amp as well.

    I know I want to put an alpine navigation in at some point in time. But I can't swing the nearly 1k for the one I want. I have a kenwood single din that I have in the garage that will work fine until then.

    As for the mids and highs I have no idea on what route to go with them. I will look into the focals!

    Also what is the brake light bypass?
