Thanks Tim! I think so also. Could not really go bigger without a ton of work and not really sure I need to or would want to either. I am getting 21 mpg on the highway, been driving it on the highway all week. Sliders showed up yesterday, they feel heavy, probably will bring it down to 20 mpg...

Wow - you must have really given them a convincing story for that speedy service. Do you have to sport a 6' Shrockworks sticker on your truck for the next 2 years?

Nice to see the Runner gettin' dirty. How did she wheel compared to the FJC?

I told Mark that I was a friend of Matt Ralston and that was all he needed to here!

It wheeled great, in spite of the driver....

A-trac kicks in great, so that was a relief. Clearence was great and actually seemed a bit less tippy then the FJC.. Have not investigated but has to have a slightly longer wheel base. Lifted and with aftermarket rack, it also fits into the garage.

Really nice to have windows, leather, sun roof, more space....I loved my FJC but it is easy to upgrade to a 4th gen and such a nicer vehicle. I will just wheel open for a while..

I am getting 21 mpg right now with the bigger tires also! With fridge and rack on top, so that is a major plus...

I know there is no perfect rig but this is pretty close to spot on for me!
