Performance Coil Packs.
    So when I purchased them I was not expecting much... read some of the comments on another form saying how they would not do anything. But I had heard some really good things from a couple of Jeep friends (I know I need new friends haha) so I thought why not try them.

    After putting them in I have definitely noticed an increase in both power and fuel efficiency. I am consistently getting 1-2 MPG over stock and am averaging 17.8 with only about 5 hours of driving so far. I do a lot of city stop and go and was typically in the 15 range. Note that I am also running a Pedal Commander and Toyota's CAI with an AEM dry flow filter.

    As for the power I have definitely noticed smoother acceleration and less gear searching. It feels like I have just that little extra get up and go. It's not huge but I really do notice it.

    I know people have mixed feelings about these but for me it was well worth the upgrade. Hope that helps!

    Aside from the fogs themselves, did you modify their housing, or is it a white reflection I’m seeing above them?

    Got weathertech mats for my rig, I like the deep sidewalls of them over the stock factory. I fly fish a lot and often drive with waders and boots that bring a lot of crud and water into the car :)

    Toyota Tech line got back to me. Try the manual pg 148 (already did that, no change)
    Contact Dealer (Thanks to CV-19 Appt. Only have to drop it off, NO Xportation either) Gonna hold off on that option till. Hopefully they open up more.

    What have I done? WELL,,,

    Was told my order, from a Toyota dealership, cant be purchased and they will be refunding my money on the TRDPro Roof Rack for the 2020 Pro.

    Whos got a 2020 Pro and wants to let me use their vin number? Damnit man! Toyota is being a bit testy about this damn roof rack. Its a bitchin roof rack, but damn, its already been copied on ebay.. So just let us buy it Toyota...

    Who has this Roof Rack from Ebay? Whos selling their Pro Roof Rack?

    Put my new tap and dye set to good use. Removed broken bolt, tapped the threads and cleaned the bolts. Back in business!

    Nice job. I use a small amount of anti-seize lubricant on the Threads, and don’t over tighten the bolts.

    Good to know that I’m not alone; I’ve snapped off two and never over tighten … just cheap metal I guess!
    Where did ya pick up new replacement bolts & size?

    If you have any plans to use the roof for storage, I’d put the money towards a useful rack. The pro rack has a weight limit of like 110lbs and is too awkwardly sized to fit anything worthwhile.

    I have no plans for roof rack other than I love the look. And I’m not a big fan on full size roof racks.

    I only broke one so I will most likely just go to the dealer and replace it there. 4Wheel parts must have snapped two other ones because I have brand new shiny ones on the rear of the plate that weren't there before.:) I also never over tighten. :militarypress: The last one was barely tight when it snapped.

    Easy and cheap to replace all the skid bolts with grade 8. Will save lots of headaches down the road.

    Yes, I believe that's what they used. I might just go to my local hardware store to match them.

    Changed oil/filter/filter housing. No issues, just like 2012 FJ only difference is the plastic trim on front of skid panel to allow it to pivot down for removal/installation. I took skid panel off W/that installed, But removed it for easier reinstall of Skid Panel. I used the screw in filter drain I saved from FJ days W/PVC tube attached.Also switched out the stand pipe from plastic bowl to new Aluminum, taller I guess the lexus uses a shorter filter. Anyone need OEM plastic fiter housing:p? All in all about an hour, put Mastinox on all bolts.That shit NEVER dries up Great stuff!
