Toyota FJ Cruiser Questions

  • The Karrier ST205/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire, # AM10244, will fit on a 15x5.5 inch wheel. It has a maximum load rating of 1,820 lbs. at 50 psi and an overall diameter of 27.3 inches. The overall width is 8.1 inches. I would not recommend installing the Karrier ST225/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire, # AM10256, on a rim width of 5.5 inches. The minimum rim width for that size tire is 6 inches. If you try to squeeze that size tire on a narrower wheel than what is recommended, it will...

  • If the trailer you are planning on towing does not have electric brakes and you simply need to provide a lighting connection for the trailer, you can very easily convert your existing 4-pole to a 7-way by using a 4 to 7-Way Adapter, part # 37185. If the trailer has electric brakes, you will need a brake controller to actuate them. I would recommend the Tekonsha P2, part # 90885. The P2 is very user friendly and the initial set up is simple. You will need the Brake Controller...

  • You would choose a side wind or top wind jack based on several factors. Each has its advantages. If clearance is an issue for the radius of a top wind, then you would choose a side wind. The opposite is also true. It is my experience that a side winding jack is easier to turn. However, if the tongue is low to the ground a top wind would be a better option because you would not have to bend down as much and it would not be as awkward to turn. A side winding jack normally has...

  • First, as long as the gross trailer weight and hitch weight are within the capacities of your 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser then it will be fine. Check your vehicle owners manual to make sure it is compatible with weight distribution. I know that many trailer dealerships will sell and install some . . . lesser quality weight distribution systems. They work but they do not work as well as other systems. So to at least take a look at your options I can go over some different models...

  • I believe I have a solution for you but most likely the 32x48 Pro Series Solo Steel Cargo Carrier # PS1040100 that you referenced would interfere with your door opening due to the 4 inches of rise the shank has. You should check out the Rola Hitch Cargo Carrier # 59502. We have a number of FJ Cruiser owners who have used this cargo carrier without any interference with the back door. I attached a couple pictures of this carrier being used on FJ Cruisers for you to check out...

  • For your 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser you can use any of three types of universal-fit towing mirror that can be seen on the link provided. These come in several types: clip-on, door-mount and fender-mount. These are not vehicle-specific but rather are designed to fit the broadest possible range of vehicles. A good cost-effective option is the CIPA Clip-On Towing Mirror # 7070. This is sold as a single unit, so you will need two to equip both driver- and passenger-side mirrors on...

  • The Titan Flexible Brake Line Tubing Clip # T0776400 installs to your trailer's frame along with a mating bracket, part # T0776300. Bracket part # T0776300 bolts on to your trailer frame (hardware not supplied) and the clip portion then attaches to the bracket and holds the end of the brake line fitting.

  • We offer three different trailer hitch receivers for your 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser (so long as it does not have the auxiliary fuel tank option), the Hidden Hitch # 87412, the DrawTite # 75461 and the Curt # 13367. All three offer the same 2-inch receiver opening, 500-lb tongue weight rating and 5000-lb tow rating. All three install without drilling or welding required. I have included a link to the hitch page for your FJ Cruiser where you can see all three products. Installation...

  • That is a tough one, I can usually come up with some sort of recommendation but this one has me stumped. Any spare tire bike rack, see link, is going to use the same mounting location as your backup camera is using and any hitch mounted bike rack is going to block the view of the camera. The only way I can see that bikes could be carried with your 2010 Toyota FJ Cruiser would be to use a Front Mount Trailer Hitch, item # 31367, and a bike rack like the Swagman XC2 Wheel Mount...

  • There's no mention of having to remove any skid plates to install the Curt hitch part # 13367 on your 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser so the best recommendation I can make for you since it sounds like the skid plate you have isn't standard equipment is to check out the install video and pictures I attached and compare them to your skid plate to see if you would have to remove it.

  • What you will need is the 4 and 7 Way Installation Kit, # ETBC7. This kit comes with everything you will need to add a 7-Way and 4-Way trailer connector to your 2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser. It also provides some parts for a brake controller. If you have a trailer that requires a 7-Way connector, it probably has electric brakes and you may want to consider a brake controller. I have included a link to an FAQ article and a link to a video that explains the installation of an ETBC7...

  • The wheels we offer from Americana (like the wheel used on the # AM3S339 you mentioned) and HWT all have a zero offset, unless stated otherwise in the product description. A zero offset wheel would have the wheel mounting pad centered on the width of the rim. A positive offset moves the tire closer to the trailer, a negative offset moves the tire away from the trailer. I have linked you to a help article that has more information about trailer tires.

  • In order to add brakes to an axle that does not have brakes you will need a few things. I have attached a helpful article that explains what is needed to add electric brakes to an axle you can check out. The first thing we need to know is the weight capacity of your axle. This can normally be found on a plate or a sticker on the axle. If you do not have a brake mounting flange on the spindles, those will have to be welded to the spindles. This should be done by a professional...

  • Anytime the trailer weight is at least 50 percent of the vehicle weight OR if the vehicle sags at the back with the trailer connected, you would benefit from a weight distribution system. To determine the correct system for your application you will need to know the total tongue weight. The total tongue weight can be calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, loaded and ready to tow, then add to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow...

  • From my research I found that the rear door on an FJ Cruiser opens with the hinge on the driver side of the vehicle. I recommend The SportRack Ridge Swing Bike Rack, part # SR2415. This bike carrier swings away from the rear of the vehicle allowing you room for full access to the back of your Cruiser. It has a weight capacity of 140 lbs. To help deter theft of the bike carrier or the bikes I recommend part # A32022. This includes both a hitch lock and a cable lock and is keyed-alike....

  • If the backup camera is mounted anywhere on the spare tire or spare tire carrier of your 2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser the Thule Spare Me, # TH963PRO, will not fit. Otherwise it is listed as a fit. If your FJ Cruiser does have a back up camera that is mounted right in the center of the spare then I recommend using Hollywood Racks spare tire mount bike rack # HRSR1 instead. But you will have to remove the plastic cover from the spare tire for it to fit. I have linked video reviews...

  • Yes, indeed! We can help you select a 2-inch hitch-mount bike rack for use on your 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser with rear-mounted spare tire. We offer a range of 4-bike hitch racks that will fit the 2-inch Class III hitch on your FJ. First, you will want to take one simple measurement of the vehicle. Measure from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rear-most part of the vehicle; in your case this will likely be the spare tire cover. The linked article illustrates how to take...

  • If you are okay with not using the back up camera while carrying bikes I recommend going with the Hollywood Racks SR1 2-Bike Carrier - Spare Tire Mount, part # HRSR1, which you reference. You will have to remove the plastic cover from the spare tire for it to fit. Since you plan on carrying a womens bikes, I recommend picking up the Bike Frame Adapter Bar, # HRBA-PRO. Bikes with small or angled frames can be difficult to load on a bike rack and cause ground clearance issues....

  • Adding suspension enhancement like Timbrens will help with sag and increase stability and ride quality. If your 2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser is a 4-wheel drive model, for the front you can use # TTOFTAC4A that you have referenced. There is no option for the front if it is a 2-wheel drive model. For the rear if it is 2- or 4-wheel drive use # TTORSEQ. I have included links to the instructions for both sets for you to view. I have also included a link to our FAQ article on Timbren...

  • The Hollywood Racks SR1 2-Bike Carrier # HRSR1 should work just fine on your 2013 FJ Cruiser with a backup camera. It will fit around the wheel and would not interfere with the camera aside from its view being mostly blocked by your bikes. On an FJ forum there was a guy who removed the camera and mounted it to the bike rack frame so that the camera would be use-able with bikes loaded. Also, I do not recommend you have your bikes loaded on the rack while you open and close...
