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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • To convert the 4-way connector to a 7-way on your 2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser, you could just install the item you selected, Adapter 4 Pole to 7 Pole, part # 37185, and just connect the 4-way, the Black power wire and White ground wire of part # 37185. Since the Tekonsha Prodigy RF Brake Controller, part # 90250, is wireless, it only needs the Black wire, which is a 12 volt power supply. The light functions of the trailer will be connected through your existing 4-way which will plug...

  • 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...

  • 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.

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...

  • We have installed the Hidden Hitch Class III trailer hitch # 87412 on a 2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser, see video link, and found that the distance needed to clear the rear part of the spare tire carrier is 8 inches. Measure from the center of the hitch pin hole straight back to the distance required to clear the spare on your vehicle to confirm. The Thule Vertex swinging rack, # TH9031XT, measures 14 inches from hitch pin hole to the back of the upright arm so it should clear the...

  • The Fire Dancer Portable Patio Fire Pit, part # FD500 is designed to work with a propane source like a 20 lb portable tank. There is an in-line regulator with this fire pit that makes sure a safe pressure level is maintained when using the fire pit, so if you have a propane source like a bottle this should work well for you.This fire pit measures 14 inches diameter and includes a 10 ft hose assembly. I have attached a product review video for this fire pit you can check out. If...

The Thule Apex Swing 4 Bike Carrier # TH9027 has a distance of 10-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of arms of the rack so it should have plenty of clearance and work very well for you. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out also. If you plan on carrying any womens or...

  • The CIPA Deluxe Door Mount Mirror (Qty. 1), # 11650 installs easily and fits most vehicles, and should be a good fit for your 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser. I have included a link to a video review featuring this mirror below. I have tested this mirror along with several of the other universal towing mirrors that we carry and have found that the door mount mirrors offer the best, most stable, view when driving at highway speeds. Since there are no custom fit towing mirrors available...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • I believe I have a swing away 4 bike rack that will work on your 2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser, but the Thule Apex Swing 4 Bike Carrier # TH9027 that you referenced will not have enough clearance to clear your spare tire. We have an FJ Cruiser in our parking lot that has a distance of 8-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin out to the furthest part of the spare tire. Since the # TH9027 has a distance of 7-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin to the nearest portion of the...

  • We do have a solution for you, however, Yakima states that the SkyBox 21 Cargo Box, # Y07337, will not fit directly on the factory roof rack of your 2010 Toyota FJ Cruiser. First, you will want to install the Yakima RailGrab Roof Rack, # Y00409 and # Y00138. This will provide crossbars that the SkyBox 21 cargo box will mount to. I have attached the installation instructions as well as an installation video of this roof rack for you to check out. You will notice that the vehicle...

From the Brake controller here are your connections. White wire to negative battery post. Black wire through a 20 amp circuit breaker, item # PK54520, to the positive battery post. Red wire to the stop light switch wire behind the brake pedal. Blue wire runs back to the blue wire on the 7-Way adapter. You will then...

  • Weight Distribution is a good idea if you are pulling at least 50 percent of your vehicles weight. Many good WD systems come with sway control, too, so we will look at those. First, you will need a hitch. I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch, # 13367, which is a custom fit item for your 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser, unless your FJ is equipped with the auxiliary fuel tank. The hitch will bolt to the frame and this one will install in about 30 minutes. I have included a link to the instructions...
