Spindle reinforcement is a must. Let me repeat - a must!

And why are you looking at wider tire? The FJ is nor top heavy and you are also going in for spacers, so why? Tire will scrap a bit in the inner well plastic part, ignore it and drive on. No need to cut.

Modifications / FJ Cruiser suspension build
« Last post by Palavarp on 11 July 19, 11:39:26  »
Hi guys,
I’m pretty much settled on the BP51’s for my FJ since they seem to offer the best bang for my buck, but I intend to keep the stock rims.
I’m not in a hurry  to do all at once so I planned the build as follows:
1. Install 30mm wheel spacers (keeping the stock tires)
2. Lift kit installation
3. Replace tires with the maximum width that will fit on stock rims.

Seemed pretty straight forward until I spoke to different garages and was told about body mount chops and spindle reinforcement.
Is spindle reinforcement still necessary on the latest model FJ? I thought Toyota addressed this by changing the material specifications on all models after 2017.
When will the body mount chop be necessary (after spacer installation or tire size change?)
What is the maximum tire width that can be safely installed on stock 17’ FJ rims (2019 model)?
Your feedback will help me plan this build so that I’m not unnecessarily throwing out components earlier than I need to.
BTW the ride on the stock suspension is amazing.

Seems like a strange situation. I have not heard of such an issue so far. Where did you get the switch installed from?

Technically, the kill switch and low range selection do not have any connection, since kill switch installs are usually cutting of one ABS sensor (usually from front left wheel sensor). And the ABS sensor shouldn't affect drive selection switch. In fact, getting into Low range deactivates ABS, Traction and Stability controls.

Hi DR’s,
Since installing a kill switch on my Prado (to deactivate traction control and ABS) I’ve noticed that I’m unable to select 4 low while the kill switch is activated. I first have to turn the kill switch off, switch the engine off, restart the engine and then select 4 low.
Has anyone else with a Prafo faced the same problem? I’m keen to know how you overcame the problem.

Hello Palavarp,

You can head down to Best Line Garage (owned by Kiran in our group) or Titan Performance (owned by Shibu & Noble in our group).

I would recommend you also get the ABS cut off switch and the flag pole done, if not already present.

As always, do check these garages yourself and go for one that you feel comfortable with.

Hello Raiders,
I'm looking for off road bumpers and a skid plate (underbody protection) for my 2016 Prado. The standard bumpers  have a very limiting angle of approach and severely hampers how adventurous I'm willing to get without scraping along the ground.
Any recommendations that don't break the bank.
