Toyota FJ Cruiser Tacoma Level Kit Install Video
Presented by My4x4store.com this video gives you detailed visual instructions on how to install a front level or lift kit on a FJ cruiser. The instructions will also work for a 2005+ Toyota Tacoma as the FJ and Tacoma share the same front suspension.
This video is a guide for the do-it-yourselfer that is going to attempt this in his driveway at home. No fancy hoists or lifts, no special ball joint press, no strut compressor.. just good old fashioned driveway wrenching.
This installation should take the average hands on person about 2-3 hours to do in the driveway.
You will need a good set of metric hand tools, a hammer, a floor jack, jack stands, a pry bar and some patience.

2012 Toyota Tacoma TRD T/X Baja Series Limited Edition
A new Toyota.
Toyota has introduced the 2012 Tacoma TRD T/X Baja Series at the Texas State Fair.
Designed to tackle the toughest terrain, the T/X is equipped with an electronically-controlled locking rear differential, active traction control and downhill assist control. There's also an increased ride height (up 2-inches in front), Bilstein race shocks and TRD coil springs.
The exterior is virtually identical to the standard model, but there are special graphics and bead-lock style wheels with BF Goodrich T/A KO tires.
Power comes from a 4.0-liter V6 engine which can be mated to a six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic transmission. Performance specifications weren't released, so it remains unclear if the engine is the naturally-aspirated variant with 236 hp (176 kW / 239 PS) or the supercharged version with 304 hp (227 kW / 308 PS) and 334 lb-ft (452 Nm) of torque.
Regardless, the model will be available in Access and Double Cab (aka extended and crew cab) configurations when it is launched in the United States in the spring of 2012.
New 2012 Toyota Tacoma
Judging by the attention it's been getting lately, the refreshed 2012 Toyota Tacoma that's been revealed by the automaker will see its market success at the top of the compact pickup market secured in full for coming years.
To update the looks, the new facelifted model sports a new hood, grille, headlights and front bumper among other minor details that should be enough to attract customers to this workhorse.
Changes have also been made to the interior, where the Enture system that made its debut on the Prius V has been introduced. It allows for voice, touch screen and steering wheel mounted controls of the audio and infotainment systems. In similar fashion to Ford's SYNC systems, it provides the latest info on the weather, sports, stocks and even the price of a tank of fuel. The revised instrument panel and controls offer a more high-end feel and overall better quality.
Under the bonnet, the 2.7-liter four-cylinder and 4.0-liter V6 engines carry over, as does the TRD Supercharger kit that Boosts horsepower from 236 to 334 for the V6.
For both Access and Double Cab models, the available option combinations are built on five core packages. The SR5 brings color-keyed overfenders and front bumper, chrome grille surround and chrome rear bumper, intermittent wipers and upgraded interior features and trim, including a leather-wrapped steering wheel and automatic transmission shift lever.
Meanwhile, TRD Sport gets suspension tuning and lower-profile 265/65 R17 tires on 17-inch alloy wheels. This package also gives Tacoma a sporty look with fog lamps, hood scoop, TRD graphics and color-keyed rear bumper, mirrors, grille surround and door handles.
TRD Big Brake systems provide better stopping power for sustained heavy use while also giving better pedal feel. No pricing information has been released yet, but we can expect little to be changed for this mild facelift job.
