I'm new owner of a 1992 FJ1200. Always wanted one, finally timing was right and it was worth the wait. I've been riding on and off road for about 45 years. I'm in deep south Texas. It's started to cool off just a bit, so I'm looking forward to putting more miles on the FJ.

Welcome, good looking FJ.
The glass is not half full, it was engineered with a 2X safety factor.

Whizbang,

Howdy! 
Welcome to the FJ campfire.  Pull up a seat, kick your shoes off, relax and be among friends.   :yes:
We have remedies for most FJ issues, so feel free to ask if necessary.
Cheers,
Red

P.S. Life is too short, and health is too valuable, to ride on cheap parade-duty tires.

Welcome aboard Todd. Very nice '92 you have there.
I think the rubber mount 91/92's (non abs) are the best FJ's.
Then again, my '84 is kinda special.
