5 Things I HATE About My Toyota FJ Cruiser.Mar 17, 2022
What's happening guys? I'm Ricki Havoc and this is crazy offroad. Today we're talking about five
hateabout my 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser. Each one lets you know that I love my shakers, but there's no doubt about it. I wouldn't change it for the world, so yeah, let's get into it. I'm going to backtrack, you know, so I'll save the worst for last, as if the thing I
hatethe most is going to be the last thing you hear. approximately number 5 the air vents I know they are super small, it's not complicated at all, they work very well my air conditioning works very well my heater works very well and flows very well what is it.
I liked the new Toyota Tacoma style air vents or the Jeep Wrangler style air vents where they're circular and you can move them around, you know, especially the Jeep ones. I mean, they can move 360 degrees, it's kind of stupid, but that's one of the
thingsI don't really care about about my J half is the air vents. I wish we had air in the back a couple of times, the very few times I've ridden in the back of that car, you either have to have the windows down or you need to have that air on because you get so hot. back there in the back, but number 5 will be number 4 air vents and I've seen a couple of other videos where guys are complaining about this and it's kind of a thing for me, but I'm I have a little bit of Lucky to be in Southern California with the way the traffic lights are set up, it's not just the ones at the top, it's the ones on the sides, but if you've ever been to FD, pick where the things are.
They tank and quite a bit. literally so if you sit on it the windshield is small and wide you know what I mean so we don't stop at a traffic light you can't see it like you have to crouch down and look to see if you can see that light . make sure you are in green. I mean, it's a small slope, so problem number three with the rear window is that it opens, like you saw in the video. I don't understand why Toyota couldn't have done it that way. a 4runner where it just rolls backwards, I mean, it would have made sense, you know, yeah, it just sucks, you have to put the key in, you have to turn the key to the right and that's the only way to get those windows. and pop, there is no manual way to get a department unless you do an aftermarket kit on a manual wallet, the only aftermarket kit I've ever seen, you already have to have that window open just to make it look like you already have to turn the keys and then what you want to open opens for you and then we close it but you already have to make a pop so that sucks and defeats purpose number two when you fold the seats the seats are not completely flat.
The rear ends are not flat, many people just use it as a bedding area because it is all plastic so it is easy to clean. I tried to sleep on it, so the producers at 3fj ran it for a couple of seasons, like two years ago and that was it. it was very windy like it was a night race and it was like 3 in the morning, 2 in the morning when we got to camp and we got to another place where we camped on top of Diablos Drop and I said that in another video but it was so long ago wind when we got there I had my tent and my dog and I thought, you know what?
I just took out the cooler and took everything out. I threw my sleeping bag on the floor. pillow and it sucked sleeping there, I mean waking up in the morning with a sore back and that's not great and then the problem of getting out of the vehicle because you have to go through the front doors unless you have a broken window or you did the mod from the little door where you had a little thing that I didn't realize so I locked myself in and had to figure out how to crawl to the front, it wasn't fun so number one the DVD player which I hate. that DVD player, I can't stand that DVD player and this could be too fake for Maya or it could be for several FJ
cruisers like I said, I think it was a Toyota dealer, I installed the DVD, I didn't want the DVD player and I have Jake Fisher, but I found it when I found my FJ in Buena Park three years ago because I'm the second owner of this one, the FJ was three years ago when I found out it had 22's with low profile tires and when I opened it up It was immaculate, I had never seen land and had a DVD player.
I think about that. It started rolling wet and now when I drive on the road it's like rattles and I hate rattles and I know a lot of guys would say like us. I'll turn up the music, yes, I'm cute, I'm a musician. I love being in a desert, but so is the other side. I like quiet time. I like to listen to my tires. I like to listen to my exhaust gases. I like to just browse. in my windows now I'm not hearing anything yeah that DVD player sucks and if I could find a way to remove it without the headliner being completely destroyed and what I mean by that is it has um it's like gold on a A couple of ads and you know it's going to be holes in my headliner and all that, I just don't want to deal with it, that's why I haven't come out yet in three years which would have been like the second thing I did.
