    Options to buy on new Fj

    Any recomendations on whether I should buy the following from the dealer or are they easy to buy and install after markert?

    Towing reciever hitch and wire harness
    rock rail
    roof rack (although I am not sure I even want one.) Is it quieter without the rack?

    I haven't bought one yet but plan to early next year.

    Super easy to install after market. You can buy a stock rack cheap on craigs list. I see them all the time from $150 to $250

    I'd get the hitch, but buy sliders and rack aftermarket. They're both pretty straight forward to install.

    get the hitch. if you want a rack, save your money and buy an aftermarket rack that is more useful... same with sliders.


    speaking of racks, someone selling a gobi stealth rack http://www.fjcruiserforums.com/forum...ladder-ca.html.

    I would look strongly at getting a used one with everything you want on it already done. The labor will kill you on many installs.
