Toytec’s new LCA Skids for ’07 – ’09 FJ Cruisers are a great way to upgrade your existing LCA’s without breaking the bank. These weld-on skids reinforce and protect your stock LCA’s so they can handle the occasional obstacle. Each set sells for $199, and installation shouldn’t take more than 1 hour of shop time. If you weld these are an even better bargin.
Next up are upgraded LCA’s from The TOY Outfitters. These LCA’s feature 30degree Johnny Joints on the frame side, and urethane bushings on the axle side. They’re made of a tough 1.5” .250 wall DOM tubing, so they’ll stand up well to most obstacles. They’re manufactured in either black or red, but The TOY Outfitters can accommodate other colors as well. For $265 + Shipping, these are one the most economical LCA replacements for your FJ.

Our final new LCA upgrade comes from Redline Motorsports. Redline is brand new to the FJ Market, but if their Extreme LCA’s are any indication, we’ll be writing much more about them in the future. These LCA’s are built to handle it all. They’re constructed of 1.75” .250 DOM tubing and feature 1” Kevlar lined Heim joints on each end. They’re fully adjustable via custom misalignment spacers, so they’ll work just fine on lift FJ’s. The Heim joints also drastically increase articulation of the rear of the FJ. These are one of the best LCA upgrades available. Visit the Videos section at www.fjc-mag.com for our install video on these LCA’s. They’re not the least expensive option, going for $400/pair, but if you want Extreme protection, this is the set to get.
