New Product Alert-
VHX Instruments FJ40 Black w/ Blue Backlight
Save: 5% off
PRE-ORDERS-- will deliver in early to mid January 2014--
The new VHX Systems fit directly into the stock instrument bezel of a 1962-84 Toyota FJ40 without modification.
Fully lit needles, backlit faces, and highly visible LCD message centers are a few of the things that you can see which set the VHX Series apart from yesterday’s traditional approach to instrumentation. A few of the features which you don’t normally see are the micro-controlled precision stepper motors, solid state sensors for unparalleled accuracy, and user-customizable display feedback, all supported by an unrivaled limited lifetime warranty which has become the standard for Dakota Digital instrumentation systems . Cruiser Solutions worked directly with Dakota Digital to provide them with the initial bezels for this unique gauge cluster!

We joined a group of about 10 vehicles; Toyota Pickup Truck, FJ60's, FJ62's, FJ40 (V8) a 4 Runner, and another 80 Series Cruiser. Rain was the weather for the day, so this made the trail a bit more challenging. we are lead by trail leader Kina Twiggsmith who knows his 4 wheeling. Others that were on the trail were the following; Ken and Steven Flesher of NH, Junior of NH, John Goodyear of NJ, Mike Fox of CT, Walker Christie of MA, Lane of NH and a number more who's names I forget...I apologize. All the Toyota's were are well built and capable vehicles. We managed to break out tools, winches, straps and all the great items that we brought with us for this trail ride. It was a very successful event that the President of the Yankee Toys, David Morin, helped arrange. Thank you to Yankee Toys for hosting this great annual gathering in the mountains of New Hampshire.
