    Looks good. Didn't know that the FJs could handle 35s.

    Oztents been a great addition. Sofar it's seen wind,rain, snow and extreme heat (and that was just in the past month, lol) no issues with any type of weather sofar.

    The only down side is it being the tagalong version it isn't self supporting, it requires either the Foxwing or a 2.5m awning to support it. That being said I may upgrade to the rv5 proper in the future and this would double the size of it

    Pretty much the max size with a 3" lift and an aggressive body mount chop. I still run at full lock.

    Does the rear tire carrier handle a 35 no problem, or is it modded?

    The rear bumper and carrier can support upto a 40" tire I believe. It's limited by size, not weight.

    Couldn't find a better pic of the arm but here's a older one.

    Okay, cool. Couldn't see if it was stock or not.
