You will probably see me lighting myself on fire chopping up the mounts/welding, every four letter cuss word, plus mark and i playing jokes on each other.

Congrats on the SAS, can't wait to see it.

And thanks for the update on the bumpers and sliders. Am waiting patiently. Could you please post more pics from different angles of the fr. bumper?

Sorry for the hi-jack guys.

We are working as hard as we can on the Front and Rear tube bumpers along with the sliders. It is only Mark and I at the shop so we can only do so much. We have now brought on a third person to help do all general stuff, so things should start picking up a lot faster now that is in place.

Truly sorry it has taken so long, last week didn't help either. We were out of the shop for half the week working with a major auto manufacturer on a photo shoot. I cannot talk about what happened since Mark and I both signed a document stating our business and everything we own will disappear if we leak any info

As for the SAS we do have plans in the beginning of October for tearing down Bill's truck and ours. We will have a build up for the two FJs when the time comes. Looking forward to finally chopping up a FJC

Re: Coming soon... Metal Tech's Solid Axle Swaps

if I can give anybody one simple piece of advice about the fjc sas... the driver's side seems to weigh hundreds of lbs more than the pass side. it's no prob if you're relocating the rear coils outboard or doing something else.. but if you keep them in the stock location make sure all the coils have a couple inches of adjustment

best of luck... I'll be watching
