"Selling the FJ, what is the next logical step for crawling?"
I need some new perspective here. Have had my FJ for 6 years now, modified it heavily and did lots of offroading with it. I am now to the point where I need a change. A lot of the offroading I do is rock crawling stuff in Moab and such and the limits of the IFS have become evident.
Looked at doing the solid axle swap but financially it just makes no sense (axles, supercharger to run 37-39" tires, and the like). Plus, the FJ has relatively poor trail visibility so I don't think that will be improved with a solid axle.
The question is what to get next. I'd like something as close to a family buggy as possible while staying road legal. Solid axles of course with the option of fitting 37-39" tires without demolishing half the body of the car.
I thought of a 1st gen Taco with 4 doors, easy to supercharge, relatively easy to do an axle swap, bonus having a bed. Also thought of an 80 series Land Cruiser. Comes with good stock axles, cheap to lift, available supercharger and bonus 3rd row.
Please give me some ideas. No, getting a Rubicon is not an idea
