Re: "Selling the FJ, what is the next logical step for crawling?"
There's two ways to do what you want - you could:
1) Throw money at it, buying another vehicle that will allow you to cruise over the obstacles etc. (a helicopter would be perfect)
2) Develop the required talent.
There is of course a third way - you could make a few relatively cheap mods to the FJ and take the middle road.
Do you have lockers front & rear? Have you looked at swaybar disconnects? Have you considered long travel arms up front?
That way would be my preference - The easy way isn't the fun way. I like to build my skills first, but maybe that's just me.
Swaybars are gone, rear locker and front a-trac, LT in the rear, LT in the front is a lot of money for not a lot of gain IMO. I hear you about the skills part. But when you get to an obstacle that is as high as your headlights, not much you can do with your mad skills. Levitation did not work.
