Re: "Selling the FJ, what is the next logical step for crawling?"
It is my understanding that the OP is looking for a dedicated trail rig. If rock crawling is your thing why not just an old CJ 5 or CJ 7. I wheel with a guy who has a CJ 5 rock crawler. It is a beast on the trail but terrible on the street. The specs on these models are ideal for the type of crawling that you want to do. No need for a super charger when you can just stuff a big block or LS motor in it. Putting 37s on a CJ would be no problem with minimal trimming and you get to do your type of crawling without doing the Rubicon thing. If you sold your FJ you would have extra money to build it to your specs and upgrade its reliability. Just an idea.
Here is one near me that I found.
