Re: What did you buy today (FJ related items)?

Just ordered front wheel bearings and seals involved, hope they arrive this week so I can get them on before the weekend.

Re: What did you buy today (FJ related items)?

I added yesterday Bilsteins 5100 rear and front, on my 2014 FJ. I didn't change the springs, only the dampers, but still after a 20 mile run this morning on the piste, and beach I am really impressed. Now I need to change the rear springs and achieve a two-inch minimum lift. I Also did a rear diff breather relocation to the engine bay. I think there is a second breather at the rear of the car, but I couldn't find it or remember what it was? So slowly getting there now as i have fitted Carbon Winch from KPD Industries, Lenz Design Snorkel from Israel, C4 Bumper from USA, Yellow top deep cycle Second Battery, DC/DC dual Battery Charger and bumper LEDs Orange / White. Cheers guys hope you like today's Adventure Shots from the most Southern point in Spain and Europe.

Great shots and that's a really nice concealed winch mount you've found.

Hi Dan thanks for asking.

The specs and a Carbon Winch video for the Carbon Winch 9500 can be found here

https://www.carbonwinches.com.au/car...ric-winch-with

It is an amazing piece of kit, never ever failed me, plus it has a 5 year warranty on water ingress and electrical parts. A breeze to fit, never over heats and it has a Bluetooth remote control. I looked all over the world for a winch that could handle the demands of a loaded truck in the most demanding terrain in the world the Sahara in 40 - 50 Celsius and settled on the Carbon Winch. I ordered it on a Monday was delivered by Thursday and support is awesome.

Tire #5 and something I hope I never need.

Hope that 34 fits on the spare holder.
