Thats awesome Sol. I knew you would love the link system in the rear with coilovers. When I did mine it was night and day.

I'll never build another with leafs in the rear unless it's built to just haul stuff. They just flat out out perform leafs any day. The stability is unmatched and the ride is a 1000 times better.

So glad you got to experience it. So happy fo you man.
I totally agree with you. Even though I only drove it a short distance and it was on the road the rear links far out performed the leafs. I'm just guessing but in the rocks it's going to be completely different. The stability was just unbelievable. The ride quality was just as amazing. Plush, planted and tracked straight as an arrow. I can see why you'd only build a linked rig.

Thank you! I'm going to be wheeling a lot this summer, so we should connect on one of these trips.

Artwork can't be rushed...

I'm guessing it will come home at the end of July. The belly pan is being worked on right now. Then a gas tank skid and a few other things are left to complete, then some paint and it's done.

Hey Sol, you should come down to Socal for the TTORA August run. RST is going to have quite a few rigs out this year. Rays newly done dual three link Tacoma, Dans 1st gen Tacoma, Daves dual three link 4th gen 4Runner and my beast. Would love to complete the family with the most awesome FJ out there for this run.

Hell, we may even get Jason off of his cozy couch and actually wheel a Toyota again instead of those rentals in Texas. LOL

I'll think about it, but man that is such a long drive for a weekend trip... assuming it's at Big Bear again? Which weekend?

Re: Project SAC'D FJC - "The Rebuild" and then some...

More progress on the paint and getting things back underneath the FJC for good!



Rear cross member and top link mount...



Panhard...



The backside of the frame notch...



Shock tower, air bump cans...



Swaybar and panhard bracket...



Rear end reassembled...



















Then moved on to tearing down the front in order to paint everything...
