So with the new 60 coming are you going to try and mount your Kings ? This is what I am doing with mine. Maybe give you a idea . This will get the shocks up and still have the travel I need . This will give a ton of clearance . I really dislike the stock design

Re: Iconic's Partial To Blue Build

I have the tubing, just need to bend it and I plan to make shock hoops like the Landshark FJC. I want to try to do it without cutting into the cab if possible. Mine are special 14" short bodied Kings and I want to try and see how they work without re-linking the rear lol. From all the measurements I've taken almost 2 years ago it should work. Just need to get the wide axle and try it.

There are 3 gulches trails in the area. Hackett, Metburry, and Longwater.

We ran Hackett Gulch first. It is supposed to be the hardest. Yellow FJ stayed back at camp.

There was a fire in 2002 that burned down alot of the forest along these trails.

Only a couple challenging spots in this trail. I was following a suburban from Texas which went slow through the tight spots but they didn't seem to have any issues either.
Attachment 1086788

At the very end of the trail there is a water crossing that goes to a dead end, so there isn't much of a reason to cross it. But we saw something in the middle of the river and had to investigate lol.

A jeep didn't quite make it!! And the suburban winched him out. We joked around with them a little after they had rescued the jeep and hung out down by the water, had some lunch and pulled out. Beautiful area. Rocks remind me of pics I've seen of the 'con.

I missed the turnoff for Longwater but we ended up doing Metburry Gulch.

Only one tippy spot on this trail made it challenging. There was probably a better line thru here but I didn't bother trying to find it.

We ran back to the campsite for supper, then drove 7 hours back home the following day. Ain't no place like home. The FJ did great and there is very little I need to change. I'm proud of it. What an awesome adventure machine. My wanderlust has been quenched for the time being.

Without getting too sappy, I learned some valuable lessons during this trip. Even if nothing seems to be going my way, we can still have fun no matter what.

Feel free to post any pics of us if you have any.

Been busy and hadn't had a chance to read through this until today. Great write-up and looks like a fantastic trip!

BTW, any word on when you will get your 60?

Sorry for the slow reply, been gone fishing for a few days. I haven't asked for an update since I first placed the order but it should be near the end of this month.

I have learned that without pics and a notarized document showing said fish and at least 3 forms of ID that you could not possibly be fishing .
