Layonnn's Voodoo Build




When the FJ came out, i thought it looked cool, but didn't really know about it's offroad ability.
I had an H3 brocure at my house and was seriously looking at buying. Test drove it. I can accelerate on my road bike faster than that thing. Decided to look around. Found this forum. Realized it could not only do some serious offroading, but do it in style.
So after about 3 test drives, I went in and bought it. I stayed up all night reading through the manuals and going look at it in the driveway, just oogling. I don't remember what packages i got. It has the FJammer, A-TRAC, locker, and keyless entry. That is all i cared about really.
At the beginning i just wanted lift and tires. Man, it's like pringles, once you pop, you can't stop.
The stock FJ and Beau the dog.

Re: Layonnn's Voodoo Build

Armor
ARB Bull Bar
ARB rock sliders w/ skids




Suspension
Old Man Emu 886 and 895 springs with OME shocks

Tires
BFGoodrich A/T's in 285/70/r17 on stock alloys painted black (street and mild wheeling set)

https://www.fjcruiserforums.com/forum...ut-alloys.html


Super Swamper LTB's in 34x10.50r16 mounted on ProComp 87 series in 16x8 w/3.75" BS and Gorilla black lugs (wheeling set)

I decided to go with these tires for a couple of reasons.
The trails down here are mostly ran in jeeps. Therefore, they are just wide enough for jeeps. Most of the time the trails are slick mud and this is the worst enemy of the BFG A/T. To get through some sections, i would have to use a good bit of throttle and have some speed.
Speed + not much traction + tight trails = the very likely chance of banged up body panels.
So, i went with a very aggressive bias ply tire as a wheeling only tire. Tall and narrow to reach down into the ruts that most of these trails have. They are no fun to drive on the highway. The FJ felt like a sports car when i put the A/T's back on.
Another reason, 126 a tire!!!

Engine
TRD cold air intake
Doug Thorley y-pipe
JBA cat-back exhaust (tip re-routed out to the side)

Lighting
PIAA extreme white H4 bulbs
IPF 900XS series driving lights

Re: Layonnn's Voodoo Build

My number one trail guide, Beaumont
Maybe more so that going out on the trails, his number one passion is to just sit in the backyard and watch the squirrels and birds play around. He will also sometimes try to climb the tree to get squirrels. You can tell he has duck hunting in his genes.

Re: Layonnn's Voodoo Build

More trail shots.
These first few are from a trail ride at Big easley a couple weeks ago.





notice no dent on the side




These are a few from the ride at Sicily Island. These trails (as jason and i have discussed) are WAY too tight to run a full size without taking damage. I don't believe there was even a single jeep that didn't get damage out there.

Re: Layonnn's Voodoo Build

I like the combination of the white bezel and the blacked-out mirrors/door handles. Looks perfect on a Voodoo!!

Re: Layonnn's Voodoo Build

Looks great Layton! The picture with ARB sliders has skids on them. Are they modded or does ARB ship them like that? I've never noticed those.
