Meet Booger (my linex'd OD tank)



The Story:
My wife and I bought Booger in August of '07
She started out as a Black Cherry, but is now OD (scroll far down).
I will add more to this thread as time permits...

Update: Just added CAI and a hiTuck catback just showed up. Demello Rear bumper installed at the Summit. Pictures are toward the end of the thread...I'll update this one soon(max 25 pics per post )


Here she is Stock


Body Mount Chop at the Tech Meet N Greet


OME Heavies and ARB prep


ARB installed with Aux lights and Warn Winch


My boy Oz working on his Rig


Spider Trax and 16"x8" Soft 8 with Maxxis BigHorns install



Buds skids, DiggerLinks& O&B SwayBar Collars installed at my second Meet N Greet

Some fun in Water and Mud



My cheap 10$ HiLift mount


I like Mud


Oz can't see out anymore


The above is what I have done over the last few Months.
I have had my FJ for less then a year and she has completely transformed.
The last few weeks I have been prepping her for Linex, Snorkel,
1500W inverter and heated Seats.
Here is the progress so far. Booger will be done for the Summit.


Booger is Naked


Back from Linex .. here she is in OD, notice the black Vinyl around the windows is gone(we removed it)


Sprayed the door jams, door edges and installed my Bandi




The finished OD product





Thanks for looking so far...

Re: Meet Booger

Al, looking good! I would like to see more pictures of the paint job. Maybe from different lighting and angles? You've put a lot of work into this one.

Re: Meet Booger

Thanks gang...I'll most definitely will add more pics as soon as I start getting Booger together.
The linex dude did a good job, except that he broke the latch mechanism for the rear door. So I will have to remove it and see if I can fix it. I have a lot of panels to put back on and a lot of rewiring..installing my Dual Batt system too....uch I think I am almost in over my head...1 week before the Summit.

Re: Meet Booger

I am not going to lie, i didn't think i would like it as much as i do because of the way the red linex one looked.

But that is flipping awesome looking swicago!

Oh, and that first picture of your son looks like he is going to work in a steel factory with those overalls on, haha.

Re: Meet Booger

Al, you must really like diet coke to have a vending machine in your own garage. Btw, which wheels did you get that you need spacers?
