Re: Back Bay FJ - Maine Army Green FJC

Love you wheels and tires - question, I'm looking to change my Stock 2012 FJ and wanted 35" Tires, with a 3" life my local shop is telling me they won't fit and they'd be have to cut too much of my frame.

Thoughts/Comment?

Re: Maine Army Green FJC

Love the Green! Nice work!

I recognize the background in your pix. East End Beach boat launch.. Backbay Customs, Paul G White trucks. Steve White is a friend of mine. I grew up in Portland on Allen Ave Extension and live in Westbrook about 2 miles from the Paul G White warehouse on Riverside Industrial Park.

I have a 2007 3 pedal FJ. Been lurking on this site for a year. Just joined. and this is my 1st post...

If I see your FJ at Back Bay Customs on Allen Ave. I'll stop in.

There's no frame cutting, you have to chop back the body mount (not structural) and flatten the pinch welds to not rub, also adding caster helps.
Myself and hundreds (if not more) of others wheel on 35's with no problems whatsoever.

Re: Maine Army Green FJC

We had a little time to throw the FJ on the lift and put some more work into the mounting bracket for my ExtremeAire compressor. Started by bending up a heavy gauge piece of stainless for the base plate. We then notched the intake end for added clearance to tuck it up as high as possible, and built arms out of stainless tubing that use existing threaded holes in the frame for mounting. The end result came out great and is tucked up very high, and well shielded from the exhaust. I plan on moving the terminals I placed under there for now, and once wired we will be building a stainless removable cover for the whole thing as well to further prevent rocks and debris from beating it up.
Progress so far:

Re: Maine Army Green FJC

Still (slowly) working on the air setup, been pretty busy with house projects and getting out on the bike as much as I can.

I did take a day last weekend to drop the headliner and install a cb for an upcoming trip. Went with the President McKinley and a 3ft Firestick for now, pretty pleased with the install, just need to decide how I want to handle the mic cord when it's connected.

Re: Maine Army Green FJC

More air setup progress. I was able to run both 4ga wires wrapped in heavy loom all the way through the driverside framerail from rear bumper to engine bay, mounted the relay and buttoned up some more of the wiring. I'll be mounting the Viair tank tonight (hopefully), then it's just plumbing, an electronic drain valve, and then the covers/skids for it all.

Re: Maine Army Green FJC

Made some tank mounting brackets from 11ga stainless, welded them to the truck, and mounted the tank. Also began running some of the plumbing. Really pleased with how this is coming along, both the tank and compressor are mounted very high and you really have to get under there to even see it.
Plan to finish it up and test everything over the next 2 days, then fabricate some covers.
