Yup, some wrenching skills and experience under my belt. I`m very hands-on kind of guy. I`m already noticing how good the ride and drivability are, especially with power delivery (coming from turbo diesel, smoothness of the torque curve is very noticeable).Great looking FJ you have there! And it sounds like you have a fair bit of off-roading (and probably wrenching) experience already, so I don't think an FJ will surprise you with anything major, other than noticing how nice the ride is after owning/driving a straight front axle Jeep (and whatever else that was the same) . Are the wheels true beadlocks? 16 or 17"? Do you know what company they are from? Have you seen the Bison roof rack? Are they somewhat local to you? Any comments on their products?
Wheels are true beadlocks. I will try to dig out some info on the maker (I got an unused 6th wheel in the box with the car). It`s a 16 inch wheel. Probably of Dubai origin.
I`ve seen the bison rack on a YT vid. Not in person. From what I see on the products I have in my car it`s really well made. This is all I can say for now as I`m not willing to pass judgment on practicality before I get some miles on the FJ using their stuff. By US standards they are local (200 miles), but by our standards, not so much . I might be in their neck of the woods in a few weeks so if You want detailed info we can arrange something.
Thanks. This was already done by the previos owner but I will keep on top of this. This is by far the most rust free 4x4 I ever owned and I want to keep it this way.Welcome to the fold!
Be sure to cover the frame and suspension with something before it gets exposed to European road salt, or the underside will quickly develop rust.
Will do. I will ask the garage to make some photos of the install. If this fails I will do a detailed write-up of what I know about it (It`s not my forte, hence having someone do it for me)dzien' dobry. welcome from upstate New York USA. Nice Tank!
i'm really interested in the LPG setup, size and location of the tanks and all that stuff. keep us posted.
