Latest PIC






I sold this.


to buy this

@ the dealer..


Bought a pair of Maxtrax and test the FJ on some trails..





First mod, sound system.


change rear pillar speakers and oem sub, for a Kicker shallow mount






now it sounds like it should..


then installed CB radio, changed the oem inverter for a 1,500 watt cobra (installed under the passenger seat, and ran a cable from there to the back of the truck where the outlet is located), added another inverter in the front (400w),



then bought Icon coilovers and rear springs, with radflo extended travel rear shocks, Total Chaos UCA'S, and 1,5 inch rear spacer to level the lift.





got rid of the OEM Roof rack and bought an used ARB touring rack from someone in the forum.



Me and my gf built this storage box to organize our camping trips.



here is the link to see how the box was made.

Then bought this fourtreks mounts from Joe (dapurak) and installed the RTT





then went camping:




then I bought a set of (4) KM2 BF goodrich 285/75/17 with a set of (4) procomp wheels 52 series 17x8 with 4.5 BS, and 2 pairs of 1.25'' spidertrax to clear the calipers




spidertrax 1.25''

Very nice rig!! I was wondering if you have chopped the front body mounts; if not, do you experience any tire-rub? And what is the width of your wheels?
Thanks! :cheers:

I did the body mount chop before I even test the tires because I was going to put 315/75/16 but I ended up with 285/75/17 which is about the same tall as the 35'' but skinnier which I really like.. Sometimes I hear the tire hitting the mud flaps at full turn, but it sounds like they are barely hitting it, so not big deal at all...
