Thank you, The Sun Fusion is just the base model with a few extras! Blue has sun roof, small lift, bigger tires. However on the road the yellow does ride much nicer! I am hoping to fix the ride on the blue one. Previous owner put rough country shocks on it and it. I have since purchased the Bilstein 5100 shocks and saving for the matching struts, replacing most of the front end suspension to make it ride a bit smoother. The blue one has about 50000 more miles on it but I love it. We have taken the yellow one climbing what a sweet ride I tell you! Also working on replacing all chrome looking parts to Black it out. Then the wrap when it gets a little warming. Still working on the design, I want it to be original!

The stock ride is extremely sweet, and unfortunately is one of the compromises we make whe modifying suspension for offroad as it needs to be stiffer. But some of the higher end suspensions are adjustable for ride, allowing you to recapture that Rolls Roycieness lol But what you have is perhaps the best of all - one VB offroad beast and one yellow Rolls :grin If I had a garage that's exactly what I'd do!

Oh, FYI - when you reply to someone's post it helps to press the "Quote" button below...it links your reply, and notifies them at the same time :smile

Thank you, I was beginning for feel like an idiot! LOL! Hopefully I did this right this time!:laugh I do like the fact of having one stock and one beast, Nobody wants two of the same! Our neighbors thought we were crazy till I started making changes to mine. They could not understand the reason behind having two of the same vehicles. (They will really never understand the FJ concept). I love this thing and probably will never purchase another vehicle ever! I am glad that they sell replacement frames this way it is possible to keep for ever! Minnesota rust is a killer!

Thank you, I am actually going to save up for the winch bumper, just have to decide which will look best, I say the more heavy duty the better, my neighbors keep backing up and hitting me, I want something to leave a mark on their vehicle instead of pushing into my bumper... HAHA

I don't know where you got that thought from. I'm just a Trailworx Enthusiast! >:D no one would want my bumper designs.. the top bumper is the hybrid.

I will have to check them out. They look pretty heavy duty.. Might have to buy for both the FJ's. That just might leave a mark on the neighbors cars when they back into us. LOL! >:D
