I was working in Memphis, TN the last few days and decided to stop in at 4WheelParts. I got to meet Jon the manager and the rest of the guys, very cool group. Today before leaving, Jon let me crawl up on the RTI Ramp and get some flex shots of the Raptor. I thought I post them up for those of you that have or thinking about getting an ICON Suspension, this is what to expect as far as articulation goes. :D















My Favorite from behind. :)

If your ever passing through the Memphis area, stop in and say hi to the guys. :) They have some serious rock buggies too.

Show those guys at FourWheelParts what a real FJ Cruiser should look like!

As with Shadow-Warrior, I have the DR/Icon suspension as well and have been very happy with all aspects of it. There are more expensive suspension systems out there but the DR suspension closes the deal time after time ON THE TRAIL, where it counts! :rawr:

Awesome pics! I am trying to picture what it would look like if the front was SFA. As always, your FJ is looking very bad azz!

Just checked your "Meet the Raptor" link. WOW! That is the most bad azz FJ I've ever seen!!! I think I just found the blue print to modding my new FJ with that one!

I stopped by my local 4Wheel Parts store for the first time last week for some advice and, well......was'nt treated so friendly.

I'm getting my suspension done next month and have been looking at either the Icon or Fox suspension. Thanks for the inspiration!

Don't think you're alone. My experience is that they look at the FJ and don't know what to make of it--so they fall back on lifted pick-ups and Jeeps as the gods of the 4 Wheeling World. So I steer clear of 4 Wheel Parts.

Yeh, I didn't get the RTI Score, I was running out of time. I had to get back to work. :(

I know what you mean, this place was a little different. I was surprised when I pulled in as a matter of fact I was talking with you on the phone, they started pouring out of the building checking out the rig, that's when I had to hang up. :lol:

They were a great group of guys, not the norm when it comes to 4Wheel Parts. Jon the manager was very cool, he has a Rock Buggie, I should have taken some pics of. It was a good time, they wanted me to go mudding with them, but I had to get back to work. :(

Nice flex pics! Great looking FJ as well. Chris
Thanks :)

:huh:

I painted my exhaust black also :eek:


Great photos, Mike :)
:lol: I didn't paint mine, mine is the TRD S.S. :)

Great shots Mike - :cheers:

Thanks Vince. :cheers:

I was wondering the same thing.

Super cool shots Mike, thanks for sharing.
Thanks Eric, I wish I had more time to spend when I was there that afternoon. Jon spottted me up the ramp, then I jumped out took some quik pics, and then had to haul a$$ to work. :(
