Just loose and shifted, not bent.

I would not attempt to install them myself, but many others have done so.

Awesome rig! Two questions for you:

How difficult was the install of the rear LCA's, Stan's product is definitely on my list of upgrades?
Rear LCA install is not bad. There are many threads on here that show you how to do it and its good to know in the event you should have one fail on the trail. You just have to jack up the FJ...remove a couple of bolts...pull the rear axle back into location with a rachet strap and mount the new links.

Really can be done in an hour or so. Regardless, safety wise I'd recommend having someone around while you install it.

Here are my new Outrider Offroad LCA skids all painted red and ready to be installed.

Thanks much Digger - these things are awesome, built to take a punch.



Just in time for Cruise Moab in a couple of weeks.

Thanks much guy's.

I can't believe how much better my rig handles with those new stock UCA's I got from you Sang - thanks much.

Mark - As soon as I clean off my rig I'm ready for the Hood Decal.

:cheers:

The rooftop tent looks great but I don't know how the dog will feel, being ignored down below??

It all looks like a lot of fun!

Hey Larry - Yeah the RTT has it's place in the mix - It's pretty cool how I've got it up there - Jesse and I can put it on and take it off pretty easily.

I'll post up some details of the install soon.

Cruise Moab trip 2010 – April 24 – May 1, 2010


1876 miles round trip from our home in Fullerton California.

We left early in the morning on Saturday, and by 4:30 pm we had our campsite all set up on Little Creek Mesa overlooking St. George Utah.

It was a beautiful stormy day

It’s really great to have two capable rigs in the family and be able to experience this kind of brilliant raw beauty and wilderness.

Claudia hiked up to the actual arch for this shot

We ended up not participating in any of the organized trail runs we had signed up for but instead headed out on our own and explored beautiful Moab.

The event was very well organized and I won a prize at the Friday night raffle too, $200 off the price of a cargo barrier for an FJ 80 (and me with an FJ Cruiser).

One of the best things about the Cruise Moab event was the incredibly cool Toyota vehicles there, it was like FJ Porn (sorry no pictures).

We drove back home on Saturday straight through to Fullerton in 12 hours and almost exactly 700 miles.

Thanks much to amaesing (Mark) and Maverick (Rick).

It looks great on the Sun Fusion (IMHO)

Beautiful photos, Vince. It looks like a great time! I'm jealous. :)
Thanks Bill - yeah it was really great in Moab, and not 110 degrees for a change - good to see you back here man.

Very nice pictures! :wave:
We went to Zion couple of months ago. One of the most memorable trips i ever made. Did not have FJC with me unfortunately.

Those decals look awesome! :bigthumb:
Thanks much Ivan - Zion is truly magical.
