It will be a cross of Shawnee hills design, Sawtooth and Bruder 4 designs.
I was also thinking of new rear springs. My rough country rear springs are 13 years old and I`m thinking they may be starting to sag.Just ordered an OME BP-51 suspension (heavy) from 4 Wheel Parts. ARB/OMEFJC10HKBP51. 2.5-3.0 inch lift, adjustable shocks front and rear. Adjustable in compression and rebound, reservoir. Coil overs adjustable in height.
When they were installing the skids I took a pic of the rear springs. OME-895 (now OME-2895 - 1.5 - 2.0 lift/light load). I thought I was getting 3" springs but was never sure, the receipt didn't specify, just some internal number. The shop closed not long after the job was done, too bad they did good work. Always thought the rear end was a little low and wrote it off to the extra weight I added over the years.

Ok, I thought I'd just add new springs, nope, my shocks are only good for 2" or less lift. I went through several iterations of 'what if I do this' and decided screw it and go all new. More used parts for the corner of the garage.
Now the bad news, the boat from Down Under is not due in until mid July. I'm not good at waiting.
Excuse the pic of the eep. OME BP-51
Build thread required!!I was watching the Bruder EXP 4 and 6 videos on you tube when wife walked in and showed her the prices she said better start building one and tossed me her bank card.
The last few weeks have not bought anything for the FJ's but a whole lot of things for a trailer build me and the wife are going to start on. wheels and tires to match the FJs, Timbren axel-less system with 4 inch lift for off road tires, brake drums and brakes with parking brake, hubs for Toyota wheels. Off to get plywood and epoxy resin. 2"x3" steel being delivered this week.
Wicked! I use torque pro to keep an eye on my coolant and tranny temps and watch my timing advance with different gases, but that's awesome you can get oil temp too. Now only if I had oil pressure...once you’ve purchased the enhanced data file which is $13.99 USD you get pages and pages of parameters you can select to display.
I replaced mine with that kit - worked perfectly.Spec 3+ clutch kit
Clutch Masters internal TO bearing
Replacing the clutch sometime during July when the parts gets here. Hopefully it stops the chirping.
