My 69 FJ40 build: 1 Tons, atlas, 42's.. New pics
« on: Jul 24, 2011, 01:20:45 PM »
Just picked this rig up on Friday & already loving it.  It has a 4" Specter Offroad lift, 33x12.5 BFG MT's, ARB front, SBC 350 & T-350 auto with 3 speed case.  Thinking about what I want to do with it, but for now its too fun to drive around!

Sweet rig AW! Sounds like it's built pretty good, I'd say just drive it for awhile and see if there is anything you want to change. Welcome aboard!

Haven't been on the forum in awhile, its been crazy at the shop.  Chipping away at the 40, moved the front axle 3" forward, 1.5" wheel spacers all the way around, rebuilt all the steering components, built custom 15x8" 2.5" BS wheels & powdercoated them white, new 35" MTR's, and a intake manifold leak turned into a 5.3 Vortec swap.   :shake:

Sweet FJ, like the new stance, looks way better stretched 3" forward. Staying tuned to this one.  :cool:

Started taking apart the front end so I can weld up the motor mounts and get everything prepped for paint.  Dropped off all the front sheetmetal at the sand blaster today.

Just ordered new urethane body mounts, all new trim/emblems, and picking up a gallon of paint and materials to get this thing looking better.

Spent more time taking the cruiser apart today.  Sending more and more parts to sandblast, hopefully I can start putting it back together soon!  :crossed:
