started with a 92 FJ80, parted out alot of it, bought some 39" swampers for mock up to see how much body would need to be modded to make them fit at stock height..bobbed 9" out of the back, started boat siding it...all on my trailer in my driveway!...wife and neighbors were stoked!...now its at my shop, sold most stock parts (still have rear axle if anyone needs one), cut off frame front/rear, cut out floor, cut whole drivers side off to get motor in and see how much body would need to be widened to fit motor in rear and still be able to have seats on either side...6" is good, which is cool, as it will match the extra width of the full size axles..

Wow.  Very ambitious project.   :thumbs:

AND SHOULD, USE THE WD-40. IF IT SHOULDN'T MOVE AND DOES, USE THE DUCT TAPE.

  • Back at it after 5 years!
Builds like this...  :love:  :love:  :ladys-man:  :love:

Makes me want to sell off everything and build something like this. So what's the goal for the finished product? Sand car I guess?
