    11 inch wider HJ47

    Wow Monumental build in the dirt and utilizing some great turn buckles to hold things together takes some ingenuity as well. Good Job!

    I would caution on just relying on the line lock. I have ssen a truck that used one have a slight problem. the brakes were hot when applied and things relaxed a tad. Resulting in said truck racing down a mountain. You can visualize what happened next.

    Does anyone take their dog when doing "Hardcore" wheeling?

    I was thinking of the nets the nascar teams use to keep them inside. still see out but provides a level of protection.

    Help with cooling FJ60

    One thing that I see is the fan is not quite far enough towards the radiator in my opinion. You are correct the shroud does not have much affect on cooling at speed its the slow crawl that the fan has to pull air through the radiator. That seems to be the issue.

    Help with cooling FJ60

    Well without pictures it is hard to look at what you have. Do you have a great fan shroud? Auto trans cooler? AC condenser up there also? Power Steering cooler? What pulley is on the water pump? standard size and not under driven? is the convertor locking up?

    Very smart to do it now while it is clean underneath no dirt to fall in your face. I hate oil leaks as well and it is wise to do now while you can.

    I would agree with a transfer case issue, the grinding when placing in park is telling us it is still spinning along like it is when going down the road. Something is missing the connecting point to allow it to continue to spin. Could be the drive shafts are leaning against the wall but we know...

    That is really coming together nicely. Surprised you don't have the fenders covered so if ya lay tools they won't be the first scratches on it. Wait until ya get into the dirt and get the pinstripping dings and dents.

    I don't know if my thought would work or be to darn bulky. But take a piece of short height unistrut weld it on and then insert a unistrut nut w spring and attach a clamp like normal. Unistrut is versital and you can cut and notch to make it stand upright or which ever turned your boat. But...

    Yes lets just get this beautiful creation up and running, after all it is going to be used off road and not a street queen. Some natural pin stripping mixed in on the paint and any minor imperfections will be a mute point.
