i'll have one as soon as i get my extra front set up.PabloCruise said:Haha! Actually, her starter has been behaving lately... I think after she heard price she went and talked to it and told it to be a good starter.
I forgot, you have a 40! I couldn't figure out your interest in 40 springs when you have a 60, already SOA.
Sure, I think we can get you hooked up with the fronts...
You know anyone w/ extra third members sitting around in our area? I'm kinda worried about my rear...
pablos in the same area as i am.trucruiser said:Not to hijack, but i had a post up a month or so ago for some stock springs i was trying to get rid of, no takers so i trashed em.
I think stock wheelbase is 90 inches, so it looks like I picked up btwn 3 and 4 inches...Tejas Cruiser said:Thanks Pablo for the compliment. It's kind of hard to see in the pic, but the wheel wells were cut for flares, and it looks off center. It does not rub, but if I can gain wheel base and looks with a spring flip and DS extension, then I will do it. What did you gain in wheel base? 2"s?
Whoops, Pigtastic is Ben's Pig, sorry.trucruiser said:I know FJBen but not Pigtastic.
I got Ben hooked up with a couple of doors for his pig.
Not sure if you are messing w/ me or not...dgangle said:Pablo,
that rear axle looks 'tarded. What possible benefit can looking this stupid overcome?
Yep, definitely looks funny! You came across fine...dgangle said:yea, I'm messing with ya. Sorry that didn't come across better. Is does look alitttle silly, agreed? I have seen some trim the rear portion of the opening to make it not look so much like a 60's drag racer. You know, the cars they moved the rear axle forward for better weight transfer or whatever.
PabloCruise said:Wheelwells will need to be opened up, and exhaust pipe moved.
Sounds like you are talking 'bout the Cruiser sag and the Cruiser lean.FJ40onNOS said:any one got some rear springs, mine are s***. one is weaker then the other. the rear tube is all 1/4 dimond plate so i think im going to run springs off a 60 to take the added weight. what do you guys think?
As lame as this sounds, the last time I really wheeled it was CM '04. I have screwed around up in the canyon a little bit, but then last fall was the rad and front cover leak, then I started on the lift, oil pan, t-case project a "little while" ago. (I don't even want to guess when I first parked it to do these items)nuclearlemon said:tj
get a large chunk of cardboard, tape it inside your fenderwell and draw the oem curve from the top to the rear edge. cut out the cardboard and use as a template to cut a few inches out of your rear wheel lip...that will help...just please don't do the sqaure cut or jeep cut on your fenderwell...follow stock lines.
looks great. have you wheeled it at all since installing. i know shawn's not too happy with his at the moment, but he hasn't even broken them in yet. let us know how you like em.
