Sounds so top secret you magazine article!

When does phase 1 start? What about phase 2? When does phase 7 start? I'm most looking forward to phase 19!!!!

I did not use OME. I replaced the airbags, this was not a small project. I used Iron Man 4x4.

Those are Goodyear Duratracs, 285/75/17, which are just shy of 34"

Cool to see someone use something other than OME (not considering coilovers). Looking forward to the build as I'm slowing building my GX as well.

Who carries Iron Man products in the US and what shock/coils model#'s did you use? I love the way it came out and would love to do the same.

Thanks!

I will share a lot more detail when I get it back. I want to actually wheel it and approve of the performance before I chat it up too much :)

Just got it home. Rides amazing, looks amazing. I am really glad I opted for the completely custom sliders vs. trying to make something else fit.

That looks great!! Nice job. Don't forget to post the shocks and coils after you wheel it.

Yep! We go next weekend and the weekend after that. I will share a whole lot more then. This is a full replacement with real coils and shocks all around...including completely fabricating the rear spring system. It also has a full skid plate system made of aluminum and some really amazing one of a kind sliders with some MAJOR beef to them.

Man, I really need to start building up my GX as well! I've been putting much time into my FJ80 and the GX has been neglected all week.

Phase II for the GX will be even better...front bumper, dual batteries, winch, snorkel, and some other odds and ends. Just have to save up!

I replaced the front coils and shocks with Iron Man 4x4. The front upper control arms are Total Chaos.
