    Drove to Milwaukee to pick up this 84 Fj60. Got it at a good price and will make it drive-able at first and then see how much I want to modify it. Lots of parts as the PO took it all apart to part out. This then never happened and it sat around for the last few years in a garage. He also did not just hack it all out. He took his time and have all hardware and bolts for everything. All in all in good shape. Already have an Ironman suspension in the garage, and will start on the bottom, doing wirebrush and paint, then suspension, brakes, axles. then get engine put back together, and then interior and body. I have lots of questions......

    Here it is: more to follow

    Cleaned er up some...

    I decided to clean up the inside, after a mouse run over my lap in the cruiser, meaning to get the nest out, not from me soiling the inside dueto the mouse running over my lap.... Took out seats, carpet, wiring. Nice nest under back seat. Also had one in the insulation under the hood. The motor is almost back together to start for the first time. Here are some pics of the progress, after the carpet removal, wire removal and clean up.

    That/s not rust in the back area, just old carpet still stuck, before I got the shopvac to it.

    Keep an eye on your shackle angle.

    Shackle

    Yep, saw that after the install and not too sure about it, but hoping that some weight, and some settling will help with getting it pushed out. Will see how it goes once I start driving it.

    You might consider a +1" (or more) shackle to allow more room for the springs to flex. Also, several of us who went with 4" lifts ended up pulling a spring from the pack to soften the ride.

    Did you remove one from the middle? Since I have yet to drive this thing, I have no idea what it is going to be like.

    My springs are from BTB so there are differences, but I removed the 2nd from the bottom in the rears, and none from the fronts.
