    LOL they came with the truck, I still need to decide what type and how big of a lift I will need although I have already settled on either 35" or 37" tires...

    yeah spring over axle, cut and turn, also the OME dakar springs, I'd also like to move the rear axle back a few inches, I understand this helps decrease pinion angle and smooths out the ride a bit..

    Great, thanks for sharing man. Cool trucks, you like red? Yes, sounds like you got some work to do. They look great.

    Think you'll lose the aux tank if you move the axle back.

    Nice rig.

    looks like you have got a good attitude towards it. i have 36's on mine and stock gearing and it suckkkss offroading with it like that. I would seriously consider lower gears if you intend on wheelin her

    yeah I've been wanting a fj40 for about 12 years now and now that I have one it seems so simple to work on that even I can take on some things i wouldn't have tried on my 60
