New Member (with pics) and now description

Hello everyone I just came to a stopping point on my cruiser (upgrade) and found this great forum. I live in New England (ri) here are a few pics of my cruiser- ben

Feel free to check out my site www.bentickner.com/fj40

Before the spec list I would like to say that alot of people from just about every company (sor, man-a-fre, crusier solutions, jegs etc etc) helped me out a great deal with parts and fitment issues. It is a lot of fun to get this rig wet and pull out all sorts of trucks that get stuck.

Answers to your questions-

1. Seats? = Netami Carbon Leather Renegade seats 369.00 for the pair I searched ebay for the best price and called the NY office they hooked me up with a dealer in Arizona (BBT)

2. Vette? = Yes it is mine a Supercharged Z06 (670 HP) 565 rear wheelHP at 6500 rpm. power to weight = 4.7to1 0-60 in 3.3(insert traction) Top speed is well over 220 (184 personal best) All I can say is "itll smoke them at 0 and 75 and everywhere in between" Oh it has had serious stuff done ie tranny, rear end motor......

Here are the specs:

1980 FJ40
Brand new 350 SBC
Detroit Lockers Front Rear
Custom Roll Cage
4" inch lift
33" Mud terrains
Heated Netami Race seats
Safari Snorkel

Whelen Strobes (10) / 911EP Traffic Director
International Belt driven Compressor (180psi) with tank and front/rear fittings
Black Pearl Paint (I painted the truck with the trucks Air compressor)

8000lb Rear Winch
Dual Batteries (front/rear)
Custom dual 3" exhaust

Looks good! I've never been a fan of the color black on a cruiser but this one looks right for some reason. Good job.

Welcome. :flipoff2: (mud salute)

Very cool cruiser. I dig the black with the silver peral. Also I am glad you put a full hard top back on it. I'm not a big fan of the "45" conversions. :rolleyes:

Any furture plans for it? I.E. a new front bumper (hint hint) or less diamond plating? What are the specs on the engine? Stock axles? Gearing? Ect.
