    Cheers everybody! Wanted to introduce myself and my wagon from EastTN. 83 FJ60, stock for the moment.
    OME's and 4+Ubolt flip kit on the way. Just got my 33x10.50 BFG MT's last week. It's great to be aboard!

    Agreed KNUCKLES. They were the SuperHigh Foot towers from my old disco. Needed them to haul the MadRiver. I've since traded them for the regular towers from Thule.
    Much, much better.

    Hey Goode! Welcome to MUD! Nice 60. I thought I had the tallest roof rack in TN.

    Is that Goode like the waterski?

    Thanks for the compliments! :) I had a 78fj40 that I almost kept and sold the 60. I just don't have the time and money for two. But I"m happy with my decision to keep the 60. She's in pretty good shape.

    I've done some moderate wheelin. I've been to GSMTR the past 4-5 years, but never had a built rig to hit the big stuff with. Just kinda laid low and watched out for the dings and dents. I've already hammered my rockers on the 60. I've had Blue for a little over a year now, with no mods. Finally got some funds to help her posture and get her ass off the ground. But I've got to get to work on some protection. Sliders, bumpers, etc.

    Here's a pic of the 40 I got rid of last year. Stock springs on SOA with 33x12.50. Toyota mini-truck power steering. Front roll cage.

    Tires went with the 40. SuperSwamper TSL 33x12.50.
    The pic with Blue and the TSL's was from GSMTR last year.
    I swapped meats from the 40 to the 60 for GSMTR to get a little more clearance. They barely rubbed at full flex. I was amazed.
    60 had 31x10.50 Goodyear Wranglers.
    I replaced the Goodyears last week with BFG 33x10.50 MT.
    Looks awesome! Can't wait to get my lift from Kurt at CruiserOutfitters.
    U-bolt flip kit coming from Man-a-Fre.
    I'll get a before and after pic posted the minute I get the OME's put on. WooHoo!!!:D
