Thanks for the add. I just got into off-roading last year after building my 21 Tacoma. I’m currently in the market for a new build with a FZJ80. Plan is to put 37s at minimum or 40s. Looked at 5 or 6 in the Central FL area. Looking at 3 more this week. Hopefully, find one I like. I’m here for advice and to learn more about them. Looking for information on the things needed to fit 37s or 40s for the build.

I plan on doing similar mods that I did to my Tacoma.

Great looking rig, how is the interior and condition of the engine bay?

Is that drivers side lean due to the parking spot, or camera angle?

I know the OME/ARB springs have been installed wrong in the past. "A" is intended for Australia's driver side RHD and "B" is LHD but when installed here in the States you flip them.

I believe it’s leaning bec of the panhards. They are adjustable but I ordered a lift plate to level the panhard out. i believe it wasn’t completely lifted correctly .
didn’t extend 3 of 7 break lines or add caster plates. Just lifted it 4.5 inches. Suspension lift
