    I believe he has lifted alcan springs.
    There is a set of stock 60 springs at his moms.

    Nice picture! Lucky to have snow. I would love to do a snow run. Daughter #2 is due 7 Jan so I'll be a game time decision. I think it would be a great time. I love snow runs!

    Don't let my youngest daughter see that turtle, she'll love it!

    Uhh, don't get carried away with the metal art and start building critters out of that H41 that still needs to be installed:D

    The tubing bender is welded and painted, all it needs now is to have the hydraulic ram installed. I will probably do that before the weekend. When can I deliver it to its new home?

    Looks good, except I see lots of DNA left on that upper bolt in your future.

    Pulled more parts of the FJ62. Got the wiring harness out and stripped of the tape. Pulled the head bolts, now I need to pull the rad, fan and water pump, then pull the head to send it to the machine shop.

    Anyone know a good local source to have the injectors serviced?

    Ya that's the part I don't like. I have another idea for the mount or I may flip it.

    I don't have a local guy, but turn around was a week(not during the holidays). Cleaned, rebuilt, flow tested.
    Think the service is in Detroit. I can dig out the info if you want.

    Started in on the FJ62 wiring cull in ernest. What a mess. On the plus side, I learned that the FJ62 was wired for diff locks. Anyone need some relays? I've got a few spares now.

    Installed early LC hubs on the M100.

    Eventually, I hope to run the stock steelies from my 40 but they still have the original 35 yr old tires.

    For now, I have some freebie taco wheels & tires that cleaned up nicely:wrench:
