All that and no pictures!?!?I got the OME lift on, with J springs in the front and mediums in the rear, with the nitro sport shocks. the Aussie locker is in and its working great. It was a minor ASS pain putting it in because I forgot the shims and had to do it twice. I cant hear it clicking at all when turning the corner. I also got the 255/80 r17s with new style FJ cruiser round hole wheels on the truck. My FJ and FJC now have matching wheels and can be swapped around. The FJC now has 285/75r17 Nitto's thanks to Murf. Once my Metal Tech bumper arrives the 80 will be as complete as its going to get until I win the lottery.
Oem scoop?I got alot of Cruiser stuff done today:
The 80 had a shimmy when braking, found out the front rotors were warped and already under spec so didn't want to resurface even further. Installed new rotors, packed the front wheel bearings, new seals and pads while at it. Good to go!
The 40 had an underhood light that was in need of replacement. I found a similar light and wired it in this evening. Waa-Laa! let there be light
sounds like the needed tools are two Jacksons!It was time to address the charcoal canister. I was done with smelling gas and high pressure at the gas cap!
I went the rebuild route to see what was in the can and why it quit working. Found a valve clogged and unclogged it and replaced the charcoal. Looking back a better/cheaper option would be to buy the replacement from Vatozone VC-120 for ~$40. The conclusion came after spending too much time and $12 on replacement charcoal.
The rebuild required removing the charcoal canister, grinding off the lip, replacing the charcoal, and tack welding the can back together. Simple if you have the tools needed.
