    Just started

    Just started my adventure in the FJ Cruiser world. Iíve been blasting through the desert at 110mph for years. Time to slow down a bit and see some of that desert that we flew over in the Army Of Darkness.
    Iíve had this FJ for 2 weeks. ARB bumpers will be here in a few days along with a big front axel.

    A Currie rock jock solid front axel.
    Iíve got a transfer case and a rear axel already here.
    If all goes to plan, weíll be pulling the body off ol girl and melting a couple of axels under it in a month or so

    I was wondering if that's what you meant. Should be a beast!

    Should be, lots of weird little things to fab and figure out. Iíve seen and talked to some other dudes that have done it.
    Iím looking forward to getting it done. Just not looking forward to driving my pickup again. This little thing is fun to drive

    That's badass !

    Usually when people come in new ( myself included ) they are asking about 5100's vs a spacer lift. You are just going for it right out of the gate. Please keep us updated with the build.
