So, I got the gas tank, and transfer case skid pieces from Mike E over on the Blue Room. He was stripping his FJ for sale, and had some factory sponsored stuff, including some pieces from ASFIR. They are an Israel based company, with a US office in Phoenix. No one returns any e-mails, but I plan on calling about the front piece this week.

I really like the clearance of the gas tank and transfer case portion (B3 in first pic). The piece just in front of that (B2 in picture) is 'ok', but needs to have some other bolts to get a flatter surface. I'll be looking for some beveled bolts to replace the hex heads. Also, that piece has an interesting mount for the bolts, where the nut side is a washer/bolt/handle combo, that you feed down through some holes on the top of a frame crossmember, and hold while you get the bolt threaded. Easy to do, but not at all obvious to me without instructions.

So, here are the pic's. first, drawing from their product description on the web.

The crossmember portion of B3 and the small part in front of it is some very thick steel, but all the other pieces are aluminum. I think they are related to RASTA, or are the same company. I'll try to find out when I call this week and update.



My install...











Once I figure out what goes on the front, I'll update. It will be interesting to see how the pieces I have work with a Demello front, or if I get the aluminum front, how it will match up with an after market bumper.

Very Nice, you should PM Blackseabk on the blue forum, I believe he was in contact with the company a while back about the bumper. he may have some info for ya, I like the look, and definitly lightweight being aluminum. But if I had them on trail yesterday they would still be there in little peices. As it is, I will be dropping my Buds down for some sledgehammer cosmetics.

Nice blast from the past. ;D


Thug, install was FAIRLY simple. The steel piece for the back part of "B3" was a beeoottch, but I got it in.


Since this post, I bought a Demello front skid. I had the Demello one modified at a muffler shop, with some tabs on the rear side, with bolt holes. I then cut B2, and drilled holes to match up with the holes on the tabs for the Demello. It looks "OK", but definitely provides plenty of protection.

Not sure if they are still doing business. These are similar to the Rasta, but some parts on the Asfir seem a bit more solid.
