Moes "Scavenger"

Well she used to be named "Sandi" but that was before she grew up and got some rails...I bought the rails used on here from bph (thanks by the way) and then I bought the used spacer lift from FJ-Ollie (thank you too). We figured that I was on here 24-7 looking for some affordable used parts to dress "Sandi" up and make her look a little tougher so that's when we came up with the name, "Scavenger" since I scavenge for parts! haha I have to thank FunJunkie for helping me out with the lift install and being patient while we waited for Ollie to show up with the parts! haha But Junkies neighbor John kept the beers coming so it was no big deal! haha Well after we got the parts it took a little longer than we had planned but had plenty of beer and John fired up the bar-b-q for us so all in all it was a great Sunday spent with new friends and fellow FJ lover FunJunkie...Thanks again Mike!!! Well I'm posting a couple pics, I know it's not much of a build-up but I figure I'll just keep updating this as we keep finding more used parts for "Scavenger" Thanks and look forward to seeing ya'll at the M&G

Re: Moes "Scavenger"

OK, here's the pics from yesterday at FunJunkies place putting the lift on her...nothing exciting so don't expect much...you've been forwarned!
Before lift

After Lift

I'm walking outside to take another profile shot so you can see the her full body, before and after...

Painted my mirrors and door handles today...didn't have too much time so I may have to re-spray them at a later date...

Re: Moes "Scavenger"

Thanks for the comments guys, I appreciate it. As for what's next...I'm not sure...what are you getting rid of for cheap so I can re-furbish it and make it..."new to me" haha Actually I may have the TRD CAI this weekend and the next buy will be Shoes...I like the lift but need tires with a little more aggressive tread so if anybody out there has anything they wanna let go cheap let me know. I'll give you my stock duellers too! Hope everyone had a great Monday!

Re: Moes "Scavenger"

Glad those worked out ok for you. Looks great. That took your FJ to max lift without going to a full 6". Might want to take it for a front end alignment when you get a chance.

Re: Moes "Scavenger"

Hey thanks Ollie...I'm taking it in for the alignment this weekend. I've read about different specs and stuff on here and was wondering if my fj should be set to the factory settings or if there are different settings that it should be set to after having the lift installed? Thanks for any info...and my girlfriend says thanks for the lift, she loves it!!! ;D

Moses, your rig is looking good. We almost had twins until you lifted and blacked out. Mine will be lifted soon and I am adding mods here and there. Nice bro!

Re: Moes "Scavenger"

Thanks fjc8871...I'm not done blacking it out, still gotta do the front bezel that goes around the lights and the bumper wings...I might redo the mirrors and handles...It was a quick job, my girl went wine tasting and I had a little time on my hands so I decided to do a quickie...not bad though just a couple missed spots!!
The mod is a crazy addiction thing...I can't stop looking online for parts and ideas...it's fun though and the people in here are great...I've only met a few guys but they've been great guys and am looking forward to meeting most of them on Saturday at the M&G!!!!! It's gonna be awesome...you gonna be there?
