Well if you make it out this way lmk my truck will be down on and off the next few months but I'm sure we can make some wheeling happen. We have an Fj cruiser too

Haha, and if you come out to CA there are tons of awesome trails but my truck can't do a fair number of the best ones...so we should just all go to CO where the trails that I've heard of are good and we can drool over Russell's beast

This truck is awesome! I love the interior swap. How did you do the FJ gauges? I was thinking about that while driving one into work the other day.

Thanks!

The Fj gauges have been a a pain. I'm still still stumped on the last wire for the ambient temp sensor. I'm pretty sure its goin to take me robbing the AC amplifier from the Fj and run it standalone for the gauge. In a newer taco or a rig with an AC amplifier that runs and ambient temp sensor you wouldn't have to swap it but my 00 Tacoma won't allow it. Other then that the harness is figured out. I have to make some time to snag that from the Fj and the harness is figured out.

The stereo controls are finished I just need to upgrade the stereo to allow it to work. My alpine is a little out of date.

Anyone good with photoshop? As part of my rebuild I'm refinishing my wheels. Thinking about powder coating the beadlock rings the same bright white as the truck(super white) I'm going to leave the gold bolts. Wondering if anyone could photoshop the rings white to see if it will look good

I have been slacking on the updates!!!
List of things to post about and get pics up of...

Door panels have been covered to make sure when the interior guy does it nothing rubs... Doesn't look half bad tho.

Stainless header from trail gear.
New cat and header back exhaust using Fj cruiser stock muffler to quiet it down a bit.
Double din touch screen pioneer.
Hydro assist to be installed but its next for mock up.

Motor coming out soon
