    Looks like we are going to get dumped on this week. One thing I have always wanted to do was to learn to operate a snow plow.

    What kind of work.... Most of the Local FJ Cruiser Guys go to Autopractor in St. Charles Il. Gary the owner knows them well and has done over 25 lift installs in the last year from www.fjcruiserforums.com

    This will work thanks. I just want options for when I upgrade my suspension or if I need to do anything else major.

    Don't you already have the Baja Edition Suspension? Why change? Maybe some Timbrin Bump Stops front and rear, but the rest leave alone! !! You have a 2" lift from stock already!

    Yeah I am going to leave it for now. I just added over 140+ pounds to the front of my truck. Plus I want full skids, Rear bumper with swingout, bed rack and roof rack. That is a lot of weight to not touch the suspension.



    Good to know. I might hit you up for a custom roof rack in a couple months. Do you have a shop or are you out of your garage?

    My own garage. Currently swapping Dana 60's under my 2005. I have plasma/MIG/bender etc. I did supraTT full hydro as well. I have some pics a few pages back of my work.

    Sweet that is awesome. I would love to be able to build my own stuff.


    Nice I thought there wasn't anyone really around. I live in the Yorktown apartments right next to the mall.
