    Didn't ever really think I'd need one of these but the transformation has begun.....I bought this truck brand new and it was the first vehicle I'd ever bought new, I wanted to mod it as I come from a BMW background and frequented track days and just loved working on and modding cars but I wanted to wait a while and let the truck break in a bit....I kinda went big and got all this stuff at the same time but when you do something you just gotta do it....Follow the build and other stuff on instagram @_jim_bob and follow my youtube channel that has trip recaps and timelapses from my
    trips: www.jimbobbarnett.com

    I love Mammoth! I've never been there with my truck. I used to go every year for the fishing, climbing, mountain biking, etc. I'm trying to get up there with my wife next leave block I take, any trails you highly recommend. Also love the truck and like where you are looking to take it. The white looks so clean.

    Truck looks awesome! :cheers: So much better with a lift huh? Now to get some armor on it.... Just curious why you did extra trim packers instead of getting 887s. And also where is that gnarly stair climb photo from? The dirt makes me think Utah...pretty steep stuff! Hoping to finally hit Laurel Lakes and other trails in Mammoth this year, thanks for the great tasty photos!

    887s are sold out nationwide right now until late April and I am impatient haha. Dan at wheelers said its the exact same thing as 887s so I went for it. Sliders will be done in may and skids should be here then too! Laurel lakes is super fun, I go to mammoth like 8x a year haha, those stairs are in sedona Arizona though.

    I mean the clearance is very close to the spindle arm up to the UCA but it's not required. I offroad my truck pretty hard and right now not sure I trust spacers....

    Yea man me too, Beavis's truck was a big inspiration for my truck obviously haha.

    Thanks! I'll be posting more photos this weekend after I do some more work installing u-bolt flip kit and extended brake lines.

    Thanks for the comments, installed my wheelers stainless braided extended lines this weekend. This ended up taking way longer than expected due to not realizing you need to remove and dremel out the brackets....

    I've been putting off installing my wheeler's brake line. I really just wish they were plug and play. Have you looked into doing the TRD center cap mod on your wheels?

    Basically it allows you to replace the stock center caps on the TRD OR wheels with the TRD center caps from the FJ Cruiser SE wheels. It's definitely an aesthetic thing, but I did it on my stock wheels and think it gives them a little face lift. Just figured I'd see what you thought of it since you're keeping the stockers like me. Here's the thread link:

    pretty red lines! Yeah, after reading horror stories on here about how they are not plug and play, I decided to let the pros deal with the dremeling and making them fit. I think I would have thrown a fit otherwise. how's the MPG with the lift and the 285s now? I currently get 14-15mpg and up to 19mpg on the highway for long trips with my 3" and 265s. I think I may just bite the bullet and say who cares and go up to 285s anyways because I LOVE the way your truck looks!
