    Then came the Volant Cold Air Intake.

    I had to switch the headrests to face backwards so I didn't always feel like I was leaning forward.

    Then came the 5% tint on the rear window, and 15% on the front two windows.

    The ReadyLift kit: 2.75" strut spacer lift in the front and the 1.75" add a leaf in the rear.

    The Rancho RS5000 shocks for the rear.

    Then I got it aligned and threw some 31x10.5 Grabber AT2's on my stock wheels. There is slight rub at full lock, but I'm waiting for some spacers to arrive from UPS. I'll post more pics as I add goodies :)

    They are a heck of a lot better than stock, that's for sure. Without the upgrade the stock shock was fully extending and the ride was bouncy because of the aal. Now the ride is stiff over small bumps in the road but soft over large dips. They bolt right up to the stock mounting positions without any problems. I recommend bolting in the top mount first and pulling the shock down into the bracket, it was easier that way.

    Looks good. Ditch the bench.

    These FJ buckets are where it's at fellas. They bolted right in.

    Indeed. Check out my build for how they look in a Taco.

    If you're going from bench to buckets, be warned as in the inner rear bolt hole is hidden underneath the carpet and covered by a piece of black plastic.

    Guys, call up your local LKQ office and see if they can get you a pair.

    Thanks!

    I started googling like a mad man lol. I found the best results from this place

    http://www.car-part.com/cgi-bin/sea...519097&userUID=0&userBroker=&userPage=1&iKey=

    From those search results I reached out to the closest place with the best conditioned seats. I got both for $248.40 shipped to my door, which is next day delivery... so tomorrow from 11am-12pm they arrive! So excited for my next project. Pics to come.
