    A lot less friction on the ground equals lees work for the engine. Have a fuul load and put 300 miles on the 285-70-17's seems to work fine.

    No wheel spacers, no re-gear, I'm on a trip and have climbed some real steep grades and did some trail runs and it all worked great. The wheels I have are the stock alloys from my 2007 FJ.

    As soon as BajaRack builds the rack for the shell I'm going to try to configure it for only awnings and for the use of a roof top tent also.

    I wish I would have had time to get the Scepter water and fuel cans to finish the rear out.

    really like the build. What did you do for rear lift? looks a little lower than the front. Ive been contemplating ome dakar leaf pack.

    Looks awesome. Do you have a mpg number yet?

    The front and rear are the Icon remote resevoir coil overs and shocks. the rear has Icon's add a leaf. I need the truck to be level, so after I outfit it with all of my gear we will adjust it to level. I might need to get a spring pack due to the weight I'm going to add. I'll give the MPG a check on the way back down 395. Thanks for all of the compliments.
