    I could see that turning into a quad catapult if you hit a good enough bump and your straps are weak.

    Anyway, checking in as a FJC owner on TW! :headbang:

    I really like that color, but not as much as the green! I'm going to get my roof painted flat black at some point... i hate the white roof on my silver FJ.

    Yeah, I'm fine with mine because I'm one of only 2 or 3 Sandstorms in my entire town and definitely the only lifted one. :cool:

    Once I have it paid off I might coat all of my silver/white pieces with black Line-X. But that's a ways off. :rolleyes:

    Yeah, one of the benefits of having a silver FJ is that my handles, mirrors etc all match. :)

    so i have my truck listed for sale and i'm kinda planning on buying an FJ... and building the shit out of it...lol

    is the entire FJ frame boxed, or is it a C channel in the rear like tacomas?

    I would go look for you, but that would consist of me going down 6 floors to the garage in a really slow elevator, which I am too lazy to do right now. But glad to see you want to come over to our side. You thinking LT or what?

    I believe it is fully boxed. In the back there is a nice heavy duty non-cchannel cross member. the factory hitch is simply a plate with a receiver on it that mounts to this cross member where as tacomas have a bar that spans the frame for the hitch. you can see in this picture. this bumper/tirecarrier is only small end caps and a carrier leaving the cross member exposed. in the red box is the cross member and green is the factory hitch.

    right on, thanks for the info

    if anybody feels like crawling under their FJ and snapping a pic of the rear susp and frame just so i can get an idea of how it looks under there i'd appreciate it mucho.

    Search man, search! I would do it for you but I don't have time. Look up the rear suspension/frame of a 4th/5th gen 4runner or an FJ. They're all the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado frame.
