    Thanks zbaldo

    Na, not yet. Cut the fenders today, so much room now. Trying to line up a deal for 35's, have a set of Duratrac's for a smokn deal but would still like a mud tire.

    Next to do is cut and build my leaf pack then install a shackle flip, doing the 6'' trail gear shackle. Want to see how much lift that gives before doing the shock relocate, might try to get a 13'' shock made up or see if a 14 will fit, doubtful tho.

    Thanks Gramps, wasn't too difficult, just time consuming.

    Broke a bunch of fender clips taking them off. Went to Toyota, I know the parts guy well :cool: He pretty much didn't want to give me a price for a good reason, $1.89ea for the blue and $5.50 ea for red :eek:

    Ordered a bunch of amazon but still cost $30 #2ndgenproblems :D

    Sweet! Yeah I got to practice the fender trim on NYCO's truck in my garage. Got a handle on things for when I do mine. Tips we learned doing this were:


    • Buy a bag of clips online (as you did)
    • We added in bolts and wing nuts on the ends of the plastic fenders in place of the clip to insure a sold hold.
    • An electric Sheet metal cutter(HF) cuts the fender very smoothly and very nicely. :D
    • Patent Pending measurement tool coming out soon... :spy:
    I am just happy to see one in my color completed. So I know exactly what it will look like.



    Keep up the awesome work!

    Ya with that the Fj stick would come up right under the auto shifter

    I still haven't done my twin stick shifter yet, I'm thinking about a crawl box next spring so might hold off :anonymous: don't want to cut up my $200 shifter for couple months of use.

    I don't have a 4wd ecu so I can control the front diff actuator (ADD) with a switch essentially its like locking the hub. Then I can just shift my tcase into gear, don't have to worry about all the wiring and electronics with a Tacoma case + the FJ case is stronger and better then the Taco one.

    Still got a long todo list to work on. Been wheelin too much lately

    Inspiration...If I weren't more into my other build I'd be calling you on the daily trying to do the same. That will have to wait for now, great job.
