    Default Wrencher Builds another FJ. why cuz i like em.

    Been collecting parts and tinkering on this one for a while now. I have had chassis built for 2 months or more. Finally decided to start building seriously on it. first thing to do was make some metal bits. Roof rack, roll Cage and swing out tire carrier.

    Chassis is a Gelande 2 with leaf spring conversion. front bumper is from a sawback and the rear is a CChand piece. I just don't like the big round tail lights on the bumper in the kit. I did change out the skid plate and move it a head a bit to center the tcase a little more and it now uses equal length drive shafts front to rear. then replaced the shocks and relocated the rears to clear the floor. of course I painted them Monroe yellow.











    more to come.

    Chris.

    Thanks Matt. I was trying to make it look aged so i figured an old decal would help. Plus i have a bunch of those left over from the old days.
