It took my reading the FJ forums before I realized that was Amanda's FJ. That thing sure has changed since I ran hells revenge and moab rim with her last year.

Looks good. How did you get the brakes hooked up? Stock master bypassing the ABS system?

Yea it should be up on some fj's now I'd put it up against the Ultimate adventure rig. Can't compare the the 60's and 40's though... just the the way it's put together and how it acts on the trail.

The brakes are just hooked up normal. Since the rear is stock it might still work kinda. The front brakes work great they just won't have abs input and ABS is for people that aren't "drivers" anyways

I told Amanda that I have some ideas on how to make the computer happy. Once I get mine back (hopefully next week) I will work on it. If I figure it out, I'll come up and we can make her's work as well.

Looks really good Phil!

How big is the 2.7 crawl box? Did it all bolt up or did you have to cut the gas tank or anything to get it to fit?

Wow Tim did a great job!!!

If you need some help on Sun with your heap let me know cause labor day is round the corner and we will be initiating some prospects and ol grasshopper will be wearing a dress!

Don't know how much help I can be but I can hand ya tools, drink beer, grind stuff, and fight fight off environmentalists trying to infiltrate the silly compound of mass silly fabrication.
