Nice build, def. need to get a set of those motor mount gussets too!

If you don't mind me asking,

Where'd you get the adapter (mini-stub) for to run the 930 CV joint on the inner CV axle?

They came from RCV with the shafts.

Interesting, allowed for 0.5" more travel if I read the above right?

We're getting the full 14" travel with the new inner fender wells. I think the stock CVs had 12 or 13".

I've got an extra set of the RCV "mini-stubs" for a 930 I wouldn't mind selling...just FYI.

Nice build!

Might have to inquire about those after the new year!

Would have to get a new axle shaft made with the proper end for 930 joints (assuming the splines on the shaft are different).

Does the outter joint allow for the full range of motion or is it still restricting?!

Want to say they are 35 spline at both ends of the shaft, but I could be wrong. Know they are different than the OEM shafts spline count. Dave probably knows off the top of his head.

The outter was never never a limiting factor to my knowledge. Inner binding on the shaft at full droop and the rollers pulling out of the cup at bump on the OEM joints were the limiting issues.

Okay, I'm only running a 2" wider kit (All-Pro, but similar to the TC kit you had previously) they advertise 12" of travel, but I really think its limited to about 11"-11.5" and I feel the inner CV joint is the limiting the travel. I'll have to contact RCV and see what they say about it.

If you want to see if its really an issue you can pull your springs and the boot on the inner and cycle the suspension to see what exactly is going on.

The advertised travel numbers just seems to be a dick swinging contest between the various mfgs.

Yeah, most likely going to do that next time I have the truck in the shop, you weren't running the RCV's with TC 2"+ kit, but were your approx. travel numbers?

You noticed that too eh!

@~10.5" of travel the UCA uniball bolt would hit the inner metal fender well and the LCA bolt would want to go through the rotor. Bumped and strapped I think we were looking at ~10" of travel.

Allpro UCA runs a recessed uniball bolt which should buy a bit more uptravel. Never looked at the LCA close enough to see whats going on there.

No, not if you are refering to my FJC...hasn't been west of AZ and resides in Houston. I don't know that Cali will let me in with it as I lost the CARB sticker for the supercharger .


How's your build coming along Bebe? I haven't check this week, but its been awhile since I saw any updates. Definitely a great inspriation for the IFS route to say the least.

A little tweaking - sway bar mounts/angle, got a Ron Davis Radiator made for it...huge improvement.

Other than that I have over 8000 miles on it and no issues :-) The Ruffstuff heims seem to be holding up surprisingly well!

I saw an FJ very similar in Cupertino at the IL4 Parking lot a few months ago. Similar bumper, silver, with the total chaos kit, similar wheels and tires.

This is an awesome build...congrats! I ended up with the same amount of travel, makes a huge difference on the trail

Checking out your build thread right now, Bebe - nice writeup!! I'm trying to come up with some sort of longer-term plan for my FJC and this helps quite a bit, even if it's a Hummer.

Been a while since I've updated on here.








Took it for a spin about a month ago. Didn't get to do much testing as the supercharger is being reworked now.




Rear fenders are on

Center console should be marketed, as well the shifter linkages. The cleanest install I've seen.

What's the plan on the lower rear fenders?

Center console might be offered in composite form down the line. Shifters are available from NWF.

Tenative plan for the front and rear fiberglass is to contour them to eliminate the need for mud flaps. Probably will depend on how tight things are time wise tho with events I plan to attend in April and May.

I am loving that console. If I keep my FJ I may have to look into it.

No doubt. The cleanest I've seen.

Excuse my ignorance, but the shifters sit directly on top the Atlas?

I guess I haven't paid close enough attention to Hornsfan's, but I thought I remembered them being 3-4" aft of the original TC shifter, therefore the reason for the previous linkage statement.

I can't search shit, either. The facade of anonymity the the creative user name provides isn't fairing well with the latest Tapatalk update.

The guys I know with 4 speed Atlas cases are running triple sticks in the stock case shifter opening. They are running cable shifters not linkage.

I'm pretty sure those are cable shifters. Dave and I are looking into doing the molds for a composite version of the console.
