Running stock frt fj40 springs. Moved the frt spring hanger 2 inches past the end of the frame rail. Then welded in the frt bumper on top of the 2 inches that was sticking out.

Hey it looks great but, I worry about the cruiser axles with 39.5 TSL's and all that gearing. Have you beefed up the shafts at all?

The axles will be next on the list (after I flip my bezel over). I upgraded with longfields but still have stock inners. the rear is a fj60 ff stock.

I can hear axles snapping from here.

Personaly I would go with a wide track D30 Front with a D44 rear. Should be more than adequate for that rig..
