DJZ FJ CRUISER

Hi, my name is DJ and I have issues...

Here's my latest. 07 with 117000 miles. Factory rear locker.

One owner car, nice lady, never off road.

I want it to be fully street drive able to were the wife can drive it. But still be able to go hit the sand dunes or easy trails in Big Bear.

I'm thinking an Old Man Emu 3 inch lift with heavy duty rear springs, with 33 inch tires??
Or a 3 inch Icon with coil overs...

It needs a water pump, has a new alternator.
Does it need a timing chain??

I already bought some cool Bosch wiper blades...

Do the Icon much better equipment. I have had both. Get the Expo rear springs. One thing you should really consider is dumping the rear diff they are nothing but problems in the earlier models, 07/09. Get one from 2010 thru much better design and its a plug and play, or buy an after market one.

Thanks man. Can I assume since this rear end has lasted so long it might be a good one? Or is it in the locker that has probably never been used?

Will factory wheels work with 33's or do I need something with more offset?

I would say the locker has never been used. The factory wheels should work fine with 33`s. The only clearance problem might be with the front body mount. But that shouldn`t have anything to do with the wheel offset.
