Some pictures just don't do things justice.

Suspension specs: Stockish springs, stock length shocks (which limit front travel) 36" Michelin tires. I don't think flex isn't too bad considering the suspension is basically stock.

looks nice...even with that flex you will still be able to mob over just about anything....remember, it's a 55!!!

one more wheel to go!

The thing climbs pretty well. I'll get more pics from my father in a day or so if anyone's interested.

I've always been jealous of other people's trucks. I think I'm finally at that stage where my favorite truck is my own piece of shit. :D

Still much to do...

adapter Volvo-> Cruiser

This little chunk of steel is what took forever. The Toyota side was easy. Without taking off the flange, the Volvo was a bit more of a bitch...

hey sweet FJ55! I have been wanting to drop Volvo portals under a Nissan Patrol for awhile now.

I am on the other side of Wyo...the mountain side. Yet, if you ever out this way would be great do do some wheeling with you. I have 5 old 60 series Nissan Patrols and a 712m 6x6 Pinzgauer. We have some good local trails, your welcome any time!

Sweet, I'm sure I speak for most people when I say I wish I had portals!

Get some longer shocks for some more droop and your rig will be damn near super badass!
