That came out fantastic!

The urges to do a 4x4 of some sort myself are strong...and you all aren't helping either by posting your updates.

I'm actually driving it now... still with the 2F and 4spd. Ordering parts this week for the LS conversion but probably will wait for winter to take it back apart... (I know, why didn't I already have the parts here... had to make sure the wife was still behind it after a year in interior jail)

It really is different to drive, the "handling" takes some getting used to. We have all new Emu springs and shocks and while I think the ride quality is really good for what it is.... it does seem to "wallow" a bit when getting on and off the throttle. We discussed going to a larger wheel / shorter sidewall tire but I'm resisting because I really like the look it has now... I did order a set of sway bars to try, off road articulation will never be a concern at the mall.....

Finally after many many nights and weekends of absolute fun in the shop, our FJ is back driving!!
Took it up to the GoodGuys Kentucky Nationals for her debut, had a fantastic time!! Folks were very positive about it and we heard some great FJ stories. The GG folks gave us a Mequiar's Magnificent Masterpiece award and took lots of pics.

Thanks guys!
Lance, interior was done by a guy local to me. Works in a stereo shop doing leather swaps in new cars for dealerships. AMAZING talent but cant get clients... he's not one of the "known" hotshots so people either won't hire him because they cant brag a name...or they think he should should do it for nothing because they're "helping" him out...
