    Fj Cruiser build (CT Motorsports)

    We've been working on an FJ Cruiser build in the shop. I figured I'd throw up some pics of the progress. Hopefully this doesn't violate any forum rules (being a shop). This is not a rock crawler by any means. The front axle is still IFS but our customer is thinking of switching it out later on if he doesn't like the performance of it. The truck is sort of a hybrid between a desert race and a crawling suspension. The rear axle is still a stock Toyota rear in the first stage of this build. In the future we foresee something beefier if the owner decides to wheel it hard enough.

    Here's the truck with the rear axle and brackets stripped out.


    Inchworm T-case


    Upper link mount tacked in with control arm for mock up.


    Axle upper link mounts in place.


    Triangulated four link mock up.


    Checking clearance for the Currie Anti Rock.


    Fuel Cell.


    Rear cage/suspension mounts.


    Hydraulic bump stops in place.


    Tuning the suspension. The kicker shocks are not installed in this picture.

    The customer is thinking about it. We want him to wheel the truck for the season and then do the SAS over the winter. We would change out the rear axle at the same time.

    We've been working on it during slow sessions at the shop. There is about 80-100 hours into the truck right now.

    I hope that sway bar is pretty stiff or that thing will just flop over on a side hill... Should have tried to keep the shocks further out on the axle and take up less interior space.

    The rear shocks are Radflow and the front are Icon (he already installed them before)

    We couldn't mount the shocks out any further without modifying the rear frame which the customer was not prepared to do at the start of the build. We'll see how she runs. Our customer is beginning to open up to more mod ideas so you never know what he'll decide on next.

    The SAS will probably happen after the season. As for tubing, we are working on the front portion of the cage. The front bumper is finished (yes, it's tube) and the rear tire brace is almost done (tube as well)

    Here's a few flex pics of the rear




    The shocks still have about 2" of travel and the bump stop has 2.5". We need tot trim the flares to clear the tires.

    I should stop by more often. The build looks great thus far.
