Sweet.
May want to look into some nice new heavy duty engine splash guards to finish up the wheel well. I just got a set from www.radrubberdesign.com and these are really a vast improvement over the stock ones that crumble away.

I didn't have any semi mudflaps laying around, and several of the push clips were broken too so the pre-cut replacement with all the clips wasn't a bad deal.
If I could find a way to make FJ parts out of laptop RAM or old hard drives, I got that. Smile

Speaking of Engine Splash guards and things that I won at the Summit shortly after purchasing and installing them on my own, I have an extra set of RAD engine splash guards. $20 if you want em.

CLAIMED!!!!

BTW,
First weekend using my Total Chaos UCA's.
My FJ used to wander, and was very fatiguing to drive long distances as you constantly had to correct.

With my new Total Chaos UCA's, I'm able to take my hands off the wheel for 30+ seconds and it tracks straight as an arrow. (Tested on an up and back to Phoenix 250 miles this weekend oh so nice)

Can't wait to test on the trail.
Worth it...

The advantage of using the Total Chaos upper control arms has two major benefits. First is allows your factory alignment to back to stock for larger lifted applications, the stock uca doesn't have enough misalignment. Secondly it will let you have additional down travel because of the unibearing design.
