If you look closely, you’ll notice that the FJ’s wheelbase was extended six inches. The All-Pro suspension moves the front axle forward one inch, but Miller wanted more wheelbase, so the rear axle was moved five inches rearward. Making the big 42-inch IROK tires on Walker Evans beadlock wheels fit without hitting required radiusing the fenders and modification of the inner fenderwells. Additionally, the rear body mounts were impeding rear wheel travel, so they were relocated from the outside of the framerails to the inside to create more clearance. The exterior of the rig sports a slew of upgrades including All-Pro bumpers and rocksliders; Mad Dog Offroad diamond plate body armor; and a Warn 9.5xp winch with Master-Pull synthetic rope. And because the wheeling doesn’t end at dusk, Miller upgraded his headlamps to HID units, added a pair of Sol Tec HID floodlamps, and installed underbody LED rock lights. The truck was painted flat camo for easy touch up after trail excursions.
