The frame of Meese's FJ-40 was cut and stretched 3 inches. The rear axle was moved back 8 inches and the front axle forward 2. This gave the Cruiser an additional 13 inches of wheelbase, making it much more stable on tippy terrain than the factory 90-inch wheelbase had been. Todd owns Meese Welding in Yucca Valley, California, and his top-shelf fabrication skills are evident on the six-point rollcage, bumpers, skidplates, spare-tire carrier, and bodywork.
