Part 2: Making Our Trail Truck More Useful, Capable, And Reliable

It's hard to beat the advantages of an FSJ. They're not quite a real fullsize truck and not quite a mini truck so they fit on most trails, yet are big enough to be comfortable. Many FSJs have 1/2-ton truck drivetrain or better including V-8s, stout axles, and truck transmissions. They really don't need much work to be solid trail rigs. For us, the J-truck pickups have several advantages over a typical utility vehicle. The most obvious is more storage space in the form of a bed. Last issue we covered the lift, tires and wheels, and fender trimming of our recycled truck. This issue we we'll cover all the doodads that make our truck a reliable, convenient and capable off-road rig.
