Steering boxes, bumpers, bouncers, and boost
Every year for our Ultimate Adventure weeklong wheeling road trip we build some off-the-wall official vehicle, and this year we started with a brand spankin' new '07 FJ Cruiser from Toyota. A month ago our Ultimate FJ was on the rack with parts strewn all around it, and now it's done. We'll cover the final steps of the major buildup this month, and then next month we'll tie things up and give you a review of how everything worked on the trail.
When we left off, the Ultimate FJ was still at All-Pro Off Road in Hemet, California, where all the axles and suspension were being replaced with Pro-Rock Dana 60s from Dynatrac. In addition, the standard full-time four-wheel-drive transfer case was replaced with a four-speed Atlas transfer case and custom adapter from Advance Adapters. However, there is still a ton of upgrades we need to show you, not to mention all the little things that needed to be changed to get this rig ready.
