DESCRIPTIONThis one of a kind FJ40 came in as an un-finished project with lots of room for improvement. The body consists of an aircraft aluminum tub made by Aqualu, the tailgate and doors are also aqualu units. The body has just been professionally painted in Arctic white. Frame and suspension is all powder coated. Powere comes from a 2007 Chevy 5.3 HO engine making over 330hp backed by a 4L65E transmission and Atlas II transfer case. Exhaust features a high temperature ceramic coating and a polished stainless muffler. The custom aluminum console houses an Art Carr gate shifter and twin sticks for the Atlas as well as controls for the ARB front locker and on-board air compressor. The impressive roll cage is tied into the shock towers, rocker guards, and front hoop and the frame has been fully boxed for strength. Proffitt's cruisers built a custom toyota based front axle using truck knuckles, longfield's high strength axle joints,an ARB air locker and heat treated axles turned by billet high-steer arms. Front suspension is a custom radius arm setup using high strength ballistic joints and poly bushings. The front-end is controlled by a saginaw power steering conversion and 12" travel Bilstein remote reservoir shocks with dual rate coil springs. In the rear a custom axle was made using a high-pinion Dana 60 with reverse-cut 4.10 gears and a 35 spline detroit locker. a triangulated 4-link was employed with high strength spherical rod ends and a tubular axle gusset / mount. 14" travel remote reservoir coil-overs were used in the rear with a custom enclosed shock tower. Stopping power is more than adequate with 4-wheel power disc brakes. Inside the cabin the engine is monitored by autometer gauges. Heat and A/c are provided by a custom under-dash setup. The console is wrapped in black leather. GPS navigation, CD player and ipod control are available options. Cobra racing seats are installed on a tubular mount, and an optima redtop battery powers the electricals from under the driver seat. Finishing touches are just being added. This custom FJ40 is ready to test drive. Please contact us now!
