As a part of good sponsorship. Andries sent out another set of shocks with slightly heavier valving for me to try out. This was all their suggestion. What makes this notable is the strive for the optimal set-up for heavily modded rigs. I will install them this week to try them out. I think my set up is awesome, but sometimes, you don't know better, till you feel it.
I am delighted with the attention to customer service I have experienced with Overland Warehouse.
On a side note.
I received my new diffs Friday. The rear is done and full of oil. I even threw on some new break pads. The front had a few challenges. I was not physically able to lift it into position by myself. The help I was suppose to get couldn't make it. I struggled with a jack and the wife controlling the height and never accomplished it. Finally this morning, I got fed up and started to think outside the box. I scavenged for a few ratchet straps, one end connected to t-case cross member the other end attached to the front d-rings and used the 2 straps to cradle the diff, so I could weasel it into place. Now I just need to put the front back together and I can begin the break in period .

Don, as a CCTV Tech, I must say Awesome job with the fit and build! I have had cams on my FJ but as you know the things aren't cheap.... so my system is STILL in the works. I have tons of a kick arse ideas for camera locations.

the josh, dude if ya don't like FJs hand out in the runner forums, I don't care what someone drives, just wheel it!

After a computer failure, I lost complete track of the 120 forum .
I found it again after I found "the josh" build on Expedition Portal.
I still have my original white FJ, but bought a brand new 2013 Cement TT , in December. I have been moving some of the good stuff from wikid, suspension too.
The Radflo stuff has been doing well, for as long as I have had it. it's too bad OW had to shut down.
I will start a build thread over here for the new one soon.

thanks
Don
