FJ62, one of a handful that we have built to such an extreme. Instead of upgrading the suspension and other items, we actually updated all of it by simply buying a 1997 FZJ80 series, and modifying the 80 series chassis to receive the 62 series body. We then fit a 420HP GM LS aluminum V8 and 4L65E automatic transmission mated to the rebuilt stock 80 series full-time transfer case. We further upgraded it with the Old Man Emu 80 series suspension, Slee trailing arms, DBA brake components and more. A Stage Three restoration was performed on everything, with upgraded audio, NAV, seating, textiles, Dynamat sound deadening materials, polyurea coated underside and body floor surfaces, replated original hardware, and all new OEM trim pieces. The lighting was all upgraded to LED’s as well. Great truck!
