Thanks all!! I gave quite a few trips planned for this year. Mainly some historic backroad multiday trips around the abandon ports that litter the shores of Lake Huron and Lake Superior I'll defiantly be posting the trip reports here.

Made some serious head way on my storage system today. Completed the drawer sliders and fridge slide.



I wasn't going to pay over $200 for some 48" full extension drawer slides. I decided to go with skateboard bearing for a total of about $50


Drawer fully extended


The back of the drawer can easily be reached.


Fridge slide...might need to rework this. Fridge comes tommorw so I'll see then, lol.

Amazing FJ!!! Another one of those rigs I'd love to own. How do you like the MTZ's? I am thinking about getting a set for my WJ when I get it lifted. But wondered how they do on the road, mud, ice, snow etc....
Thanks man!
The MTZs have treated me pretty well. They've played well in the deep mud and rocks I encounter regularly. Like most mud tires they hum pretty good on the highway, but I don't mind. I don't drive my FJ in the winter anymore well except for the odd snow wheeling run that being said in the snow they're great! Ice...like most mud tires not so much, lol.
