Ya there are not many clubfrontier/thenewx thread info out there on the TJM coilovers. Your only other option for non-heim joint coilovers are the bilstein adjustable 5100's then...I just sent PM with a guy selling some.
I just got my "used" Radflo's back from being rebuilt by Radflo (yet to be installed). My plan for this coming winter/road salt is to spray the Radflo's as much as possible with Triflo lubricant and of course car washes.

Edit:
There are also the Rancho coilovers but I have seen a lot of negative threads on those ...leaking after a year or two.

I have the TJM coilovers, they're not bad and I beat on them pretty good. They redesigned the lower mount and made it more beefy. I also have the rear TJM gold shocks. These will probably be for sale soon since I now have rear radflo resis and rodflo extended coilovers on order.

No real updates, the doctor cleared me of any lifting restrictions on the 25th, but she said I would still have about 6 weeks of my arm getting back to 100%. I'm still having some minor pain if I over work, but pretty much as of last weekend my right arm now gives me less grief than the left. I'm waiting until after labor day to schedule the left arm. I don't want to ruin my summer.

I'm almost fully decided the front suspension will eventually be Titan swapped with Tundra 5100's with 4runner springs and the custom top hat as per Galmisdude's info (thanks again kind sir). I plan to keep my truck (knock on wood) for many years and I want to do things once and the way I really want. Any other front end work will NOT be what I truly want.

As far as armor, I'm thinking of not buying sliders and rear bumper and building instead. I do not like any rear bumpers available and sliders are a dead simple design, so, I feel money spent on a tube bender would be better. My other project truck is going more in a hot rod / trophy truck direction, so that will need a cage and other things as well.

Does anyone have any pictures of where the slider mounts and the aftermarket skid plates meet up? I was hoping to wait on the skids and build the sliders first. Or, which skid plate do I need to worry about in regards to the slider mounts.

The only skid that might need to be taken into consideration with custom sliders is the gas tank skid, as it's the only one that bolts to the bottom of the frame rail. The other skids just bolt to various crossmembers.

Really friggin' terrible cell phone pics but it should give you an idea. This is a Hefty skid with custom sliders.

Awesome! You are my favorite person today. I might just order up a gas tank skid then. Looking to do the Aluminum Hefty skids.

Amazing how busy life can be sometimes.

Done lots of thinking and planning, and researching, I've had a few discussions with my wife about logistics for GONE 2017, researched CB radios, been studying for my ham license. Today I spent some time crawling around the truck planning out my Blue sea fuse box install. Hope to put some time in to that this long weekend.

Did some work on the Blue Sea fuse panel. I'm going the route this fella did on his FJ. I wanted the panel to be keyed power and not always hot. I'll trip the two relays off a keyed power source.

12-Circuit "Switched" Fuse Block (Installation w/ pics) - Toyota FJ Cruiser Forum

The panel is a 12 circuit with a separate grounding bar.





pop the back cover off and you reveal the busbars. The long one is the one that you must split.



Both busbars simply unscrew and a quick zip with the angle grinder separates the parts.






I ran a 12ga wire between what was the ground terminal and the portion of the positive busbar that was split off. The grounding terminal becomes a positive terminal and now attaches the other 6 circuits.



I plan to run CB and Ham (planning on both eventually) and low amp items off the top 6 and any higher amp draw items off the bottom.

I've got the 40 amp relays and am still working out how all of this gets mounted under the hood.

And, saw this thing while trolling instagram, had to order. It arrived yesterday.













G2-5" Folding Firebox Stove

Not a need, but for the price it adds some convenience when camping.
