Thanks Adrian! :) Yep, I know that FF still has the FJ Cousins and I did seriously consider buying a pair, but they're wire bead which doesn't get along well with MA40 rims. The Psychos are Kevlar and even they proved rather difficult to mount.

Some updates. I picked up the stem from the powdercoaters over the weekend. It turned out great (pics after I applied new decals):

The tires are Tioga, but not Farmer John's. I hope I don't upset the purists, or Rod. :roll: :wink:


Anyone got a tissue for this drool I got going on? Looks great Mike. Keep the build going!

I believe the FJ cousins were a front tire and the FJ a rear, no?

I have a FJ for free, you are welcome to it.
