Title: Short dunes outing
Post by: David van Breda on December 20, 2011, 11:40:38 AM
After I eventually gotten the new tyres and suspension kit fitted, I sneaked away for a weekend to put the FJ through its sand-paces! 
WOW, it is impressive.  And the power delivery at sea-level (as opposed to 6000feet) ensured I drove around with this silly grin on my face all weekend long!:)

Not the prettiest rims but the only I could find that fit.  285/75R16 KM2's!
