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!


Looking better after the lift.


Heading west to the Atlantic 230miles away past the Spitzkoppe


First stop in the dunes...220feet up from the beach!














New warning to the brave!

If you not getting stuck, you not trying hard enough!   >:D
