And "The Rock" build. actually begins 

After driving my new project home, while planning its transformation, it hit the driveway and the transformation begins. I already had well built Radflo suspension on my other FJ. Of course, doing all the work myself is mandatory. After having the suspension rebuilt while adding compression control with remote resi's I transferred the suspension, transferred wheels/tires over, then the deconstruction begins.

1Week home, I gutted the interior, so I could do my usual sound deadening and stereo upgrades. Something to be said about seeing all the new car smell, in the garage instead of the truck

Doors, entire floor, roof and all up the sides

Some of the destruction, pre wiring .Sorry . When I get busy doing all the work, sometimes the pictures don't turn out as well. I think I need a dedicated photographer :-)

Picking up some new equipment for the new sound system I love this amp, It allows you to add lots of punch to the system, with a smaller footprint. Being a 5 channel, I was able to save room

A Kenwood 9990HD It was the latest greatest at that time

Infinity Kappa's After some research and listening, they were a great choice and gave the sound I wanted . Not pictured was the JL Audio Stealth Box, I transferred from my other build. Along with the sound deadening, this was a very nice sounding system

Next phase will be lighting

Interesting for you
