CB are inexpensive and great for sharing the trail with friends (I have a Cobra 75 kit from right channel: http://www.rightchannelradios.com/co...-road-kit.html), however they are VERY limited in range.

I my self am looking to get my Ham Radio Lic and add one to my rig. HAM radios have a ton more coverage. There is a good thread on HAM Radios on the FJ Cruiser Forum here:

http://www.fjcruiserforums.com/forum...ers-guide.html

You can find a testing area local to you on this site:

http://www.arrl.org/find-an-amateur-...e-exam-session

also you can buy a book to study for the test on Amazon or sometimes there are local classes in your area.

Ok so I am thinking of doing a raptor conversion this summer.
Right now I am looking at suspension. What are your guys opinion?
Fox 2.5, Icon 2.5 or King 2.5 coilovers?

We exclusively use King .... they are what we run with all of our kits, as well as on our race trucks.

Picked up 2 12in led strips today at the local oreielys. Got them on sale and wired them into a cigarette lighter plug in.

Haven't heard anything from you in a while. Done anything to the truck lately?

Here's the bumper and the CB. I know I know don't laugh at me for only having a 5000lbs winch on it. It's only temporary haha. Also the bumper I made myself. Not 100% done yet. Still need a skid plate and a few other things.
