Hey Matt. I have not made the choice of exhaust manifolds yet. I did a quick check on the stock LS3 manifolds and they may well fit, it's close. If not I like the Hooker cast manifolds. I do not have any miles on the other Hooker Headers I put on the crate 5.3L as I am still waiting on tag and insurance from the owner. It's been sitting for over two months now waiting.
Ever wonder what your 60/62 body looks like underneath? This will be stripped clean and coated with Lizard Skin then a coat of gloss black paint to better repel dirt.
Original paint/clean can be seen in the rear at the fuel sender hatch.
I think the next one I build is going to have radius arms and coils up front. I know guys are swapping in whole FJ80 chassis' under their FJ60's, but I wonder how similar the frames are, if a simple radius arm conversion on the 60 chassis is more appropriate. I don't really want coils in the back of a truck like this, so no need for the whole 80 chassis.
