HIGH TRIBUTE H2

This FJ40 Land Cruiser showcases how you can use Atlas leaf springs to change a rough riding classic 4x4 into a daily drivable trail machine without having to resort to coil overs and link style suspension. The goal of this Land Cruiser was to reuse as much of the original design that made these old 4x4s great in the first place while taking a more modern approach to suspension and aspects of the drivetrain. The ride of this 40 series Cruiser rivals that of modern 4x4's with flex that maxes out a 30 degree RTI ramp!
