A swapped Toyota

Illustration for article titled A swapped Toyota

I’ve always liked the Toyota FJ Cruiser cast.. its well detailed, has complete tapos, just the right ride height... but its wheels were a little thin, it looked a little off. So I looked for another cast with around the same size of wheels.

I remember that I had this Jeep Wrangler... took a few measurements, then I took it apart. (see the wrangler below).

It wasn’t a perfect fit... it seems that the chassis of the FJ was a little wider than the Jeep, the wheels wouldn’t even fit. So I had to cut a little of the chassis, then sand off a little of the wheel wells.... only then did the wheels “click” into place.

Tomicas are the best when it comes to changing wheels.... both the front and rear axles are held together with a metal clip. No screws and no drilling required... they’re so easy to swap. :)
