The Build: Axle Roseth from the Dead
All men must die. But axles? They can come back.
Prepare yourselves, folks, because this installment of The Build marks a significant turning point for the series. Until now, we've largely been preoccupied with taking parts off our diamond-in-the-rough Toyota FJ62. Starting now, however, we're going to be putting things back on.
With the front axle now sufficiently un-f**ked, Ben Preston & Co. set about returning the front wheels' mutual friend to its rightful place beneath the engine compartment. But before the axle makes its way home, they'll have to rebuild it back to factory-fresh appearance. Which, as it turns out, involves a fair amount of work.
