Featured Rig: CO-Jeff's VDB

When talking with other FJ Enthusiasts, one name comes up almost religiously, Jeff T. (CO-Jeff).  His rig is a head-turner, a built VooDoo Blue that has been featured in hundreds of threads, and was the February 2007 Cruiser of the month on FJCruiserforums.com. 

Jeff’s FJ is built to withstand everything he can throw at it. One of the most unique features of this rig is the sound insulation. Jeff used Dynamat to seal and quiet down his entire FJ. He then upgraded all the speakers & the subwoofer, added an amp, and a Pioneer AVIC Z1 to drive this great system.

For front & rear protection, Jeff chose Fab Fours bumpers. While these are not the least expensive options, they provide the function and toughness to handle anything. The front bumper has a very open top for easy access to the winch, 2 welded recovery points, and provides one of the best approach angles of any aftermarket bumper. Jeff added the Warn 9000 winch with synthetic line and a Roktek fairlead for getting out of sticky situations. The coolest feature of the rear bumper is the swing away tire carrier. It can accommodate up to a 40” tire, and swings well out of the way so you can still open the rear door when needed. 

Jeff lifted his truck 3” using a combination of components. He uses DR Coil Overs in the front and DR Rear shocks with custom rear springs in the rear. He added the Total Chaos Upper Control arms for additional strength, and his rear control arms were done by Sonoran Steel. Underneath, is a full set of custom armor from All Phase Off Road, including the All Phase Differential Skid. Up top, Jeff chose the very popular Gobi Ranger with PIAA lights and added Yakima mounts for skis. His tires are the beefy MTZ 33/17/12.5, mounted on the stock steel wheels.

There is no doubt that Jeff’s VooDoo FJ is a go anywhere, do anything truck. You’ll definitely know this FJ when you see it coming, so don’t forget to wave.
