2017: My Year In Photos

I’m pretty sure I can officially call this post a “tradition” now. Or maybe I have before, I can’t say for sure. A year ago was, well, a year ago, and a lot has happened since… and in more ways than one. 2017 was a unique year: it was one in which I promised myself […]

From Anza Borrego to the Salton Sea

California is a big state. It’s larger than most realize, I’d wager, with “NorCal” and “SoCal” only taking up the bottom half of the state. With its size and location comes one of the most geologically-diverse places in the world, and the most biologically diverse state in America. From the highest point in the contiguous US, to the […]

The Daily Grind – Setting Up an E28

It was a few weeks ago, with the shop door wide open, that a fellow BMW enthusiast spotted the slew of E28s inside the StanceWorks HQ. Driving an absolutely gorgeous 535iS of his own, he pulled up outside, eager to talk shop and gather opinions. It wasn’t long before he asked about suspension options, having […]

The StanceWorks-Family SEMA 2017 Recap – Part I

We can safely say it: we’ve survived yet another SEMA. Even after attending my ninth SEMA this year, they don’t get any easier. It’s a week-long challenge for the feet, the joints, and the liver, thanks to alcohol-fueled antics that follow the show each night. This year was a resounding success, not only for ourselves […]

The Daily Grind – The StanceWorks LS-Swapped FJ60 Land Cruiser at Lake Cachuma

This year, our annual trip to Monterey for the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion was made a bit more special, having taken my own truck up as opposed to the comfy leather seats of a new BMW. There are upsides and downsides – but in any case, it was the first journey, or first major trip, […]

Legends Never Die – Rusty Slammington – The Unkillable BMW E28

It was nearly two years ago that Rusty was finally unveiled: the cover was pulled back and the latest iteration of a car-turned-legend was shared with the world at SEMA, 2015. However, two years of hard work was poured into the car, only to be followed by nearly two years of radio silence, relegating the […]

StanceWorks Off Road – Land Cruisers in Big Bear

In the days leading up to the famous Monterey Car Week, we took our Land Cruisers up for some trail fun in Big Bear, CA, to escape the heat. With our project FJ60 complete, Jeremy Whittle’s FJ62 tuned up, and our old project FJ62 now in the hands of Andrew Sylvia, it was a perfect […]

The Daily Grind – Musings From Monterey

It always seems as though August is the busiest month of the year. With SEMA rapidly approaching, our project builds take off, just as the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion arrives. Balance that with the tail end of show season, travel, and the StanceWorks day-to-day, and we’re hoping you feel a bit of pressure with us. […]

Breaking Trail – The StanceWorks Project 6.0 LS-Swapped FJ60 Land Cruiser Heads to Big Bear, CA

It’s been almost six months since I purchased my FJ60, following an accident that rendered my FJ62 Land Cruiser a total loss. I purchased this particular FJ60, bone stock, for two reasons: it’s completely rust free, and it is, if you ask me, the best color the chassis ever came in. After all, there’s a […]

Paint Correcting our FJ60 Land Cruiser with Turtle Wax

Two months ago, we took to our project FJ60 with a slew of Turtle Wax goodies, and with a bit of elbow grease, showed how one man’s farm truck can be another man’s treasure. After reaching all of the nooks and crannies, we made the interior of our Land Cruiser shine, chances are, the most […]
