    Default My own FJ40 for inspiration...

    Have been hunting for 2-3 years now in the region. Was originally looking for an FJ45LPB (long bed pickup). Those are fairly expensive even in bad shape because they are still used extensively on farms and fishing beaches here. So I broadened my search to basically include FJ40's and FJ45 Troopies (both of which work better for me so I can take my boys with me). Finally scored one that met the conditions I had... solid chassis, minimal rust, drivable on day one.








    Needless to say, I'm stoked! Now I need to build a scale version. =)

    Thanks man!
    Yeah, I've got a third article for Trails cooking now that gives the whole backstory on this rig. I've been working on this one since September… and only last week managed to get it registered and in my name.

    She's a beaut Clark!

    Article in Toyota Trails? I need to reactivate my membership.

    You've got me motivated... ordered a PerTronix Ignitor II System from cruiser outfitters... there goes all my little toy truck money.
