Hello, I'm Brian
Located in Denver for the past 12 years after moving from Washington State. Finally got my 8/76 FJ40 about a year ago after wanting one for as long as I can remember. Been learning alot and doing the work myself so far. Spent alot of time over on ih8mud.

How she looked when I brought her home

How she looks now

And during the summer

Still have a few things to do before I venture to far from home with it. Knuckle rebuild, Drive line extension, and a little tune up.

My DD, just put an OME lift on it too

Awesome 40. My first FJ40 was that same color, but it was a rusty beast compared to yours!

Welcome! :beer:

Maybe if it was a Taco or mini...:bolt:

Thanks for all the comments on the 40. I really like it and am hoping to get out in it a bit more. I looked for a long time for it. It has the 2f in it with about 112000 miles, runs good probably just a tune up and maybe a carb rebuild. I still have the winch but haven't put it back on yet.
