Starting to look for a rig for Sarah and having 5 trucks at my house (not Ige's or Mike's) is a lot. besides, I hardley drive it. If I sell the 40, I can then get that supercharger for the LX450 and some other toys.

$8500 or $8000 without the STC soft top and 2 piece soft doors (With Hard Top at both prices).

For $9000, I'll even flip the Bezel for you.

All the maintenace is up to date and this truck needs nothing. My next project would have been to regear and put 35's on it. Re-gearing not needed for 33's

I drive 70+ on the highway with no issues.

So Ken, your buddy's going to pass on your's so he can buy my FJ55? :p:

He doesn't know what he wants yet. I directed him to here and Mud and gave him links to the toyota FAQ. He wants to go away for a week with his wife and two dogs. I told him the 40 wasn't for him. I had been debating about selling it for a while, and I decided today to go ahead.

Yeah, I'm leaning further towards that myself. :eek:

By the time I actually finish my 40 (2020 AD?) I'll be the only one in the club ;)

Jeez, that's what I was thinking :lmao:

I can't believe it Romer... You always have to have a 40 (or 5) in the stable.

40's are only to be sold at estate sales. You are selling way before it's time!

This way I'll be able to get Sarah a decent truck and a supercharger for me.

In a few years when Sarah goes away to college I plan on doing another 40. This one will be from the ground up. Starting with a cleaned and painted frame, new body and go from there.

With Rachel starting College ($$$$$$), Sarah turning 16 and getting a car ($$$$$) me wanting a supercharger ($$$$$$) and short on Garage space, it's the right thing for me to do right now. Doesn't mean I am done with 40's forever.

$200 a month for 43 months? :) Seriously, what a great price on an awesome truck. I wish I had known you were thinking of selling it when you wanted the supercharger off my old LC.

Ahhhh...you are quite gifted in the fine art of negotiation. :D

Wish I had the $8500 right now, or that truck would be in my driveway....

If I sell the 40, I can then get that supercharger for the LX450 and some other toys.Interesting reasoning. You want sell your 40, which you've pretty much gotten it where you want it mod-wise, to free up some cash for the present. Then, down the road (figuratively), you want buy another 40 to build.

Personal observations:

(1) Everyone I have ever known who has owned a particular cruiser for any appreciable length of time and then sold it, especially a 40, has subsequently regretted it.

(2) You only get pennies on the dollar for money spent on mods.

(3) Many Cruiser owners I know who started with a 40, ultimately end up with a built wagon, and despite protestations to the contrary, never go back to a 40, yet still regret selling up their 40.

Everyone has their personal motivations and plans for the future, and it is efficient to sell a vehicle which isn't being used. But owning a Land Cruiser isn't about efficiency, any more than owning a 1969 Mustang is. I suggest driving your 40 more before going through with it...

Best of luck and happy cruisin'!

I owned a 40 for a brief stint...even now I still wish I had it. I'd trade my 80 series for a nice 40 in a heartbeat. My 80 may be hitting the chopping block in order to finance a move for us. Then I'll pickup a beater 40 to build up.

There's just something about the 40's that makes them the coolest...


good luck on your sell, or on your keeping it. :D

Yup. All cruisers are cool but there is just something about 40's... :bowdown:

It is a sad day as I sold my 40. But I sold it to Nakman, so I guess I have visiting rights.

Sells a 40 (with interesting taillight operation) when he almost has it built, so that in the future he can start completely over. Ken, you remind me of.....

me.

Ah, well, it's the journey, not the destination...

That did it.:eek: I will buy a sports car when I get the kids off the payroll and keep the 80 as my trail rig.
