Anyone recognize this rig? Diesel, right hand drive. Spotted last weekend in Steamboat parked at the Steamboat Grand. Had a parking tag connected to a local shop.

Wow. I guessed the parking lot before reading the post. I haven't even been there in years.

Not mine, but clean looking truck, whoever it is.

I think it is a Troopie FJ 45 Diesel, imported from down under or Canada. There a few for sale on eBay and Expedition portal. There is one for sale for $17k there sweet rig, I would love one.

Im guessing BJ40 or BJ42. It isn't a troopy, the wheel wells are too close, and you can see the rear doors right up close in the one pic. Plus it has the push out, rear vent windows. It also isn't an FJ as that would be gas. Being diesel it has to be a BJ or HJ model. It doesn't look like the slightly longer wheelbase of a BJ43, etc... so, depending on the engine, that is why I am guessing the BJ40 or BJ42.

I don't think the H series engine came in any of the regular 40 series models - HJ45 yes, but HJ40 no, I don't think.

RHD BJ42 (guessing because of the square bezel) wouldn't be Canadian, so I wonder where it's from? Those mirrors *may* be Aussie mirrors, not sure what the JDM 40s had as far as mirrors go.

I think the mirrors are not original. They looked very new.
