I sold my FJ40 to a guy who had plans for it. Funny how these things turn out.

She's got a good home. Going to get some beadlocks for it and some 38"s :)

Gonna end up on 60's and 40's :beer:

Glad you were able to thin the herd a bit. It's always sad, but there's always another cool vehicle in your future too.

One word, 'Simplify'. It seems odd at first but the memories are all you need. Wasn't it Hatfield who parted out the Nuclearlemon?

Sorry Ige... but congrats on the pickup John! and welcome. I drove that 40 once, even helped work on it once, has a lot of character, much like the PO. :)

HA! I used to work with John (bought Ige's 40), and so did The Fat Kid. Right on John Good to hear you're back in Littleton.

Man, Root, my memory of it don't do justice to how ugly it was. You are one dedicated dude, you really are.

Yeah this is my 3rd 40. I think it will be my daily driver / wheeler for a while. I am building a Tacoma buggy that won't be done for my Rubicon trip in Aug so the 40 will probly get driven out there...

Mod list for now:
beadlocks & 38's
front locker install, cromo birfs, maybe hydo assist
Beard seats installed for tall people:D
Paint & a little trimming

It will be sweet:thumb:
