FYI - That bell housing is critical for putting a later 2F in an older truck. FJ60 bell housings aren't as useful. Wish I wasn't sitting on several FJ60 bell housings at this time, but someone may...

I replaced a radiator on a '94 for a buddy and he bought it on Amazon for about $100 less than a FLAPS. The radiator has worked fine for him, and the fitment was no problem.

That's about 4x the Edmunds retail price. And with rust. Get it while you still can!

Nifty floor mats

Anyone ever seen these before? Dated 1984 - ironically, after FJ40s were out of production. Not for sale - just sharing the coolness ;-)
