I wish I could join you this year, but my daughter now has a job and with I-25 being closed and the distances involved, I will have to pass. I wish you all the best FJ40 trail running!

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.

Nifty floor mats

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