Very cool. My dad used to own a '61 parts truck, and a '62 town wagon (that was very, very nice). I used to drive it to school the few times my parents let me drive myself to high school. Good...

Do a mini-truck or FJ-60/62 disc swap. (I'm cutting to the chase)

It's definitely cheaper than rebuilding the drums, and better too. Get the birfs that came in the mini/60 and you're good to go. ...

Gorgeous! I definitely appreciate that you kept the 79 air cleaner, and connected it to that motor.

Smart.

The HJ-61 is by far my favorite of the diesels I've done.

...and I LOVE the faux-lux and Blue-Jay 40.

I only got to see the peninsula, but the dry valleys are one of the things I would love to see on the continent.

Also, my brother once tried to "help" start a campfire with white fuel in San Pedro de Atacama. We had to get rid of it anyway, so I think...

Me too. The drive up to the property is steep, but it was clear and no slipping on the way up (at least, my 60 didn't slip at all). One up at the property, it was a pretty easy push through a small...

Vicunas are awesome.

One of the most impressive things I have witnessed was two male Vicunas fighting in the Atacama.

Have you been near any of the high altitude Flamingoes yet?

I don't have one here, unfortunately.

Quick note though: there are two flavors of 60 steering boxes. The only difference is the bolt pattern, so it's a good idea to check that if you find one. If...

I'd say that it's more correct to say that people want choices. Be they in Australia, the US or elsewhere. The Aussies went positively nuts for the FJC down there. I'd do the same for a HDJ, HZJ...

Agreed.

When I discovered similar looking (but not that bad yet) rust in Guzzler, I did the easy way out and found a rust free donor frame and body. Someday I'll even get to putting it all back...

We did go real close to it. The picture with the 4 trucks ahead, and the church on the ridge in the background is real close to it. In fact, I believe that is the La Garita church.
