Meanie is For Sale!
Price Reduced! 1969 Toyota FJ40 Truggy aka the “Meanie”
Originally built by Profitt’s Cruisers, the rig has been updated and substantially modified by Redline Cruisers in Colorado Springs.
Under the hood it has a 285hp Chevy Vortec 5.3L V8 engine with multi point fuel injection and an aluminum dual core radiator with twin electric cooling fans. A new battery was installed 1 year ago. It also has a new Turbo Hydro 400 automatic transmission mated to an Advanced Adaptors twin stick 4:1 transfer case. It has HD constant velocity drive shafts using Spicer U-joints attached to GM 1 ton axles. The T-case has a HD cross member and skid plate. The rig has a turbo style exhaust system and runs and sounds great with no oil leaks.
The 5.13 geared Dana 60 front axle was built new just over 1 year ago with all new bearings, seals, ring & pinion gears, disc brakes, HD axles and locking hubs. It has an ARB air locking differential and ARP high strength knuckle studs with Blue Flame high steers arms. It also has a HD diff cover and the passenger side spring mounting pad has been machined to allow the proper pinion angle when using leaf springs. It has Saginaw power steering with HD DOM steering links utilizing heim joints. The Redline custom front reverse shackle suspension uses HD rock-crawler type leaf springs for maximum flex while maintaining a stable ride on the pavement. It has Bilstein HD shocks up front.
The 5.13 geared GM 14 bolt rear axle was shaved and completely rebuilt 1 year ago with all new bearings, seals, ring & pinion gears, disc brakes and HD axles. It has a Detroit Locker differential and a Blue Flame pinion guard and axle truss. The rear frame and suspension is a custom Redline 4 link setup using massive DOM links, heim joints and newly rebuilt SwayAway 2.0 air shocks with limiter straps. The rear suspension also has a 2K suck-down winch with interior controls.
The body tub, bib, hood and fold down windshield are all in excellent condition with Fiero red paint. It has Redline DOM tube doors with canvas covers. It has a full rollcage with a Paul’s Custom Canvas modular top. The top can be completely removed or taken apart in stages so you can have a bikini top or partial to full coverage. This way you don’t worry about tearing the top when running the really radical trails.
It has Redline covered DOM tube fenders, front end/winch guard, sliders, rear tube fenders and HD recovery points front & rear. It also has a Redline flip up spare tire carrier above the storage area that carries an IROK 37” spare tire & wheel. It has Big Eye high intensity headlights, rock lights on all 4 corners, parking lights, front & rear turn indicators and LED rear tail lights. All interior gauges and switches are illuminated.
It has a Warn 8274 winch up front loaded with high strength synthetic rope and has cab mounted winch controls. Inside it has Corbeu seats with 5 point harnesses, console, floor mounted shifter, heater, windshield wipers, modern gauges for water temp, tranny temp, oil pressure, fuel and electronic speedometer. It also has a constant duty rated electric air compressor feeding a 2 gallon onboard air tank to operate the front locker and air up the tires. It has a 15 gallon fuel cell with new electric fuel pump, a 5 gallon jerry can mount and a high lift jack mount.
The rig runs on 42” IROK bias ply tires with 65% tread mounted on MRW steel bead locks utilizing balancing beads. It comes with 2 spare 42” IROK tires. One is near new with a professionally repaired sidewall puncture; the other spare is 40% tread and is mounted on a non-bead lock 8 hole steel wheel.
There really is nothing this rig needs. It is mechanically perfect and meticulously maintained. It routinely handles the toughest trails in Moab, and then drives back to the hotel or campground in town. It is street legal in Colorado and can cruise down the highway at 65 mph. We take it to the Jeffco Toys for Tots Run every year. With the top and heater you can do the snow runs in the winter and stay toasty warm. It is currently licensed with Collector vehicle plates and a clear title.
If you want a rig that needs nothing, will go almost anywhere, and gets lots of looks and thumbs up when you drive it on the street, this is the rig for you. $18,500 Call Randy @303-319-8976
