Default 10 years ago, fj40 content

My friend gave me this pic the other day. Thought I'd share. Excuse the bezel, and the roof top spare.

That's awesome... tiny tires too, did you make it through without a strap?


I guess the Crack must be bigger now.. since it now requires 33's and two lockers.

My friend Fritz was in a bone stock 97 with factory lockers. I had to get tugged back out first. Then he drove through and a small tug at the right time and I was through. I got a lock-right for the rear diff shortly after that adventure.

Yeah, I guess that's all I do with my 40 these days as well.

What a great looking rig! I don't think a man can be complete without owning a 40 at some point in his life.
