Default Trigger Pulled

Just bought an FJ40. Picking it up tomorrow. Needs some light wrenching, then it's my new daily and my wife's when she feels like it since I work out of the house and don't drive too often. Rock stock, missing only the OEM hubcaps as far as I can tell (there are a few parts in boxes that will need to be sorted, but it looks like it's all there), and the rust is very light compared to all of the others I looked at. Pretty stoked.

I didn't get it home before it got too dark to take any photos. I need to rebuild the carb tomorrow, and I'll get some then.

Where is the best place locally to buy parts? I talked to Sabrina at Rocky Mountain Cruisers this morning, and they said it was pretty much just internet...

Default FJ40 parts

Toyota dealers can get some new parts. Other than that, it's mail order.
I've used Cruiser Corps, SOR, and Cool Cruisers for mail order new parts.
For used, you can try Salida Classic Cruisers.

for carb rebuild kits and such, just go to NAPA. Stevinson and Boulder Toyota are good supporters of Rising Sun members for OEM parts, and they're right down the road, in a manner of speaking...

Sweet!

Lets see some pictures!!!

Boulder Toyota is cool, they have sold me TONS of FJ40 parts. I usually go there first. Non OEM can be sourced from places like NAPA for certain things like Matt says. Then for others you've got the MAF, SOR, CCOT, bunch as others have mentioned. I try to avoid SOR due to their high prices on shipping and parts. MAF and CCOT have their own demons as well, but when it comes down to it they usually have what you need and are cruiser people. I haven't tried Crusier Corps but probably will.

Used parts are the variety of FJ40 Junkyards around. Salida Classic Cruisers, cruiser parts.net All the used places you'll have to be careful about what you think you are getting. remember these things are old and most used parts will be as old and rusty as what you are trying to replace.

what year is it?

I found the Napa carb kit to be pretty darn complete - more so than the Keyster.
