Default Finished at last!

Just about completed my FJ40. Installing the last parts now and plan to have it in Crested Butte by June.

Engine, Transmission and Transfer case overhauled, new brake, clutch and clutch slave cylinders, new rear disc brakes, Axles overhauled with full ARB lockers F&R, new OME suspension, shocks, shackle reverse kit, 4+ front and rear bumper, all new weather strip, paint and interior.
What a lot of work! Now to enjoy in beautiful Colorado!

That's a beauty! Great color. It really looks awesome.

Your "before" photo reminds me of my first Cruiser, a 1975 FJ40 nicknamed Ugly75.
