      The main thing I'm working on right now is the paint. The history is on the color is kind of confusing. While we were cleaning the interior, my dad noticed there were two different greens. There was the rattle can green that's on the exterior but...

      So I've had it about a month and a half now. I'm absolutely loving it. I've put around 250 miles on it. The longest one way trip in that time has only been about 50 miles but it has been great. I drove it to work one morning when it was around 27...

      Your 40 is awesome. Good luck getting all the spray paint off, that olive color looks great. I am also the 3rd owner of a former hunting cruiser and had to undo more than a few crazy modifications the previous owner did. 👍

      Looks like your all correct! Those shims are in backwards. Feeling like a noob mistake, but we live and learn from our errors. Looking back, I see that I followed the shim direction as I found them on the rig. When I received this new FJ, it...

      Hey all, I"ve just completed the 4 inch lift on my '77 fj40 and thought I would post some finish product pictures. Only trouble I found was the M8 bolts on the stationary leaf spring perch were stripped. Most of them ended up OK with retapping...

      I bought another 40 and brought it home today! It's a 1980, and it was local. Only 15 minutes away. It's got horrible rust in the floor pans and the rear of the body, but I'm still super happy with it. I'm not nearly as knowledgeable as a lot...

      My advice. either don’t buy one or buy a really nice one. 40s are like wood boats and bulldogs. You have to really like them to have them. They are expensive buy and more expensive and or time consuming to maintain. That said there is absolutely...

      Aight. I’m done. Me. Not the 45. But……I made it all around the 45 and laid a thick coat of Fluid Film into the bed to soak in

      How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. I cut off all the random bolts and removed the tool box and monster rear view mirror. Final “before” walk around

      That first alignment shop couldn’t dial in the toe correct. They had claimed I needed to trim 1/8 off each tie rod to get the toe dialed in. I’m my head “did I toss the fj40 linkage and use fj55? What is going on here…” Adjustments were maxed...

      Every Jeep guy I’ve ever known has been a FJ40 fan and thought my FJ40 had that cool factor. They just like a smoother, quieter and faster vehicle more suited to modern traffic. But they are envious of our slower, utilitarian and a little...

      So distilling it down to some basic thoughts…people who drive anything out of the ordinary have to have a special character assignment to them. When I was a 2 wheel rider, anyone on 2 wheels was different. They had a sense of adventure …we waved...

      @red66toy Here's the hardware that goes with that clamp. It was black so I repainted black.

      For the air cleaner bottom, I just treated the rust and put on a light coat of fluid film. I'm quite curious to see how this holds up. All back together with the top. It really ties the room together.

      Still in body work purgatory. Opening every cavity to clean it out and remove rust before I start re-assembly. Found some PO had dropped a screwdriver down the post hole for the hard top. I played the most excellent… Wild Stallions! game of...

      cruiserkev reacted to BeerFit's post in the thread Copper and Rust (72 FJ40) with Like Like.
      I got my 72 FJ40 a little over a year ago. I think that one of the previous owners built this rig for offroad use only. Some of the modifications are awesome and show serious know how while others seem a little slapped together. My vision was...

      I found some other pics of owners bending their brackets just like mine to accommodate the thicker later model water pump body. Interesting but not surprising to be honest. I've seen some stuff that makes me shudder. A zip tied steering rack...

      Started with the slow process of rust removal. This piece needs a little more time on the first side. It was only cooking about 3 hours.
