      Greetings, our adventure has taken us back to the ATX-ish area for the next few months. We have a quick stop in New Braunfels this week then headed to Port A for the month of Jan. Will spend Feb-April in SA and Hill Country. Plan on attending...

      I daily drive my 87 fj60 with a 2f. The fuel mileage is crap but I keep my miles down. When I commuted, I never used the 60. Only used if for local driving, 4 wheeling and a hunting truck. Be realistic. If fuel costs are high and your...

      I have been thinking about this thread for a while. I've daily driven my 60 for 7 years with a high mileage 2F. You can't count fuel mileage when driving one of these trucks. The facts are simple. I get 11-13 city, 15-17 highway. Usually its...

      Michigan winters + older land cruiser = :frown: That thing will get rotted in no time. I’ve got a BJ74 here in Colorado and basically don’t drive it during ice/snow times for multiple reasons. I will sometimes but the good part is colorado...

      Sure that wasn't @aljollano exacting revenge from almost losing his fingers?

      Looks like the one that was at K2 a few years ago....don't recall the guy's name. I think he spotted CB in his 60 to where CB now has a bashed in PS rear quarter. LOL...

      I DD a FJ60 but it's one I've had for almost 20 years and I am very familiar with the mechanical state, how it drives, and it's capabilities and shortcomings. I don't recommend purchasing an old FJ60 of unknown condition and history to use as a...

      The 80 or 100 would fit that bill as well. Not sure of your budget, but both of those generally are in the same or lower price range as a 60 depending on condition/miles. Neither get very good gas mileage. I do like the 100 with the V8 and...

      The only way to get economy out of a 60 is to replace the engine. 2F and 3F heads just don't flow. I still dailied mine for a few years. Good times. Then I put a Toyota v8 in and haven't looked back. The F-series engines don't share a GM bolt...

      My DD was a 60 for 3-4 years, but not 80 miles round trip. I couldn't imagine going 80 miles round trip everyday. That sounds a bit miserable to me, but I'm older and enjoy creature comforts more now. I'd daily drive my 100 or even back when I...
