Shopping around one can find...

    Old thread, but great thread, I went to put a new battery in my 86 `60 and found the OEM tray a pile of powdered rust, so a quick search brought me to this thread and I ordered a SS tray today. Thanks for the link!

    Rust advice on FJ62

    YMMV significantly from my opinion and that's well and good. With what the market has been recently that FJ62 looks like a $12K+ rig if it is solid mechanically and isn't toast otherwise. Research recent sales on bringatrailer.com for where my opinion is based on but location plays a very...

    sweet! nice work! I've got plans for something similar in the future, but my drawers need to be deep, nearly the 6' depth of the area behind the front seats. Way to go!

    What did you do with your 60 this weekend?

    Should I ?

What does a virtually rust free 1986 FJ60 with all of the OEM emissions equipment (working), ~196K miles and OME steering stabilizer, OME heavy...

    Sliced brisket, pulled pork, pre-made chili, curry, dal, rice, beans, cubed cooked potatoes, brats-n-kraut, etc... vacuum seal individual ingredients in single-serving portions (and frozen in flat packs). I use the 4mm thick bags and have yet to have one rupture, but double bagging is good...

    Best "easy" camping food

    Sliced brisket, pulled pork, pre-made chili, curry, dal, rice, beans, cubed cooked potatoes, brats-n-kraut, etc... vacuum seal individual ingredients in single-serving portions (and frozen in flat packs) - simply put them in a pot of water and heat. It's like making your own MREs but lots...
