    Did anyone notice the $46,000 FJ62 sold on BAT. Pretty sure it was a 62. Blue one. If you look at the ad you'll see it was built by Josh! There might be hope that the shop will still be around doing bigger and better things? Lets hope so

    Dang you must have a lead foot or do a lot of stop and go... My 1FZ troopy still gets 14-15 city, 15-17.5 highway between 70-85mph. I will eventually be getting one of those LRA sub tanks to make up for the fuel economy. To tie into the original...

    As a point of reference I defied a lot of the input given here. I bought my Troopy from a place where labor is much cheaper than parts. 🤣 Also, I only paid $6000 for mine. But the additional $15,000-ish that I’ve put into it basically levels...

    I will follow this and congrats. My troopy is built out and the weight is coming in the mid 7K lb range. I've got the OME suspension. I think there's something like 10-12 leaves in the rear spring pack and even with the weight the ass doesn't...
