    Early Fj40 Rock Crawler Gets a Refresh

    No, my interest was in the 40 that is the topic of this build thread.

    How is this 40 Pulling This Much $$$

    You have velour seats... That are red.... And no dingle balls from the ceiling.... Just saying.

    How is this 40 Pulling This Much $$$

    You'd be surprised what people are willing to pay. I sold mine for a very decent price, not 51k, but enough to take the sting off the build for sure. The build on that thing is "interesting". Cheap front axle, cheap tires, pretty much cheap everything besides the atlas. The more I look at it...

    Builds Project Lockjaw-1973 Fj40 on Tons

    I think I went with "the beast" also (whichever one monster transmissions sells). I also went with the upgraded steel and friction plates. I can't find my 4l60e rebuild manual. The th350/400 one is here, so I'm guessing i loaned it out, sorry. The manual is cheap on Amazon, and you'll want to...

    Intake routing ls swap....How did you get cold air?

    It gets pretty hot underhood in an LS swapped 40. I would think your best bet (although ugly) would be a snorkle.

    Early Fj40 Rock Crawler Gets a Refresh

    I'd take a look at some corbeau or Recaro seats before settling on the PRP seats. I liked my PRP seats (custom colors, $$$, "top of the line"), but in comparison to corbeau, cobra, recaro, the quality was crap.

    Rebuild that while you have it out. I can send you the tech manual and the videos I used. Upgrade the sunshell, and go with the high friction clutches.

    Fox and King will go the distance to help you in tuning custom shocks for your application. Reach out to both. I'll bet you won't be disappointed.

    Early Fj40 Rock Crawler Gets a Refresh

    When I went from duals in my last 40 to a 3.8 atlas, I thought I'd miss the gearing options, but didn't. I think the 4:1 option is damn near perfect (3:1 is great if you have HP, balls, and can drive).

    Early Fj40 Rock Crawler Gets a Refresh

    Seriously, if you're even kicking the idea about of doing a hardcore crawler with this thing, talk to me first. I'd love a truck on 35's, small lift, and an orion.

    Early Fj40 Rock Crawler Gets a Refresh

    FJ40, in the best color ever. Good shape, and tasteful, simple mods> than linked 40/buggy. I kid you not, if you decide to cut and link this thing, slap yourself. After said slapping, post it for sale. Take sale money, and build a buggy with a 40 bezel and hood.

    71 FJ40 1-Tons Advice

    Take a look at the dodge dakota leaves. 56" off-center, plentiful at the pick-n-pull, and very flexible. Easy to set up some custom packs as well. As Chad stated, I'd avoid a shackle reversal. A link suspension is a hell of a lot more expensive than springs (I've done SOA and a four link on...

    Do you know some one infected with covid 19?

    The neighbor said it was the sickest he's ever been. Horrid cough for two weeks. Definitely not something you want to get.

    Do you know some one infected with covid 19?

    My neighbor is on the mend from it now (not diagnosed, but his office was a hotspot in the area with three people diagnosed) and my wife's friend is on the mend as well. The wife's friend is my neighbors coworker.
