EDIT - gone to a new home, thanks!
No gauge cluster or steering wheel, but dash and HVAC is here. Figure it may help someone local. Free to a good cruiser home.
Please spread the word—need it all taken, can’t separate.
The Ute is for sale, $4k to mud. It’s on CL for $5k. It’s a hack job that looks cool from certain angles and certain distances.
Washington title shows rebuilt from an earlier accident in its life. Nittos have less than 10k on them. Warn M12000, IPOR skid, Aussie locker in the rear.
Looking forward to your chop! I regret not doing a frame stretch on mine. I am going to, and hope to recreate the process you and Tony used on his troopie project. I have that thread bookmarked for reference when the time comes.
Even with my silly stock wheelbase, I absolutely love my...
Ha, thanks man. I just grabbed a welder and figured it out. I’m currently in the process of wiring up a 220v outlet and looking to step up my welding game so I can do more structural stuff. I need to stretch the frame on this and I want to do some things on my 40.
Being able to cut, shape, and...
Just got caught up with this, sub’d for more! We do similar Walla Walla trips (wine tasting, tacos, and breakfast at Bacon and Eggs, mostly) and I can’t wait to have my 40 together enough to get us there.

I'm starting from scratch on my FJ40 and need everything but the tub-mounted latches for my windshield.
I'll order rubber new and source glass locally, but am looking for a windshield frame and hinges for my 1967.
Located in 98498.
Bumping up an old thread as it's fairly on topic...
EDIT - answered my own question after some additional searching; given my dash design and the windshield frame latches I have, I need a 1967 windshield frame. I don't want no stinking knobs.
I'm starting with no windshield frame, hinges...
Random record keeping post... I changed the starter and it still starts intermittently. I’ll revisit in a few years.
Still doing ute things on the homestead. Note the black gorilla tape over the area I was too heavy handed with bondo, and the monstaliner chipped open. I’ll revisit another...
Bump. Three years later and I’ve got a SOA’d 40 pulled apart in the garage... hopefully it goes back together the same way it came apart!
How are Thursday evenings for people? I’ve been kicking around getting the south sound cruisers going again.
