Here is a great video that will answer a ton of questions that anyone will have. I really go deep into the 40, more than I think anyone really would show. Transparency is huge to me and so you can see everything about it. Also, it saves me sending all 200 people (YES 200 people) individual photos. Because I can't keep up. Let me know your thoughts. -Tucker

Here are some photos of the driver's side floor pan. Surface rust only. I will get some passenger photos tomorrow. But it's way less than this side.

I don't love 40s the way I do 60s but this one gets me. It's fantastic. I hope it goes to a good home!

I feel the same way, but damn this 40 got me turning my head every single time I parked it. Someones I forget how cool the 60 is, the 40s just throws it in your face all the time... plus everyone gives me thumbs up to remind me. 😂

I cannot believe this truck is for sale! This is a gorgeous 40. Someone needs to just trust their instinct and pull the trigger on this one. It won’t last the weekend.

Thank you @jmlockwood that means a lot, I have had a ton of offers. Some even over my asking price.

With that being said...

SALE PENDING

Yea man. If I did not have Mustard I would definitely be right there. This is a fantastic 40 series. I hope the new buyer keeps posting some photos of it. That stripe gets me.

It's so good. The buyer is a cruiser guy so I feel like it will be surfacing on mud here soon! His neighbor and friend is here on mud. So it's going to a good cruiser home if they decide to drive it home. The other person lined up if they fall out is a great cruiser guy and he would be happy with it as well.

Overall I'm happy I posted it here on mud only.

I'd be happier driving this than one of those 200k plus ones from companies like FJcompany. Looks similar to the one I last had and the best year IMO. I hope this comes back for sale here in the future I'll be watching.

Thank you, I think I would feel weird driving around a 200k cruiser... but I'm willing to give it a try ;) You never know on resale, I didn't think I was ever going to sell it. Life happens, happy it's going to a good home!

I’m obsessed with the blue strips! I‘m going to have to steal that look. It goes great with the white. It’s a super cool truck.

Man that’s a great looking truck!
congrats to the new owner and yourself.

Thank you! The new owner drove it 3 hours home last night with no problems and was surprised at how well it drove. Nothing makes you feel better than that, all the work put in matters. He arrived home to a happy family who all got to take rides in it. I feel like it went to the right person.

That’s great to hear and read.
nothing like having the confidence and in knowing your vehicle would make it after wrenching on it.
What great feeling!
