Hello everyone, here is my story and my 40's story. I saw my first FJ40 in 2012, and absolutely fell in LOVE with it. I know, I know where had I been, living under a rock some where?? Well needless to say after a relentless search I found my baby. An unmolested well slightly molested 1979 FJ40 with premium up grades: 2.5 inch Old Man Emu lift, OME shocks, Warn 8274 with synthetic rope, Hell For Stout Bumper, Safari Snorkel, ARB air lockers front and rear and a set of Goodyear Wrangler MT/R tires, Halogen head lights. This thread is to document this trucks "Overhaul" and all the trials and tribulations that go along with restoring a FJ40 Toyota Land Cruiser for the future.
