Up for sales is my family owned 1990 FJ62, that I've built into what you see over the past 20 years. Vehicle was purchased new by my father in South Carolina (dealer was in Augusta GA). I began driving it in 1998, and we relocated to eastern WA in 1999. It has been in WA ever since. I’ve done a lot of the work, and I’ve had help from friends for some. It’s a reliable rig with endless potential. If I had the funds, I’d evolve it into a hardcore overland rig.

Powertrain:
2004 6.0 LQ4 Vortec with an estimated 130k on the clock
GM 4L80E transmission with an estimated 130k on the clock. Large cooler in front of radiator.
GM NP205 box + OEM Split Case, mated using Marks Adapter. Custom twin stick shifters.
FJ60 CV drivelines front and rear.
Engine/transmission harness by 150tunes.com. Free tunes by mail for the life of this ECM. If you add a cam, change tire size, whatever, he will update the ECM for the cost of shipping.
New CFS radiator with Ford Contour dual e-fans. Temps run 195-215

Hydro boost brakes using factory GM pump and Master cylinder
1 Ton Disc's rear - new
4runner calipers up front
Proportioning valve
*no e-brake

Hydro Assist steering, rock logic ram, PSC reservoir.
Cut and turn front axle by Cruiser Outfitters. 4 runner calipers, 4.88 gears, ARB locker, Marlin Crawler High-Steer, ARP knuckle & Hub studs, hubs drilled for extra dowels. Bobby Long 27 spline birdields and poly performance inner axles. 2.5” wheel spacers. I will also include a set of axle widening sleeves and a long side 30 spline inner axle from lcwizard. This is a project I never got around to. The spacers work fine, so I haven’t been motivated to add the widening sleeves.

GM 14 bolt rear. Just built this year with a lot of new parts. 4.88, ARB, disc brakes, HD cover, shaved/plated, 6 lug hubs, Axle tubes were flipped to offset the diff to match the tcase.

OEM springs up front with add a leaf, Ford shock towers and Bilstein shocks. GM 63” leaf springs out back, new Bilstein shocks, Anti-Rock away bar.

Custom dual swing out rear bumper using 4x4 labs spindles. Powder coated gray.

-Wheels & Tires have been sold. Truck is currently on jack stands.

Internal Roll Cage built by myself and a friend. .120” 1.75” DOM. The cage is bolted to the floor using sandwich plates in 6 locations.

Rattle Trap covering the entire floor of the vehicle.

$22,000 you bring your wheels/tires

I get the same results when I pull them up on my phone. They look good on my PC, however. I'll start to add photos to this thread, in hopes of making it easier to view.
the Pics are clear now....Man that is one sweet ass rig! Makes me wanna dip into my savings lol!
I already have 2,don’t think the lady would want another in the driveway? She sounds sweet and definitely has some get up and go for sure! Love the color,my 87 6BT is same color. You think about throwing it up on BAT? Bet it’ll do good there?

It's been a passion of mine since I was a teenager, and I hate to see it go. Even with the big meats, she can certainly get out of her own way! I've never used BAT, but from the comments I've seen on here, it seems to be the place to command top dollar. TBH, If I got the rear quarter repaired, put on a less aggressive tire, and added a front bumper, I believe this could go for substantially more $$$.

if I were you i would probably take the time and fix that rear quarter panel,slap on a beefy front bumper and let it go to town on BAT

The market for this vehicle is small for sure. The extra large meats make it even smaller IMO. The SOA also reduces the audience to some extent.If you have a rust free example with a well done swap with most if not all of the kinks worked out then I think the price is in the ball park.
I think if you can be patient it just needs the right buyer. Or you could throw some regular size tires on there and reach a slightly broader market. SOA harder to undo of course
My experience with selling something like this is to expect it to take months not weeks and if you need to sell it in weeks you have to price it at a point where it's too much of a bargain to click past. Hopefully you can just be patient with the process and get what you need out of it

Looks like the v8 swap doesn't have emissions hooked up so that reduces your audience and excludes people in areas that require emissions. It's been modified extensively according to your personal taste. So you have to find someone that has the same taste as you. It's also unfinished, the paint is kind of beat up too so that hurts value.

I love your 62! I think that other than the items the people above posted, the "no e-brake" may scare of some folks. Can you tell me more about that? Is it because of the brakes? I had a 60 I added Cadillac rear calipers on and the e-brake worked, it was just different than stock. A lot of formal offroad meets will require a working e-brake to pass technical inspection, so this is an important topic to cover.

The disc brake kit I purchased for the 14 bolt axle didn't include a parking brake. A simple solution is to swap to these eldorado calipers with built in parking brake. Cadillac El Dorado Caliper Set with Parking Brake Lever

Other solutions would be a t/case park brake, or electric line locks.
