Hi, i'm not a regular on this forum but it was suggested to me that it may be a good place to spread the word on my truck.
Please email me whitefjforsale@gmail.com if you want any more photos/info or want to come check it out.

Summary:
2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser Trail Teams edition, one of 3200. URD Supercharged, 3-link front Dana 60, 3-link rear Dana 70, Atlas 5.0 transfer case, 40in MTRs locked, armored and ready to rock. The FJ was bought new by me in March 08 after our previous one was written off and I built it as a fairly capable IFS daily driver/ wheeler. In Dec 09 I did a little panel damage (which was repaired by body shop) and decided I wanted to go big. Feb 10 I started the solid axle conversion, working on weekends which I finally had finished in Jan 11. It has very little wheeling done on it as a SA rig. The FJC has a total of 35,6xx miles on it and has had all services performed by professional mechanic owner. Many of the accessoires on the truck were installed as demonstration/research parts while i was shop manager/lead tech of Man-A-Fre. This vehicle has been wheeled, but the sheet metal is straight, the paint is nice and shiny. The sliders/control arms etc have some rock rash on them. The rig is clean inside with the exception of some scratches in the plastic interior. I have taken photos of the build from when I picked it up from the dealer to the current day so have full records of how t was built. I spilt a lot of blood on this truck, had a **** of a lot of fun and met some great people becasue of this vehicle. I built it with the intention of keeping it for a long time, however, my wife and I are now expecting our first child and have since decided to move back to Australia. I am selling this vehicle with huge regret - driving it home last night knowing i had to put it for sale after it really bummed me out. I want to sell it to a wheeler, the FJ deserves that! - my wife suggested putting it at a consignment yard etc but I really want to know who the vehicle goes to so we can keep in touch.

I have done over 2500Miles on the SAS so far, using it as my daily driver and about three trips out into the desert/snow over the last month. It has a slight wheel balance wobble at around 55-60mph that goes away above 60mph. The tires have 12oz dynabead in them, i think it needs a little adjustment but doesnt bother me enough to warrant taking my tires to the tire shop to get stripped (internal beadlocks mean no valve stem application) and have the weight adjusted. It sits on 70mph comfortably. Plenty of power and torque for acceleration / grades.

All 08 FJ Trail Teams options, black-out exterior items (mirrors/handles) Trail teams badges, Warm white exterior, white/black trim interior, power everything, remote central locking, alarm, in dash 6 stack CD player, COLD air conditioning, HOT heat, guage package, 5 seats, Inverter, Leather steering wheel, bilet shift knob etc. But the stuff you really want to know...

Doesnt drive much different from a modified IFS vehicle but you do need to be aware while driving it. Tire Vibe at 55-60. It has a leaking front axle seal seal that might have been seen on the weekend and Im fixing that today. I do have fog lights for the front bumper as well which I didnt get to install before I went away.

LICENCE PLATES ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THE SALE.
I DO NOT THINK THIS VEHICLE CAN BE SMOGGED IN CALIFORNIA WITH THE SUPERCHARGER / EXHAUST MODS. Its currently smog exempt until 2013 but Im not sure if thats transferrable.

PRICE.... $55,000, neg. The only trade I will consider is a 1940 - 1955 AMERICAN car, complete, in stock or slight resto-mod condition, Clean title, for the right car may trade up to 7.5K. Need something to fill the 40ft container Im taking home :)
LOCATION... MALIBU, CA. If anyone from out of state is interested, I can pickup from airport etc or drive in LA County/Ventura County area to show it. For deposit + accom/fuel i'm even cool with taking a roadtrip for delivery :)

Please, please dont come inquire if your not ready to buy, or just want to see what a SAS truck drives like. I'm more then happy to take you for a drive anywhere on a trail if thats what your after, just ask me :) , but please dont BS me just to get behind the wheel.
Its getting detailed and photo'd for a mag this week and
then I will try and have it at a few big events etc while its for sale.




















I have plenty more pics if wanted.

Trust me dude, its the very last thing i ever wanted to do. Just over 11years ago i sold my first ever landcruiser, (which was the first of many) a FJ40 (FJ40-217770 :) ) i converted to a diesel with a Toyota Dyna 2B and did a few other things to. I sold it coz i thought it was a good thing to do. I would always regret that decision. And i know im going to regret this, but expecting our first child and time for us to move back to Australia - lots of reasons for that, biggest being that both of our families are back there, and there all kind of excited for their first grandchild. And i really should get back to my two HZJ75's i left there 4 years ago :)

5mths along now, they say its gonna be a boy :)

You can't lower it and throw it in a container and take it back to oz with you? That is one amazing truck. I couldn't appreciate just how big it was until I saw ur wife standing next to it. Congrats on the little guy. Trucks can always be built again but it's. Not everyday you have the opportunity to become a dad!

Thanks guys. Wish i could take it back with me, but australian road rules (specifically queensland) are extremely strict - no LHD, no more then 50mm suspension lift, no more then 50mm larger tire size, no suspension modifications (IFS to SA), no interior cages, blah blah blah. Trailer rig you say? No full size trucks in australia - nothing really cabable of moving a 6000lb truck + fuel, trailer and gear unless i step up to a box truck. Ive thought about it but it isnt going to work lol. Oh and dont let my wifes heigt fool you, shes only 5" :)

Its close to the same width as it is tall, and its actually a very stable truck. Did some higher speed desert stuff on the weekend in afton canyon sand washes, lots of fun.

Wow, I did not know they were such hard A$$es in AU re vehicle mods....bummer. I thought you might be lucky and get away with a RHD swap....but just that alone would be a big job and $$$.

But then, down there you get all the cool diesel utes etc. that we just get to stare at the pictures and drool over....

Your rig would look great in my driveway until you decide to move back here to the states....just a standing offer to help !!! :D

GLWS !!

Great idea !!


I just looked and there are over 1300 viewers on this site as I speak....512 are members. I do not know the total # of members this site has registered...could not find that info, probably in the multiple thousand.
BUT I am sure there is no shortage of members that would be interested in a time share on that thing...
You might be onto a great idea...just need to have some hefty insurance to cover the unexpected.

I'd rent it for a week right now, but it is on the wrong side of the dirt from me.....Guess I'll have to wait until it works its way East.
shipping/driving it long distance will be time consuming and expensive....

But then, the West Coast crowd will probably hog all the time and we'll not see it over here for years and it will have 200,000 miles on it or so. :frown:

Bump for an awesome FJ

Yep, when i was shop manager at MAF we used it for lots of product demos. I designed the front bumper, my legacy ;) Poke around the site you"ll also find more pics of it. Also on the MAF facebook page, those are all pics of it when it was IFS though.
