Speaking of Cabo Rojo, I used to play with my then new 1975 CJ5 around there snorkeling for snails and spear fishing. I also found areas to play around north of Ramey AFB. I kept following my nose and found beaches to drive/fish.

Are those rigs parked by Highway 100 in Cabo Rojo? We just came back from a month long trip to PR and the Dominican Republic and I believe I saw those rigs parked there.... They are nice!!!!

Your right Milkwagon, that's Highway 100 in Cabo Rojo. The pictures were taken at Mariano Rosario's house, he's the best Land Cruiser mechanic in Puerto Rico.

I am originally from Mayaguez, however, I now live in Nebraska. My wife's cruiser radar went off when she saw the cruisers off Hwy. 100.

I had a 1979 FJ40 when I was a teenager. It was stolen over 25 years ago the same day we got it off the body shop after a full paint job!!! CARAJO!!!

It needed to be painted after the many trips to the salinas at El Combate and El Faro. Oh, those days! Medallas and Landcruisers and once in a while the Sapa from the rescue unit. We did not even know that winches existed back then...

We now own a 1980, 1979, 1972 and 1973. I will soon post the pictures of the frame off of the 73... Estoy enfiebrao!!!

Saludos desde Nebraska.
