I never could have taken that truck to this level. I was searching for the right way to send her on her way and I knew JP had all the skills that Hendog lacked!!!

Now you have to promise to take her fishing once in awhile as I promised Rock Cod.

P.S. Rumor has it there's a very solid 1970 fj-40 with a 3-b and a 5speed in the hands of this craftsman that can be had for a good price. Its almost at the stage where you can pick the color of the interior, exterior, and either a dirt road soft top, the factory hard top or both! Should be ready for the 2021 Spring carshow circuits. Lol

You got it. Not much of a fisherman, though I've got a buddy trying to change that. How about some turkeys or a deer in the bed? She'll be used a bunch, not a garage queen. No serious wheeling, but lots of New England outings and maybe some longer trips when the world gets back to normal. 2F, sniper, PS, PB, AC. Reborn for some roadtrips.

In another update, this lovely FJ45 is now stationed in North Florida. I am basically taking the truck over from @navydivedoc with a very Toyota trade deal. The truck is absolutely gorgeous. @ClemsonCruiser been trying to message you. You do fine work.

The truck still has the engine issue. It cranks and drives. Just has some noise. I knew that and have planned accordingly. @FJ60Cam has already ordered some parts for a new engine. He is going to do a 2F/3F mashup and we found a NOS 3F head with the Yemen guy. It arrived yesterday and is very much cool.

I was able to get the vehicle plated in Florida with a vintage 1965 license plate. 1965 also happens to be the 400th anniversary of some Spaniards having a skirmish with some Indians and “settling” Florida. So there is a limited run plate for that year that really goes well with the truck.

Probably not a lot to report on this one for the very near future. Need to wait on a few other things to line up. For now I’m just going to enjoy it around the farm.
