Been reading and learning from this forum for awhile, figured I should join to contribute and participate. Picked this up a few months ago. It was somewhat neglected so it is sort of a father son fixer for the son to drive at age 16. Needed a lot of cleanup and maintenance, I'll briefly list after the 'requested' info.

1. 95 FZJ80, not 3locked
2. Barry and son Benjamin
3. no name
4. 240k
5. Mods: mainly cleanup, see below
6. Use: 16 yr old back and forth to school, and hopefully to a job this summer!
7. Photo - below.

We gutted the interior and are replacing the carpet and leather. Removed the dash and recovered dash pad with marine vinyl. Put in led's in dash. New window actuator, replaced a couple window and door seals and repaired one door panel. Replaced plastic gears in both power front seats. Installed single DIN stereo and 6 speakers, new master cylinder, new mirrors, change all fluids. Have FJ Cruiser Trail 17" wheels and plan to put 33's on it. Lots of exterior buffing, polishing, waxing, and trim paint. I'm retaining all the OEM pieces I've replaced (stereo, speakers, wheels, mirrors, etc). Looking for a 'TOYOTA' grill if anyone has one!

It's a no rust truck with good paint, and has been a fun project for son and I. Hope he will have one of the coolest vehicles in his school parking lot, with some skin in the game on fixing it up and being able to work on it. Almost finished. Pic is day it arrived. Thanks to all for the help I've received along the way.

Very nice 80! Even better that you and your boy get to work on it together.

I think he will be the envy of all the kids at school due to having an "old" ride. If it's any indication, my wife is a volunteer for a children's church group and she told me many of the 10-17 y/o are wearing t-shirts and hoodies depicting Nirvana, Sublime, Ren & Stimpy, Atari, etc. Do they have a clue as to what they're wearing? No F'n clue but hey, old anything is cool right?

If you haven't done so already, remove that grill guard and taillight protectors. They will cause more damage if hit. Ironic that the names are opposite of what will happen. Otherwise a nice vehicle that will be the envy of his buds.
Removed already. Yep, had dent's where the rear light protectors had pushed in. When we had all the interior out, we did our best to push them back out. Hardly noticeable now.

Wow, 1995 with 128k, nice find
Yeah I was pretty fortunate. I made contact with the PO a couple years back, stopped him on the road in my 40 series and we had a chat. We exchanged info and then I would occasionally drop him a text. He was an older gentleman and finally called me mid-April and said he was ready to sell. He was the original owner, bought it in Reno where he lived, but moved out to Iowa to take care of his parents about ten years ago. He drove it only during winter months. I've got some work to do on the under-carriage being that it is the rust belt, frame and body are solid, driveline is rough. Got a pair of factory locked axles waiting for me in KC though. Got it for a good price too.
