Cruiser Matt thanks for the reply! I am new to the FJ world. What is a SOA and lockers? Boy am I a nooby!Seems to be maybe the fourth or fifth time I’ve said it this week, get it for as cheap as possible, do a SOA and put lockers in it, and go out and run hard trails with no remorse when you bang up quarter and rocker panels!
Thanks for the reply! I would luv to take alook at your fj. Any pics?I was able to find one with zero rust out of Arizona. The sun has done a number on the paint, but it's a waaaay better starting point regardless if you're going to trail it or shine it up and go to cars and coffee.. Oh, and I'll sell it to you if you want
Blackcat! What a great looking FJ60 and for less than $8500. You are giving me hope. I am going to keep looking. What a great drive that would be back to Pa.FWIW, I paid less than that for my all original 83 with 122k last month. Arizona truck it’s whole life. I’d keep looking if I were you, you’re only a plane ticket and road trip away from having one without rust issues. Getting to drive a 60 home across the beautiful country is half the fun.

I spent $8500 for my completely rust free bodied extremely light surface rust frame 84 in all original condition with 200k. I flew out to Colorado and drove it home to Vermont and only had to replace a couple small heater hoses on the way. If you read “rust” in the description and the price is over $5k I’d say keep looking. The more rust and that number should be dropping. Unless it just has some fantastic goodies to offset it for some reason.
Sounds like a great setup! I am partial to the original type of rig. Would still like to take alook if you have some pics. Learning a lot on this thread!David, mine is SOA with 35's and a Chevy 350/4l60E/steel bumpers/aftermarket front seats/etc..... it's not really in the same category as these original motor/no lift/original bumpers/etc type rigs.
I can send you some pics, but you sure that's even what you want?
