    The next parking place for this is on frame stands. It has an appointment with my plasma cutter. :D

    It looks like the only 'value' it has is the tailgate and the FST bracketry. Maybe some odds & ends. How bad is the rust?

    I'm not cutting it up, just removing the modifications.


    I have most of a 1974 FJ40 that I can use to bring it back to Toyota.

    That's a very creative and unique approach to outboarding springs.
