Hello everyone - I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this - but I just pushed my listing live with Bring a Trailer:

*please let me know if there is a better place to post this on these forums!

Of course you can see all the details at the link - but here's the short of it. I'm incredibly sad to have made the decision to sell this vehicle. A lot of love, blood, sweat and tears have gone into this rebuild over the years. But with my role as a new dad and lots more driving - I have made the tough call to part ways in favor of something more modern and ahem fuel efficient. The body is in amazing shape with a little rust in the rain rails up top and along the bottom near passenger door. Nothing in the wheel wells (again - all shown in the link). I chose to put it on Bring a Trailer because I'm slammed with work - and it's a pretty focused crowd who goes there. I know she'll end in a good home and continue to live a long happy life after finding a buyer there.

Quick Snapshot:
- Bought in Austin, TX in Nov 2014 with 182,456 miles on it
- 2" Iron Man lift with Hankook DynaPro MT 32 x 11.50R15LT tires on black steel rims
- Chevy V8 engine swap - with Advance Adapters Ranger Overdrive and FiTech fuel injection system
- Vehicle body now has 189K (only 3k of which are on the new Chevy V8 swap!)
- Custom bumpers, bull bar, window tint, and Texas barnwood panels in rear cargo
- Gas Tank cleaned and re-lined
- Heat & A/C lines all cleared and running great
- NEW: clutch assembly, alternator, starter, distributor, fuel pump, water pump, power steering bracket, Champion aluminum radiator, muffler, Allen Grove brackets everywhere, thermostat, driver side window regulator, hood spring and latch, and geez so many other little things...

I built this rig up exactly how I wanted it...and never thought I would sell it. But I've made up my mind. So please take a look and. give a bid if interested. Otherwise, maybe just help spread the word - give me other suggestions on where to post this - and just wish me luck in finding a good home for "Goldie Hawnk".

Thanks so much
- Eric

Awesome 60. This is actually right down the street from me in Asheville based on looking at the videos on the river road by UNCA. I might be interested in coming to check it out, if the Wrx STi I have for sale can sell before this rig gets scooped up so I have some cash.

Hey you you are correct - we must be close in location. Keep your eye on the auction if you get the cash to be involved. I hope to have a great sale on BaT. But if not I'll be re-assessing my options and continuing to move forward with a sale by other means. I'll keep in touch on that if/when the time comes...

quick bump for this post - nearing the 24 hour mark for this Bring a Trailer auction. Please take a look if you're interested - and please feel free to ask me questions here or on BaT. She's definitely all ready to be found under someone's Christmas tree... Thanks!

Are you selling this here? What’s the mud price?

My BaT auction only has about 7 hours left. If my reserve is not met - the auction will be over and I'll get this FJ60 posted here (and elsewhere) for sale. Per the rules of BaT - they do not allow any other sales - or sharing of reserve amount - until the auction has concluded. Thanks for asking - and I'll definitely update this thread if/when needed!

Hello all - yes I could have made the sale at $18k on BaT - but I chose not to lower my reserve of $21k. So now this truck is free for my show and sell outside of BaT. Maybe I should look into how to properly update a post here...or maybe just do a new listing
