Hi Guys: As some of you know, I am dealing with some extremely high medical bills ($50K!) from my daughter's medical problems last year. My insurance will not pay this and I am fighting them, but in the meantime I feel compelled to pay my debts, it is a person pride and dignity thing for me. As a result of this, my budget has gone from ample and flexible to pretty much paycheck to paycheck. I have drained my savings and borrowed from my 401K (I broke all my rules to try to pay this down)... I haven't lived like this in over 15 years... I am working very hard to not have to abandon my 40 or give up other things, but I find myself in a bit of bind and am short about $500 on this month's budget. I'll be making some tough decisions to avoid this problem again next month and into the future, but in the short term I am hoping some of you might be interested in to buy some of my parts from me. I have...

OE 78 exhaust manifold
78 FJ40 chassis (no title)
old one-piece header (needs media blast and powder)
OE springs from the 68
OE axles from the 68
OE (ish) rollbar out of the 68
Four Pro Comp alloy wheels with some very rough 33" tires on them. They will 6-bolt Toyota.

I also have a brand new set of four BFG MT KM2s I won in a contest back in May. They are 35x12.5 R15 that I'll reluctantly part with for $750. All other items are "make me an offer"

Can you post a pic of the wheels and are they 15 inch or 16 inch? Thanks
Sure! They are 15" and show their age a bit. I had planned to have them media blasted and powder coated and maybe some snow wheeling tires put on them at some point. Even a Raptor Liner would look cool and mask some of the wear.

Those are awesome wheels. I have my swampers on a set just like them. They are light and the valve stem sits in further so the rocks don't reach out and touch them. These would work out for my sons mini. Those tires don't look that bad. What price should I tell him.

Make me an offer. I have no idea how to price them and I am a bit “bias” (tire pun!) right now due to my needs. :) PM me here or IM me on FB or send me a text whatever works. You are welcome to come by and see them too.

Pic n pull prices are about $25 per rim, but you don't get nice ones like these.

Ok. So now all that stuff is free. 78 chassis (no title), 68 axle assemblies, springs, and a cage... well OEM bar with some DIY additions to make a cage. I'll be hauling it all to the scrapyard in a couple of weeks.
