1973 / 2007 Toyota FJ-40 Buggy for sale

This buggy weighs 4600lbs ready to hit the trail - 50% of that is axles and tires alone, giving it a very low center of gravity. It was built to be comfortable, durable, and safe, leaving plenty of room between the occupants and the outside of the roll cage.

Stored in a climate-controlled garage, and 100% ready to hit the trail. We just don’t have the time to enjoy it anymore. Build thread: Keeping it low with Rockwells (a.k.a. under the knife again) | IH8MUD Forum

This is of course an extremely capable and well built rig. Watched it in action at Rausch Creek and she was pretty impressive. Last time I saw it she was looking pretty to boot............Gary S
