As you can tell from my post count I am new to this forum, I'm also a newb first time FJ40 owner (less then 2 weeks). But I am a mechanic for a living, well today I was talking to my boss, who has been building a race car for the past few years. I know quite a few guys that are into racing and have even helped them out from time to time. But back to my question, I asked my boss how much money he had invested? He told me it was over 52,000, which is totally insane to me. But I was wondering, how much have you hardcore guys invested in your pride and joy FJ's. I realize some of you may block out exactly how much you have put out & some of you just don't want to know. I'm just real curious. I plan to get my Cruiser close to stock, before I even think about doing any mods. Just pricing the few parts I need gives my a headache. I understand this isn't a technical question, feel free to move it. I just didn't think it belonged in the chat forum.
