    Hello,

    I got my dream !!

    I am now the proud owner of a 97 FZJ 80 with only 48700 miles, fully loaded and locked. :D

    Since I am new to the board, I would like to greet everybody and say thank you for all the advices and information about the FZJ 80.

    I do not think so that I will face any problems with my dream because of low mileage and no towing but if, then I know where to get advice.

    In the next days I will take my dream into the bushes. I know he will not let me down. Maybe I will give up finally but not my car.

    So I wish all of you a nice ride in your dreams and a lot of success in the woods.

    Greetings,
    Mike

    Did you get the collectors edition or the limited? What did you pay for such a low mile rig if you don't mind me asking?

    No not the collectors edition. Price? You better don't ask. But I really don't care because I wanted this truck very badly and I am so happy.

    Some modifications? Yes, but what is the best.

    My rig has already the central lock switch, a ladder, spare tyre behind, front bumper with extra lights, rear bumper, roof rack and very important: my fridge inside :D

    Maybe somebody can give me advice what I really should modify to make it somehow special !! Or more special as it is already.

    Mike,
    Post up some pics of your truck and tell us what's underneath. We'll think of something... you can bet on that.

    What's first you ask? Get that brush bar off and slap an ARB on it! Then get OME'd and some new shoes.

    seems like 'roo bustin' equipment to me...

    oh, btw, another necessary mod: your detailer messed up for crying out loud (can't one trust anybody these days?) : switch that wheel back to the side where G** intended it to be... sheeesh..... <G>

    Overseas gets all the cool stuff. The bar is probably a dealer option. I like the 2 tones.

    The stuff hanging on that RHD beauty is indeed factory accessories for the Aisian market. Grille guard, ladder, tire cover lower rear bumper, ETC.

    C dan is it possible to get those ladders here in the states? Is the cost astronomical?

    Also is that a mirror near the spare tire?

    Yes, it is a mirror. With that thing I park my rig 10 mm close to a wall or other car.

    There must be a way to ship a ladder to the States. Not to big and not to heavy. Here we have many of these toys to modify our rigs. Many of them direct from Toyota !! Incl. of curtains for the windows.

    I will post a photo with curtain soon. (But not my truck !! :D)
