Greetings; Just wanted to say hello introduce myself and let everyone know what a really great site/source of info I think this place is. I sure wish I had known about it before I bought my FJ40 (Jul 05, a 1978). Immediately after which I had tons of questions, most of which were answered by looking in, and scanning old posts. My cruiser started out in Ecador which I thought was going to be great as it was rust free, and in what I would call really good shape as 30 year old vehicles go. After the fact I learned that it seems only North Americans are willing to pay extra for lock out hubs, power steering, and who knows what else. If any of you have any info on what other differences I'm apt to find I would sure appreciate a heads up on it. I won't get to drive or play with the cruiser for a few more months as I am presently finishing up my tour of duty in Iraq (Black Hawk driver, I'm sure you have flown into the lovely FOB Speicher a time or 2). Anyway, thanks again for the insight, I look forward to learning from you all.
