    My name is Dave Ollanik and I am in Tucson. Bought my 1973 FJ40 early this year and have painted it and have been putting it back together(I bought it mid restoration). It has a 2F engine from a donor FJ60 along with the 4 speed transmission. Disc brakes, new tires and wheels and power steering added by PO. All items I wanted in a fj40 were already completed.

    I hope to find other FJ's to do some off road trips. Right now my co-pilot is my dog (see picture)
    Debating on A/C and will eventually finish painting top and doors.

    Welcome Dave! You have a very nice FJ40. Did you paint it yourself? Is that a Toyota shirt?

    Yes - I painted myself. 15 years ago I restored an old Willys jeep. I like the FJ much more!

    My friend is GM at Avondale Toyota in Phoenix - he sent me the shirt!!!

    Greeting my name is Marshall. I've owned Tacomas and tundra in the past. Now I'm in the market for a 80 or 100 series LC. Eric Murphy from CB toyota referred me to Copper cruiser.
    That's the intro part.
    I enjoy the outdoors, fishing, camping and shooting. I'm a US navy veteran. Hopefully I'll find a LC to finally own. Cheers!

    Hello. J.C. in Southern-most Arizona. Long time reader of IH8Mud. Have always wanted a LC since I was a kid and about a year ago, found a 1995 FZJ 80 I could afford. Added 2.5" OME, ARB front, 12k Warn, 285/75/16 BFG Muds, baselined everything -- new radiator, water pump, fan clutch, hoses, PHH, knuckle rebuild, wheel bearings, brakes, dist. cap, et al. Could NOT have done it without IH8Mud and this group. Live on small off grid ranch, so the LC gets a regular work out. Long term -- looking to make some overland journeys with the wife.

    Hi folks. I traded my 4Runner in on a 2016 URJ200 a few months ago and I love it. We use it for camping and rock climbing all over Arizona. So far I just have some all terrain tires and rock warriors on it, but there will be a lot more to come. In my spare time I'm an electrical engineer in Chandler.
