1970 with 350/350 combo. Picking up from Montana Friday, and dropping off my 80 series in trade.
I've some good plans for him, late model (81) axles, mini-truck brakes, longs, and 37 mtr's. Planning a SOA, running dakota springs front and rear. I added a pic of what the little truck looked like after being brought out of 20 years of storage which is when the PO picked him up.

I love the color. That looks good. I cant' say I'm too fond of the wheels though either. Overall nice 40!

The snow pictures are pretty awesome.

nice looking truck … looking forward to seeing your changes … I kinda like the FJC wheels on it but I have an FJC … would like OEM wheels and hub caps better, but of course, to each their own …

Looking good!

TH400 is pretty bullet proof, just make sure to double check tranny fluid after romping in snow. We managed to burn fluid in a last week in a built 350 SR5 pickup. Obviously the skinny pedal was beaten like redheaded step child, but even with a cooler.

So the build on Oliver is to start. '94 fzj e locker axles w/ slee high steer and Y link steering using 80 series parts, 37 mtr's, running 56" dakota springs front and rear (not sure on shocks yet). I'm not sure how many pics I'm going to take of this because i'll be trying to finish it in a weekend.
