I will do this one day with something I buy. Pick it up, buy some spare fluids, change belts and hoses (if needed) and a harbor freight tool kit and hit the road.Congrats on the purchase. I recommend flying out and driving it back. There are few greater experiences than driving a 40 something year old Cruiser cross country.
There are good people all the Interstate 40 that will be more than gracious with their time and skills to help out if you need it. No better way of learning your new to you FJ40 than getting out and soaking up some nostalgic windshield time.
The temperatures will be great also. Roll the windows down, open the kick vents and do a Rt 66 tour.
