Hi my name is Dan, I'm not on the twelve step plan. I like beer and cruisers.

My first cruiser was a 71 FJ40 I bought while I was in high school. It was my first car and I still regret selling it. My current Cruiser is a 75 FJ40. Right now it lives in differnt boxes and locations, mostly in my garag but a few parts are in my storage shed. I may actually be driving again by the end of summer.

Hows it going?

My name is Jordan and I am origanally from south dakota and joined the USMC and ended up getting stationed at Bridgeport, CA. I have a 1968 Toyota LandCruiser FJ-40 and it is what i like to call my "pride and joy". Not a very pretty vehicle, for it does need quite a bit of work done to it but hopefully I can get it done within my time in the service while I have a guarenteed paycheck on its way twice a month. Any one who has a decently inexpensive way to combat rust and other slight problems, feel free to help

What kind of station is there at Bridgeport?
Every Cruiser has a hidden inner beauty that is only appreciated by the choosen. You must one of us.
I've been dealing with rust by the wackinchop method.
Hope you can make it to some of our runs. The club site is down right now but I expecte to have that fixed shortly. Our next run is scheduled for 9-24 on Fordyce, if you think you can make it PM me for meet time and location.

Howdy my name is Jeremy. I have had a 62' FJ40 for almost two years and I am now finally getting around to building her up. I have lots to do and no $$$ to do it with. I am hoping to get her going by summer time!? Only time will tell!! Hoping that I can get with some guys that know what they are doing and guys that are new to this and just want to shoot the s***! Hope to see you guys around!

Wanted to be there but work called. Got to make the money before you can spend it! Maybe next month. I have alot of questions and not alot of answers. I love my LC but dont really know what I have and what I should do with what I have.

Here are some of my goals:
1. Power Steering Conversion
2. SOA? of Spring Lift
3. New front axle to get rid of ball and claw?
4. Inside Heating and Lights
5. Engine Swap? and Running Gears?

Everything with a question mark means I am not sure. I hear different things all the time.

Basically what it comes down to is I have a 62' FJ40, all OEM except the seats and seat brackets and tires and wheels. I am not sure what is under the hood except for the 1F with a 3 Speed Tranny and a centered rear axle. I need any and all help to get her up and running good. And yes she does run.

Thanks for all of you patience!

If you have a centered rear axel a lot has been changed from stock. If it is running why don't you joins us on our next run? It is a mild trail, hell I'm driving my full size stock truck. Meet time and location will be posted here as soon as availble.

My name is Billy or Jason, which ever. I've lived in Truckee for pretty much my whole life. I'm 17 and my 80 is my first car. I enjoy out-mobbing my friends in their jeeps, and seeing their astonished expressions. It's completely stock for now, MT sliders and an ARB bull bar are on their way. Soon I hope. I'm looking forward to going on one of these expeditions with all you.

Jason.

Hi Jason and Dan,
It was great meeting you guys and your family members Saturday. Hope to see you again soon.

I think Alvero may have given Jason a few ideas of what an 80 can be.

And I'm really interested to see Dan's daughters mini truck.
