    Just got my first FJ40. Jun. 81'. 653 Olive Green.

    10 years of waiting for the right time and right rig... and now she's home! Here are a few pictures. I will be sure to post more but right now its time to cruise!
    Cheers,

    I’m in SanAntone, once I get my 40 up to speed a little more, maybe grab a coffee. @davegonz is in your area, he’s super handy!
