Good morning,

Slightly outside your year-range... I have a desmogged 1978 Federal Spec FJ40 That I’m considering selling. It’s registered, here in Clark County, asa “Classic Vehicle”, which restricts you to 5000 miles per year.

Registering outside Clark County (but, not in Washoe Couwould allow unlimited mileage.


She has her original 2F engine, original 4 speed transmission and original transfer case.

Her odometer clocks 5,343 miles (so, at least 105,343 miles). Noidea if her odometer has rolled over more than once, or if the 105k is an accurate total mileage.

I’ve had her for 6.5yrs and have driven her ~12-13k miles in that time. Her engine was rebuilt in Aug, 2015, at 95,849 miles. So, her 2F engine has about 6,500 miles and 5 years, since the rebuild.

Her oem Aisin carburetor was rebuilt and performance tuned by a carb expert in Burbank, CA.

I replaced the distributor, coil and igniter with a DUI and she now easily cruises at 65-70mph.

She has the oem main fuel tank and a 20+ gal auxiliary tank, BOSS airbags in the rear, a Viair 350c compressor, under the hood, a Hi-Lift Jack and locking FJMount Hi-Lift Mount, a roof rack (with a wooden box, for spares, and dual 4” PVC “bazookas”, to carry tent poles, etc.), a locking ammo box/tool box on the front bumper, off road LEDs (all 4 sides).

I’ve reached an age (71.5) and encountered health issues that prevent me enjoying her the way I always have. Off road driving and wrenching on her are no longer fun for me. One 2-hour driving trip, or leaning into the engine compartment, for a couple of hours is debilitating. I’m exhausted for 2 days.

I have all of the emissions equipment, except the EGR subsystem (it was gone, when I bought her), but I don’t know what works and what doesn’t.

I also have various spare parts

There are no jump seats and no heaters. I’ve never needed a heater for her and I’ve driven in snow and camped at 5*.

If she’s something that interests you and is within your budget, please send your personal email and I’ll grant you access to a folder on my google drive, with pictures.

Cheers

Danny

Yup, Would not like to see Solace in Solitude leave the 'mud' family. Great pictures and great writing from him. Wait until some of the other Mud members hear he may be selling his rig!!
 
All these years I've been reading your posts, Danny I can understand why you're doing it. Doesn't make any easier though. More tears! :crybaby::crybaby::crybaby:

It’s not easy for me either... I just can’t do it anymore.

I’m hoping I can recover enough breathing and energy to continue to do some of it, at least, with my Tundra and 20’ travel trailer.

Sometimes you have to change some things up to keep enjoying life, I hope you stick around the 40 section after you sell your rig Danny.
