For Sale: 1972 Toyota FJ40 Landcruiser. Heavily modified so purists please avert your eyes! Complete Frame off build, built to drive on the street as well as on the trail. Owned since 2003. Looking to sell due to recent family addition, making it a total of 6! So a 2 door 2 seat off road truck does not fly any longer. Maybe an FJ80 is in my future.
Driven for over 10 years as an around town/trail rig. It has undergone a recent "re-restoration" including paint correction, loads of new parts and tying up of any loose ends. looking for $45k. Offers entertained.

Never "bounced" as it is an extreme trail truck not a bouncing buggy! It will do over 100mph on the highway while it makes relatively easy work of some serious off road obstacles. Save yourself years of sweat, tears and $$$$ building from scratch, and buy one already done.

It Ha
why does OP say it’s in New Hampshire. Who actually owns the vehicle? Kinda confusing having 2 posts stating opposing info
SOLD. It officially has a new home. From New Hampshire to California. Glad to know Jamie, her new owner is going to keep the dream alive! With some You Tube action to boot.

See the Youtube video above with some offroading in the California mountains.
PO Zak outfitted this rig to perfection. He has a auto shop in NH not far from Boston.
If I lived out that way, I would bring all my vehicles to him at Zak's auto... he know his stuff!
The FJ40 climbed all obstacles at Cleghorn Ridge Trail without issue. Now on to some other trails! Big Bear next and Dishpan

Hey, I know this is an old thread but have a question. What did you think of the Bestop soft top? That’s what you are running in the YouTube videos, right? Thanks!

Cleghorn is a cool video. What do you think about the SM465? Also, do you like the Bestop soft top? I’m putting an SM465 in mine and I am looking at the Bestop top.

Just saw your post... sorry for the delay.
Since that Cleghorn trip, went to Dusy Ershim, up in the Sierra Mountains... Crazy trail 33 miles, so you don't want to break down.
All the rigs there were on 40s (35s a must) and a Gladiator on 43s, just made it thru trees, but popped it's belly on Thompson hill and needed some quick patching and fluid donations!
The SM465 is great. Works all round for great 70mph cruising on the highway, but low gears perfect for crawling.

Here is the Dusy trail:

Right on! Those are all some nice rigs. Those trails out West look awesome (I'm on the East Coast). Keep making these videos!

I'm almost done installing my SM465. Should be ready in the spring.
