So when is the next wheeling trip? Next month for the meeting or anyone plan on going sooner?
With my truck going away on Sunday and not being sure when a new one will arrive, I'd say it will be at the meeting at the earliest for me.
Did you regear yet?
I hadn't planned on regearing the Taco yet. Just replaced the PS Pump and Rack. I have been thinking about building some bumpers and I really need to get some sliders as this was a little to close for comfort (see pic). I have been spending to much time and money sourcing parts for the 40. I am hoping I will get to some actual wrenching done soon.
My bad, for some reason I thought you were getting in on Pete's (peepers) regearing day with Landtank.. or maybe Ken (KLF).
Evey rig i get I promise myself I'll put sliders on it and I never do.. I REALLY need to do it this time.
Have you made a decision as to what type of cruiser you are going for?
The 4-5 thousand dollar kind.
You'd look really cool driving a 40!
there is a locked white 80 in Haverhill last I looked.
I sure would.
It's a real stretch in my budget though. The "CFO" has firmly nixed the "finance-a-forty" plan so I'm looking at FJ60's, in particular a local one with a V8.
What ever you get you have to keep it this time!
Dave are you going to be happy with a 60? The only reason I ask (not putting 60's down in anyway) is that I thought you were looking for more of a classic cruiser.
I'm not jumping into anything right away.
For $4-5k you should be able to find something classic in that price range. Just don't settle for something that you won't be completely happy with.
FJ40 for $5k
The ongoing balance of needs, wants, and budget.
We *need* something that can function as a "2nd car" when necessary, and ideally tow a small popup camper or boat.
BUT we want something that can handle stock -to-moderate offroading as well.
If that FJ55 is still for sale that seems like it would be a good compromise as I know that FJ40s are not always practical.
Especially with the 350 in it (for towing). Working on getting more details by email and I'll need to get down there and look at it.
Dave - I live in Natick and could easily have a look at the 40 and take some pics. Just let me know.
Thanks for the offer Randy, much appreciated.
thanks for the reminder on the gears...l must order them. still waiting on the bumper and more susp. parts. cant wheel til those are all in and installed. i hope its not more than a couple of weeks!
