Gone to a good home! I was starting to get attached to driving this tank around town. I don't have a lot of Chevy knowledge, but it seemed pretty easy to work on.


Anybody interested in a cheap tow rig? I picked this up cheap and did a ton of work this past week; long story, but a contract fell through and now I have time to go to Georgia and grab my truck. I'll figure out what I have in it as far as parts go and let you all know what the price is. I paid $2k for it and dumped a bit, not looking to make any money if anyone here wants it. I prob have somewhere around $2600 in it. Runs and drives great. I think I have all the leaks/issues resolved, but will drive it more this week and make sure.

This week:

new starter, radiator and upper and lower radiator hoses, oil cooler lines, temp sensor, door lock motors, door jamb switches, new key fob for door locks and back glass, heater control valve and heater hoses, battery, new BFG KO2 tires. I replaced one door lock motor and have two more for the back. I also replaced a door handle and some trim. I also replaced the driver seat lower leather. It came with the KO2's, new calipers and rotors installed up front. Has new drums in still in the box for the back. Transmission fluid is brand new and I was told the filter was changed.

Known issues:

A/C doesn't work
Might have a tiny oil leak from timing cover, but is an easy fix. Hell I'll come to a tech day and fix it with you if anyone buys it.

Best of all, ZERO RUST and close to $1000 in tires.

It looks REALLY clean. If my father in law didn’t just get something else he would’ve been all over this
It needs a good shampooing, but I agree it's in great shape. When I went to look at it I figured it would be a rust bucket, but was pleasantly surprised.

Man, I've been wanting one of these for a while too
I posted it online for $3400 and have several people that want to see it. At $2600 it is a steal. I'm basically giving away 10 hours of my time and most of the risk, but like I said I have other vehicles in Georgia that can accomplish the same thing.

Only unknowns are AC, but it could be as simple as a top off and o-rings. Even if it's a compressor they are cheap on these ($130 on rockauto for a cheap version). I just drove it all morning and the oil hasn't even left a drop on the ground so it must be pretty minor; when I got it, it was leaking like crazy from the oil cooler pipes.... it was a total mess, but all done now.

My plan was to drive it as is for the winter to make sure I didn't find any other surprises, then if all was well mess with the AC later in the Spring.

man that thing brings back memories since it’s so clean, spent a lot of my youth carted around by multiple friends’ moms in those when they were new/new-ish in the mid to late 90s

Anyone looking for some 17x9 aluminum rims? My Pro Comp beadlocks came in, so I am going to have a set for sale soon. 3/5 are in very good to excellent shape and 2 have various levels of cosmetic damage. They are structurally 10/10 just a bit of rock rash on the outer edge. One is cosmetically a 7/10 and the other a 5/10.

Those model suburbans are beasts. we had a 97 same drivetrain and it went 300K. The AC in them is famous for leaking refrigerant at the rear condenser that is behind the right rear wheel in the hump that extends inside to the rear door. If that is it it is a simple fix. Pressure test it beofre you buy parts and coolant since the AC system holds 4 lbs of 134a.

A mudder is checking it out tomorrow for a winter beater mobile. Also, thanks for the heads up!

Not sure if this is the place for it, but my wife and I are trying to sell our home sooner than later. Long term plan was to stay here and renno it but life is unpredictable at times so we want to offload it and use the money to pay down debt among other things.

There is a very low mileage 2008 FJ cruiser currently in Asheville North Carolina. It has a supercharger and a stage 7 icon lift on it. A friend of mine was looking at buying it but his wife shut him down, however he ran a Carfax and has a ton of information on it if anybody is interested. It's a trail teams edition all white . They are asking $26,000 for it and I'm pretty sure there is at least half of that in parts alone. Just look on any of the classifieds like AutoTrader and you should find it

So this is very much a feeler and I’m not 100% I want to sell it. I’m only selling it if I can strike a deal on a specific truck. I’ve been going back and forth with the owner of the other truck for a bit now. The slower the transaction develops the more I start to reconsider selling this to buy it! So Ill throw it out there. PM me for details if you’re interested. I bought this from TRFCSUX earlier this year.
It’s a FJ62 with 13X,XXX miles, H55 5 speed, Toybox, ARB lockers, Longfield axles, 4.88s, full float rear, 37 inch tires...
