SOLD PENDING Idaho - 1996 FZJ80 Triple Locked (1 Viewer)

Jul 18, 2010
Vehicle Model
  1. 80 Series
Idaho, United States
Outside Link
I have a binder with records of virtually everything purchased for this vehicle over the years. And digital maintenance records since my purchase ten years ago. The pictures under the truck that look like there is dirt/mud caked on it is the result of an oil based rust preventative that the PO put on, which doesn't look nice but has protected the frame well.

Melmwood, Thank you, I kept thinking of things that could go wrong and it turned into a pretty good baseline list.
I grew tired of the tent on the ground scene but didn't want a RTT and decided to make a good setup for sleeping and storing most everything inside.

Awesome rig. Do you still have the rear seats?

EDIT: Re-read the listing. Back seats yes, third row, no.
