yep, a FJ62 auto with 280,000 km.
price was right
interior is really nice
frame is solid
previous owner sunk a s*** load of money into it and then it just quit, suspected fuel pump, got pissed and parked it.
might make a great recipient for the 5 cyl diesel, even on the worst days he will almost double the fuel mileage of the gas engine AND he has the ability to run stinky veggi fuel.
rims are really good shape
tires are in great shape
brakes have been redone
i am thinking we might have a new Cruiserhead in the making boys , make him feel welcome:
boss? yah, he works for me and he is a mini truck guy for the last few years.
after seeing first hand how much tougher the land cruiser drivetrain and frame was he decided to take a chance on getting a cruiser.
he is on a tight budget so he took what he could find. yah, it is a girlie rig, but the potential is there.
he has developed quite the talent for fabrication so i expect to see some decent armor built and installed.
he also has aquired a respect for the qualities of a diesel so, as he posted, a diesel drivetrain will be going in.
he doesn't have much spare time so posting on mud will be sporatic but there will be updates for those that want to keep an eye for them.
