Hello All, brand new to this site and a '91 FJ75 - Troopy.
Kinda feel like I woke up from a pecan pie & bourbon binge blackout, but with a 'new' big friend next to me (in the driveway)
It's my second Toyota ('04 Tacoma) but a whole 'nuther ballgame, of course.
Landcruiser time... Here goes!

Right you are! Went out grab some with my phone, and it died from the cold. So had to grab the 'real' camera, find the card reader....

What camera are you using???
Sat there for a minute staring - it makes your truck look like a scale model.
(and if it is then shame on me)

Whoops, that's my 'wide open' habit at work. But the Troopy is life-sized (I think it scared my Tacoma when it showed up)
But that camera is a Nikon D800 with an old 50mm f1.4D lens onnit. That last one was at F1.4 (got a little art school on that, sorry) the rest were shot at F2-2.8 I think.

And since y'alls knows much more than me about how these arrive on our shores, I'd appreciate any constructive heads ups/insights to carry it forward and use the heck out of it. I've read about every 75 Post on here over the last months, (Y'all have some amazing rigs!)
Planning to travel with my son (10 and counting) while he's still ok hanging with Dad. It's got the 3F now, looks to be in fine shape and runs strong. Tho' I had my heart set on Diesel, this is certainly a truck to be thankful for.

That’s a gulf spec truck for sure. And there’s no shame in the 3F. I’m quite pleased with mine. Mine is also a 1991... but in nowhere near the condition of yours. Great find!

Not as many as Oregon, but the Northern Front Range of Colorado is gettin' crowded with Troopies these days! There's mine in Boulder, yours in Lyons, and I know of at least one in Ft. Collins and another in Denver. There was one in Nederland, too, but I don't know if it's still there. Hay mas?

Ah, is this one off KSL?


In any case, looks great!
Ha! I think it was that one, but I'm afraid I didn't pay retail.. ;) And yes, it is in great shape, and I am now broke!

Does anyone know if the'89 with the 3B in Colorado sold??
That was a sweet project, priced well but just needs someone with a shed to work it up right. Which I, sadly, do not have.

I just got an email from the seller--he says he has a deal pending for the body only, but will still have the chassis (with VIN + powertrain ) available if the deal goes as planned. @RHINO , you planning to build something special? Or are you not the "body only" buyer?
