Found this in the garage when I got back from CM07! It runs and drives, the Wife picked it up for cheap for parts for her LX450. She wants some of the stuff off of it so she's not parting it out yet. Only 90K on it, no lockers, HARD hit on the right side put it on it's roof. Oh, the possibilities!

Oh wow. Here comes the sawzall.

My list of things to do on it would be the slee 6 inch, full skid plate, sliders, custom front and rear bumpers, 38 inch Iroks, re gear, and rock crawl the hell out of it.

If the frame is not bent, I will buy what's left!

That is my big question too, I think I'm going to drag it down to a body shop that has one of those frame machines and see what's up...the left hand doors are sprung from the roll but the body is resting where it should...the body on the right side near impact has shifted inboard about an inch or so, sheetmetal around the body mounts has crumpled, maybe the the frame held up. The guy driving is fine but had a hell of a ride!

Does your wife have an unmarried sister? :D

Not for me but I'm sure there are a lot of dudes out there looking for a wife like yours :cheers:

Just curious,
Would you really want to lift it 6+ inches??
Personally, I would buggifie it, run some 850 863 coils and remove any offending sheet metal below the 37" tire mark.
But hey thats just me....

What about a landcruiser being wrecked in that garage...don't see it...but I did see a fricken amazing garage full of toys.

Is that some type of picture you stare at for hours to see a wrecked landcruiser??

no wife goes out and drags home a piece like that. you only wish friend.

perhaps do a christo job with it. bob the back and a flatbed. cut off the top and cage it. spool in back with ARB in front and go go go.

We both knew about it, but she used her own money, drug it home, and clings tightly to the title. I may get to swing the sawzall, but she will be drawing the lines...she still has her first car, a 68 Firebird 400, and no, it's not an automatic;)

I'll tell you later about the time I came home from a trip and found that She and the daughters had pulled the engine from the Firebird...:eek:
