Excited for you and the updates of the "built thread." I've always wanted a FJ60 but never been able to pull the trigger. Off I go to look for one in the classifieds...

Thank you kindly. I am VERY excited, as I have wanted one for a long time. However, I am VERY nervous, as I have NEVER tackled the body work aspect of it......

Well trucker dropped it off. Triumph/Vette/Pro 4Runner on the truck. 

 

Took it for a 40 mile drive. Drives great. Isn't as solid and tight as the wife's suspension wise. But has K02 instead of the silly highway costco tires wife's FJ60 has. 

Mine needs a lot of work (body wise). But VERY happy with it. 

 

Only two pics in all that excitement

I was trying to figure out what was in front of it on the truck when you texted me. Now it makes sense. 

 

Enjoy it!

Well costs sounds like I bought a bunch of treasure.

 

Of course wife chimed in - "my 60 doesn't need any of those"

 

P.S. I owe you the email - week getting away from me. Will have the order details soon, my friend. Got the stamp done local ($17)

  • Rear quarter
  • Rear dog legs

All incoming. So have to figure out welding the rust out. 

 

  • Ordered new shocks. 

 

Well had an expensive lunch yesterday. We took both the 60s out. 

Wife commented, that hers need k02 tires like mine. She doesn't like the tires. So ordered new tires for her. 


My sand one - shocks are done. I need new shocks. Wife's blue rides like a dream. So shocks ordered for mine
