Any other FJ 40 owners in here?

Mines a '76 with a chev 327 and a chev powersteering conversion done to it. I also have a hydraulic winch on it. Just finished an 80% restoration. I also had an overdrive unit installed when the motor was put in. Cruises pretty good down the road now. Got a locker in the front but not the rear. I'll have my brothers kid put up a pick next time I see him.

Worked on 2 of them when I was in Anchorage. One was a 74 that was semi-running, roomate got for $300. I rebuilt the carb, replaced some ignition stuff, etc... anyway sold it for $700 I think. Body was really rusty.

2nd one is a 72, my other roomate, Hoov, is building. Put in a Chev 350, FJ40 4 speed trans with the 3 speed T Case. Disc brake conversion, lock rights, FJ55 springs in the back, 38x14.5 Ground Hawgs.

< The 40, this is the result of three years and piecing together 2 40s to make one. Rebuilt massaged 2F, SM465, 3 spd xfer, SOA, SR, Flipped springs, Locked front and rear.
Also have a 71 FJ55 that is in the process of getting de-rusted. For a previous Calif vehicle it was in sad shape. Later 2F, 4 Spd, 4 speed case with fairey overdrive. Needs to do an SOA and finish the chopped top.
