Now that Fiat has entered the fray, and the continued decline of an American icon is now a certainty, the idea of purchasing a restored from the ground up, inside and out, Toyota FJ-40 makes more sense now....

I remember seeing something in fourwheeler or 4wheel&offroad a year or 2 ago about a company that was building "new" FJ-40's. they had alumimum bodies and I think a couple different engine options (one of them a V-8), but they were pretty pricey too. I wish I could remember their name. Looked just like the old FJ-40's too. I gotta admit, if toyota would build something that resembled the old FJ's a litte more closely, had a solid front axle, and had a soft top, I'd be all over it.

I was trailing with one last summer. Man a lift with leaf springs? I was getting sea sick just following it. Finally it wallowed on a very minor obstacle and tipped on its side. I always wanted one when I was a young fellow, but now I'm likin' the JK much more.

Well, I'll just hijack my own thread... no mods are needed here...McNutty has stopped posting National Geographic like nudes of girls, and Billy Goat has stopped posting pics of pre-pubescent Asian transvestites...we can police ourselves....:thefinger:;)

just like new, maybe better

I saw a fully restored FJ at the autoshow. The company doing it does an awesome job. They're just like new, maybe better, but like 40-50K.
Billy, Your truck still has a few miles left in it. And it I remember correctly there are still a couple of places left to dent it up more.... :) Go Rocks!
