The Build:
No expense spared, full frame off restoration, all aluminum body 1979 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser. This builds completion was meticulous in every detail, covering over 10 years the build was the passion of the prior owner. Now with its second owner since completion and under 200 miles since engine and transmission build by Iron Pig in Fredericksburg, VA this FJ is ready for anything. From the daily cruise to the trail this FJ is ready for what you can throw at it. The vehicle was stripped down to the frame of every nut and bolt and fitted with an all aluminum Aquala body including the inner and outer fenders, half doors, full tub, cowl, storage tailgate, front bib, and windshield frame. This vehicle has no rust anywhere and may not for another 30 years from now. The entire interior floor was sprayed with bed liner material to give an abrasive finish to the floors. The receipts on this build for just parts alone total well over $40k not to include the hours and hours of labor. Almost every nut and bolt is new to this build, where possible no fasteners were reused. You can easily smoke the tires on this 4 speed torque equipped 1983 2F engine, with DEI Electronic distributor, Manafre Ceramic Coated and tuned header and carb spacer, LiveWire plug wires, and brand new Weber 32 DGV carb. For the trail this vehicle is equipped with dual batteries kept charged by a Mean Green alternator, and a high torque starter tonget it fired up. For recovery should your Jeep friend need you a Warn 8274 self recovery winch with wired remote (operate from the cab) is available. Keeping the trail lighted in front is a set of focus adjustable Lightforce Striker 170 trail lights. Crawling the hills is made easier with an Advanced Adapters twin stick shifter (operate high/low in 2WD/4WD), Richmond Powertrax Locker in the rear, Specter front roll cage, interior trail light for map reading, CB radio, lev-o-gauge, Safari Snorkel for the creek crossing, and for those cooler days an under dash heater from Vintage Air. The white face gauges are high end units from VDO instruments including speedometer, tach, fuel level, oil pressure, water temp, volts, and a clock. The mirrors are one of a kind from a Polaris UTV and are perfectly suited for the highway and especially the trail with their fold away design. The driver sits behind a Lacarra Mark 4 Steering wheels and on Corbeau reclining seats with sliders that are as comfortable as they are supportive with Simpson 4 point belts to keep you planted at every angle including wrong side up. The braking is provided by enormous 4 wheel disk brakes with Poterfield Pads and an equally matched BTB Products 8.5" Booster with a massive 1-1/8" Master Cylinder. Providing excellent trail articulation and still road worthy is an Old Man Emu lift and steering stabilizer, anti-inversion shackles, with all shackle pins containing grease fittings, and u-joint sliders.
