Thread: The FJ60

  1. Default The FJ60

    I really enjoy this forum. Lurker for about a year now. Been into landcruisers for about 10 years now and really want to build a 60/62 series into an expedition vehicle. I had one that was pretty nice, but needed to sell for a Minivan a few months ago. Since then I picked up a flood victim with a decent body.

    Definitely have a ton to learn about expedition vehicles, but I have a few Ideas for the 60.

    The first picture is my old 1987 5spd, locked 2F 60. I really miss that rig.
    The next few pictures are of a 1989 FJ62. I'll be using a 1984 FJ60 frame with the FJ62 Axles and Body.

    My youtube handle is fjtoys if you want to see the video's of the tear down. I found snails on the head when dissasembling. Other than that, its just a tear down right now.

    Cheers
