    My brand new (to me) 1975 FJ40

    So Last weekend I flew out to Colorado purchased a brand spanking new 1975 landcruiser, and by brand new I actually mean new to me. I then departed and a several day adventure driving it back.

    So the whole trip was problem free, and now that I got the rig home the clutch slave decided to act up, so I did the only thing I know how to do and replaced both the master and slave today as well as the rubber hose, also adjusted the free play to spec etc. works great now.

    Anyway some pics of the trip.
    In colorado at a fellow mudders place.

    In Wyoming...

    South Dakota




    So then I got her home and added some shackles.


    So my plans are for a 4" lift utilizing alcan springs and bilstein shocks, some 33" tires, winch, snorkel, hardtop and a safari rack and of course make all the necessary repairs along the way.

    Oh also I intend to use this rig for some pretty sweet adventures, so far I think an alaska road trip is the correct direction for such a rig....
