only reason I sold her was fuel mileage ... 12-14 mpg sucks when fuel prices sky rocketed after Katrina.

currently driving a 12 Cummins 4x4 stick, 20-24 mpg. weight 8,300lb vs 5,300 for FJ60. that's even with worst aerodynamics than FJ60.

a project on my long term list is find a clean FJ60 with a dead motor, then drop-in a 4BT Cummins. end result will be a dead reliable FJ60 with air conditioning that gets 28+ mpg.
