Way cool truck. Looks nice and straight. I can't think of anything on an FJ60 that would cost that much to do. Get a manual and a set of metric wrenches. Everything you mentioned is something you can do in a weekend. Find some local Cruiserheads and buy the beer and they'll get it on the road in no time.

Wrenching is gospel for me but the truck is 500 miles away and not a runner.
Plus, I find myself with very little time these days. Granted I had it shipped ($700-800) it would still take me another year just to get it road worthy.

It also needs both axles looked after and rebuilt suspension.

Been talking with TLC4x4.com but I aint got that kind of coin! They'd like to drop in a Chevy Vortex and gold plate everything plus a blank check.

Scorpion, They are very easy to wrench on and good used parts can be found cheap. if you haven't already, check out ih8mud.com. Lots of great advice and a good classified section. Also lists of cruiser mechanics that might be close.

Matte black? Colorado plates? Cummins logo on the 1/4 panel? Too funny if it is... its parked down the street from my place in Arlington.

still miss my old 84 FJ60 that I drove for 20+ years ... dead solid reliable!!!

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.

Wish those were an option here. Would make a great little, simple pick-up truck.

I'd like to research more on a diesel swap. I'm sure ill be ready for a new motor In a year or so. 10 mpg is going to be bad but luckily it wo t be a daily driver.

If I owned this one, I'd freshen up the entire drive line, but would NOT consider re-spraying it.

At most it would get a clear coat or linseed treatment.
