I love that paint job, my wife has a hankerin' for an FJ40 (Not in the budget right now, but...) and I think it would be sweet if we did something like that to it, if/when, plus I'm sure any 40 we can afford is gonna need a paint job....

I hope you and the wife are doing well, we've got your backs bro!

you are the FIRST guy that has said that.

how much do you want to spend, what are you looking for? I can keep an eye out for you here?

you know I really do think that it looks better in the camo then the toyota tan.

There's really no $$$ in the budget right now... Too many stinkin' bills. But a pre-75 FJ40 would be good, so there would be no smog issue here in CA. Ideally I'd like to swap in a Toyota Turbo Diesel so it would get decent gas mileage....

and Next? have you done any interior mods? Hehehe

replaced the center console with a ammo box.
took a board, cut, padded and bolted to the top.
I like it because when you are getting tippy you can just lock it shut.
I am not sure of the cal, but it was just taller then the average 50 cal box.
other then that cb, radio, hidden switches. cut extra holes for the additional shifters.

Wow, I just read the whole thread! Very inspiring. I love the "home brew" style of build out. You guys have some pretty neat tricks! Great job! I'm proud of you!!

I am doing this because I am bored and love toyota's.
have not got out wheeling in some time.
any questions about anything. Man that is ALOT of views for the lack of comments.
for the positive comments. Thanks.

I sure would like to get my garage back, but I have to do the remodle on the house to get the 2000 sq ft of maple flooring out of my garage.

bought a basket ball court and pulled up the flooring.

anyone else have any drive way tech to add to this?
