1970 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40

I have always had a soft spot for FJ40s, having spent my childhood in the back of one.  This Cruiser was much closer to stock than my father’s is though.  It was a hunting rig that I purchased off a ranch in Northern California.  I added a Skyjacker suspension and Toyo pizza cutter tires on refinished stock wheels with OEM hub caps.  The look was perfect in my opinion and this was such a fun vehicle to cruise around town in the summer with the top off.  Unfortunately, it was too clean to use for wheeling, and too slow to drive much further than around town.

Three speed manual transmission

Factory vacuum shift transfer case

Factory axles w/ 4.10 gears, open differentials, disc brakes, and Warn front hubs
