First post. A couple of shots of an ongoing FJ40 rebuild project.
The donor "was" a 1984 FJ40 soft-top, which has been lifted, lengthened, broadened and modified to the extent that only the floor-pan of the original tub is the same (but just barely).
Some of the stuff done, thus far:-
60 Series diffs, with 7/37 ring-pinions.
60 Series leaf springs.
15/42/15 Super Swamper TSLs.
Rancho shocks and steering stabilizers.
Engine swap - 2F petrol to 1HZ diesel.
Interior roll cage.
Sparco 5 point harness seats.
Body mods - four full doors, four pipe doors, removable hard-top, rear pickup tub (removable), custom-made front mudguards and rear wheel arches, nudge-bar/side-step.
Some still-planned activities:-
Turbo-charging / inter-cooling the 1HZ.
ARB air lockers.
Upright "chimney" exhaust in the rear of the tub.
Paint (perhaps! )
um...ok. I guess newbies don't get to post pictures? The rebuild thus far; chronicled below...

|yzftaco||I'd like to know how the rack is attached to the roof... I guess it's thru the soft top? Kinda lame considering those tops are a mint from tlc|

I was floored by the body work and clean engine swap. It was custom built to the customers requests and lucky for me the PO just drove it on the street
I just don't think Shannon could do a mild build so this is what he did.

14bolt/10bolt ( gonna be replaced HP Dana 60)
Intellidash monitoring system
Leaf spring front
4 link double shackle leaf sprung rear suspension ( i dont know WTF this is but sumbichlldo 70 mph all day)
Powdercoated rollcage tied to the suspension seats which is tied to the frame
5 pt harnesses
Custom tub with raised inner fenders
Campbell enterprise Fiberglass hood with molded fenders
York air compressor
Front ARB locker
Detroit rear locker
Roll cage as air tank
Custom steering column with quick release steering wheel
35 gallon aluminum gas tank

Amazing thread! Just had to share this one though its kinda outa place with the majority of rigs here, but I am into the four door 40 idea these days. These guys seemed to have done a good job, though probably only for Warren Buffect and friends
[edit: the pics seem to have vanished so replacing them with others from this article on the TLC Icon FJ44]
On a completely different note, I just thought this was an amazing photograph:

Finally finished getting the 42 trail ready.
Longs, 5.29s, ARBs, and some stuff. Currently trying to find a RHD 60 PS box to use for hydro.

I love this thread! That being said, I'm not nearly talented enough to wheel a full bodied rig, so I had to make my FJ40 dreams in tube. Nothing Yota except a hood, so let me know if it doesn't belong here...I'll still love FJ40's.

I really like this one. ; )
