It's Back!!!!! Fj40 Rc Car Body

just got a call from bk. he mentioned that proline just re-released the fj40 body although it's with a different name. i guess toyota did'nt feel to good about them using the name.

anyways, here's a preview. they're available at hobby shops now:

They need to make a fj60 top... That would fit my Revo perfect!

They kind of messed the front grill up but probably did it to keep toyota off their backs. Still way better at 1/4th the price of an original
I just got done installing mini birfs in mine the other day

When you said you were working on the Cruiser, this is not what I thought you meant.

This is another scale fj-40 that impressed the hell out of me when I first started looking on the rccrawler.com forum...

The last one is the most realistic....after making the climb you back down to try it again and flop over. Sounds like something Tom would do

If I could get all the parts over here in Europe, I'd build one so that I had SOMETHING to do while I'm stuck at work.
