This FJ40 was completed by the hard work and donations of wheeling Arizona club members for my buddy Josh. Our efforts were rewarded by giving him the opportunity to wheel his finished rig before he passed away Nov 2008 at the age of 28 from cancer. I have had the FJ40 in my possession for the past two years and has provided many fun memories for me and my family. My intentions were to keep the FJ in use and maintained for Josh's two surviving boys, but his oldest wont be 16 for another 10 years. The reality is it will be best to sell the rig in its current condition and put money from the sale in an savings fund for Josh's boys.

Specs:
80.5in tall with street pressure
86in wide
107in wheel base

1970 FJ40, street legal, clean rockcrawler, 4 seater
Chevy 350, low hours, 1000 miles new edilbrock carb, long tube headers and magnaflow 3in exhaust.
Manual 4 speed, chevy 205
full width axles, D44 and 14B, both spooled
1000 miles on power steering box
Hydraulic assist power steering, High steer
Chevy disc brakes at all 4 corners
leaf sprung
Rancho 9000 front, MX6 rear shocks
38in TSL SX tires (90% thread) and matching spare, on 15X10in wheels with 3.5in BS
1.5in DOM Cage donated by crossedup offroad, boatsided, belly skid plate
Soft half doors and rag top, (no hardtop)

Is street registered
In the hot weather I had temp issues at highways speeds but not for trail runs. (needs radiator upgrade)

I did get an offer to trade for a wrist watch valued at $5700 today that I turned down... WTF craigslist finds some strange bartering.
