Finally got an f-toy. Any others in Illinois?

So after a great deal of searching and thinking I have found an F-toy. I was going to build one out of the 85 ext. cab I have sitting in my back yard but I just found a great deal on one that's closer to being done.

What it's got.
FTOY 501 (HREW)
-It is about 80% done
-Pane(got propane kit)
-22r
-dual cases
-5:71 gears
-RUF
-chevvies in rear
-chassis mounted to 85 frame
-panels done except roof
-FJ brake upgrade,chevvies
-aluminum rad, e-fan etc
-Front axle has been rebuilt with the exception of the third member
-The dual cases have stock gears and a trail gear doubler
-The crossover steering is from trail gear as well

Now I just need to go pick it up in Georgia and Let the Fun Begin!

To Do List
-driveshafts
-backseat
-shocks
-harnesses
-brake lines
-mount propane tanks
-blow some money!

I can't wait! Let it Begin!
