1972 Fj40 with a Chevy 305 V8 ( lighter with a lot more power than a stock 2F, plus better gas mileage than a 350), Weiland dual plane intake, matched Edelbrock 500 cfm carb w/ elec. choke. Stock radiator with high flow water pump and an elec. auxillary fan, bikini top and hard top. High torque starter. Outside the rail headers hooked to flowmaster mufflers and HD exhaust. Factory 3 speed trans and t-case, with custom HD drive shafts. 4" Smokey Mountain Suspension from TPI with long anti-inversion shackles with matched length Black Diamond shocks. Full cage roll bar, Line X like liner interior, Spector's premium bench seat covers, VDO guages in a stainless steel cluster, Sunpro Tach., Grant wheel turning Saginaw manual steering. The axles are from a '77 FJ40 so it has disc brakes up front, I added stainless steel flexible brake lines front and rear plus and the rear has a Detroit locker, both with 4:10 gear ratio. Aluminum 15x8.5" wheels W/ 35x12.50 Mud King tires w/ about 60% tread left. Man-a -fre rear tire and can carrier. This cruiser was built using high quality parts to achieve a high quality product, it is a great compromise between off road ability and on road manners. It drives and stops straight, easily cruises at 80mph and turns heads everywhere. Everything works well except for the speedo cable.

Vehicle is located in Forney, TX
