This is the 55 wagon in the tech dept. "FJ55 build up" It's current condition is prety much how it looks in the last part of the tech article (part 3.5) I'd say its like 80% done or so depending on whether you want a beater or a nice rig (it will never be nice!)

I don't wanna finish it, nor do I even want it anymore, so I will take $1600 for it. This rig does run, but would need to be trailered from my house. Here's a little list of stuff it has.

FJ60 axles, sprung over (2.5")
Chevy 327/toy 4spd/4spd case
35x15.5 swampers/15x10 alloys or 35x12.5 Mud Kings on chrome steel wheels
Power steering

The cruiser is located in Shingle Springs, CA.

Could you e-mail me some enlarged photos of your PS conversion and motor mounts/placement. I used to be able to click on the ones from teh tech articles and get a better look (at least I thought so) but cant seem to see them as well now. Just some nice close up photos would help me finish mine up. Use either [email protected] or [email protected] Thanks.

Jeff, my # is 530-647-2063. I want to take a look at your 55. Call me after 6pm and I'll stop by and check it out. This looks like the kind of project I am looking for, Thanks.

Yes it's still for sale, but if it does'nt sell this weekend I probably won't post it again for awhile.

I gave the Marfields to Doghouse, and the ARB is not going with it either.

The ARB has been sitting in my garage for about a year doing nothing.

55 still here, infact I havn't had any calls on it, just emails. After today I go back to work tomorrow night, then planning on having the baby on Tuesday, so if nobody buys it today, don't bother me please! I will be busy at home for awhile and not have time to show the cruiser.
