'72 FJ40 (29th Aug 10 at 11:00pm UTC)
Made a road trip up to Ukiah yesterday at the butt crack of dawn to pick up the new project rig. Needs a bit of work but hey dont all rigs need work at first. Got some big plans for this bad boy hope they fall into place like i want them to.

Looks like you bit off a lot to chew there. Good luck with the build. Has that cruiser been on craigslist lately?

Yeah there's a lot to do but I just switched plans from the 4runner to the cruiser so I already had a lot to do but now its for a cruiser.

My buddy found it on craigslist first part of last week. He found it lookin in sac and was lookin at jeeps and this popped up in ukiah.

Yeah i cant wait to start tearing into it and get to building. I've always liked cruisers but they are always so expensive, i just happened to be in the right spot at the right time.

Hengl that sucks. well hope you can get it back running again. if not what a fine looking lawn orniment. lol

Yes Jimmy Cruisers do rule. I will say i never pictured myself having one because yes most are $$$$$$$$.

Just got done a bit ago stripping the frame of all the old wires, fuel lines, break lines, radiator and some other random non-usable ruble. Just gotta pull the old motor tranny and transfer case next and start cleaning the body and and strengthening the frame a bit.

Did a little more de-construction of the cruiser got the motor trans and t-case out thanks to help of my good buddy Danni {Grin}
Rear axle is out and getting ready to be someone else's axle tomorrow, fingers crossed he comes through. stripped the body down all the way now just trying to figure out where to cut the body and the frame.

Image
front axle is all loose just gotta get some more jack stands so i can set the frame up an yank the axle out.

Image
changing up the back of the frame still workin on where im gonna cut it and rebuild
