End of an Era
Had to post a goodbye to my trusty Land Cruiser FJ60. Bought this vehicle in 1996 and it has had many mods through the years, Many NPL and TRFS guests rode in the Land Cruiser as it was my daily driver and guide vehicle up until 2007. In 2007 I sent it away for a serious makeover. Paint and body, replaced the straight six gas engine with a 4 cylinder Cummins 4BTA diesel engine, sprung over suspension with cut and turn on the front axle, 35" BFG tires, ARB front winch bumper and Custom rear with swingout for the spare tire, rock sliders, ARB lockers front and rear etc. It has been sent out to the country where it can be used properly.
My son was pretty upset as it drove away because he came home from the hospital, after being born, in the Land Cruiser.
Goodbye. It was was a fun decade and a half.
