    1976 FJ40 barn find.

    A powerwasher and some baselining and you'll probably be driving it in a week or two. Looks complete, but crusty. Wouldn't scare me away if the price was right. Have fun! ;)

    Search for a 60......what do I look for, what to avoid?

    If you've never had an FJ60 before, be prepared for poor gas mileage and the slow lane. They don't like going above 3000RPM or 65MPH. 10-15mpg. This is coming from a long time Landcruiser owner of both 40's and 60's. I Love Them, but most folks used to modern vehicles will be terribly...

    Camped at Lake McConaughey last week on my way to New Mexico. Nice and quiet in the fall, had the beaches to myself.

    Mounting a RTT to a standard model truck cap

    I had my ARB RTT mounted on our Tundra with an ARE Z series topper and yakima rack for a few trips. It did flex a tiny bit when in use, but no damage. The only issue was that the yakima towers did loosen enough that on one occasion the whole assembly (towers, bars, tent) slid all the way...

    Temporarily removing second row seats?

    Buy an FJ60. When you fold the rear seat, it makes a perfectly flat, carpeted platform that is long enough for a 6' person to sleep on. ;)

    I love this picture Mundo4x4Casa. Especially since Salt Creek is only accessible by foot these days. Cool to see a Cruiser in it's element "back in the day". I miss my FJ40's!

    CA -> UT -> CO (Warning: TONS of pictures!)

    Great report and photos, thanks for sharing! I miss CO and UT! Question: How did the fiberglass topper hold up to the RTT use? Any flexing/cracking?

    ladder extension for rtt? need one?

    I am running ~33" tires and an OME lift on a 60 and I do not need an extension for my ARB tent. I've run it on my stock Tundra with a topper and it did not reach. However, I just used a couple of rocks and it was fine. DIdn't see the necessity in buying the extension when there is usually...

    ExPo 60 Series Registry

    Thanks! They are 285/75R16 Nitto Terra Grapplers on 16x8 Aluminum wheels, not sure of manufacturer. I would prefer stock wheels and narrower tires with a little more bite to the tread, but these Nitto's sure do go down the road nicely.

    Yaesu ft-2900

    I have both the 2800 and 2900. I had an FT8800 in my FJ40 and I felt it was just a little too delicate for that environment. A lot of dust and abuse and I wasn't really needing anything more than a standard 2M, so I swapped it out for the 2900 which is much more rugged and simple. It has...
