If its a good price Fj 40's are becoming a deal no matter what shape they are. Theres so many companies and upgrades for these old landcruisers and they can be made into anything form mild daily drivers to wild 4by4s with 44 boggers. Get it.

Too bad about the front brakes it was definetly stock in
1976 to have front disc brakes somebody must have swiped
them:(.

Also a good place to look for cruisers is Extreme Bends(Steve)
(604)944-0382 he usually can find all kinds of them:D

Well for 2700 I say its a deal, and I really dont think the drum brakes are a big deal. I am still runing the stock brake pads if that says anything about the old drum brakes. What is the situation on all the rust with this thing and what motor does it have?
