I guess I get the honor of having the rattiest Landcruiser pictured on this thread.

My 1969 FJ40.



It's not the prettiest thing, but it was made back when trucks were trucks. That's what I like about it the most.

I still miss my '74 FJ40.

Had to get rid of it because as a High Schooler at 12 miles per gallon, I couldn't keep her fed.

One of these days I'll get another one and drop a 350 in it and lift her up a bit.

I've had a few, done the Jeeper's Jamboree through the Rubicon a number of times. Even did every one of the Land Cruiser Jamboree through the Rubicon.

I would give my left nut for a FJ45, short bed, with the removeable roof. Like this

One of my work trucks when I was a geologist working out near Marble Bar in Western Australia about 30 years ago. They were all diesels and damn I wish I had one now!

You can find them in the US but will cost bunch of shiny pennies. Here's again my 40 on the road:

I think Legion has a couple of nice ones, posted in "Cool Trucks". I used to own a FJ55 as well, twice even.

Im an FZJ80 owner... a locked 1997 40th with 174K miles. I love this truck -- super capable in stock form, enough creature comforts -- perfect for my uses.

Im 27 and expect to own it till I die.. or we run out of fossil fuels

I have been looking to buy an fj40..... Hopefully will be contributing to this thread when I do. Had a Jeep CJ-7 as my first car and loved it. Always wanted a Toyota.
