The Run Down....

FOR SALE: This 1976 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40. This was a two year recently completed complete frame off, nut & bolt rebuild/restoration by BigSky Cruisers. This project included a conversion from the original Toyota 2F motor to a Cummins first generation turbo charged 3.9 4BT diesel that is turning out around 170 HP. There is less than 1000 miles on this rebuild. The power is unreal. The fuel milage is great. It’s hard not to smile when you are behind the wheel of this bad boy.
