This rust-free 1977 FJ40 sports an older custom, frame-off
restoration. During restoration the original 4.2-liter 6-cylinder
engine was completely rebuilt, and modern fuel injection added for
increased performance. The stock 4-speed transmission was replaced
with a Toyota H55 5-speed manual transmission. This transmission is
paired up to a split transfer case, which allows for driving in 4x2
low or high as well as 4x4 low or high. The front and rear
differentials were also both replaced with new ARB air locking
differentials with onboard compressor and dash-operated switches.
Dual air chamber bead lock wheels, including the spare, allow you
to decrease the air in the tires for increased traction, and an
onboard liquid CO2 tank allows you to quickly reinflate them.
Upgraded brakes and performance pads, ARB front and rear bumpers
with WARN M8274 winch. There is a 2-inch Iron Man lift kit for
increased ride height. The small factory fuel tank was upgraded to
a high-capacity 21-gallon tank. A custom fiberglass 8-speaker Focal
and Alpine sound system is built into the full-length family-style
roll cage. The vehicle seats six with front bucket seats and dual
rear bench seats, which have seat belts for four passengers and can
be easily accessed through the rear ambulance-style doors. The
rust-free body was sprayed in red LINE-X, the top and grille in
white LINE-X, and the bumpers and interior in black LINE-X.
