I will need to put a CB in, and as I wrote before, fix a u-joint. But I couldn't be more pleased at how few things NEED to be done on this truck....
In our next episode of "When Scope-Creep Attacks!!!" we'll watch as Jeff completely dismantles his FJ60!
He's taken the body off for paint (and inevitably, welding). Meanwhile, as he cleans the frame for attaching the sliders, he decides that he wants it fully-boxed, with new in-board brake lines, as well as with provisions for a Shade Tree Engineering (tm) designed-in-Namibia dual fuel tank system. Since he's pulled the driveline to install the H55F and the new U-joint, he also decides he wants front and back lockers, rear disk brakes and an OME suspension upgrade. And a 1HD-T (which wants the crankshaft bearings replacin' in any event)...
Will his wife just shrug and buy her own [curseword] wagon? Stay tuned!
