New to the forum but not to Toyota's.

I live in NM with my wife, and 2 perros. We have a 1977 FJ40 Land Cruiser, and a 1997 FZJ80 Land Cruiser and most of a 1971 FJ40 Land Cruiser.

'77 FJ40:
Bought in Ouray, Co in March 07. Truck came bone stock. No suspensions mods, no steering mods and minimal maintanence. Has a Warn 8000i which works great :D The truck is amazing off-road. The gearing is ridiculous, in 4 hi and especially 4 lo. I mostly just point it and let it idle over things. It has been my DD since we bought it.

'97 FZJ80:
Bought in Santa Fe NM. This truck replaced a '90 Runner with 240k on the clock. What an upgrade. Got lucky and the truck came with a 2.5" OME lift, 33 Yokohomo's (need to upgrade), an ARB front bumper and a Kaymar rear tire carrier. This truck has a huge 4.5L twin cam inline six, and came with factory electronic lockers.

'71 FJ40 (kinda):
I got this truck last month for free. I say "kinda" as it is only the frame and misc body parts. I think it will be going away soon :(
