My future 1st build will be...

Since I currently live in Cali. I need to follow the current smog laws.
The only four door Land cruiser that is pre smog of 1976 is a Fj55.
This will be the RockDaddyCrawler.
The engine will be simple 5.3, 4.7 or even a 383 with TBI
Red Line Land Cruiser’s 1976 FJ55, code named “War Pig” won’t win any beauty contests, but it sure is one awesome, power-packed and tricked-out beast of a FJ55!As of now my 1st build will be a Fj55 as follows:

More Day Dreaming More, Options To Choose From

In pervious post early in the blog I listed many options of how I might achieve my dream build since then a lot has happened & I have Many more option to add to the list. I am still torn to what this dream rig would end up looking like, but I have narrowed it down to 3 types of variations.

#1 Four door 40 with different tops.
#2 Stretched J40 or Bobbed Troopy look with different tops.

#3 or just going to a Fj55

Buck Rock Trail & Lookout Tower Day Trip

My oldest daughter & I made a run for the fire tower at Buck Rock in the Sequoia National Forest. We met up with several wheelers from the Central Valley Crawlers Club that was doing trail work for the Forest Service, one of them is a good friend named @ToyotaDon. It was a fast paced 14 hour 270 mile day that blurred right past us. We had so much fun I all most forgot to get pics, but we did get a few & would like to share them with you. Enjoy!
