Those are cool.

I just picked up a good ol' NAS FZJ80 that is triple locked with not bad miles. Going to spend a few bucks getting it up to speed then off camping I go. The cash I saved will buy a lot of petrol. Now don't get me wrong...The immature "want" in me wanted some thing a little more exotic. BUT, The more mature "I am tired of working on my crap" in me said go with arguably the most capable off the shelf 4x4 ever sold new in the US. I am happy with my decision.

Good luck with yours...

Thanks.
I am having a tired of working on my crap crisis as well. That is why I am dipping my toe in the Land Cruiser thing. It just might be for me and cure a couple of decades of this Land Rover addiction. I think once you start counting your Rovers by the dozen instead of individually you should admit you have a problem and try to stop.

Very nice looking FJ. I am sure you will enjoy it.

Yeah I have owned a few (9) Rovers and the addiction runs deep. I have also dipped my toes into the LC world a few times, this is my second 80 Series, my 4th LC, and 7th Toyota product. They really are great trucks with owner satisfaction included. They do however, lack the personality that LR's possess IMHO. Which personality can sometimes mean "working on your crap" which is both good and bad.

I like the loss of yours, it doesn't look 25 years old, which is nice. It could very easily be a 2005 Toyota, with those looks.

Enjoy!

Following, looking for an FJ80 for my father in law. Also a 100 series for my sister. I got them all RRC's and now they're branching out a bit.
