1991 fj80- project offroad station wagon
« on: Aug 27, 2020, 04:16:19 PM »
Nothing fancy here but I picked up this 1991 fj80 cheap to make into my full time camping/fishing with the kids mobile until I can get the 40 built.

plans so far are to tune up the motor and get everything I can reliable and running good then throw in the spartan I have for the 40 build, deflare and then finish the front bumper build with winch. probably end up building some sliders and rattle can painting the whole thing tan at some point but for now I just want to rally :clap: :gap:

Thanks guys. I had always wanted one and the newer ones with lockers bring a tidy sum it seems but I found a couple 91-92s that were relatively cheap without lockers. For what I am going to use it for one lunchbox in the rear and I think it will be more than capable. I took it out last weekend on a quick day trip for a shake down and she did great. With 15 psi in the tires she rides like a Cadillac compared to the old leaf sprung strait axle toys I have had and a lot more room for the family. I know it is slow and bad fuel mileage but there is so much to explore close to home why go too far.

no big update but did some drivers training the other morning:

also replaced the FPR and amp so I have her running good and have tunes.

next step is to get the AC working and then maybe some tires or lift to use the 37's I have on the fj40 right now.... :D :D
