Picked up my new FJ60.
1984 FJ60 SOA, 4:88 35s

First plan out the gates is changing fluids, and a friggin knuckle rebuild.

Next I need to check the angles on the Rear pinion, as I have some pretty heavy highway vibrations on the Rear DS.
Im excited about the next few steps with this Cruiser. I have a bit more experience than I did with my first LC(the OD green In the front)

Looking good, Robbie. When do you think it'll be ready to go?

And leave it to Chris to recognize any 60 that shows up on this forum. :lmao:

If you start replacing the vacuum lines, of which there are many, do them one at a time. FJ55/60/62s are very picky about what vacuum lines go where and misplacing/resetting a vacuum line in the wrong spot can cause many unwelcome gremlins to crop up.:D
