My 1976 Cement Gray 4.7 iForce V8 FJ40

Hey T4R,

I'm mostly on MUD, but thought I'd share my vehicle here as well. If you're interested, my built thread is-

https://forum.ih8mud.com/threads/my-...d-auto.835190/

I believe this is the only 2UZ FJ40 in the world using the 5 speed auto behind it. The wiring was a nightmare and took hours of research, but it was all worth it. It runs great, and has been a blast to drive! She has about 3,200 miles so far. I completed the build myself over the course of 5 years. I did everything but the bodywork. Here are a few pics in chronological order. This is maybe 5% of the pictures in my thread, but it's a good starting point!

Day I bought it in Portland, OR



Tearing it down



Sand blasted frame-



Tub and panels all got sand blasted-



Cement Gray paint curing-



6 coats total (3 underside, 3 inside) Sound insulation, heat insulation, and bed liner-



Custom center console-



Custom dash pieces-



Assembly-



Engine in-



Assembled in our new garage-



Engine bay-



New wheels/tire setup-



And finally, some off road shots!

Very nice work!...The body color and black bumpers and accents look very good together.

Super cool. Did you use the entire engine/drivetrain/electrics from a donor vehicle?
