I’ve owned a ‘78 FJ40 since 1993 so when the FJC ads started hitting the 4WD mags, I was in love...but not able to afford one. Last year I bought my wife an FJ60 and we’ve been really enjoying the extra space, but bummed we can’t take it on out-of-state trips as it’s “a project.” Which brought the FJC back on our radar. We ended up purchasing a 2008 TT manual with a 3” lift, new tires, lots of aftermarket lights and 100k miles for about 60% of what it cost new.
