Ultimate FJ farewell tour.

It's trying to win Top Truck before it goes to the crusher. I'm a big fan.

Re: Ultimate FJ farewell tour.

Was that paint free from a sponser or did you pay for it?

Thumbs up Re: Ultimate FJ farewell tour.

Cool, I never knew it wasn't a stock FJ. I always liked the way that one looked.

You see, the FJ Cruiser (aka the turtle) we built for Ultimate Adventure a few years back was actually a prototype truck and after a few years Toyota wanted it back to send to the crusher. (it all revolves around the legal dept not wanting this pre-production truck to end up being sold) Now we're not too upset about this as we knew it would happen some day and we'll definitely pull all the good parts and stuff them into something else down the road, but first how about one last hurrah! for the FJ?

Brent, you need to post a pic of your rig and put it next to this one. It's pretty similar.

Re: Ultimate FJ farewell tour.

Read the link in the first post. The Ultimate FJ was actually a pre-production FJ and so they, Toyota, doesn't want someone to profit off of that fact as having a non-production FJ would probably draw quite a tiddy sum from the right person.

If i was Toyota i wouldn't want anyone buying a used post-production FJ... The fricken front ends fall off.

GO D.O.

If they need a donor truck to pull stuff off of and I just happen to end up with a SAS and all the other goodies... well I'd be OK with that!
