Yep, exactly. it has so many custom parts on it, I'm not comfy with selling it and being married to the new owner. It would take the right person to appreciate and care for it, making the selling process even more difficult!
I now understand why you’re going the route you are.

I’ve had people comment on what a great bush beater my ‘74 Fj40 would make.
After building a new floor, frame replacement, V8 engine conversion, transmission & T-case replacement/rebuild, FF rear end, 4 wheel disc brake conversion, On-board air, rear air bags, retrofit newer hardtop, etc., etc.
Just because a shiny paint hasn’t been a high priority, it doesn’t mean I could bear to see it run into the ground. I’d rather it see it rot than see it trashed.

Beautiful & productive weekend here, the cooler weather has me pumped for some camping! Took V4 to Rigs n coffee, it usually falls on a weekend that I have kids so this is my 1st time out in a while. Nice crowd.

New windows installed in the Transit, much better

Old pic of my 1st van popped up, good memories! This was Azusa Canyon, 04 or 05.
