Go Anywhere!

An Arizona born and bred FJ40 that has spent her life in the high desert climate of Arizona and was professionally built by Seth Jacobsen at Adventure Driven. Lightly used over the past ten years. This 1977 FJ40 Soft Top was built for adventure and exploring! 

Fuel injection, ARB lockers front and rear, front and rear disc brakes, Australian 4:88 gears and granny low, 65:1 crawl ratio, Warn winch, aux fuel tank, snorkel, Saginaw power steering, Man-A-Fre 4” suspension and Man-A-Fre bumpers front and rear. This is a high quality build and a very unique and capable FJ40! 

 

Exterior: 
 

The sky blue exterior has a precious few imperfections that I have shown in the photographs. You have to look carefully to find these minor flaws. The truck sports a soft top and OEM barn doors in the rear. The entire truck was repainted during the build and remains in beautiful rust free condition having been driven less than 10,000 miles since that time. The frame is excellent and the underside looks very good. The windshield is free of defects. There is a Warn 8274 winch with braided nylon recovery line. The exterior has a myriad of auxiliary lighting and all lights work as they should.  Fording small streams is childs play with the working snorkel and high clearance provided by the 4" Man-A-Fre lift and adjustable shock Rancho 9000 absorbers. The front and rear of the truck have been upgraded with excellent and no longer available Man-A-Fre bumpers including cooler cage in the rear, shovel and high lift jack.

 

Interior:

 

Occupants are protected by a full roll cage for optimum safety and high quality adjustable seats with restraints and embroidered with the Land Cruiser logo. You will find interior controls for all lighting, winch, ARB lockers, control for switching fuel tanks and much more. Auxiliary gauges give the driver accurate readings of RPM's, oil pressure, water temp and voltage. Other features include ample storage with a Tuffy locking console between the front seats with Cobra CB, Locking Dashbox and Tuffy slide out tool box in the cargo area. 


 

Audio is provided by a Kenwood AM/FM/CD with speakers installed in both doors and rear cargo area. There is a small LCD screen that will provide you with outside temp, heading and other details. The jump seats in the rear have been removed to make room for the on-board air compressor and tool box. Everything is in excellent working condition.

 

Mechanical: 

 

During the restoration, the original 2F engine and 4-speed transmission were rebuilt. Fuel Injection was added for bullet proof fuel delivery at higher elevations. The transmission gearing was modified with 4:88 gears and ARB lockers front and rear. The truck has a crawl ration of 65:1. You shouldn't get stranded with the 20 gallon auxiliary fuel tank, high lift jack and 8000 lb. Warn winch.

 

Driving Impressions: She can cruise at 65 MPH plus without issue. She shifts smoothly, the clutch and brakes are excellent and the truck steers easily with Saginaw power steering and next to new BFG 35x12.50 BFG MT tires. 4WD works as it should. Front and rear disc brakes will all bring you to a quick and uneventful stop. 

 

Summary: 

 

This Cruiser was built by outdoor enthusiasts at Adventure Driven with careful attention to detail, quality and reliability. If you're looking for a unique and capable FJ40 that will take you safely on that next great adventure, here's the truck for you!  It's a beautifully executed FJ40 build by passionate outdoor enthusiasts that is reliable, capable and a pleasure to drive both on the road and off!
