    hey guys. been away from the forum for a long time. the luxus is somewhere up in the pacific northwest to the best of my knowledge. the thread is down due changes in photobucket. anyways i scored this 71 fj40 for super cheap with a clean title. hoping to make it a runner and sell it to fund my daughters 66 mustang project. here's some pics of where it's at at the moment.

    when i brought it home

    i'm keeping the wheel opening shape stock, but they're opened up for the larger size tires. the 33's were really close to rubbing the stock quarter openings.

    truck came with full doors and some hacked half doors. i'm reshaping the cuts and finishing the half doors.

    picked up these 33's for a decent price. i like the slotted mags but they're a pretty dated look

    that pretty much brings the build current. i want to get the motor pulled and freshened up and get the wiring done. also planning to install a pickup gas tank at the rear of the frame and installing a proper gas door.
