    Saw ths 1971 FJ40 at the local dealer here and could not believe what they were asking for and the Sales Rep. kept calling it a Jeep since it was at a Dodge dealer.

    Not worth near what they are asking...the grill is even on upside down and there were some small rusts spots about the size of a quarter and the suspension is about as generic as you can get.

    Hmmm... Dont like it. If it was a restored, well finished truck, maybe. But the TV and the BBQ are GAY! Not to mention the 20's or whatever they put on it.

    To each their own, but I can't stand it when someone does that to a an icon vehicle and then turns it into something as useless as this one.

    Gut it and start from scratch...

    Little off topic but why do people grill/bbq so close to their vehicles? Things splash all over and your car smells like food later.

    If you have ever been to Fayetteville, NC then you would get why someone might think they could sell it here...

    I have seen very similar setups on Taco's, FJ Cruisers, and Jeeps. They throw on 20's and street tires while at the same time jack them up 6" and drive around with bass to blow out their ear drums...

    Can't wait to get back to Colorado...18 more months.
