Don't move that dial, the page just
takes awhile to load. I've got a lot of clients and friends with rides that
want to be seen.
Gordon Silaski's, and My FJ40 in Photo Gallery One
Fj60, David Dixon's Restored FJ43 and Richard Glascock's FJ40 in Photo
||Rick Alexander and his FJ80. I
wish he would let me get my hands on this. Rick also has a 40 so
look for that soon. Rick is also the president of The Razorback
Land Cruisers club here in Arkansas so contact him through their website
and check there for more info about joining this club.
|Dave Steelman is the proud owner of
the Arkansas Iron Pig. This is his project as of late and should
be very trick when he is done. He has scheduled a power steering
conversion with me recently so look for the pics on the projects page
||Casey is one of our club's officer
and owns a sweet FJ40. The lucky sob won a set of boggers on his
rookie trip to Tellico. He and his lovely wife are both cruiser owners (she has
an 80) and are the owners of Dizzy's Grill in Benton,
AR., the local meeting place for the Central Arkansas 4x4 club
|Bob Hoffman is the consummate jack of
all trades. This guy is accomplished at so much it is scary.
Since purchasing the rig behind him he has slowly worked the FJ40 into
one very capable rig. The picture here doesn't do it justice
because this truck walks over the toughest of obstacles
||I am glad I got a few shots of this
bad ass cruiser before Hardin was too far into his infection
stage. Hardin Bale's FJ40 sport some serious equipment. TPI
powerplant attached to a cut down Dana 60 rear via an SM420.
|This is Curt Henry and his pet ( he
can't have Ruf and Max). A 1978 FJ40 that I just recently finished
converting to an H55f five speed and split case with disc brake
emergency brake. Curt, beaming as he pulled into the drive the
other day, informed me he was getting 17 m.p.g.. Curt is the owner of
Signs Now in Little Rock and does the trickest stuff with graphics I
have ever seen. Look for some sticker packages on the products
||Forest Lovette has spent many a
weekend in my shop building this flexy monstrosity. He custom
built the suspension for the rear for extra flex and installed an Sm420
for very slow crawling. I can't wait to see the debut of the truck
on the rocks in the Smokey Mountains.
|Dale Bennet just got this FJ60 a few
weeks ago and is already planning a year's worth of
improvements for the truck and has already done front and rear bumpers,
new tires, and a roof rack is on the way.
||Jay Heulitt owns this very cool
cruiser. It's a 1978 FJ40 painted a charcoal metallic.
Inside there is a custom rollcage for front and rear occupants.
The rear section has a trick fold up seat that came out of some other
vehicle but works perfectly in '40's. I installed an additional
set of shoulder harnesses for the rear seat for added safety. Jay
drives it everyday and is always contemplating the next addition.
Dave Williamson's FJ40 is
bad. A fuel injected V8 with a Clark 280so five speed mated to a
Toyota 3 speed transfer provides driveline power. The inside is
custom to Dave's spec and features a sweet gauge package to monitor
performance and a switch panel that controls the winch, throttle, electric
fan, and the like. Of course you can see the boggers with
beadlocks and the hub of the Birfield eliminator kit. The
suspension feature a 4" lift with anti-inversion lift
shackles. If you see the truck on the trails check out what Dave
did for the line locks. Very trick.
picking up his finished ride. The truck turned out great.
Some of things we did were AGR power steering, correction kit,
lined inside and out, new wheels and tires, full color change,
stainless steel everywhere, Vintage Air kit and five point restraint
system. Check out his project pics. You will
be amazed at what this truck has gone through.
Peter Fotio's owns this very
sweet FJ62. The truck is one of the cleanest I've seen. It
sports the original paint job and runs like a top. Peter is
entertaining offers for the truck in the $10,000 range if you happen to
be looking for cherry '62.
||Dave Lay owns
"Tonka". It is a '72 model powered by the six attached
to an H41 four speed/3 speed xfer combo. The axles are stuffed
with Detroit Lockers front and rear with 4.88 gearing. A front disc
brake axle from a later model cruiser provides stopping power. Other
amenities include the mini truck p/s conversion, a birfield
eliminator kit, a factory PTO winch and a rear mounted XD9000.
|I know its
grandiose but the truck is huge so it needed an
attention getting color besides it had the always classic John Deer
is a machinist and built this truck himself. It has one of the
best spring overs Ive seen. Its sports a V8 and NV4500. It has p/s and four wheel disc brakes.
It also sports on board air and a full roll cage. Check out the classifieds for more
||Can you see the Mona Lisa smile on
Erin's face? And I quote," that was the a/c kickin
in". I can't give you guys all the scoop because that may
cause Erin's head to swell and possibly explode-almost as large as
|Jerry is the proud owner of this
1969 model FJ40. He is always doing little things to constantly
improve the truck. He has gone over the body, built a roll
cage and a back bumper, put in new seats, and currently is refurbishing
the hard top. Jerry also has a 1985 FJ60
||Anthony Zardo owns this beast.
He has done all the work himself and really deserves accolades. He
installed a V8 with a Clark 280 so five speed. The truck also has
power steering and a correction kit. Az fab'd the bumper and just
about every other bracket and thingamabob he needed to finish the
|John Dean is a local
dentist with a love for his FJ60. He just had me install a new Old
Man Emu Suspension kit, tune the motor, and powder coat his factory
bumpers for a more aggressive look. We also installed some new
aluminum rims and some BFG 31x10.5 all terrain KO's. I thinked he
is hooked. Now all we have to is bring his wife around.
Jeremy Landons FJ80, a very sweet ride for the trails. Factory
lockers front and rear, nice functional snorkel, lifted a little and
post pic added an ARB bull bar that hides the indicated tree
||This is Bob
Harris's FJ60. One of the cleanest I've seen. Bob came to me
to fix an oil leak he felt was beyond his scope. Turns out we
completely rebuilt the 3F, put on a ceramic header, and installed a
BDS suspension system. One of the cleanest you will see
Felton Rhodes and Noah Rhodes standing next to the most cherry Fj60
in the United States. 45k original miles. Check
out the pics here
Paul Caldwell's FJ80. Paul call me when u see this bc I'm an
idiot. The borders are all off and we need to redo the
shot. Paul wants to upgrade many things on this truck and I
can't wait to get my hands on it. hehe
