The Gear Patrol Special Edition FJ40
As seen in Issue Three of the Gear Patrol Magazine
Reserve this one of a kind piece of history.
Over the past several months, Gear Patrol’s Editor-in-Chief Eric Yang has worked with the fine folks at The FJ Company to coordinate style, design and performance details for this unique FJ40 that capture an essence of Gear Patrol. No detail was ignored. This overlander is a subtle blend of modern, adventurous luxury and classic appeal.
You can expect your restored Special Edition Gear Patrol 1980 FJ40 Land Cruiser to be delivered in September 2017. The vehicle's nine-month restoration process will end with a delivery of a unique classic that re-imagines a storied history without forgetting its origins.
An Icon, Reinvented
The FJ Company's build begins with a full, frame-off restoration - which you can read more about here. Finished off with a custom soft top, refinished wheels in Gunmetal Grey and all-terrain tires. And of course, once you're ready to go off the beaten path you'll be prepared with trail-ready accessories including a high-lift jack, rear-mounted jerry-can, classic Warn 8274 winch, and PIAA LED fog lights.
Look under the hood of the FJ40 and you’ll find a fully restored Toyota 2F engine - one of the most reliable and durable classic engines out there. During the restoration process, this engine receives The FJ Company treatment: a new carburetor, wiring, starter motor -- the works. And, if you desire more highway performance a 5-speed transmission upgrade is available.
The FJ Company takes pride in building modern versions of the classic Land Cruiser. For this FJ40 we're adding plenty of the creature comforts you want from a modern restoration including a premium audio system, leather seating, and, of course, air-conditioning, just to name a few.
