A friend of mine is selling an 08 Salsa red/gray interior GX, 108k on the odometer. NYC vehicle, has rust underneath not good but not terrible (no holes in the frame), mostly just surface. I think he wants $10k, send me a pm and I'll send you a ton of pics. I think it's been converted to non air suspension as well.

Haven't watched yet but that's about $200k too much for ANY FJ40, you can have the same amount of fun with a $20-30k truck.

Also body colored roof caps :barf:
yep, that's my point. they act like it costs $250k to make an FJ nice :rofl:

it's just like the icon shit. that fucking guy is insufferable and you can get a car built as "well" as one of theirs from many other places for far cheaper.
I'd be curious to see the undersides up close, anything I've seen come out of south america is hacked together with duct tape and bubble gum. Not to mention their workers probably get paid $10 USD/day

This shit seems so scammy. I'm jaded as hell tho :o

Hoping you guys have a vague idea of what's up with my 4runner. 194k miles so.. A lot. Had my rear axle assembly replaced back in August. Now the back driver side sounds like ass. Just got home and looked underneath appears something is leaking, so that's good. Any idea what it could be? Going to have a place by my office look at it tomorrow but figured I'd ask you fine folks.

The breather on top of the axle is plugged with rust and road shit, caused the housing to over pressure and it blew the driver's axle seal out. Mechanic can fix it in a few hours for not very much. Common rust belt failure.

Edit: I see later posts and it's clearly the kdss and has been addressed disregard

Breather is a good call though. When I did my gears/lockers, I ended up with a rear pinion seal leak after like 100 miles on a new seal. Thought I must have fucked up the install somehow. Realized after some troubleshooting that my extended breather somehow got pinched. Was super annoying having to replace the seal again, but at least I didn't have to pull the 3rd to do it.
