    All that glliters is not Gold.

    If you do not have experience with 4X4s and specially older cars, stay away from the Land Rover.
    e Get a rig which is easy to fix and easy to finds parts.

    To begin the FJ that is offered by tareen is a good buy. Let me split the cost for you.

    250K for the fresh auctioned FJ
    50K for the transportation and registration.
    100K for a decent Body and paint Job. Remeber Decent not great.
    80K for the stock 2F to run.(you will need a new Carb and new Coil over and above the Overhauling)
    100K for MICS(soft top, upholstery, complete transmission service and stuff)
    Add 20% to the above for contingencies.
    Add as much as you want for Khoaaree and time at the workshop.

    I wud suggest you buy a stock FJ40 in reasonable running condition, run it for a few months do some offroading and hang out wid the IJC guys and learn. Then take up a full frame off restoration.

    okay got a clean body fj40.. body job is done.. its painted red.. im changing that to mat black..
    interior needs replacement..
    so my first question.. which jeeps interior can fit in fj 40 easily...

    second and the important question
    i want to change the 2f engine. as i dont have a seperate bank account for fuel expenses yet and this suv will be a daily runner..
    what options do i have..
    also which transmission will i need with the engine.. and do i swap the high/low torque differentials.. for better mileage and more top speed.. ive heard 5 speed hiace gears can work with it

    p.s for reference purpose got it in 250k. car is registered. multan number.
