Well I wanted a 4x4 of some kind to muck around in and drive to and from work. After looking at 11hundredmillion kinds of shit I had more or less given up on anything with under 500,000 klms being under the national debt of Greece. In a state of semi drunken tiredness I stumbled upon a cheap TJ. So rang the the guy up and picked up Jim to go and have a look at it. Old mate on the phone tells me its a good thing, we turn up and its a steaming pile of shite. Any way the idea kind of stuck as I had kind of wanted another FJ40. This gave me my SWB 4x4 and had a bit more comfort than an FJ.
So the search was on. After dinging up a Aussie Jeep forum I came a cross a my99 2 owner TJ with 130klm on the clock and full books. A couple of emails and some arm twisting on my part a deal was stuck so last night a mate and I drove down to Sydney to pick it up.
