Moving Day


Well today is the day to move Trip to our friends Shawn’s house where the engine swap will take place.  We were able to winch Trip onto the trailer with my husbands FJ40.  I sat in the truck to steer , my husband was in his FJ40 controlling the winch and Shawn was navigating the Land Cruiser onto the trailer.  All went smoothly and without incident.  We then drive to Shawn’s house which is about 20 minutes from our house.  The kids and I went in the car, my husband drove the silver FJ60 and Shawn drove the truck and trailer.  Once there my husband left and I got to work.  I was able to remove the drive shafts.  I then proceeded to remove the transmission and transfer case with Shawn’s help.  It was a productive day and feels good to be moving forward with the project!
