    fj62 1988 Landcruiser Transer Case Leak

    Not huge, but you will have to tear down the tcase to get to the seal - when I did it I went ahead and rebuilt the tcase as well.

    1 Day Away - Throwing Down 4 the Suspension

    12 years later, no complaints. No relocating hangers, no stinkbug, I did install anti-inversion shackles initially (did not install the CCOT shackles) because I had them on hand already. Pic taken today - no significant decrease in lift height over the years, no stinkbug, no complaints (from me).

    Front bumper removal bolt help

    Not sure if year of bumper matters, for newer model ARB on FJ62 I did have to remove 2 bolts (1 lower and 1 upper) from the OEM bumper mounts to make room for the upper/lower ARB bolts. Mine (both sides) were both bolts, not rivets.

    Knuckle Rebuild - Real Time Tips

    I drove my new OEM studs in using stacked washer method and an impact... Also, those OEM studs list for ~$13 each, at least that's what a local dealer quoted me then took 50% off.

    What did you do with your 60 this weekend?

    Things got shiny this weekend. I'm tempted to tear it all back down and replace the dust shield with the eliminator plate. That thing is a pain in the ass - I can only imagine doing birf work on a trail and having to jack around with cracking open brake lines, etc. But for now... bling

    What did you do with your 60 this weekend?

    Yes OEM... they do not have the hole drilled for the hub/rotor bolt though - oh well.

    Cleaning things while waiting for parts (new calipers and rotors en route). Before, lots of gunk. After some degreaser, scraper and paint.

    What says mud, the tabs are discolored from what appears to be heat/wear - look ok?
