      I did a search but not getting a clear answer. I have a 1996 KZJ78 Prado with the 1KZ-TE engine, all stock as far as I can tell. Shouldn't there be a glow plug light on my dash that indicates the glow plugs are working when I turn the key to...

      @kgrove Yea, something that still utilizes any available space in the door cavity would be a lot more compelling. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

      @kgrove Yea, I'm navigating that right now. The front dash fits any standard 4" speaker. I replaced with some Pioneers that do sound alot better but its a lightweight sound. The rear factory speakers are kind of proprietary but I was able to...

      ARB Solis off road lights test fit. The light mounts on this bumper are a little small for a good fit. I'll look for some steel plate to increase the surface area so the light bases have a more secure mounting position.

      Dobinsons front winch bumper installation. Had to be one of the easiest installs I've ever done. Bumper fit up really well, only 4 bolts. I am thinking of adding some additional hardware, id feel more comfortable using a winch on it.

      Interesting on the magnetic paper, I hadn't thought of that. I was thinking like a vehicle wrap type vinyl that sticks would probably come off ok too. I guess we will see.

      @FJ73Texas, Wow. Well done, I was thinking there has to be a way to do this. Any tips on what kind of printer or material to use for best results? I am guessing a professional printer can have this done on the right material with adhesive...

      Yes, I should. FJ40 that green thing was about 5 cruisers back so I just gave up on it. I'll just keep changing my Avatar. ha ha

      @Rigster, I just installed the same replacement speakers last night in my 78. Same speakers, deteriorated lol. I like your hack for the factory mount, I just found some steel strapping and custom bent some brackets and that worked too. I found...

      Ok, I actually had a spare bit of time to myself, and despite being a bit chilly outside, I decided to get a couple things done on the ol' cruiser. One was to give my 6'3" frame a little more room and did the same track extension that @FJBen did...

      JDM factory head unit is useless in USA. Won't tune over FM 88, won't play CD's likely because of format and that leaves my music options to cassette tapes ha ha. If you haven't shopped electronics lately, there are severe disruptions in...

      This is awesome. So if you convert to manual hubs and replace this switch, the H4 button simply engages the transfer case for 4WD?

      Having been converted to manual locking hubs, my hub lock dash button served no purpose, so I got the manual hub style switch. Luckily, the plug for this one is already hanging out behind the dash unused, so this was an easy swap.
