    Best way of protecting my rig on an open flatbed???

    Is this going to be a show rig? Going to be auctioned off once completed? If it is a driver again I wouldn’t sweat it. I have bought and sold a good amount of cars over the years and they all arrived on an open trailer without issue. This includes sports cars etc. But if you are losing sleep...

    Best way of protecting my rig on an open flatbed???

    Personally I wouldn’t really worry about it, I towed my rig with my Tundra from Kelly’s to the Front Range of Colorado with zero drama. Kelly’s paint job will hold up to flat bed towing just fine. Brand new cars move around the country on exposed trailers all the time.

    Who’s had personal experience using a shop for a complete FJ60 restoration?

    +1 for working with Kelly Saad in Flagstaff, AZ. He worked his magic on my 60 and it came out great and now he is working on my 40. I think something to keep in mind is the rust you see is only a fraction of the actual rust buried in your rig. The cost of repairing your rig will be pretty...

    Post some pictures of what you are dealing with and would like to replace and I would guess the collective will be able to help point you in the right direction. I don’t know of only one source for you to shop and get everything you may need.

    Who has a Warn 8274 Winch on their FJ40?

    77’ 40 with a $300 8274 I found 4 years ago. Had to rebuild the winch but it works like it should.

    Where is the best place to buy a Half Tub from for my 77' 40?

    Where is the best place to buy a Half Tub from for my 77' 40?

    I got kind of a sketchy feeling after emailing with the guy at LandCruiser Heaven. Decided to just buy panels and patch it together.

    H55F vs NV4500

    I have a 60 with 5.3 and NV4500, I drive the vehicle all the time with 33’s on and off road, it is very confidence inspiring. I never worry about overloading anything because it was built to take the abuse. It is no problem to cruise at 75-80mph all day and have done it on long trips many times...
