      Here’s what I came up with…. I added some washers to my bead roller to make the offset match the original 45 rear. Work surprisingly well. Then I bent the lower section to mimic the bottom. I also did some curved sections to do the ends

      Started working on a plan for a skid plate. Saw some nice examples (@Gun Runner 5 your old 77), so I started measuring my plastic one. Glad I kept it! However, my Autodesk skills have suffered over the years of not using it lol. I’m starting to...

      No worries, just a small “donation” to the @FJBen “We Exclusively Enjoy Diesels” and “Bring Every Electrical Demon” fund allows posts like these and many other great posts to be observed and enjoyed by viewers and contributors alike. We...

      Thanks FJBen for letting this discussion continue here. Good info. Just bought a Noco Gen5x2 and wasn't confident on the set-up.

      Good timely info. Thanks. Are your trailer lights LED or using a 24v-12v step down? Did the relay box idea found on Mud on a rig that already had splices into its OEM harness. I'd like to tow the same trailer with another rig and not tap in...

      Milwaukee impact, brake cleaner, PB blaster, and a BFH. Sounds about right!

      great friend and LC mechanic AJ did this dirty work for me a few weeks ago...knuckles and new front breaks...love that we can still find OEM parts for these things..it was like Hersey's chocolate syrup up in there...

      Finally got the nerve to unpack the soft top…. I really didn’t want to be disappointed. Reached out to @FJBen and confirmed missing the piece from the windshield to the B pillar. I’ll let the pictures tell the rest of the story…

      Great looking vehicle so far! Question, if you get a chance can you show what you have going on for the roof rack? Those look like Front Runner style feet and bars. I am curious how you have them connected at the T junction.

      Like no oil has even gone through the strainer. Looking under the piston skirts: At this point, I’m in a position to remove the bearing cap assembly and make sure everything measures out correctly. If this was some sort of training...

      The 1PZ was an engine manufactured by Toyota within the LASRE line of engines Toyota developed in the 1980’s/1990’s. LASRE stood for: Lightweight Alloy Super Responsive Engine series developed in the mid-late 1980’s and fine tuned in the early...

      The install went well. I used custom brackets which themselves work great. It is an expensive upgrade for sure. It it worth it? Well I can't really tell you yet until I get some butt-in-seat usage but again it is much better than old...

      OK at long last I got the rear doors nailed down and added a sexy flexy net thing. Mine had ash trays but I can't see much use for kids and ash trays? So this will let them have a place for their snacks storage. I also took some time and did a...

      Getting closer to resuming projects here. Slab was poured and is now in the curing phase before I can coat it. I started moving tools and stuff over to the shop, but I need to finish the work bench done for the main piece of furniture! My goal...

      @sleepydad69 is so awesome. A huge benefit to everyone here. Those seats look AMAZING!!! I'm most jealous that they are heated. Even in Texas, that's gotta be nice.

      I did a scheel-man test fit and install using brackets supplied by @sleepydad69 which allowed me to use the suspension base+scheel-man seat. It was a bit of a learning curve but the install went well. I took it out for a test drive and...

      Just got the Terrain Tamer radiator. The radiator mounts will me modified to mount on the narrow nose 70. Also @orangefj45 and I were trying to figure out the 6 lugs conversion. ALL worked out on the rear axle except the flange of the rear...

      Ok This has been a really fun project so far. The geometry on the front door cards is pretty involved. I’m also guessing the reason Toyota and a lot other manufactures use glorified cardboard as a base for the cards is they can bend and give...

      I think it looks correct? mine was still all working but was a little sloppy. Found one at a decent price, just took like 30+ days for shipping.

      Spent two weeks touring through the Mojave. The first week was just us solo then we were joined by some friends: another 75 series, a GX470, and a 4R. So many good spots. Lots of solitude, stunning vistas, dust in every crack (just did laundry in...
