      kgrove replied to the thread KZJ78 Radiator replacement?.
      I think I found it - link below. Looks like it would be $420ish at current exchange rates plus shipping. Maybe it can be found cheaper elsewhere. PLEASE - do some research. I did not buy or install this radiator myself and have owned the car for...

      I imported another KZJ78 recently - just picked it up from the dock a few days ago. It has what appears to be a new or newish radiator (at least relative to the 29 years on the rest of the car) closely matching the OEM in appearance. I'll attach...

      kgrove replied to the thread 78 series death wobble.
      I've had a couple tire sets that just could not be balanced. I could picture the shudder that creates starting a downward spiral if it hit the right harmonic frequency and there were other small problems somewhere in the suspension that prevented...

      I just welcomed a new Prado to the family... drove it home from Port of Los Angeles yesterday. Really clean condition - 149K km, fresh timing belt, new tires, and maintenance appears to have been well done (super clean coolant, cooling system...

      I'm sure there are better performers, but I installed these headlights and it was a massive upgrade over the OEM halogens. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B09CQDCH7D/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&th=1 Ironman and Dobinsons both...

      +1 on Cruiser Outfitters / Cruiserteq. They have or at least can get many of the parts for a Prado. They're one of my go-to suppliers. Partsouq is my primary other option. Pricing often ends up very similar with Partsouq being cheaper on the...

      Three four options for the tire if you don't go for a swing out bumper: 1) order the tire mount and hang the tire on the rear door. This does add stress to the rear hinges and increases the likelihood of a squeaky rear door, especially if you go...

      I couldn't find where I ordered it, but this generic stuff looks similar to what I used once and it's much cheaper than the OEM stuff...

      I used a 10W version of that resistor. I would think the extra wattage would just be about the ability to dissipate more heat and shouldn't change the function. If anything, maybe those would better tolerate the heat of the engine bay. I think...

      That was it! Thanks for finding the link. I should note I only used that video to figure out the fix for the blinking indicator light, not the actual conversion to manual hubs. I used Aisin manual hubs and the adapter kit sold at RADD Cruisers...

      Does the 77 have the same dual 'hub lock' and 'H4' buttons as the KZJ78? If so and you really want a solid not flashing hub lock indicator light with manual hubs, there's a mod I found somewhere before - I'd link to it if I could remember...

      kgrove replied to the thread Wanted KZJ78 or KZJ71 parts.
      Thanks... I already sourced an instrument cluster so I could grab the tachometer.

      What part of CO? My suspicion is shipping would be obnoxious, but I might be driving to CO sometime this spring... likely to the Gunnison / Crested Butte area coming from the south or west. It's unlikely I'd make it as far as Denver, though I...
