    Steel Wheel Question

    ...there’s something rad about steel wheels. With or without flares doesn’t matter. I got alloys but pine for steel.

    ZackR ...Great rig and I am with your daughter; the BLUE license plate is where its at. ChaseTruck I have already dug-out the rig three times since we got it more than two years ago. OBA is a manifold problem upon which I made a decision well before deciding not to focus on buying a speck of...

    Moving to PNW-Beaverton,Or. Looking for new independent Yota mechanic and parts source.

    The region is packed with some notable privately owned shops. A few of which are in the forums regularly. Willamette Blvd Service Center (North Portland) does not advertise anywhere from what I can tell but you better schedule ahead if your cruiser needs something changed or checked. Every...

    Shore dreamer Thank you for the lead. Oddly enough, Dan Rich’s build on Overland Bound youtube channel is my point of departure. As far as youtube, what these guys are doing in Australia and So. Africa is incredible but LCPhil is a super solid influence for me here. I am gonna watch the...

    93 FZJ knuckle/Truck advice (in Phoenix, Arizona)

    PhoenixFZJ80 OK, losing the second knuckle seal only a year or some number of miles later has occurred to many many mudders and just regular people out on the street. I know tech leaders at the dealers I have worked, they threw new knuckle seals on these 80’s when the unit was still under...

    Seat Coolers

    Man, I am originally from bumper-to-bumper traffic in California. Which really sucked for many reasons but no less a reason than the sun sitting across one’s lap for 6-7 months out of the year during evening’s rush hour traffic. Tinting the front windows got to be a real expensive proposition in...

    Consensus on bearing replacement 300k miles

    ...I tend to favor safety systems so naturally my thought drifts to wondering if you’re NorCalFJ100 buying reman OEM calipers out of the box, overhauling the current ones or getting an entirely different caliper at some point soon? I am curious as to your thoughts on baselining the hydraulics...

    Onur Heidegger did do some work on Nietzsche which I have not read one word; the most I know of Heidegger is by way of his student Arendt...I sobered up nearly two decades ago in a 12 step program... but upstate NY is gorgeous, the wife must see it, definitely needs to reach Montauk. All I want...

    80t0ylc Logistics are just preliminary right now. Ultimately most of the anticipated 20K+ mileage will be spent on highways (thus, 285/75/16) that’s what I am certain of. We will visit most major cities in the New England states, perhaps spending the entire fall season in the region and also...

    REALLY I am just looking to take a peek inside (images) the rear cabs of 80’s premised on extended traveling with more than one person. Read at your peril otherwise. I just want to assure any who might read this; I have spent hundreds of hours in the threads: reading: scanning images: and...

    Builds LX450: Baja surf trip build

    ...that’s right there is. Sometimes; I’ll admit, I focus so much on the readings that I forget or utterly overlook the images. DanMedeiros Beautiful family. Here’s my clan, they are all older now. The little guy is now nearly 8. If you’re ever off the north 5 FWY going through Portland or...
