    For Sale OC, CA- Does your Crankshaft Position Sensor leak? Easy fix here!

    I am not sure but you could use the two rings to seal it up in case you ever wanted to connect the sensor in the future.

    Front Brake Caliper Replacement - Napa Eclipse NLA? Options?

    I just received a full set of new calipers from Norwalk that I paid ~$149 each (3 weeks after ordered). My originals have 429K miles and are working just fine but am restoring everything and know they may not be available in the future. The price seems more than reasonable and know they will be...

    1996 Toyota Land Cruiser Restomod- 400K+ miles White/Gray

    @mehbohdi They are LEDs I purchased on Amazon, link below. I had some extras left over and they happened to be the right size for the outdoor ground lighting in backyard. They turn on automatically every night and haven’t had any go out after close to 4 years of daily use during night hours...

    1996 Toyota Land Cruiser Restomod- 400K+ miles White/Gray

    I had the drive shafts serviced and replaced a lot of the exterior trim and wipers arms that were showing their age. I had a new grill I was saving to replace the original beat up grill the PO had painted all black and thought this was an appropriate time. I experienced something very unusual...

    1996 Toyota Land Cruiser Restomod- 400K+ miles White/Gray

    On my way back from Vegas there was an accident at the top of the pass that completely stopped traffic. It was 100 + degrees and while waiting I heard what sounded like the transporter's (right next to me) hydraulics failing, it was a very loud noise that sounded like a high pressure hose...

    1996 Toyota Land Cruiser Restomod- 400K+ miles White/Gray

    I installed an OEM hand throttle and grab bar, it's great these are still available and at reasonable prices, I purchased both through Cruiser Parts for $50 each, that is the only positive thing I have to say about them. I never would have been able to install the grab bar without the guidance...

    1996 Toyota Land Cruiser Restomod- 400K+ miles White/Gray

    I installed an ARB bumper and White Knuckle sliders for straight panel insurance. I also dropped down to 34" (LT285/75R17E) all terrains since the muds were too big, I eventually would like to get back to 35" but need to regear before I do. The new size is better for daily driving with stock...

    1996 Toyota Land Cruiser Restomod- 400K+ miles White/Gray

    I decided to give 35x12.50R17 mud terrains a try. They gave me the look I was after and were great for off-roading but the reality was I needed to regear to drive it daily in California on the 73. They didn’t rub at all during regular on road driving.

    1996 Toyota Land Cruiser Restomod- 400K+ miles White/Gray

    My younger brother turned me on to some universal seat protectors that can be purchased on eBay or Amazon for around $60. I think half the members I have traded parts with over the years have told me they purchased them too because they fit so well and have an almost vintage JDM look. The brand...
