    AHC Removal - Fuses vs ECU

    I pulled the big fuse, I think, from the engine compartment when I did my AHC delete. No idiot lights but the "LOW" light does still blink. I kinda wouldn't mind if that light went away but maybe the white truck silhouette would stay...? Would anyone happen to know if that's possible without...

    Interior Design is Lacking...Ideas?

    Was just going to suggest this. I think the dash cover is a killer idea for easy in-reach storage.

    Interior Design is Lacking...Ideas?

    I have a bunch of stuff set up in my LX for EDC/every day mobile office work. Phone is on a magnetic mount because it is my GPS. I didn't see the need for another GPS unit when off-line maps are available anywhere I'd need to go. My bluetooth earpiece rests in the transfer case shifter boot...

    Lx470 interior wood trim overhaul

    The LC has fake wood. All Lexii have real wood trim. At least, from their origination up through the mid 2000s.

    Issue after suspension install

    The whole driver's side is lower? Not just one of the corners? Like above, check rear coils. DS is generally a smidge taller for the weight of the driver and fuel tank. I don't remember if OME coils are tagged with their designation. I'd also maybe re-index the Tbars. Those would be the 2 easy...

    Lx470 interior wood trim overhaul

    Wow, that's awesome. I don't think I've seen another OEM wood restoration here. What will you do for the painted 'flow/no flow' pictures by the vent adjuster?

    Any advice on whether or not to buy this 2002 100 Series?

    Hell yeah! Now you're talkin'! I like the adventurous idea! Yes, the southwest is good to vehicles. Nice and dry out there.

    Any advice on whether or not to buy this 2002 100 Series?

    Well, yes and yes.. There are companies who you can hire to ship a vehicle, or a seller may ship it themselves/also hire a company to ship it. It's pretty common to buy vehicles out of town and have them transported to you. Especially with sought-after vehicles.

    Looking to buy first Cruiser. Thoughts?

    It's really not that bad. The skids are easy to replace and it looks like everything else is good for wire-brushing and coating. I think if the truck is otherwise pretty nice, it wouldn't be a deal killer. If there were an identical truck next to it with no rust and maybe needing a thorough...

    Should I buy an ‘01 FJ100

    I've purchased 3 from Hampton Roads, all were local or as far north from VB as Williamsburg. There's definitely good, rust free inventory just a little south of you.

    Quick question: AHC...I can see the advantage of raising the vehicle, but what advantage is there in lowering it?

    Sorry, my intent wasn't to nitpick, just point something out based on info you admittedly didn't have yet. If you're talking about putting larger tires on an AHC equipped vehicle, then you'd still need to override the computer or physically modify the sensors to accommodate the tires (both are...

    Issues with a newly acquired 2000 LC

    Similar problem in my '99 LX. Ended up being the alternator, despite my tech telling me it was (and then flushing) the PS system. Try flicking your lights on and off at idle with the hood open and listen for the extra strain on the alternator.

    Quick question: AHC...I can see the advantage of raising the vehicle, but what advantage is there in lowering it?

    Except you're unable to drive in "LOW" above 20-25MPH unless you've overridden it in the computer. Also, have you driven in the low setting? It feels terrible like it's bouncing off the bump stops. Lift won't do anything on its own on a trail. The lift is just to accommodate bigger tires...

    What have you done to your 100 Series this week?

    Badass. I had some pressurized bumpers/nitro taps on a Jeep build and was thinking it would be really cool if my ARB could do the same. Interested in your steps for sure.
