      1515 front to back with gamviti and 1530 cross rails, seems amazingly strong, oem bars were very weak

      Quick update: I had an alignment done and tried greasing my driveshafts. Nothing worked...until I removed the Napa CVs and installed my old OEM CVs. The car drives great now lol. Moral of the story: don't cheap out. Save yourself the time and...

      I must suck at searching, I can't find something similar. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

      The previous owner put these taillights on, and they work great. However using the turn signal will cancel cruiser control. I've lived with this just fine, I'm not a fan of cruise control. However I've also had a problem where when using my turn...

      I notice the later shifts, especially when pulling into a tight gap in moving traffic and have to get on the gas. If you're worried about this sort of thing, get a bluetooth OBDII scanner and something like the Torque app for your phone (both...

      Each rail is held with 3 bolts per side, i wanted to space them out farther than the rack would allow with 4 bolts per side and they are plenty strong, gained around 6 inches by doing this. I had to do this with the RTT in place so it took alot...

      Cruiser Patch Products for 100 Series Land Cruiser and LX470 These are listed in no particular order. I will continue to update this thread as more products arrive to the site. Nomenclature: "kit" refers to any combination of two or more parts...

      Here is another idea if you wish to keep the second-row seats readily available for use. This deck-board simply straps down across the folded seats (for my dogs). In my case I have a solid, half-height cargo barrier installed, but for a...

      Thanks for the comments, feedback, and recommendations everyone! Little update on this build: towards the end of the fall I finished building the drawings and primary enclosure, upholstering, and installed in the vehicle to start taking it in...

      I swapped the tie down brackets from left to right and vice versa because of the bumper bracket. I made a hole on the bumper for spare tire access.

      Great thread! Time for a resurrection? Maybe everybody knows this but here’s our new-to-us hack for eggs, enabled by our Dometic fridge/freezer: We like eggs, sausage and bacon for breakfast. Note we’ve tried egg-beaters and don’t care for the...

      Thanks, that's a great tip. We do canoe camping, and each person chooses a meal to cook for everyone else. I always do breakfast because I'm up with the sun. I don't have problems with eggs breaking in the hard case, but it's annoying having...

      I've had a misfire from a bad injector. Have you checked all your injectors? I placed a long socket extension against an injector with the engine running, and held the other end to my ear, and could tell which one was bad because it wasn't...

      No sound over a speed bump that I recall. Feels/sounds like it's coming from under the car at the level of the front console but poorly localized. Certainly does not hear like it's more front/rear/left/right.
    • O
      Does it sound like it's coming from any direction? It may be suspension related, only occurring on droop, have you tried going over a speed bump or something similar to see if it happens when suspension is rebounding?

      oakback replied to the thread Towing with a 99 lx470.
      This was me last year, when my front diff grenaded while towing our travel trailer (2600#) 7 hours into a 12 hour trip. $7k repair bill at a dealership, which included a rental Tacoma to finish the trip. I'd recommend a bluetooth OBD2 scanner...

      I have this same issue, after doing a starter/valve cover gasket replacement. Not sure if that's coincidental, but I don't know what I could have done to cause it. I figure if there's a fuel leak it would smell. Some googling says it could be...

      My brother recently rectified a similar issue on a different vehicle. It was fixed by using compressed air to blow out the vent lines. The theory is that gas travels to the charcoal canister from over filling or pressure, breaks up the charcoal...

      I'm the type of guy that always tries the cheap option first, because for many things I don't use it so hard and it's good enough for my uses. The CV axle was one instance where it did not go my way. About a year of regular on-road use had me...

      Long crank to start is most commonly, excessive fuel injector leak down. (start-up fuel starvation) It's likely, something done or not done during service, caused the issue.

      The battery is 6 months old, and a new tie-down bracket has ensured that the cables have stayed tight (I had a loosening issue in the past). The starter is quick and strong, and volt meter hasn't looked out of place.

      My starter failed. Prior to failing, my engine would typically fire to life after engaging the starter for maybe half a second, to perhaps a full second. I replaced the starter, and as part of the process replaced various gaskets, knock...

      Tire balancing and alignment would be first places I would go.
