    Things I like to do to my 1999 Land Cruiser.

    I went shopping for some solar LED sting lights. I think I got them on evilBay for about $15. Their battery lasts about 8-10 hours, and self-charge during the day. I had a hard time finding some with a 'warm' color. =)

    My OEM CV axles have a tiny bit of "in and out" free play, and no radial free play.

    Things I like to do to my 1999 Land Cruiser.

    Rebuilding the front CV axles. Again. I'm at 265,538 miles. I finished the passenger side yesterday, and will be doing the driver's today. Sharing this for my own records, as well as to clarify a few details I have to look up each time I do this job -- there are parts specific to the inner and...

    98-2005 Landcruiser DEPO 1 piece clear head lamp Interest

    I pulled the trigger and am installing (retrofitting) Morimoto D2s 5.0 projectors in my DEPOs in my 1999 LC. My DEPOs are these plastic-lensed ones with side-by-side high/low beams, not the stacked-beam, glass-lensed ones. There's a question at bottom of post about replacement lenses. After...

    Anyone ever installed bigger injectors?

    Yes. That is correct! LOL I feel my previous 8 mpg was reflective of a trend of progressively declining fuel economy, and it triggered me to become particularly concerned that there may be something wrong, or even worse: this truck may not be capable of better MPGs when kitted in its current...

    Things I like to do to my 1999 Land Cruiser.

    The other day (Jan 13, 20020 @265,100 miles) I installed a set of professionally rebuilt Denso 23250-20030 12-hole injectors, replacing the 265,000 mile stock injectors in my '99 LC. It was an easy 1.5 hr "plug and play" job. I bought them for $150 shipped from a reputable injector shop. Price...

    Things I like to do to my 1999 Land Cruiser.

    I decided to start a thread sharing details of things I like to do to my LandCruiser. Some of this is because I do neat things that others might like to see or read about. Some of this is because I like to look back and see the stuff myself. Some of it is because someday I may sell it, and...

    CV Boots Replaced with directions

    I know this is an OLD question, but I have also wondered this in the past! Here's the answer for posterity: Smaller tube (90999-94241) for inner CV, larger tube (90999-94242) for outer CV.

    (Yet Another) Speedo correction thread - Do you like yours?

    Bumping an older thread. I came here looking to verify that an accurately dialed in Yellow Box corrects both the Speedo and the Odometer. I think it does, but wanted to make sure, as I am trying to calculate accurate MPGs. Then I remembered a simple test: I can just unplug the speed sensor...

    98-2005 Landcruiser DEPO 1 piece clear head lamp Interest

    I have! My 1999 LandCruiser was a bone-stock basically bone stock "mall mom" car when I bought it a few years ago, EXCEPT it had Denso Headlights installed. I understand it had been in a minor fender bender and these are just what was randomly installed by the bodyshop, probably because of...

    LX470 HID RETROFIT PROJECTOR BRACKET

    EDIT: oops! I was trying to say that my low beams turn off when when I turn on my high beams, but I was mistaken. I thought my low beams turned off when my high beams came on, but my lows remain on when I activate the high beams. It is my fog lights that turn off when my high beams turn on...

    LX470 HID RETROFIT PROJECTOR BRACKET

    Yay! I need a high-five. Just finished this and the other related threads. Reading up to retrofit Morimoto D2S 5.0 kits into the low beams of my 1999 LandCruiser. It looks like the physical install will be pretty straight forward, but I am curious about what people are doing with wiring to...
