    Transmission cooler is a great addition and one of the first things I always suggest. Glad you are ahead of the curve. Definitely need to see pictures of the poverty package cruiser.

    you are going to overheat your transmission the bigger you go on tires with the auto trans.

    The CATS on our OBDI vehicles have no temperature sensors whatsoever nor an indicator light for CATS in any function. We have a check engine light that alerts you to emission related codes.

    Good find. Thanks for the follow up.

    What safety reasons specifically? Usually it's the other way around. You can't put a 12.5" wide tire on a stock narrow rim.

    Overheat light? Your post is very confusing. The Cats dont have sensors for heat. They have oxygen sensors for emissions and tuning your air fuel mixture.

    You have a 62 with the heat generating A440F auto transmission. The larger the tire you go without regearing the more damage you could cause. I recommend installing a transmission cooler regardless of tire size. Tires: 31x10.5 as stated above is...

    I swap out my tires every 5-6 years regardless of tread or cracking. I don't trust old tires and you telling us yours are 8+ years old is alarming. STOP, go get new tires. You can finance new tires if you're struggling. Get rid of those old...

    This is my guess without playing with the FSM and being under your truck: Somebody took the neutral switch indicator and the 4WD switch indicator on your tcase and swapped them. You need to mecfhanically remove them from the tcase and swap them...

    I like the Blue Sea 7622 ACR as well. I like having the switch in my truck to control the isolate, auto, or manual join. I also like that when the motor shuts off I can hear the ACR clunk and isolate the batteries. Hearing that relay clunk gives...

    Hello, 1. Are you working with the rear axle or front axle? 2. If it is the rear axle then is it semi-float or full float? 3. Please post a picture if you can.

    Post up in the classified with a wanted add looking for an A440F transmission.

    Is this your daily driver? What is your current budget? How about your timeline? I would suggest investing in converting back to SOA which is not hard to do given what few parts you would actually need.

    Not mine but very similar. Look at post #3 here: https://forum.ih8mud.com/threads/ford-shock-tower.173006/

    I love when people post the wiring information along with the part. Thanks for the helpful hint. Mine is still running strong and I have a spare at the moment. :D

    These old landcruisers are anything but cheap. If you cannot work on them yourself then plan on paying a lot for a mechanic to do the work. A 35 year old vehicle is going to need a lot of love.
  • Randy88FJ62
    Randy88FJ62 replied to the thread 3" lift conversion to 2".
    Your best bet is to remove the SOA lift completely. It will be cheaper, safer, and still achieve light wheeling / camping. I have a set of stock steering arms I could let go cheap. Then you should find someone's stock old steering setup and buy...

    Randy88FJ62 replied to the thread 3" lift conversion to 2".
    1. Your steering setup is a death trap, please don't put your family in that truck. Washers and standard nuts holding together that crappy welded together steering linkage is asking for trouble. Steering at the very minimum needs castle nuts with...

    I find it very ironic when people pound their chest about buying US made anything and drive a Toyota. Not only they drive a Toyota, but only Japanese parts can be used as replacement parts since everything else is seen as inferior. I'll show...

    Thanks for sharing, that's an interesting concept to keep the pulley and rope in place.
  • Randy88FJ62
    Which one are you referring to?
  • Randy88FJ62
    I'm concerned the main groove OD for the rope may not be deep enough and could come off if I am winching too fast and the rope slacks too much. We shall see. Not bad for zero $$$.
  • Randy88FJ62
    Well I got lazy and did not want to dump $100 and more time into this snatch block so here we are. I'll hopefully take it out for some testing this weekend:

    You do not need it to pass smog in California. I took it out for dual batteries with no ill effect.
