    Best Aftermarket headLights For Fj40

    thanks. It has a split seam in it, but it has a 30% or so overlap and IMO its much better than the split plastic loom because it does not have the chance of holding moisture.

    I also prefer halogen on any of my older builds. You just have to have them wired properly to get the maximum output. This is the relay block I put together for my 40. I’m using the same Hella H4 E-codes ive used for years on builds.

    Thats what I thought, but they must have had some reasoning behind adding it. All the work was done by a local fab shop the builds street rods.

    So the shop that the PO had do the work on my 40 installed a panhard bar on the front of the truck. This 40 has stock suspension with a 350 sbc and power steering. What would be the biggest benefit of having a panhard on this?

    Individual body mounts available?

    I’d really prefer to not have to buy the whole kit to just do the rear 4 mounts. If I was lifting the body off it would be different, but I’m not and all the other body mounts appear to be perfectly healthy. Anybody?

    This was my euro ‘64. This picture was taken around 1997.

    Awesome! I have always wanted one. Really regret not buying one 20 years ago when they were much more affordable. I’ll probably never be able to have one now. I was heavily into classic aircooled VW’s in the 90’s and have a thing for the classic german styling. I was a type III guy...

    Zoro sells them too. Every couple months the have a 20% off coupon for registered members which knocks the price down to under $60 each. That’s a screaming deal as the stands are well made.

    Those stands are made by Sumner. They are designed to work with pipe, hence the cradle support, but they work very well for supporting vehicles to. Adjustable up to 40+” or so
