    BJ74 won’t shut down

    I'm guessing you're military in Oki. Hope you ship the LC home when you PCS back stateside. When I was there a running used engine from typhoon motors on Foster was about $550. Bet money if you buy a spare 13BT and put it in the back of the BJ74 to ship with it you could likely sell it on Mud...

    WDYD What did you do on your 70 series today?

    If you go to a "you pull it" junkyard to look for parts it is very hard to find any toyota trucks to salvage from. Every taxi in Japan is a Toyota. Every taxi in Thailand is a Toyota. Every Taxi in Singapore is a Toyota...There is a reason for this.

    WDYD What did you do on your 70 series today?

    Brilliant engineering with the toilet sideways but at a slight angle with the elongated bowl, less likely to slosh out on braking and that vigourous LC acceleration. No concern with the high G's in the turns. Fuel cans right next to the bowl so you can flush with diesel or mogass and...

    Tall skinny tires

    Took a moment to measure the tread on the extra grip recaps today since I have the new one mounted to compare to the others. New tire has 17/32" of tread, tires with approximately 15-20k miles have 10 /32" of tread. I don't know exactly because my GPS speedometer has only been on for about...

    BJ74 won’t shut down

    Put it in 5th gear and dump the clutch at idle with the brake on till you figure out how to properly kill the engine.

    Winch recommendation needed for hidden winch mount

    No matter what winch you get make sure that you coat the terminals inside the switchbox with grease on install. Inside the switchbox there will be your wireless module and solonoid switches with heavy leads going to the motor. The solonoid switches will likely have threaded copper studs that...

    Tall skinny tires

    Bought another 235 85r 16 "extra grip" recap from tirecappers to replace the one where I cut the sidewall on a rock running 12 PSI on The relic run in uwharrie. The cut tire will go to spare duty. These tires continue to be awesome on slippery clay mud, rocks, and in the woods. I drive...

    Is getting 12v from a 24v 70 series really this easy?

    From experience, if you tap positive between the batteries for 12V even with a light load it will kill one of your batteries. I did this to get 12V for my radio thinking that it was such a small load that it wouldn't matter. Within 2 weeks I had to roll start my LC to get home. Upon arrival...

    70 series unselectable locked hubs

    Ditto others-My BJ73 had drive flanges and it was simple and inexpensive to change to manual locking hubs.

    WDYD What did you do on your 70 series today?

    Took the LC dove hunting for opening day. Got there a bit late cuz it was raining didn't want to sit in the rain. Doves flying Way high by the time I got there after 4:00 p.m.. On the way had a chance to drive the bj73 for extended period between 65 and 70 mph with the AC running on a...

    WDYD What did you do on your 70 series today?

    Yeah sorry for too many questions man. The new E15 gasoline is kicking my ass in my lawn mower and small engines. The plastic gas can I've been using for 20 years ain't cutting it no more. Alcohol in this new gas keeps absorbing moisture and liquid. I really like the VP racing 5 gallon cans...

    WDYD What did you do on your 70 series today?

    Are they very durable? Don't expect it to be as heavy duty as a military Jerry can, but it is any better than a normal plastic 5 gallon fuel jug? Does it have the annoying safety device in the nozzle? I'm in the market for another fuel jug. I might get one of these cuz it fits in a Jerry can...

    I had one like that on my Old FJ40 back in college.
