    FJ60 Door Panels: Customizable and Affordable

    Is the plan for those of us with brown interiors to paint them a matching color or is there something planned for that as well?

    Odd Brake Issues

    I bought a 40 a couple of years ago and it had a lot of work already done to it, including a 4 wheel disc brake conversion. I noticed shortly after buying it, that if I stomp on the brakes like an emergency situation, I get a bit of a feeling almost like ABS for a split second, and the braking...

    Factory FJ40 Soft Tops, Bikini Tops, and Dusters.

    I'm hoping someone will have switched and know if there is a difference. Nothing I can do with the door, it's all the way up, I'm barely scrubbing on the actual framing. I'm SOA on 35's, though technically my tires are measuring 33.5.

    Factory FJ40 Soft Tops, Bikini Tops, and Dusters.

    Shot in the dark here, but do you know if the 5 window soft top would be any taller than a bestop setup? I just barely scrape my top as I get in my garage and cannot go any higher.

    For Sale '86 FJ62??

    Very odd. You would think if they were going to combine the best of both if would have efi and a stick shift, not carb and an automatic, but a strange example regardless. The interior is such an odd mash up of the two.

    constant pull and vague steering

    Great info. I'll look into these, maybe play with the toe in a bit as well. Really couldn't say on the history of the trunnion or anything in the axle. Not sure if there is a way for me to verify without tearing into it enough to justify doing a rebuild anyway. I'm not sure how to tell on...

    constant pull and vague steering

    Excellent questions. No whine, in fact the power steering pump and all associated hoses are brand new OEM as of a month ago and appear to work great. I'll jack up the truck and see about that tomorrow. Not sure how to tell on the stabilizer but I had thought about removing it and seeing how...

    constant pull and vague steering

    I've been all over the caster spectrum on this truck and while it does ever so slightly make it feel nicer, it still wants to follow the crown badly. Gone from almost no caster to 5* and everything in between. It really feels like it needs more caster, but the more caster I provide, the more...

    constant pull and vague steering

    Wouldn't this indicate a constant pulling to one side only. I probably need to better describe my symptom. If the crown is on the left, it will pull hard to the left, if on the right, hard to the right. I'm happy to do this as well, but logic says if it pulls differently based on slope, then...

    constant pull and vague steering

    If that would magically fix my issues, sure. It's my wife's truck. Would that fix my issues.. no. Been in other trucks bigger (lift and tires) that handled much better, so I'm skeptical to think that others have figured out the magic bullet with bigger vehicles that can't be replicated, but I...

    constant pull and vague steering

    Anyone know if there is a section in the FSM for how much effort it should take to turn the steering wheel? My truck is on 35's but the effort on this truck is quite a lot. I'm wondering if that has something to do with my issues as well. I'm at about 6 lbs on the fish scale to get it to...

    constant pull and vague steering

    Ok, appreciate the feedback. I think that was our next step as well.

    constant pull and vague steering

    This alignment was from the shop prior, and while I have messed with the caster and toe, the camber didn't change yet there are differing results. Can't seem to get a shop that agrees for whatever reason.
