    HELP!!! Need Extended U-Bolts today - where to get on no notice?

    Long story short, I’m about to fly down to Georgia today to pick up my FJ62 and drive back to Virginia. However, my brother is in the process of shimming the front OME suspension and the bolts have completely seized in the removal process; no amount of heat or impact power will budge them...

    Master Key Programming for 2004 (and others)

    There are a few threads on this but not one that really ties together which keys to get from where, where to have it cut, and how to program it. The FAQ has a thread within a thread that very well covers how to program a master key specifically for a 2004; link is here: 2004 LX470 transponder...

    With some help from Mud, I attempted to install an aftermarket Pioneer head unit in my 2004 LC while maintaining full functionality of the MFD (including climate, backup cam, trip info, etc), and I can say without question that it can be done. I took out the factory tape deck and installed the...

    Long time MUDder, First Time 100 owner

    Hello All! I'm one of those crazy idealists that thinks one day I'll have enough money and garage space to have a Land Cruiser in every flavor to choose from each morning. Currently have a 1988 FJ62 that I bought from the (brief) second owner in 2006, and recently picked up a one-owner 2004...

    For Sale  1988 FJ62 w/GEN 3 Vortec, OME, and many upgrades

    EDIT - NOT SOLD, BUT THANKFULLY NO LONGER FOR SALE (WHICH IS MUCH BETTER)! I never thought I would even consider selling my beloved 1988 FJ62 – the Grey Ghost – but sometimes circumstances change, life gets in the way, and we have to be more rational than emotional. For a variety of reasons...

    FJ60 on a North Face t-shirt (Pics)

    So there I was, strolling through my local military exchange, when I saw this new t-shirt from The North Face: Came in multiple colors/sizes so I got this one for me and a blue one for my stepson. Would've been better if it was a 62 on there but I'll take it... :hillbilly: Can you imagine...

    Headlight upgrades and VA Safety Inspection

    Gents, I'm looking to upgrade the headlights in my 62 using the popular harness from slcfj62 here on Mud, and wanted to upgrade the headlamps to H4/H1s. However, H4s - and any non-DOT headlamps - are technically illegal here in VA (but H1s are okay). Are any of you running these and/or have...

    Ever had your wheel come off at 55 MPH? I did...

    ...about three hours ago. We were driving down the Fairfax (VA) County Parkway at about 55 mph when I started to feel a little wobble from the back - though it had been fine a couple hours earlier. Then something hard bounced off the driver's window or door, like a rock hitting the windshield...

    FJ62 Transmission Cooler inlet/outlet size (in radiator)

    Hi All, I posted this same question on my swap thread but wanted to reach the widest possible audience. While doing a Vortec swap I replaced my stock radiator with an identical CSF 2708 radiator and wanted to install -6an fittings for the integrated transmission cooler inlet/outlets. However...

    PLEASE help with massive coolant leak!

    Gents, hate to admit I've been lurking here for a while, but still learning the FJ62 and my Jeep CJ experience does little good here. In any case, I've learned a lot so far from all of you and hope to be of help in the near future. In the meantime, I need to ask for your help. I've done many...
