    Builds  Stepping into the 45 Club - My FZJ45 Resto-Mod

    My first post in the 45 forum. I’ve been a longtime Land Cruiser owner. Started with a 60 and now an 80. My current project is a 65 FJ45 LWB. I’m starting with basically a rolling chassis that I picked up from Dennis @Tank5 up in New Mexico. The plan is to drop a 1FZ-FE with an H-55 gearbox...

    45 Long Beds (Gauging Interest)

    Ladies and Gents... I’m new to the 45 section, but I’ve owned a 60 and an 80 series cruiser and I am now starting a 1FZJ45 project. I’ve been around Mud for a while and have a great reputation on the other sub-forums. Which brings me to my offer... I am getting some sheet metal for my build...

    Okay.... this is an opportunity to purchase (what I feel) is one of the best examples of an unmolested, low mileage, rust-free 60-Series Land Cruiser in the country. I’m moving on to other Land Cruiser projects, and I need to raise some capital and clear some garage space for my next project...

    80 series blue fan clutch on a 60?

    I have a new spare blue fan clutch for my 80 series cruiser. I’m replacing the water pump in my 60 and was wondering if I can swap the new FC in at the same time. They appear to be physically compatible. Has anyone done this? Couldn’t find anything on search.

    Builds  Going to meet my new 80

    New guy here (to the 80 forum). I’ve been in the 60 forum for a while now, but I had an itch for an 80 that I just had to scratch. I was shopping for several weeks waiting for the right deal to pop up. I learned pretty quickly that you have to pull the trigger pretty quick on these trucks...

    Oh nooooo..... RUST!

    I was washing my cruiser off a while back and came across this bubble on the bottom of the passenger rear quarter panel. I know it doesn’t look like much compared to most cruisers out in the wild, but I thought I was clean. After consulting with my Land Cruiser support group @OSS @CenTXFJ60...

    Anyone heard of Trail Tailor?

    he does pretty amazing work. You should check him out. I picked up these B-pillar covers to replace my cracked plastic OEM covers and I'm so thrilled that I have to show them off. This is really how they should have come from the factory in the first place.

    What the hell is goin on in Jimmy's Barn
