    The Sandwich

    So after having bought FJ62 in Los Angeles, and having driven it from there to Buenos Aires (putting through a lot), I have shipped it back to Denmark where I can fix it up. And it needs it! I'm not a skilled mechanic. I'm a Navy officer with an engineering degree, so bear with my work. I have...

    I either have problems or I'm an idiot. Transmission and 4WD. Answer: I'm an idiot.

    Hey everyone, So I was on the beach trying to surf the other day. Got stuck in the sand. I did not have 4WD engaged, but the right rear wheel still kept taking all the power though. The only wheel that moved was that one. I had the differential lock engaged in the front, but no 4WD. Am I...

    Any cruiserheads from Europe?

    Hi guys, I am about to make the decision of shipping and importing my cruiser back to Denmark after my epic roadtrip. I have one worry though. How hard will it be for me to get parts. This model has not - on Danish plates - driven on Danish roads before (according to Toyota Denmark and the...

    FJ62 vs. a bull in Peru of all countries... (spoiler: bull dies)

    Hi guys, Just uploading this because I thought some of you might like it. I am lucky enough to have the time and money to travel from Los Angeles to Argentina in my FJ62 with my girl. Two nights ago we hit a bull which the owner was dragging through a city area. It went crazy and ran across...

    Hi fellas, Need some advice on my brakes. Just installed new brakepads yesterday. Brand new. No certain brand though... I drove around today and I could feel that they were dragging a lot! Now I took the wheel and the new pads off and I cannot see what is wrong. I have three different...

    Advice needed on FJ62 88, with throttle issues

    Hey fellas! I'm continuing my way down through Southamerica in my FJ62 and have made it to Ecuador this far. No breakdowns this far but... The engine is acting a little weird. I am driving in 3000 metres currently but it has been going on for a while and I can't find any explanation. My...

    Advice needed on high altitude driving Atitude

    Hey fellas! I'm driving through Southamerica at the moment, and there is a mountain I want to climb. However the trailhead starts at 4600 metres. This means I have to drive up there in my 1988, FJ62, with a 3FE engine. Engine is in pretty good condition and we've had no breakdowns in the past...

    Want to fix big dent - what to do?

    Hi guys, I bought my car with this giant dent in it (which most likely is why the cars status is salvaged). Anyhow I feel like the car deserves to have that dent fixed. I've been trying to find inspiration here on ih8mud, Youtube and Google in general. Most people use a combination of a...

    Screws stuck

    Hi folks, Hope I'm in the right forum, to ask this question. I can't take credit for being a mechanic, so I hope someone who can will help me out here. The side mirror of my FJ62, 1988, is bouncing just enough for me to get annoyed by it, so I'm trying to take it apart. But I'm having...

    What is this part?

    Hey mudders, I took over my FJ62 with a bunch of spareparts, but I'm a noob and know nothing about Landcruisers just yet. I've been going through the FSM to find everyone of them, but haven't had luck with it all yet. Hope some of you will help me on some of these parts. I'll post pictures and...

    FJ62, 1988, hot transmission, jumps out of 2nd gear

    Hey guys, Two simple questions in the bottom of this loong post. I looked for a similar thread, but couldn't find any, so here's a new one. The other day I was driving down a Sandy road, and did some pretty cool offroading. Did a little bit of climbing on some rocks too. It was freaking...

    Electronic maintenance schedule for free

    Hi guys, So I used to work in the navy where I did all maintenance according to schedules, and it worked pretty great. So as nerdy as can be, I copied the FSM maintenance schedules into a Google Sheet document. Here's a direct link to it. Check it out and see if it's something that you can use...

    Door check hits window

    Hey again everyone, I'm looking for anyone else who experienced what's happening to my FJ62. My rear left door check hits the window when it's all the way down. So the window is blocked and cant come up. Also the door check scratches the window. I managed to sneak my phone in to get a couple...

    FJ62, master power window switch removal

    Simple question... How do I get it off without destroying it? I looked everywhere for similar questions asked. Couldn't find any, so guess I'm an idiot. I'm afraid of just pulling it out even though I assume it's snapped on to the door. The FSM doesn't say anything about the master power window...

    Noisy coil springs FJ62, 1988

    Hey everyone. I bought my Fj62 three weeks ago, and I am not only in love with it - I also discovered the beauty of 4x4's in general. My first but definitely not the last 4x4! I had it by a mechanic because I needed a brake adjustment, and needed new shocks. As I'm traveling through Mexico...
