    Moab May 19-23

    Going on vacation to Moab towards the end of May. Unfortunately, we will be taking our JL Wrangler and not our LX470 as it's $400 vs $800 in gas. We will be doing mild/easy trails, nothing hardcore. PM if you're interested in wheeling with us.

    Help!! Need part # for cooling fan relay connector

    I work at a new car dealership, but not a Toyota one. I've called 2 Toyota dealers trying to get the part number for the cooling fan relay electrical connector as mine is disintegrating. I've already got the relay. I guess it's a real pain to look up this connector and was hoping someone here...

    HVAC Control Head & Blower Motor

    1998 Lexus LX470 with factory radio (pre-nav) and digital readout/automatic climate control. So, about 3 weeks ago, I started my car to let it warm up as it was -10 and let it run for about 15 minutes. When I climbed in to go to work, I realized the fan wasn't blowing. I played with the fan...

    Factory Locker Swap

    First of all, "Yes I did search extensively". I've got a shot at rear axle assembly with rear locker, for less than $400. It will have a 1 year parts only warranty (standard salvage yard warranty) and I will be having a Jeep dealership I used to work at install it (they lifted my LX and the...

    Removable Barrier behind 1st row?

    I read several threads on barriers, but none had the info I was looking for. My wife and I often travel alone, and right now we're in the process of moving. Any recommendations for a removable barrier to use when the 2nd row is folded forward all the way? I've looked at a few but I'm worried...

    Milwaukee meetup?

    Anyone interested in a Milwuakee meetup, like a "Cruisers and coffee" deal? I've got my eyes on a couple places that might work. Nothing huge, just a little get together. Probably a Sunday morning.

    CB Antenna 102" hold down

    I'm installing a 102" whip CB antenna on my LX and I'm using a hold down mounted on the roof rack, but I'd really like less arc to it. While I can slip the antenna farther through the hold down, I believe the wind will slide it to it's current position. Any ideas?

    I did extensive searching, but I need some help here, my factory wheels are toast. I need to order new wheels and tires for my 1998 LX. I don't really want to use spacers, so I'm wanting aftermarket wheels. I'm looking at a 275/70R18 tire. So I'm looking for a backspacing and offset...

    Finally time to lift my LX470

    I've been following mud for a couple years now, and this past June I finally found a good deal on a 1998 LX470. It had a bouncy ride, but I figured I'd live with it until it was time to lift. The ride progressively got bouncier and bouncier. About 2 months ago, the AHC system finally failed and...

    Finally got my Hundy in Illinois

    I've been reading this forum for over a year, searching autotrader and searchtempest, trying to find the perfect overlanding vehicle. Sure, I originally wanted a fully locked 80, but after reading so many posts about how great the 100s drive, I started looking more closely. One special vehicle...
