    I need the manifold that bolts on to the top of an AC compressor from a 3FE engine. I'd love to have the hoses that mate to the manifold as well.

    3F Alternator Upgrade

    So @MES posted up his alternator swap... and it proved very timely. I believe my existing alternator, with external voltage regulator, has been dying a slow death for some time. It came to a head on our camping trip to Coronado National Forest in early May. Our daily drives/explorations weren't...

    Troopy Rear Duct Situation

    Okay, so the Troopy has those rear ducts that vent to the outside. Mine are not in an airtight condition anymore... but beyond that, they aren't weatherproof. Their design allows for water/moisture/debris to enter the truck through the three depressions/grooves along the bottom edge. I'm...

    Membership and Renewal

    So I went through the website as well as a pretty thorough search of the forum here and could not find anything on renewal. Do we need to renew? Does our membership lapse? Do we just do a new membership application in lieu of "renewal"?

    Front Splash Guard

    I need some help on working up some sort of splash guard for my Troopy. It seems clear to me that there was one there at one point... There are two mounting tabs on the front crossmember. And presumable these holes in the side of the chassis rails would have helped. This wide open area...

    SOLD  24V Warn 8274 - Phoenix, AZ

    Given that this is 24V, I thought it would be worth posting here. I've got a Warn 8274 about midway through a restoration... It's a 24V model that I've been toying with converting to 12V. Pictured below are the main parts sandblasted... steel parts have been primed. I have the solenoids, motor...

    Christmas Tree's in Tonto

    My brother-in-law and I managed to snag Christmas Tree permits in the Tonto National Forest. We've got a map showing us valid locations to hunt... and a link showing us what trees are allowed and of what size/spec. My question... Has anyone here done this before and have some pointers on good...

    Quick Axle Clean-up/Painting

    I'm going to be rebuilding both axles on my FJ75 Troopy. All new bearings and seals and while I'm in there I'm replacing rotors, pads, drums, and shoes. Complete rebuild on all four corners. While I'm in that deep I'd like to "refinish" the axles as well. I love what @2fpower does on his trucks...

    70-series Seatbelt Help

    So my Troopy has old-school non-retracting shoulder belts in the front. The passenger one doesn't tighten up well and is not really safe. I've found some good info on 70-series belts in the 60-series forum believe it or not... but not so much here in the 70-series forum. This thread even gives...

    Carburated 3F failed emissions...

    So I've imported an FJ75 from the Middle East and went for an emissions test today in the Phoenix area. I pretty much expected a fail. I don't have a catalytic converter (Gulf Spec in 1991 on these rigs didn't include that). I'm posting here because this forum has the most experience (other...

    MPH on my gauge clusters

    My trucks have arrived in AZ. I just called MVD to clarify what steps I needed to complete to get the cars titled and registered. They said I have to get MPH put on the gauges in order to pass the Level II inspection. Does this match up with your experiences? If I had a valid title/registration...

    @AndrewHadji has a K9 roof rack and Manta awning that I'm purchasing and need to get out to Arizona. Thought I'd check here before I try to arrange something else.

    Front Indicators

    One of the plans I have for my FJ75 are new light housings all the way around. That's when I fell into the rabbit hole of front indicators... The part number for my 1991 FJ75 left indicator is 81520-60280. Shown here... A sample... This part is still available but a bit hard to come by here...

    Builds  1991 FJ75 moving to America

    My family has lived in Abu Dhabi for a bit over 10 years now. All three kids were born here. All my cruiser ownership has been here. But our time has come to an end and we are moving back to the States. We'll be moving to Phoenix, AZ. Sadly, my 80-series can't make the trek. It's a 1997, too...

    40-series maintenance in KC area

    Quick question for you all... I'm the interloper originally from Topeka who was selling an FJ43 in the area. We sold the truck and the new owner has asked about good places to have service done in the KC area. My father and I can help in the Topeka area... but we don't have the contacts there in...

    Toyota Flasher Relay

    I'm hoping some of you all can help me... I'm tagging @Coolerman as he seems to be in the know on this stuff. My truck had the following signal flasher installed when I bought it... and it remains in place right now. But I want something Toyota under there. The OEM part was still installed...

    Emissions for a 40

    I'm strongly considering a move to the Phoenix area... after living in the humid desert for 10 years it seems the dry desert is the next best choice. It's about time to get back to the States. I've got a solid job offer... just need to make a call. I've got a 1977 FJ40, Gulf Spec (so no...

    FJ43 for sale nearby...

    Hope you guys don't mine an interloper popping in really quick. My small business, Mideast Classics, was referenced in your "Spotted thread". I grew up in Topeka and it was my dad who was at the car show with this truck. He and I are trying to sell restored/rebuilt Cruisers back in the States...

    Odd suspension knocking...

    I've got a 97 FZJ80. Stock suspension. OME shocks. Ever since getting the truck back from having the shop replace the rear main seal (ie. they pulled and replace the tranny and transfer case) I've had this strange knocking sound. I first discovered it while on an offroad trip in the dunes. So...

    Question on Warn Remote Nut

    Can anyone help me out on this? I am missing the nut that snugs down on the toggle switch for my older Warn 8274 remote. I'm in the States and want to pick up a replacement but I left the remote in the UAE. Can anyone tell me the thread size of this? Thanks, Joel
