    COVID-19 chat

    The hideous part of this bug is you are contagious before you can know it; and for up to 9 days after you are "cured." The six foot rule helps, and being in separate vehicles helps. You'll be touching fuel pumps who knows who have handled, and where those hands have been: sanitizer a must...

    Oil Filter

    Simple question, but seriously, three for three Toyota factory filter, Bosch and Fram filters don't fit. My oil filter is 2.5 inches tall; all of the replacements I have are 3 inches tall, including the factory filter I got from Toyota ... lmao. And no, my filter didn't shrink. Toyota Genuine...

    Mom & Pop Diners

    Anyone have suggestions for smallish Mom & Pop breakfast diners south of I-84 / Overland, between Meridian and Boise ? Lots of small strip malls, but it seems to be a dead zone for affordable morning eateries. Plenty of lunch spots, but haven't seen breakfast restaurants - thinking they...

    Popping off an FJ door panel?

    Anyone point me at how to remove an FJ door panel without breaking every rivet stud keeping it there? Recommended rivet tool, parts needed to reattached, etc. Hmm ... ignore that. Just found a video of a guy doing the job. Seems the FJ door panel is attached just like my 1963 Mercury Comet...

    FJC Lightbar wiring route

    Anyone know or can point to the proper routing of wires for a rack mounted lightbar? Pretty clear the grommets allow wires to be run into and down the rack to channels in the roof, down a corner pillar under thr trim; but from there where do the OEM wires head? Into the engine compartment or...

    FJC - Stock Front Spring Query

    I'm trying to explain why my FJ sags driver side after swapping shocks (kept the OEM springs). A person just informed me of the stiffer driver side spring ... and I'm trying to confirm and learn how to figure out if indeed the dealer swaped sides on me. Anyone have personal experience with OEM...

    Delya Posts

    Finding I am doing a LOT of the odd typing in my posts lately and I haven't determined whether it's my fingers or my keyboard ... I suspect a brain to finger connection issue. I know - that's what preview is for, but seems that isn't working for me. Major typos still get through. Is there a...

    Getting old - need thoughts

    Okay - for starters want to be clear not looking for sympathy - rather - if anyone has been through this and has words of advice: Neurologists say my back - lumbar vertebre bones; discs; and muscle attachments are failing - they have been since about 1985 when I self mixed about 100 bags of...

    Apologies for Off-Topic

    But I really tried to find a better spot to post this. I am impressed with the range of knowledge contained within this group. So when I decided to dump all my old vinyl LP's, and saw nothing in Google that looked like record shops where selling in bulk or even consignment would be possible, it...

    FJ Cruiser Automatic Mod ?

    Hi - anyone ever find a way to disable OVERDRIVE in their FJC? Seems to me 90% of the hunting I encounter could be avoided by simply disabling OD so the truck stays in 5th. Going to 4th works, but sucks gas and is noisy. 5th seems perfect until it kicks in the OD. Earlier rigs had a OD off...

    Lamps

    So I was thinking a slightly brighter headlamp might be worth a few bucks. So I purchased a pair of Sylvania Silverstar Ultra lamps. I replaced the OEM Osram Bilux 3700K bulbs, which have 13000 miles on them. But - to see if the money bought anything, I actually measured the peak headlight...
