    gas mileage for a 60/62??

    i was mostly teasing. i love my fj62 - but efficient she aint! if toyota had a sense of humor the window sticker should have read "results reported to the EPA indicate the most owners will think there's a hole in their gas tank, because the needle goes down faster than your ...fill in the...

    paul dinapoli - H55 swap thread

    good reader!! I did have to revise - i had to shorten the back section a bit as well - and sleeve that section too. i dont love the fact that I have 2 splices in the whole thing...but my friend put some time and love into this this kit he literally made that from some solid bar stock...

    paul dinapoli - H55 swap thread

    yeah - the 4-lo shift rod that connects the A440 to the transfer case is too long - cuz the automatic is like a mile long... so yep - gotta cut the linkage and glue it back together / sleeve it - build a new one - whatever your flavor - I had to find a way to make it work. my solution was to...

    How To Videos Thread

    this is nothing new - but I just helped a buddy get his engine ready to attach the bellhousing & gearbox to the block - and we used the piece of bread trick to extricate the old pilot bearing. I recorded it with my iphone for posterity.

    FREE Free: Front and Passenger FJ62 Seats + Brown Center Console + Rear Hitch

    damn - i'd gladly pay for the center console if you'd be willing to ship? I could send you a box with some nice portland craft beer in it...and then you could ship the console back in the same box? (to make it enticing!!)

    Willamette Blvd Service Center - Closing!!

    he said it was OK for me to share this... "You could probably let them know I'm at least closed for the next few months while I sort things out and make a plan for the future. Once I get all these rigs that have been sitting around forever done and gone I might find out that I miss it. For...

    Willamette Blvd Service Center - Closing!!

    I had hopes of having Josh do a diesel swap for me - wonder if he's leaving cruiser work completely - or moving locations? anyone hear why they're closing? I've heard a few tidbits of info. anyone have anything concrete as to why?

    Fj62 Rear Shoulder Belts in FJ60

    i did find all the parts needed to put shoulder belts in. Someone in Oregon was parting out a very well wrecked 1990 FJ62 with brown interior and I grabbed several parts & pieces. couldn't believe my good fortune that they came available - and that they were within driving distance of my house.

    Another Auto to Manual Switch. Question about driveshafts and such.

    yeah - you have a lot of options. the H42 vs H55 part has little bearing on t-case sourcing part of the project. Either find a used one and rebuild that while you drive your rig...or tear yours down and reuse the one you have. using the one you already have is nice if you know the history and...

    Another Auto to Manual Switch. Question about driveshafts and such.

    I was confused by all this when I did my swap too...maybe these visuals will help. first - the a440 + t-case is like a mile long...so the distance between the 2 flanges is distance X the H42 & H55 are much shorter gearboxes - so once the gearbox is assembled with the t-case attached and...

    60s on Film

    Just saw this last night - watching a spy series "Covert Affairs" on amazon prime: scenes are set up to make it seem like it's in former soviet Georgia or Chechnya. Shows up in several shots - nice condition, saw the automatic shifter - seems like an FJ62. couple scenes could hear the engine...
