    TTT -- The Tool Thread

    Replacing my Craftsman boxes that I bought in high school. That was 1978. These only have to last a little more than half that long. I have a couple US General 5 drawer mechanic's carts that are holding up very well. A lot of box for not a lot of money.

    The case of the Misidentified FJ

    This is a 1987 FJ60 body on a 1992 FJ80 frame with a 1995 FZJ80 rear axle and a brand new LS3 Connect & Cruise package. I built it and I call it an FJ140. I don't feel bad about it one little bit. :)

    Driver door hinge adjustment

    Get the wrench, crazy without it. Do not loosen bolts much, just enough to "tweak" the door without having to hold it in place.
