    Stock suspension and fire roads - pretty impressive for stock

    I had the first opportunity to spend a more lengthy amount of time on some fire roads yesterday and was pretty impressed for a stock suspension. Way better than the stock suspension on my GX460 (base not premium with air suspension), which would rattle my teeth out (hence the stock suspension...

    Wrap

    Mentioned this on another thread, but I decided on a full clear self healing XPEL Ultimate Plus wrap on my HE. I decided that after the black GX this would be the best way to fully enjoy all uses of the truck, which will see mild trail time, dumps of snow that need to be pushed off, long...

    Highway driving during break in miles

    I've been putting a mix of driving in so far, mostly around town, stop and go up to 45, with some limited time at highway speeds (keeping it under 60). No hard stops or starts, no towing. Based on weather I may have to take the truck on a drive across WA for a bike race this weekend and then...

    I'm officially back!

    I've been lurking on the 200 series for awhile but posting more regularly the last few months. Tonight I made it official. My 2020 Black HE was delivered to the dealer today. I can't say I loved the price I ended up with, but all in all I couldn't be happier. Whether you like names or not I...

    Rock sliders/skids for GX 460?

    I'm looking at replacing my FJ-62 (deceased, fire) with a new GX. I won't be asking it to do what the '62 did but I don't have the time to build a new truck right now (I might be buying back the 62 and storing it for a future rebuild). However it will see lots of snow and logging roads, some...

    R.I.P. Moby

    My FJ-62 burned to the ground (mostly) this evening. Fortunately it was parked and no one was hurt. No idea what happened. I had just tightened the belts and looked everything over after replacing my oil pan gasket. Drove it 30 minutes, parked it in a garage and came back to find it burned...

    3FE MAF to AFM conversion

    3FE AFM to MAF conversion Some time back I posted a thread about my in car PC, LC1 wideband O2 and upcoming AFM to MAF conversion (https://forum.ih8mud.com/60-series-wagons/421776-lc-1-wideband-o2-pc-install.html). I'm using a Split Second PSC1-005 with the inverted 5-0v signal to match the...

    Inner Shifter seal - same part on H42 and H55?

    I need part #072 in the diagram below (the one on my H55 is torn almost in half and I think is responsible for the intermittent mild gear oil smell that I've got). SOR has different part numbers for the H55 and H42. Does anyone know if these are the same part or interchangeable? It would make...

    LC-1 (wideband O2) and PC install

    Last spring I installed a full PC and 7" touchscreen in my FJ-62. I'm a software engineer at Microsoft so a PC install was a natural choice. It is a dual core Duo with 4GB RAM and a 90GB SSD (the only way to go for off road, I can cruise down logging road with the music and GPS running without...

    Rear axle bearing grease (semi-floater)?

    I'm about to put the rear axle shafts back in my '62 (had the diff out for a regear). The bearings are relatively new and I packed them with grease when I installed them. However when I pulled the axle shafts out to pull the diff there was little grease left on them. How are these lubricated...

    Wanted  FJ-60/62 Quarters New or Custom Cut

    I've got some CoolCruiser patch panels but unfortunately they are not going to be enough coverage. Looks like it would be best/easiest to go from the window line down to get all the rust out. OEM panels from Toyota are discontinued. Anyone have new (OEM) panels that they want to sell or...

    Is this the long awaited A440 dual case adapter from Marlin?

    I hadn't been to the Marlin site in a while and happened to notice this: Landcruiser Splitcase Automatic Dual Case (FJ60) | Marlin Crawler, Inc. FJ-60s never got an auto in the states... so anyone know if this is the FJ-62/A440F doubler that they were supposedly working on? Or does the...

    My experiment with adding caster

    About a year ago I dumped my 31x10.5 BFG ATs and moved to some Nitto Terra Grappler 265/75R16s (32x10.5s). I noticed that they tended to wander and pull more, especially on grooved roads, at highway speeds and on washboard. I recently started reading about caster and the role that it plays in...

    Early 60 front DC driveshaft in a 62?

    I'm about to install caster plates which may push me towards needing a DC front driveshaft in my FJ-62. I believe, correct me if I'm wrong, that pre '85 60s (before the space was added to the back 4 speed tranny), had a DC front driveshaft. Will this shaft fit an FJ-62? I can have it...

    voltage sensing relay (0-5 volt)?

    Not sure if this is the right forum for this but I'm going to take a shot... I'm looking into replacing the (AFM) air flow meter on my FJ-62 with a programmable MAF unit. The main problem that I've got is that the OEM AFM unit has a fuel pump relay integrated into it. If the meter is not...

    Thank you ARB USA!

    I've had a rear air locker for about 4 years. It has blown oil up the air line since day 1. Holds air no problem (for hours without cycling the compressor). Went back and forth a couple of times with the shop that did the install and they certainly stood behind it and did their best to figure...

    Dropped my 3rd member - what should I check?

    I pulled my rear 3rd member this morning and it slipped off the crate that I was using to supported it as I slip it out from under the truck. It only fell about 8" but it landed on the ring gear. No sign of damange to the ring gear (not even a scrape) but I'm wondering what, if anything, I...

    Remove leaf from OME heavy front?

    I've got OME heavy springs up front and medium in back. In the back I pulled the 3rd leaf from the bottom and added helper air bags (normally empty, I fill them to 15 or 20 psi when the truck is loaded). I'm thinking about pulling a leaf from the front to soften it a bit. In the back the 3rd...

    Remote Transmission Cooler Install

    I finally got my transmission temp gauge hooked up and found that, yeah, my transmission has been a little hotter than I would like. I used to have a huge 12"x12" aux cooler in front of the A/C condensor but in really hot weather it blocked too much air flow. I replace it with a heat sink...

    My CCOT Quarter Panel Patches Arrived Today

    Just a heads up - CCOT is making these again. When I ordered a few weeks back I asked them why they had discontinued them. Their previous process was having some problems and they were ending up with some waves. They wanted to get the new process solid before they offered them again. I...
