It’s time to get another FJ40. It’s been too long. I want a project, as I can’t afford a finished rig. I understand the limitations on a price point around $3500.
Ideally I would like the rig to have something positive(not rotting, running, frame solid, etc). I do want a hard top. Prefer a ‘76...
Hey guys. I haven't been around in a while. I have a lead on a 1974 40 that needs a lot of work. I have a friend that is going to do the metal work for next to nothing.
The truck isn't going to be a resto but I would like to know what type of front fender lights it should have and other...
This is absurd. 47k miles and I'm replacing the alternator.
Top it off Locally at part store part is $282. Toyota? Upper $600. Plus almost $200 to install. This is ridiculous.
Does anyone have a FSM for a 5.7 tundra as this is going to have to be a DIY job for me. Thanks.
New tires(5000 miles)
New plugs, wires, plug seals
New Valve cover seal
Front main seal
The truck isn't perfect but it's worth $2000. It has typical aging in appearance and operation but everything is solid and works. The wheels need...
I am wanting to get my old 40 back on the road. The reason I took it off was electrical. The blinker switch inside the unknown year GM column broke AND the brake lights developed a short. It's old, when it rains it pours.
This is what I want to do. Build a completely new wiring system not...
Yeah the color paired with the rarity of the sport package and the 5.7L sold me on it.
It was about $5k under book and had less than 30k miles.
The end deal maker was the 20mpg. Better than the 12mpg the 80 gets so I figured in the mileage I was going to be driving and it was actually going...
I can vouch that they are safe in a crash. I rear-ended a car I was running 55 they were stopped, stupid teenage moment. I drove the truck home all lights worked, and everything. Did bend the front cross member. Super solid truck with ample power.
Eventually that is in the plans just not now. The wife saw the price on the TRD SC on eBay and laughed if that tells you anything.
I can't imagine what kind of power it would have with the SC. It has more than ample power for normal driving as is.
Well as far as towing I will not be doing much but like having the ability. If I'm going to be strapped with the vehicle for a while I need it to be as flexible as possible. The most I would forsee towing right now would be an fj40 on a trailer.
I like the idea of having more power than I need...
I'm in the market to get a new rig. A new truck that won't be breaking down due to old age, high mileage, and one that is comfortable to drive a small distance(not a 1st gen 4runner with bad springs and no ac).
I want either a Newer 5.7L tundra double cab or a newer double cab taco.
