    We are building a house and picking out some high end appliances for the kitchen. Any brands to avoid? I got sucked into online reviews and it seems most of the high end stuff gets some bad reviews but in reality, who reviews a positive experience with their appliances! Here is what we are...

    So I have a bit of wander in my steering and some death wobble on the highway. I thought it might have just been unbalanced 40s but then I noticed a little thump In my steering when idling and a metallic clang noise over bumps. I put the 5 year old in the drivers seat to wiggle the steering...

    What about exporting from the US????

    Admittedly, I haven't really researched this but I've heard some dealer employees and middle eastern friends talk about how a lot of Land Cruisers are purchased here and shipped to Africa and the Middle East. In fact, I have a buyer for my 100 series that's supposed to buy my truck next week...

    Source for FJ62 idler pulley adjuster/slide

    My bolt that goes into the adjuster sheared apart! Does anyone know where to get a replacement or the size of the bolt? I bought what I think is the correct little part that links the pulley and adjuster screw but not 100% sure and it won’t be here for a week.
