    LX470 Transmission Harness

    I'm in the middle of a motor swap on a '99 LX470 and everything seems to be plug and play with the exception of the main/ large transmission plug, which is a different shape. I assuming the salvage motor came from a later truck with an overdrive transmission. Both plugs have the same amount of...

    1999 Nakamichi Stereo Upgrade, With Factory Amp (simplified)

    OK, so I know this has been documented several times as you can see from some of the photos I lifted from other threads. Everybody seems to think it's difficult to upgrade with this "22pin" molex plug, etc. It's just like any other stereo install. For starters, don't be freaked about cutting...

    BORA 1" Wheel Spacers (these are really nice)

    Nothing new here, just wheel spacers. That being said I just had to show these off to anybody who hasn't seen spacers from BORA. I originally bought a set of 4 wheel centric spacers that were really nice, but despite the claim that they fit my '99 LX, the fronts wouldn't clear the drive...

    Lunchbox Locker

    I know there is a lot of web wheeling going on here but has anybody had any actual dealings with an auto locker (Aussie perhaps) on an all wheel drive setup like the 80 or 100? I had them in the 62 and loved them, but of course you could disconnect the front when driving on the street. Just...

    Opinions on a 9.5 Front Axle Build. Worth It?

    OK, I've had an FJ62 with aussies front and rear on 33" TSL's that saw its fair share of rocks. I have since moved on to a '97 LX, e-lock, 37's, Nitro 5.29's, Longfields, Marlin T-case gears, etc. Problem is, I can't keep the front diff together. I've broken/ chipped the ring gear for a third...

    Sweet Cup Holders

    I'm not normally into "trinkets" for the cruiser but I've seen a lot of interest for a cup holder solution for our trucks on Mud. I'm on vacation at Winter Park, CO so I decided to browse Craigist for the surrounding area. I stumbled across some sweet cup holders that I figured would be popular...

    Got Me Some Shane's Leather!

    Yes, I randomly attended a garage sale in Tulsa, and low and behold I found a set of LX/LC seats that just so happened to match up with my rig. Incredible huh? $100 for the set ain't bad huh?

    Differential Setup, The Little Things Make A Big Difference!

    From previous post(s), I have documented the problems I've had in the past with the (front diff) after re-gearing. I blew up the front on two separate occasions, one was definitely my fault, but the other was not, IMO. On the third attempt, I sent the front to ZUK (renowned for gear setups)...

    Power Steering Pump Whine

    Lately my power steering pump has been whining (increases with rpm) like one does when low on fluid. The fluid level is not low, the pump seems to be working as well as it ever has, and there are no signs of a massive leak, it's always dripped a little here and there though. I know a few...

    3FE Turbo "Kit" (FJ62 or 91-92 fj80)

    Maybe you're familiar with this build, but maybe not. I built the system from scratch 5 or 6 years ago. It's 1 of only 2 3FE turbos that I'm familiar with. I ran it for a couple of years and then the truck went through "several" other owners, neither of which had any mechanical inclination...

    Longfield Longevity?

    I have the front end apart right now so I thought I would check the wear on the Longfields. These are of the "newer" harder generation and have about 11K miles on them. There is a little slack but I don't have anything to compare to. It wasn't easy to get a steady video but if you watch a...

    Front Diff Damage (Again). How Do You Keep One Of These Together?

    Nitro 5.29, cryo'd, e-lock, chipped teeth :(. This is the second front failure I've had since regearing. The first incident I can take some/all of the blame. Bound up, steep incline, reverse, poof! I get that. This time I just started hearing this rotational "clunk" a few weeks after a...

    Sputter/ Stall on Incline With Full Tank

    As the title says. Last two times I've been wheeling everything went great until I filled the tank all the way up. Then it wants to sputter and die on steep inclines. Ideas?

    Al's Liner Repair Job

    So I just got done with with my 2 tone liner job a couple weeks ago and it turned out great. Decided to go wheeling at Disney, OK for the Big Meat Run this past weekend and got into the rear quarter ever so slightly. It creased the sheet metal so I decided to try to "massage" it out from the...
