    Local Diesel Mechanics for BJ44?

    Hello there! We just bought an 81 BJ44 with about 100,000 miles on it. It's in excellent condition, but I am smelling fumes in the cab. Can anyone recommend a local diesel mechanic that can check out the exhaust? Thanks in advance! :)

    soft top / bimini / drive in rain better - buy or make

    Hey Johnny! I LOVE this color. Is this a Dune Beige 416 or some kind of olive? I am trying to decide on colors and love that Dune Beige, but am torn between that and some sort of light olive. Thanks!

    Thank you, Dave! If it's close-by, and available for you to view it, that would be so helpful. And anything you can relay back is truly appreciated. Where is the seller currently marketing it on (e.g. Craigslist or eBay, or other...or are they trying to sell it by word-of-mouth)? Thank you...

    75 FJ40 - Any red flags??

    Thanks! He says the mileage says 65,000, but is pretty sure it rolled over. The 40 is a few states over from me so I haven't seen it in person yet. Don't know compression numbers or if it's been rebuilt. The dash looks a little strange to the far left, and so does the passenger floorboard. I...

    Thanks so much for offering! They have it listed on eBay and the bidding closes tomorrow morning 10 am Colorado time and they are closed today. If it doesn't sell, I might take you up on your offer. I'll let you know and try to get the address in the meantime. Thanks a ton!

    Thanks so much Rayjon. I certainly don't want to make a foolish purchase. The weather is pristine here in Dallas and emotions are taking over! ;) But I will do my best to make a patient, wise and educated decision. I really appreciate all the help I've received here. You guys are great! God bless!

    Ha! I had to go back and look for that seatbelt strap. Too funny... sorta. Wow! As far as the wiper blade on the passenger side... I actually can see it in several pictures. Nonetheless, a little uneasy about the other things. Perhaps we can talk him way down in price now that you guys have...

    Does anyone know anything about this dealer? World Wide Vintage Autos

    Is this 40 worth the money? After looking at a few, I realize it's going to take about $10,000+ to get one in good condition (at least the one's I looked at) I'd rather buy one fully restored since I am not mechanically inclined. It's listed on eBay for $17,500- "fully restored"...but...with a...

    Oh no! Really? Nice. I was under the assumption it wasn't that expensive. I am learning. Well, I guess I will adjust. And if it's good for my arms, then that will save me some time in the gym! :)

    Ha! That is funny!! Aren't you suppose to share in a marriage? ;) Sounds like she caught the bug! I will most likely add power steering if the one I end up with doesn't have it. I think it may be too exhausting turning that thing in the blistering heat and especially while off-roading! I can see...

    Thanks, Taro! I appreciate that. I might just add power steering to it. We shall see how tired I get if I end up with it. :)

    I hear ya! It is kind of strange he doesn't have full coverage. He actually IS open to having a mechanic check it out, which is exactly what we are doing. The mechanic is going to his house. Thanks for the welcome! Hope to be in the open air soon! :)
