    more break power on a PZJ75

    I pulled a booster off a diesel townace truck (I think it was a '96 or '97) to replace mine when it went. I didn't research if it was better but it was a direct bolt in with no modifications. Braking was definitely stronger than before when the og booster wasn't leaking, but this doesn't...

    Where to buy suspension seat bases

    Yes, that is real and required a lot of tweaking for me before I got it right. Ie it is not set to my body weight, but for a slightly heavier person. I find my position stays more level while cornering and a lot of dampening to my spine on bumps - helps mostly on really long off road trips...

    Where to buy suspension seat bases

    Post a wanted ad in the diesel/Jdm section of classifieds. I got a pristine, complete set for $500 only a couple days after posting. The conversion is extremely easy if you get the seats with the bases. I did it on a bj and it made a tremendous difference in all driving conditions. If you find a...

    1HZ conversion for 3B BJ70

    Yes, great video. Thanks for that. Seeing that an FTE conversion was that easy gives me a lot more confidence about the 1HZ

    1HZ conversion for 3B BJ70

    Thanks again. And I was just kidding about the poll. But you're right, the transmission situation should really just be a money thing. The throttle linkage picture you posted looks interesting. Mine has something very similar going on, it comes out of the firewall and loops all the way around...

    1HZ conversion for 3B BJ70

    Thanks for all the information, really helpful. I'll be taking many of your notes down into my planning. Regarding your conversion, were you putting an engine from a RHD into a LHD or vice versa? Mine is LHD and I haven't considered any issues that might exist if I use one from a RHD. I just...

    1HZ conversion for 3B BJ70

    1989 BJ70LV-KR (Lhd, 3B2, H55F) I've been considering this swap for a long time and have finally started reaching out to some members on here that sell 1HZs. My requirement is to get everything necessary to complete this swap in one go and understand everything that needs to be done before...

    33s on stock height

    I fit 33" on my BJ70 without any lift or axle manipulation and the stance looks perfect. Mine are only 10.5" wide though and I imagine going wider would require a rim with a different offset or spacers to be added. In the back there is only about an inch between the inside sidewall and the side...

    Is this anyone’s rig?

    Thanks a bunch. It's actually home made and still kind of a work in progress. Glad you like it.

    Is this anyone’s rig?

    I see, weird how LA seems small when you own a land cruiser. The first one looks very new and immaculate, has the ca plates. The build looks purposeful and very high quality. My mind was blown when I first pulled onto this street, 3 70 series on the same block in LA while saltycoconuts' 74 was...

    oh no, I've been caught. thanks for the compliments. I live in south la on the edge of Inglewood (and Arizona). was just watching the basketball game at the scarlet lady saloon. Speaking of, does anyone know who these troopies belong to? I've seen them parked outside my friends apartment in...

    Replace BJ75 motor mounts?

    Forgot to mention, you need to detach the fan shroud or completely remove it.

    Replace BJ75 motor mounts?

    @FRQ You first want to get the front up on jack stands. Wheels need to be off the ground so the suspension it at full travel. Otherwise the truck will move with the engine when you try to lift it. I cracked the bolts a bit on the transmission cross member just so there was no tension there. Not...

    Replace BJ75 motor mounts?

    Hey, I had that issue on my swb with 3b. Changing the motor mounts was easy but didn’t do much. I then replaced all the body mounts with polyurethane ones from 4crawler and that fixed it right up, among a lot of other engine/road related vibration. Both jobs are fairly easy and worth doing...

    Is there a trick to folding the back seat?

    The video didn’t upload. Needles to say, it’s very easy to fold the seat now

    Is there a trick to folding the back seat?

    That’s what I did, I think they can take a lot without getting damaged. I attached some photos that might be helpful, pictures of how the lever is secured. The joint near the front is where my clip was missing and there was a lot of play, I put a random c clip that fit on there. The video shows...

    Is there a trick to folding the back seat?

    Mine was very similar when I first got it. I had to do it from the front and reach over the back to pull the loop, using my body weight to make it fold. Once down I sprayed gun cleaner into the hinges, a couple dabs of grease, and moved it up and down till the action smoothed out. Now I can pull...
