    62 Long Range Fuel Tank Pump Options

    I'm finally gonna bite the bullet and fork out for a bigger fuel tank now that I now have reason to suspect my 15 year old fuel pump is on its last leg anyways.

    4" Old Man Emu Heavy Lift Driveline Angles

    I have had this lift with the shackle reversal for 15 years without any issues. The u-joints have remained sound. The castor shims are installed as prescribed.

    Wanted  FJ 62 drivers door wiring wiring harness

    Please dont ask what they were thinking before I rescued this rig but it ain't pretty. Whoever got into the drivers door wiring apparently replacing the master switch with masking tape probably meant well but thank goodness they didn't go any further. I just got a new OEM master switch and kinda...

    Bottle Jack In Factory Location On 62?

    I am running out of jack with the OEM corkscrew so I am looking for a reliable snug fit for a larger aftermarket bottle jack in the factory location next to the rear window bottle behind the cargo panel. My six ton was close but slightly too small for the factory mounting hardware and I don't...

    How Do You Mount Your Traction Boards?

    I can't be the only one who opted not to pay Bucko Bucks for top of the line something I need to peel out on to get unstuck. I called ARB in Seattle and said what is your warranty on those spendy Tredds and they said don't melt them and spin your tires and we will warranty them. I'm like HUH...

    Is MAF's Shackle Reversal 4" Heavy Load Kit That Much Of An Improvement? YES!!!

    I am in no way affiliated with MAF and am posting this because I began posting on another members thread on the OME suspension upgrades but didn't want to unfairly hog his blog! So I'm here to tell you after racing motocross since 1975 (my first race bike was a 1975 Yamaha YZ 80) and four...

    FJ 62- Rebuild Factory Radiator Or Buy Lifetime Warranty Aftermarket Plastic Tanked One?

    So ten years ago I opted to replace my original radiator with an aluminum one from Performance Radiator which are distributed here locally and they were under two hundred bucks with a five year warranty at the time. So I got ten years out of it and it just split the upper seam and they no longer...

    I'm not sure if these switches are door specific or not. Switch Doctor only sells the brown which makes zero sense to me.

    Show Me Your Aftermarket Console And Rear Heater Combo In Your 62

    I'm getting tired of the factory console rattling around but not sure if an aftermarket console would accomodate my rear heater which I don't want to part with. If anyone has made a mod incorporating the heater into either a Tuffy or Smittybilt I would sure like to see it. Thanks

    Dealer Says Load Test On 62 OK?

    I asked my local dealer to do a load test on my charging system due to an intermittent dying problem at startup with AC on and watching the factory voltage gauge nosedive when operating my struggling power windows- 13.92 with no load vs 12.70 with load. That seems like a pretty extreme...
