    Halo Lights - Turn Signal vs Hazard Light

    I'm putting back together a wrecked FJ80, and the previous owners had cut the factory headlight assembly to run aftermarket Halo's similar to the picture below. It appears they have wired the 3 LED running lights (orange arrow), the 2 Halo's (yellow arrow), and the side marker (green arrow) all...

    Steering Box Fitting Size?

    I'm trying to figure out which of these fittings would be for the low pressure side of the Steering Box. I see there is non-O-Ring and O-Ring styles. I figured there was an easier way that buying all 5 and returning what I don't use. I have an OCD habbit of not taking stuff apart until I have...

    Things to do with front end apart?

    Hey all! I've never had a FZJ80 before, but I picked one up that was in a front end collision and I'm excited to get it back together. Over the next few weeks I'm sure I'll be posting "hey, what is supposed to go here" threads, so apologies in advance for that. I have a couple questions though...

    E Locker Actuator Rebuild Help

    Hey Guys, I've been wiring up my rear 80series locker in my FJ40. It never worked, even after logic testing the wiring completely. The background of the build is a junkyard 80 series rear with homebrew wiring from reading multiple threads on here. So I followed a couple threads and decided to...

    OE Rear E-Locker Wiring Help!

    Hey guys, I'm trying to wire up my rear 80 series Elocker. I've been reading some really helpful threads on here on how it operates and how to hardwire it using relays instead of the ECM. Which is great because I have NO factory wiring for this axle. The axle was from car-part.com Here's my...

    FJ40 Gas Tank Pickup Question

    Hey guys, I just yanked out the stock rotted out gas tank that's under the seat. On mine, the pickup for the gas is about 1/3 of the way up the side of the tank (drivers side of tank).

    Wiring Wizards

    Been working on trying to figure out why my tail-light fuse continuously shorts out. Finally got some progress tonight and got it so every light works without shorting out. My question is, are the turn signals on the fenders of my '67 supposed to not only function as a turn signal but also a...

    Link Question

    Got the hard part of the project done, cut off all the bracketry off the 80 rear axle, assemble all the brakes, slight stretch, and pull out some misc from under the FJ. My question is, what are the positives and negatives of an asymmetric triangulated 4 link setup for the rear? Where basically...

    Forced to Start my Buildup Early

    What's missing here? lol... My plan was to swap in an 80 or 60 series rear axle, and toss in my center section. I'm popping open the case tomorrow AM and see if the ARB is damaged. Then try to identify the gear ratio (in there when I bought the truck). Then pray that 80 series rear came...

    Taurus Fan

    The other day, I claimed dibs on a friend's taurus fan behind his shop. When I went to check it out it out, it was a 90's taurus v6, and there's were two fans side by side fans. But when I looked through the FAQ's, all the taurus fan write-ups just had a single fan. :confused: Anyone know if the...

    40 Rear Stretch

    I'm looking for pictures of 40's that have been trimmed for a strech. What makes me different, is since this truck is driven on the street quite a bit, I'd like a mild trim. Not a full comp cut. So I'd like to see some well trimmed rear tubs. I'd like to stretch the rear between 6-9 inches. I'm...

    FJ40 Rear Axle Research

    Starting the new year I'll be gathering parts for my mild spring build. The plans are to run coil overs front and rear and link it up. I'm running a chevy 350, a sm465, then adapted to a toy 3 spd case to keep the offset rear axle. So right now I'm looking for a axle swap that will give me...

    Proper Way to Flush Hydraulic Clutch?

    Hey guys, my rig has a SM465 tranny with a hydraulic clutch. I have two quick questions. The first is the master cylinder (on the firewall) leaks a little bit. For example, if it sits for a couple days I have to pump the clutch a few times to build up enough pressure to shift into gear...
