Hey Guys -
I've got a wind / bug deflector mounted on the hood of my LX450. It's got a crack in the plastic (luckily only goes 3/4 of the way down). [photos below]
Before I start glopping on JB Weld, wanted to check: Does anyone have a quick / preferred fix method for plastics like this in a...
Hey Guys - Just got this awesome LX450 back from Slee (pic below for fun). But would be exceptionally grateful for your help diagnosing a noise.
Driving it home the first time, everything's great, except there's a very, very faint high-pitched noise:
- comes on at higher RPM (above >3)
UPDATE: Decided to go ahead and get some of the work + fluids done at Slee. Will update listing when truck is available for sale.
- Factory Triple Locked
- Clean Title
- Interior in nice condition, except a separation in driver's seat cushion
- No cracks in dash
- No undercarriage frame...
Hi Friends -
Follow-on question: I've got a nice low-mileage LX450 at Slee right now getting some work baselining done. They say the rear main seal has a leak (supposedly common). It's a $1k repair -- $850 of labor removing the transmission to install a $60 gasket. Is this something worth...
Hi Friends -
I've got a nice low-mileage LX450 at Slee right now getting some work done. It's got an OME 2.5" lift (couple yrs old). Talking with the guys there, considering upgrading to the BP-51. Supposedly it's "incredible" but worried about it being (a) too soft and loosing that "truck"...
Hi Guys - having some trouble with MUD messaging.
Usually there's a button to "start conversation" with a fellow member, but now that's disappeared. I upgraded to a paid silver-star account hoping that would fix it, but it hasn't.
Any advice? Is there something I'm missing?
Quick update - ended up buying 2x '97 80's instead. A great deal came up on MUD, so went with that.
Hey Guys -- wanted to get some sage perspective.
Through a very special connection, I have the opportunity to potentially order a custom Land Cruiser. Recently I've...
Hey Guys - I've been on the hunt for a lifer vehicle. My dad's had a '94 FJ80 since I was a kid, and I'm looking for one of my own.
This is going to be my 1-vehicle. So wiling to prioritize quality > over price. Tried with a couple eBay sellers that turned out to be rusty duds. So now turning...
Hi Guys - was looking at a '94 FJ80 coming out of Michigan. Just got back pics from the mechanic doing the inspection.
Pros: exterior and interior looks clean as hell.
Cons: looks like some (1) rust on the under carriage, and.... there's some (2) white slime in the engine oil cap.
Hi Guys - I'm looking for a great mechanic near my place in the NYC Suburbs. (+/- 100 miles)
Getting a stock '94 FJ80 in a couple weeks. Looking for someone excellent and fairly-priced to install an OME lift, maybe rock guards, and a couple smaller mods. I considered doing it myself, but I'd...
Hi Guys -
Just got a super clean stock '94 FJ80. This is my first car I'm considering modifying for overlanding. Looking at the 2.5" OME lift + 285/75/16s BFG All-terrain KO2's -- seems like a solid combination that's highly recommended on other threads.
95 days of 100, this'll be a highway /...
