Good looking truck, drives great.
no mods. been a daily driver.
Love the vehicle, just can't afford the upkeep anymore. Great truck for someone handy with a wrench.
leaks oil from engine, do not know where from specifically
Front end clicks on...
Burning rubber smell strong for a few mins then gone. Has come back as very faint smell a couple of times. AC compressor going out? Belts are all new. How can I check if the AC belt is the culprit? I have read about the emergency brake return seizing up, but I doubt that would come through...
Driving around today a strong burning smell suddenly came through the vents with the AC on, it lessened after about 45 seconds and is faint from the outside of the truck but no longer comes from the vents.
Edit: The temp guage read normal dead center.
It's a minnesota car so I'm sure there is rust, but for $6000 and lockers, you could have alot of fun with it before it fell apart!!

Looking for transport for a rear tire carrier from the Alberquerque area to the NE. I live in CT, but anywhere within an hour or so would be great.

This issue suddenly popped up. Turned the truck off and heard a clicking noise, the dash lights came on and the parking markers on the front corners were on as well. Played with the key in the ignition and it blinked a bit and then shut off. Next time, however, I couldnt get them to shut off...
Thinking about this bumper from TJM:
Slee - Toyota 80 Series Land Cruiser - TJM T17 Front Bumper
I see in the members front bumper thread that a couple of you use this bumper. Any pro/con arguments out there on this item?
My usage will be stock height runs. I am planning on sliders...
How difficult is it to replace the Rear lateral control rod with minimal tools, etc. I see in the FSM there are some special tools required. Would I be better off having a mechanic do this for me? Anyone have a quick price quote on the parts? Just a guestimate will do. The wrench is talking...
97 LX and I live in the NE. My heater doesn't blow hot air for quite a while and my water temp gague never gets more than an 8th of an inch above the bottom line. Seems like an engine like this should heat up fairly fast and blow hot air quickly. Do I need to adjust something or...
My symptoms have evolved/settled into the following:
The door open light on the dash is lit all the time even when truck is parked and locked with no key in ignition.
The rear passenger side door entry light is on all the time as well.
The dome light over the 2nd row seats is always on...

keyfob won't work to lock/unlock doors sometimes
electric locks will open all door locks when driving sometimes
the green circle light around the ignition...
