    This is starting to feel like I'm expecting a baby. The '83 FJ60 has been down at Land Cruiser Restoration for a couple months. Picked this rig up a couple years ago from previous owner in Kansas City area who had sat on this for about 12 years in his garage with intentions of bringing it back...

    Excessive negative caster after OME Medium lift

    Read through a ton of caster posts but couldn't find a similar experience. Just had an OME Medium Lift kit installed on a '97 LX450. Included the ARB yellow caster bushings. First impressions were positive though I did notice a little twitchy behavior in the steering as well as a drone or a...

    Where to order TJM 2" lift kit for LX450?

    After researching the multitudes of suspension threads here, came to the conclusion a TMJ 2" lift kit (springs, shocks, front stabilizer and caster bushing) would fit the bill. Can't seem to locate a vendor who sells the entire kit? Will call the usual suspects that support us here at Mud but...

    Suggested alternator replacement FJ60

    Searched. Couldn't find that magic post that says what is the best FJ60 alternator 100% plug and play option that could also be considered an appreciable upgrade. Primary motive is to have a back up alternator which would be the original. Brighter interior and head lights a plus. Prefer to...

    What stated out simply replacing vacuum tubing quickly morphed into a desmog project. To rule out any leak from the manifold, decided to replace gasket. Truck/engine has 134k miles. Below are photos of the manifold. On the closeup pic of the exhaust manifold, there seems to be pitting and/or...

    Best replacement options for PCV and brake booster hose

    I need to replace my PCV hose following despmog because it is not long enough to reach from the valve to the connector on the MFE block off plate. Brake booster hose has a crack at one end and should be replaced as well. Is basic heater hose acceptable for both applications? Any better...

    Remove back air rail union

    I have read every thread I can find regarding removal of the air rail. Blasted each rail union with PB for several days. The top bolt on the union for the first 5 easily turn. Getting a 17mm wrench on the back firewall union has been the challenge. Really want to get this off without...

    Next steps to address bad idle / surging power

    Recently picked up a completely stock 1983 FJ60 with 134k original miles. This was a Dallas truck for most of the service life and had been mostly in storage here in KC for the last 10 years. Had a heck of a time driving the rig home. Would not hold an idle and stalled at every intersection...
