    For Sale  Rolling chassis, 2H + H55F (5-speed) + 3" lift springs + parts in Gainesville, FL

    This is Sheila/Tofudebeest's powertrain, and an FJ62's frame, axles, and a pile of assorted 60-series parts. The entire body is gone. I have doors and electronics, and whatnot, just ask... Of note, the 5-speed has maybe 15,000 miles on it, and operates flawlessly. Best upgrade I ever...

    Back in the saddle

    Picked up my new (to me) Croosah. 103,898 on the clock when I inspected it for the first time in person yesterday. SHINY! The P.O. (one-owner) was anal-retentive and the truck's interior is ridiculously clean. The strangest thing, however, is that it was purchased new as a 1988 Freeborn...

    Wanted  60-series, excellent body, the rest does not matter.

    It's like I am looking for a one-night stand... Rockin' body is essential, the brains (powertrain) is pretty much irrelevant. So, if you have a clean 60 or 62, ZERO body rust (frame doesn't matter), and are willing to part with it, I'm game to strike up a deal. If it is a respray, I will...

    Wanted  Fj62 0r fj80

    Looking for either a VERY clean 60, 62 or 80 (3FE) to put my 2H + H55F into. Paint is not as important, but MUST be original, no resprays. I am looking for 100% zero rust. If a 60 or 62, I'd just do a body swap. So, the body must be damn near perfect. No major dents. Motor and transmission...

    Questions for you 80 guys...

    If I go with a 3FE 80 (1991-1992, I suppose, possibly early 93? as well), to swap over my 2H/H55F, I am going to need some bits... This is a big if, and some of these questions (and more) will need to be answered before I decide. Assuming I go the 80 route... 1) In the States in an 80 with...

    Aftermarket horns

    If I go new (as opposed to u-pull shopping), I am pretty cure I will go with either Hella or Mitsuba. The Mitsuba Alpha II seem to be unobtanium right now, so that Leaves the Hella units. So, I am interest to know who has compared the 118 db Hella Supertones to the 110 db Hella Twin Trumpets...

    Window Tint

    3M, Llumar, SunTek, Solarguard... I want to spend $200 or less, and I want glare and heat protection more than looks. Not terribly concerned about it being legal, but I do not want it so dark that it is obviously illegal. In Florida, it is 25% for reflectivity and 25% light transmittance on...

    Fuel level woes

    Background: 2H into an FJ62. Nothing special. 62 harness. A mix of gauges. I apparently fried either my fuel sending unit, gauge or both when I accidentally plugged in my sender to the wrong plug in the harness (driver's side rear, located in the cargo panel) a while back because the...

    My next electrical gremlin

    I rolled the driver's window down (well, not "rolled" but used the switch), and it will not go back up. All other windows work normally (sluggish, but otherwise normal). When I hit the switch to have the driver's window go down (and it is already all the way down) my volt meter in the dash...

    Glow wiring issue

    I am hoping a wiring guru will see this... Quick background: 2H in a FJ62, glow wired to the defunct EFI circuit, glow is operated by using a spare defrost switch, timer light is from a HJ61. This has operated with no issue for a long while... Two nights ago, I climb in, flick the glow...

    Who has the most FULLY loaded HJ61?

    This post:IH8MUD.com - View Single Post - I hit 120k ... any other low mile rigs was the first NATO-spec HJ61 I have ever heard of, let alone seen. The 24v is the tip off. The "62" style dash and the turbo indicator eliminate any doubt that it is an HJ61. And this got me thinking... I have...

    Did I fry my fuel level sender?

    I unplugged everything in my driver's rear panel so I could install a set of 80 shoulder belts (which works nicely, by the way...pics later), because cutting is involved and my old panel had a hole in it for the harness to run through. When I reconnected everything, my tail lights were out...

    rear shoulder belts in an '88 62, different question...

    I nabbed some rear (not third row) shoulder belts from a 1991 FJ80 in a U-pull. The holes in my '88 62's C pillars are threaded, and the 80 belts thread right in, no problem. I have installed both and had to cut out a fair bit of sheet metal to accommodate the retractors, but it came out nice...

    Radiator "muff" or shade.

    I'm looking for the fgactory roll-up shade that covers your radiator in cold weather to help warm the truck up faster. They're not exactly unobtanium, but are rare in good condition. I know they were equipped on *some* Canadian issued BJ60s, but not sure if they were put into HJ60s or...
