    Question: 74’ FJ40. Replacing the clutch. At the step where I am bolting down the pressure plate. In my case it’s taking well beyond 14 foot pounds to turn torque wrench and plate is still not seated. Everything I’m reading says it’s easy to break these bolts so wondering what’s going on…? Any...

    FJ40 Dual USB Install

    Thought I’d share. Research said Blue Sea Systems makes good products. Removed original lighter, ground out hole to 1 1/8”. Used existing circuit with fuse. Had to find a ground bolt on firewall, which actually took the longest for entire install. Had to fit my big hand through hole for...

    Leveling a 74' FJ40

    Hello- Installed OME med/heavy complete suspension almost a year ago. Just now I'm noticing more sag in the right rear. I had heard that this was a thing, but on the left.... So, I'm assuming it's on the left for most because the spare changed sides 75' and on if I remember correctly...

    Seals n' Synthetics

    All- Moved on from rear diff leak by going to local dealer and buying a rear diff cover gasket... issue fixed, I hope. I have two questions: 1. Is there a consensus on whether synthetic fluids will regularly breach OE seals? 2. Is there a recognized OE drivetrain seal/gasket kit put together...

    Quick Question...

    All- Having leak issues with rear diff on 74' 40. Pretty sure the drain plug crush washer is shot. Plan is to go to NAPA with fill plug to size a washer/gasket. Do we know if the fix and drain plugs are the same diameter? Looking at other posts it will be more in shipping than for the cost...

    74' Rear Diff Fix

    All- Getting a significant howl out of the rear end now. I had to open up the diff to remove the half shafts as part of a 4 wheel disc conversion. In that process I had to adjust the diff center section to the left with those silver adjusting "cups" in order to bring in the passenger halfshaft...

    Rear Axle Housing Rotation

    All- Put an OME 2.5 inch Med/Heavy kit in my '74. Working on a 4-wheel disc conversion now and noticed the whole axle housing is rotated maybe 5-10 degrees. Is this an issue? Guess it would help drive shaft angle, but change suspension geometry. Should be as easy as loosening housing U-bolts...

    Mystery Holes

    I've owned this truck for a week now. Half the fun is poking around and learning the legend first hand. Need to do some research by VIN, but told that original owner was a merchant marine, contanerized the FJ, and rolled it out once he got to his ports of call. So to the question: Any ideas...

    Time for suspension; ICON, OME, SLEE, ARB, Bilstein....?

    Crew- I realize there are tons of threads on suspension, just hoping for some advice with my specific goals in mind... I've had the 09' 200 for over a year now and have been putting up with a little scrubbing of the new wheels/tire (32.4 in) combo. Already modified front mud flaps and sanded...
