    Pop top 73?

    Custom made from the factory 73/74 top is my guess. A one-off. Cheers

    Good man, I know a few guys who slacked on that and paid for that decision in a very bad way. Cheers

    Builds PZJ70 build-refurbish!?

    Last bit to mention for now.... Like I say, it appears before settling or adding weight that the front gained 1.5” of natural lift from the conversion. This with stock height coils fitted. The rear I have fitted 2.5” OME leaves and it appears the trucks stance is near perfect. I don’t have...

    Couple more pics so you can see where the tires are in relation to the fender lip. Like I say, it’s right there, to me on the money. Axle isn’t perfectly centered yet but it is within a 1/2”. Cheers

    Alrighty, I might as well let the cat out of the bag on this because you all are going to notice it regardless. I hesitate to post this simply because I don’t want to hear a bunch of opinions or listen to the haters. Track width in front has widened substantially with the conversion. It is...

    Did you change out the plastic guides on the timing chain? Cheers

    KZJ78 pulling left, running out of ideas

    Look to steering box adjustment then. Tightened to much and it will pull to one side. Cheers

    KZJ78 pulling left, running out of ideas

    They are called trunnion bearings in the Cruiser world folks. :) Camber is not adjustable on a Cruiser with a SFA. It is built into the knuckles. Although you can get caster adjusting bearings for the trunnions, however caster is not camber. Yes you should do them but some of what people are...

    Westralia Springs

    FYI, Deaver will build you anything you want. I have had two custom sets of springs built by them, totally friggin awesome! They are a lot closer than Aus to you but they are not cheap. Cheers

    help deciding on which 70 series

    @gilmorneau I think there is one exception for the RHD to LHD conversion. That being the HZJ77, it was never sold in LHD so to convert is the only way to have that. Not such a bad job if you have a LHD donor but still a lot of work. Can’t be done without welding and paint. Cheers

    help deciding on which 70 series

    If it was me.... BJ71 in LHD, hard to find not rusty but they are in Europe. HZJ73 in LHD, same thing as the BJ just easier to find. LJ79 in LHD if I was after a Prado, 4-door and 3L engine. HZJ75 in LHD if I wanted a Troopy. HZJ75 in LHD if I wanted a pickup. If I didn't care about...

    @coldtaco I lived in Wyoming for 25yrs, plowed snow for over 10 of those years. I have ran many tires for this over the years, definitely sipped and studded is the best. I have even sipped my own tires, a set of Maxxis Creepies on an FJ60. Studded though to me means you need two sets of...

    1988 FJ70 heater question

    You will have to take the dash apart to the main wiring harness which is all of the dash to the firewall. You will have to cut two holes in the firewall. You will have to source all the parts to install a heater, close to $1000 from Toyota. This includes having to change your controls and...

    Main reason I went with these was size. 255/85R16 there really isn't much to pick from in this size. I honestly would have went with Duratracs, they fit the owners uses better but those are not available in a 255. So I had the M/T's sipped. Cheers

    Final assembly of front axle underway. I went with new OEM inner axle shafts, Terrain Tamer birfields, Terrain Tamer spindles and OEM backingplates plus hardware. Cheers

    Builds PZJ70 build-refurbish!?

    Had an old friend in town so didn’t work on the truck much the last 3-4 days. Rear axle is all ready to go down on it’s own weight. Working on final assembly of the front. Knuckle ball before clean up. After a little polishing. Cheers

    Advice/Thoughts of this FJ70 that I am interested in

    To get a good high steer kit in there will be another $1000+. And that doesn’t solve pinion angle or caster if there are issues with that. Cheers
