    Any idea on these bumpers?

    I was perusing TLC's website the other day and came across this 62 that had some some of the more unique bumpers I've seen in a while. Does anyone know if these are one-off's by TLC or are they from another source? I like that they are protective, but not cutting into the approach and departure...

    Pressure in cooling system

    The last few times I've driven the 60 I've noticed a wet spot under truck for several days after parking it. Under further inspection, it was leaking from the hose connecting to the heater valve. Once I tightened that, the leak moved to the t- stat neck. That's when I opened the radiator cap and...

    2f vs LS - A Character Discussion

    I know that the virtues of both powertrains have been discussed ad nauseum and I understand the pros and cons to both. What I was hoping to hear from people is how they feel that the character of the truck changed after going from the 2f to the LS? In particular, part of the fun of driving one...

    Bender HAMOM Investigation Thread

    There has been a lot of talk about doing a bender HAMOM lately. If we still have the bender, which I think we do, I'd be willing to work on setting up the event, but would need to get some ideas on some details before we can get started. I'm thinking it could be a late winter event, but we'd...

    Cargo Light Circuitry

    Does anyone have a picture of the rear cargo light (without cover) or an electrical diagram for it? I took mine out before the move, and now I can't find the thing. I am going to replace it with an aftermarket LED light, but want to make it work like a stock light (on with either the door or...

    Help upgrade the Bull

    I posted this question in my local chapter forum as well but wanted some feedback from some 60 owners with different backgrounds. For the general wheeling that I do, think southeast rock and minimal mud, do you think it is best to be armored, expo'ed, etc. to the hilt, weight be damned, or do...

    Help upgrade the Bull

    For the general wheeling that we do, do you think it is best to be armored, expo'ed, etc. to the hilt, weight be damned, or do you think appropriate mods for protection with an eye towards keeping the truck light would be the best approach? Drew is convinced that my 60 goes so well because it's...

    GSMTR 2011 Caravan Thread - Post up when you're heading up

    Thought it would be good for everyone to post up in here when you're leaving, where from, and see if you might find a fellow cruiser head to follow up. Plus, it gives support in the event of a break-down. I'm leaving Wed after noon from Simpsonville, going up 25 to I26 to I40... Any time...

    ROTM - Bull

    I grew up with Toyota's in my blood. My uncle used to race dirt track Celica's and specialized in Toyota repairs. I had a few 2WD mini's along the way, but never got into the 4WD thing, even though I grew up about an hour from Tellico. Fast forward 14 years, and I was autocrossing a miata...

    Anyone used RockAuto?

    I think that this is mostly off-topic, but it might be useful for everyone to know. Has anyone ever bought parts from Rockauto.com? I am getting ready to do a timing chain job in the DD Saturn, and their prices are a good bit lower than Advance or Autozone, and significantly lower than NAPA...

    Could Moab Close and keep Tellico Closed?

    Don't know how I haven't heard of this until today, but Congress is to vote on a bill TOMORROW (Oct 1) that could close Moab, Chimney Rock, and San Rafael Swell in Utah - roughly 9.4 million acres to the OHV community. If this bill is passed, I think it will provide the legal precedence for...
