    Are these original seat frames in my '71? Where are these aftermarket seats from?

    I recently bought a '71 FJ40. Can anyone tell me where the seats came from? As I understand it, the original configuration was the split bucket setup (?). Also, are the seat frames original to the car? The fuel tank is aftermarket plastic. I'd also like a center console but I'm not sure what...

    Gauge cluster (Part # 83100-60180) compatibility w/ my '71 FJ40

    I just bought a new gauge cluster on eBay for my '71 FJ40. My original cluster is pretty worn out (lots of fading/scratching along with a non-working odometer) . The speedometer on the one I just bought reads in km/h but that doesn't bother me. I have been researching how to install it and have...

    Attaching synthetic rope to Warn 8274 winch

    Everyone, I bought a 95' 1/2 synthetic rope for my Warn 8274 winch. It's too thick to fit through the hole on the winch spool to secure it. is there a way to safely attach the rope with having to use the hole on the spool? The end of the rope has a nice protective covering for the first section...

    Looking for Warn Part # 9220

    Hey everyone. I've been looking everywhere for the pawl brake cap for my Warn winch (part 9220 and #17 in the pic). I've found the entire pawl brake assembly (part 7605) but only need the cap. I've also contacted Warn and they don't offer the cap separately. Thanks for your help!

    Warn 8074 Restoration

    I'm missing the protective cap that goes on top of the brake ratchet (Warn part # 9220). Can't seem to find it after an internet search. Does anyone know where I can fond one?

    Warn 8074 Restoration

    Restoration is coming along. I had to buy another pinion and splined cam which will be arriving at the end of the week. Here's a pic of the winch parts on my bench before reassembly. Does anyone have a favorite/recommended lube and gear oil? This is my first winch resto.

    Warn Date Codes on 8074 or 8274 winches

    Here's my 8074 without any Jeep badging. Thoughts? Was it originally on a Jeep, just without the badging?

    Warn 8074 Restoration

    Hey everyone. I just bought a '71 FJ40 that came with a Warn 8074 winch. I've decided to restore the winch but I've hit a snag pretty early that I'm hoping someone can help me with. I've removed the circlip holding the brake assembly to the shaft but the assembly will not come off! I've tried...

    '71 FJ40 with a '74 engine...

    Thanks for the info. I'll look for those hex head plugs. Why would someone have sealed off the port for the PCV valve? Have you ever seen that before?

    '71 FJ40 with a '74 engine...

    I just bought this FJ40. The previous owner swapped out the original engine for one from a '74. It runs great (after I adjusted the crazy high idle) but there's a few things I'm curious about. I'm new to these engines so I'd appreciate your help. What the heck are those plugs on the block...

    '71 Hood Ornament?

    Yeah, Redgrrr, it's a weird use of Saginaw PS. I've bought all the parts to move the gearbox to the correct inner side of the frame. Let me know if you'd like to meet for a quick coffee while you're in Seattle.

    '71 Hood Ornament?

    Guys and gals, I just bought an FJ40 from Canada (I live in Seattle) and drove it back to the States. The previous owner said it was a '72 but when I wiped off the VIN plate I found that it is a '71! I'm a bit disappointed because i was born in '72 and wanted a truck from the same year. But I...
