    Back in a GX!

    Hey guys. Just picked up a 19 in Silver with Sepia and love it! I purchased a new 200 last year and we ended up selling our 12 GX. Mistake! I really didn't like the way the 200 drove, especially the way the transmission shifted between the 1 2 up shift and 2 1 downshift. Just felt like it...

    California Backcountry map book

    Not sure if this is an appropriate forum for this but I picked up a really nice map book a few months ago and the cover sports an LX450! Anyone familiar with the writer? The book seems well written and great for exploring routes and ideas.

    Trade in my Heritage for a new Bronco?

    I got an up close view of the new full-size Bronco on Monday. I gotta say it didn't WOW me like I thought it would. Now granted, this wasn't the Sasquatch package but I don't think I'll be letting my Heritage go for one of them. I'm also not a fan of the 2.7 Ecoboost engine. It's touted as a...

    I have a transmission that I picked up from a guy in Santa Fe that I was going to use in my 88 FJ but ended up selling the truck before I installed it.

    Towing with the 8 speed transmission question

    Hello everyone. Those of you that tow a small trailer with your cruiser, what gear do you leave it in? Do you just leave it in Drive or do you put the transmission in manual mode and select a gear? I kept the transmission in 6th gear and that seemed to be fine running 60 to 65 on the highway.

    Hey guys. I have ordered new factory front and rear driveshafts and was wondering if there was any special install instructions? The FSM doesnt mention anything about new replacements. Do they come greased from the factory? Anyone else replace theirs with new?
