    Daily driving a 60?

    I've daily driven an FJ62 for 5 years or so now and things that have improved my MPG have been replacing the old worn out O2 sensors and rebuilding the blown out rear diff. One item that might get overlooked for a DD cruiser in terms of MPG gains is sticking with factory tires sizes, IIRC it's a...

    Window channel felt.

    Ah weird, I’ve usually had decent service with them. Are there any other pick and pull type sites for 60 series parts?

    FJ62/3FE Potential O2 Sensor Failure

    Got the truck back from the muffler shop, turns out we only needed to cut out the old bungs and weld in new pipe. It’s not winning any show awards, but the truck is more steady under power now. Will update if the road-trip CEL returns.

    New Member - Just Getting Started w/ '88 FJ62

    When I picked up my FJ62, it needed brakes and tires. I was sliding through intersections since the tires were cheapo and dried out. Don't skimp on tire quality when diagnosing poor stopping performance. I'd also skip out on mud terrains and shoot for a good A/T like Goodyear/BFG. I'm running...

    FJ62/3FE Potential O2 Sensor Failure

    Hmm, yeah this is gonna need to get cut out at the cat and new downpipes installed. I don’t think I can get my angle grinder to the bolts at the cats without damaging the surrounding area.

    FJ62/3FE Potential O2 Sensor Failure

    This is the state of the lower O2 sensor attachment point, had it soaking for a few days in PB Blaster. Not much to grab onto, going to try a wrench and maybe a bolt extractor. These down pipes may be beyond saving.

    FJ62/3FE Potential O2 Sensor Failure

    Looks like they have the sensors and the gaskets, but not the nut. May need to source those from the local hardware store.

    FJ62/3FE Potential O2 Sensor Failure

    Got the bolts soaking in PB blaster and was talking with a friend and he recommended some heat: https://www.lowes.com/pd/Lincoln-Electric-Port-A-Torch-Kit/1000119507 Thinking ahead, I can reach the lower O2 sensor nuts no problem, but the upper one that has the heat shield seems tricky. I can...

    FJ62/3FE Potential O2 Sensor Failure

    Yeah for sure, I can’t verify if these are original or not but they do seem due to be replaced anyway. I’m not sure if the Denso units from Advance Auto are a direct fit, I think I was reading on here the wires are too short.

    FJ62/3FE Potential O2 Sensor Failure

    After taking a look at the O2 sensors, I’m not wondering if it would be better to replace the down pipe as well. The unshielded one looks fused to the metal via rust.

    What did you do with your 60 this weekend?

    What's the benefit of running a high zinc racing oil in a low revving engine like the 2F? I've thought about looking for a higher zinc oil over my regular Shell Rotella 10w-30.

    Thoughts on these 60 interior Panels??

    That would be awesome! I'm seriously considering getting these for my FJ62.

    Thoughts on these 60 interior Panels??

    I wonder if you could ID the coating on that rear seat carpet rail and use that as the FJ62 brown?

    Thoughts on these 60 interior Panels??

    Looking at the door cards themselves: J60 Door Panel Set | orikawa - https://www.orikawa.net/product-page/door-panel-set They're only for the FJ60 doors with manual window cranks, not sure if they'd do a customization for FJ62 automatic window controls.
