    New front seat advice needed

    I got a Scheel-Mann and for a while I wasnt really happy. Then I got some seat jackers that change the angle and it much better. They took sometime to get used as they got more broken in.

    Coolant leak when cold

    It is a 96. So technically a FZJ80. The coolant in my radiator is reddish more like rust to be honest. I think some one mixed red and green. I'd say I'm due for a flush.

    Coolant leak when cold

    The headgasket was done by the PO like 4k ago so most look good. I'm still trying to figure out the origin, but ill start by just tightening some hose clamps and go from there.

    Coolant leak when cold

    I was a Rover guy too. Sold my 110 last year. I havent found an RN style set up. Wits End has a lot to offer, I have been using parts.toyota.com to get part numbers and diagrams and then search the web there.

    Coolant leak when cold

    Today when I start up the 80, I let it run for a little bit since it was cold. About 30 degrees. I came out about 10 mins later and there was a small puddle of coolant (or at least I assume it is coolant) under the car. It is brownish red. It was on the driver's side, kind of under the battery...

    Which lugs nuts ?

    Hey apologies for the JV level question but my 96 has security lug nuts for every lug nut. I wanted to swap them out to standard-issue so I bought some M12-1.50 Thread 13/16 with the washer which are supposed to fit a '96 rim. When I installed them the washer doesn't seem to seat on the rim. Any...

    Post Your Blackstone Report

    So I got my second Blackstone report and I am trying to make sense of it. When I bought the truck the previous owner said he had just changed the headgasket but it looks like he skimped and didnt change the oil afterward. I'm hoping the presence of coolant is maybe left over from when the head...

    Help interpreting Blackstone analysis

    I decided to get an analysis on my new to me FZJ80. I was wondering if someone could help me interpret the results. The most troubling is the presence of coolant in the oil. The previous owner had just completed a head gasket some I'm hoping that maybe some of the oil is just residual or maybe...

    Weird coolant leak

    Interesting note. I chanced the PCV and I probably leaned on it pretty good.

    Weird coolant leak

    I’m still working through baselining my 80, but today I noticed a leak by the battery box. All the hoses look good. I was hoping it might be power steering but I don’t think I’m that lucky. I just swap out the radiator cap to the a new one from Wits End. I start the truck up and I noticed a...

    Hose melting hood insulation

    I just ordered the hoses for the heater valve. I plan on starting there. Eventually, I'd like to use flexible hose for the rear heater and replace some of the non oem hose with oem.

    Baselining my new to me 96 FZJ80 aka Thundercloud

    Hello - I am new to the Land Cruiser world. I just picked up a 96 FZJ80 3x locked with 189k. I purchased it from someone on the West coast and had it shipped to Boston. It is a little rougher condition than I had hoped, but it will get there.... slowly. The previous owner did the head gasket...

    Hose melting hood insulation

    Thanks for the heads up. I'd like to keep the rear heater setup for the back seat passengers. Is there anything else I should do to make sure it doesn't leak (besides replacing it)?

    Hose melting hood insulation

    Luckily the previous owner tackled that and the rear main seal. Hopefully, it was done well. The receipts seem to support that it was done correctly.
