    Roll Call: 40's in the SF Bay Area

    Hollister hills mud is the worst. That clay sticks to everything and no matter how much you power wash it never really gets clean. I could be convinced to do a snow run if there is a decent sized group.

    Recommendations on how to remove a seized differential fill plug

    Two best options I have found are a chisel and a dremel to clean up around the plug and give it something for a socket to grab. Or if you have access to a welder, weld a new nut onto the plug and remove it that way.

    Half front door project

    I have half doors like you are describing on my rig. Right now I do not have any close up photos though. The way the doors work is that there are small tubes a few inches long welded into the top plate of the door that line up with the dowels coming down out of the Best Top window upper. The...

    Tires - selection is thin OME 2.5" Lift

    Stock wheels and a set of 33x10.5 bfg AT's. Like a few have said you may need to trim the lip on the rear fenders. That being said I run 31x9.5 super swampers on stock rims, no lift. I cruised around Moab just fine last summer and run a few fun trails here in Ca as well. Plus they look cool.

    I broke it... need some help fixin'

    Like many here have said you may as well upgrade to later model knuckles and disk brakes. It will give you a stronger birfield and disks. 1973Guppies review was great for me, I followed it step by step in my grandparents garage and had my knuckles, birfs, and disks updated and new seals and...

    Yeah, the later model rims have spot welded tabs for the hubcap clips. The earlier drum rims are riveted to hold on the tabs. Let me find some pictures. The first is a 74 rim, off of mine. Note the rivets on the tabs. cant seem to find one of my new rims from a 78.

    74 was drums all around, the rivets on the wheels will hit the caliper unless you use spacers. You can wait and find a set of disc wheels, get some spacers to run them, or grind the caliper to clearance them. That being said, getting a disc set is the easiest to do and requires no mods to your...

    Installed a FC Fabrications removable Lincoln Locker in the rear end. Pulled the soft top and doors and wheeled the crap out of it at the FJ 45 run with Georg and the boys.

    Disc conversion "74 FJ40

    The differences are really minor, more parts difference, the procedure is the main thing to follow. Really intuitive once you start to take things apart. When I did mine, Georg had me tear down the fj60 axle so I would know how to put the parts onto the 40 axle. Just make sure to label things...

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    Changed the oil, replaced some fuses and rainX'd the windshield. Went to Hollister to visit friends and did some 4wheeling at hollister hills, pulled out some very stuck kids in a mini truck. They were stuck for over 3 hours before I got there. Then replaced my battery after it was stolen from...
