    Do you tow an Airstream?

    2021 Heritage L/C 200 and 2021 Basecamp 20 X w/weight distributing hitch works great. The very experienced Airstream dealer recommended WD hitch and said nothing else is needed.

    HE production numbers?

    From a corporate Toyota engineer friend of mine, no break down by color. And he thought the 2022 number was not for the US market, he speculated they went to Canada. These are model year numbers not calendar year. Heritage Volume: 2019: 291 2020: 1202 2021: 1326 2022: 22 Adding them up equals...

    front tow hooks

    *Thanks* for whoever pointed to the KAON (from Australia) site. GREAT tow hooks, with rounded edges, plus they have many other off roading "doodads", all great quality it appears. Solved several issues for my 200, again thanks.

    front tow hooks

    WHY ignore the owner's manual which says to ONLY use the factory hooks for basic short distance, flat towing????? As tbisascs said and even pointed to the owner's manual, above. Ignoring very good advice from a very good source (Toyota) when safety is an issue is not prudent at all, it's a very...

    Looking a body and paint shop in Coatesville, PA

    There are many "body shops" who are all kinds of good and bad, only install new parts, etc. There is an amazing shop in Exton that will do whatever you want, apply POR-15, etc. They retrofit old cars and trucks with new engines, suspensions and trans, etc. Bull Dog Rod & Custom Bulldog |...

    Need some input, possible new truck time.

    My wife has 265K on her GX470 and it's had a few sniggles to repair, air bag, set., but it is awesome for the reasons you say. It's built on the Prada platform from overseas. We've had it offroad one time and folks with lockers were amazed at what it was capable of. We've used an M101 trailer...

    Question about breaking a bead need advice or suggestions

    You need to break the bead so you can remove the (likely) dirt and rust out that is between the rim and the tire. I suggest you lay the tire on the ground, perhaps on a piece of plywood so the rim does not get scratched if it is on pavement, and put one end of a 2 by 6 board just against where...

    Thoughts on keeping a 33.5" spare with 34.5" tires- Bad idea?

    I run a different narrower WIDTH spare compared to my "on ground" tires, which likely results in my spare being a different diameter. I do that because it will fit in the location my spare goes, under the rear of my FJ60, and it gives me a better departure angle because it does not hang down as...

    Builds Keeping another on the road- My Blue 1986 FJ60 Build

    Love your 60, I have had the same one for many years and have faithfully kept it up, lots of add ons for off roading as well. 200,000 miles, pretty much rebuilt everything, perfect condition and I love it! Added Holley Sniper FI two years ago, it has NEVER run right. It is now at a fourth shop...

    74 PA PIG

    You are certifiably crazy to do this, it make no sense. BUT I applaud and salute you bringing this 55 back to being good. Wonderful. Future owners will greatly appreciate your work. Keep documentation for them as that truck will last a long time, due to your efforts. You are making "provenance"...

    frame blasting/painting

    I tried Fluid Film but found it stays sticky and accumulates/attracts dirt, particularly road dust, and it ends up being a mess. Powder coating is not a panacea as it costs the part in plastic and I found the plastic may crack and then rust creeps under the plastic. It is also hard to touch up...
