I think that is a great idea. I would love to have a pop-top on my cruiser, something like http://www.sportsmobile.com/ultimate.html .
It would take some ingenuity, and you would have to frame around the hole in the roof correctly (not too flimsy, not too heavy).
It sounds like a cool...
I can't diagnose your tranny, but I can offer some advice.
Do a search, and you can find the name of the place that sells the bulletproof FJ62 trannies. Search using the keywords "Rodney", "transmission", and "Australia" (yes they are in Australia). His website has a lot of useful...
I have been having starter problems for a month now. It would just click, and it would take a few tries to get it to turn. It seemed better when it was warm, and it seemed to work better if I turned the key with snappy motion.
Just now, I got it to turn but then it kept on cranking even...
I have started manually shifting the auto in my FJ62 sometimes. If I hold each gear so that I rev to 3K-3.5K, the acceleration is so much better than mushing along with the auto tranny shifting at 2K. It is like having a completely different vehicle.
I now have no doubt that an H55 would...
You can buy the necessary parts at cruiserparts.net.
Exiled (on this board) did it, so I would look at his post to see what parts he used
I will be doing it too, probably, eventually.
Those pics are with 33" tires. How could you do that with 35" (or larger) tires? The tire won't fit into the wheel well, right?
My point is not that the springs won't flex, but how can you allow them to flex much with rubbing/cutting/shredding on the body?
I have never seen a picture of a SOA really flexed up.
If you get a SOA, then you have plenty of lift to fit big tires, but does that mean that you have to use bump stops to keep the tires from flexing up into the wheel wells? What am I missing?
Please straighten me out here folks.
I was told that power windows and locks were an option for the 1988 model year, however, most came with the option.
My power windows and locks are very convenient, but I am swapping them out as part of my build-up, just to make the rig more spartan.
Welcome to the group. That's a great looking rig.
Don't be put off by anyone saying that you paid a lot of money for it.
It is darn hard to find just the right rig the way you want it, and it is worth it to pay for the right one it comes along.
You now have a great rig with lots of...
Here in California, the catalytic converter is considered part of the chassis. If I swap in a Chevy V8, which normally goes through one catalytic converter, do I have to still use two catalytic converters since my FJ62 has two catalytic converters?
