    2004 Sequoia Leather Seat Cover (replacing velour)

    I've decided to replace the velour seats. It's just a DD/grocery getter and I plan to have it for a long time (only has 180k). I've found real leather full set for around $500 by Coverking, made to fit. Anyone have experience with these? Prefer to spend my money with a member or vendor here...

    Probably gonna make you an offer in short order, just want to double check that we have an exact fit. Mine was manufactured in November 1987, just researching to make sure it’s the F version, not the A440. I’m not a mechanic so possibly a dumb inquiry ha.

    Best Oil for *Performance* '85 FJ60

    went with dino rotella 15w-40, as it's the overwhelming choice on this site, and a k&n filter. instead of a flush product, gonna repeat this oil change in 500-1000 miles. i noticed a smoother engine immediately. thanks for all the advice 😎

    ECU needs to be replaced in 88 FJ62. Part # "89961-60020". How much variation am I allowed on those last 5 digits? I'm currently operating under the assumption that (based on a previous thread) either 60020 or 60021 will work. Found a 60021 for $100 less, but before I get it, looking for...

    transmission won't go into reverse: alternatives to rebuild/replace?

    update: added ATF while hot, tried again, no luck. got underneath and had my son shift the gears. saw nothing that appeared to be broken. if there's something underneath to remove and look at, by all means, let me know. thanks.
