    Going from an fj80 to possibly a kzj78

    Maybe one of my last post in the 70 series section! but I wanted to share the Land cruiser I purchased. Its a 1964 fj40. @Shyrock graciously sold it to me. I am over the moon with it. I have not made it home yet but here are some photos. The first photo is my father and I. He has always been...

    Going from an fj80 to possibly a kzj78

    I am no longer a 70 series owner. I sold it this past weekend. While I loved this kzj78 it was not quite the vintage land cruiser I was after. So my fiancé urged me to sell the kzj78. Luckily we have 2 other vehicles so we will be fine. Originally I wanted to trade my land cruiser for another...

    WDYD What did you do on your 70 series today?

    We had a good swell this past weekend. I surfed for 4 or 5 hours. but seems like at home the tacoma is a popular 4x4 to use at the beach. Luckily some Buddys of mine with Pajero and a Isuzu trooper showed up as well.

    It looked like some sort of Toyota advertisement on the beach yesterday with all of us that surf. Tacomas are very popular here.

    I found some orange front turn signals that look more factory than the clear ones. Its my under standing that factory OEM is no longer available. I bought on eBay from Latvia a week and a half ago I think and they just got here. The listing said they are for a Rj77. I was not entirely sure...

    I finally got my parts to finish the snorkel install. They were stuck in Tennessee for 5 days. I ended up modifying a few parts to make it work. The inner fender duct from a vdj79 that goes to the airbox was slightly too long for the kzj78. its soo close to fitting its absurd. to make things...

    HZJ77 rear light bar removal

    I need to check if mine works haha. I hate messing with the head liners. I replaced the hatch on my fj80 and had to pull the headliner down slightly in the back to get the wiring through. it was very difficult to put back.

    Events/Trails Annual Southeast 70 Series Meet and Greet, September 22-25 2022

    I have been thinking about trading my kzj78 for an fj40 or fj55 but if I still have it next year I am totally going to bring mine to this! Seems awesome! Wish my work schedule would have allowed me to go this year. The life of a teacher... Love seeing all these pictures from the event though!

    @svsisu I don't know how the surf was up There but we had some epic waves here this past Friday and Saturday.

    Going from an fj80 to possibly a kzj78

    So I got bored this weekend and installed this snorkel to about 95%. Right now its a funnel into my fender side haha. I still need to istall some of the duct work and the precleaner top part. (both of witch are still being shipped.) The only thing I don't like is that it left more of a panel...

    My package from partsourq seems to be back on its way to me. Just a shipping scare. Unfortunately this was the first time that shipping has taken longer than domestic shipping. So my snorkel install will be after work next week. Maybe Tuesday or Wednesday.

    The house was shaking here too. wild for sure. It looks like this morning the wind has seriously nocked back some of the surf. if the wind falls out this afternoon ill be able to get out there to catch some waves. Its much more manageable today than it was yesterday. Bad photo to show the surf...

    I hope it resolves itself. I was hoping to do some tinkering and wrenching this weekend but looks like that will not happen. I might not have time anyway. we have some epic waves coming in from this storm and I gotta surf when I can. I surfed some double over head surf after teaching...
