7/28/19 - SOLD
After about a decade of owning and enjoying this rig, it's time to let it go. This is a dune beige 1976 FJ40 that has, to the best of my knowlege, always been a California vehicle.
Recently put a solid 2F in it that I sourced from Georg at Valley Hybrids. Runs well and gets...
Hey Fellow Mudders -
This is the first time I've tried to smog the vehicle since I put the used 2F in that I bought from Georg. It really runs nice!
Just took the 40 to the smog shop...fail.
The tech said that I need carb adjustments. He said that it is running lean at idle that might be...
This has been a long-running project...thought I was just about done, but lo and behold, not the case.
Back story: Being that my rig is a '76 and I live in Kalifornia, I still need to smog it. Last time I took it in to smog (a couple years ago), he just shook his head and sent me on my way...
Hey Guys and Gals -
My 40 has been badly neglected over the last couple years and now I find myself having to pass smog in order to register it in Kalifornia.
To start, I have a '76 with a '79 engine. It is set up with the dizzy/igniter from the '76 (vacuum retard) and just about all of the...

Well, I had an eventful day.....:rolleyes:
Replaced the fan clutch so, of course, pulled the radiator, switched out the clutch and put it all back. Pretty straight forward. Truck fired up afterward.....no problemo.
Then I loaded up the snowplow and put the chains on the front (8-12...

For those of you with hands in the shipping industry, I have a challenge that I'm trying to work through and I'm hoping someone here can help out.
DiamondRax has built a roof rack to go atop Chris Hanna's (the guy with the mohawk on A&E's "Shipping Wars") Freightliner SportChassis
I'm trying to get a DiamondRax roof rack (54" wide by 48" long) to Trapper50cal at Cruise Moab. I'm located in the Lake Arrowhead area of So Cal (92352).
The rack will quickly and easily mount to any 60/62 series or 80 series rain gutters, so it wouldn't take up any cargo space (but could...
I have 6 used heavy duty rain gutter clamps made by Groucho. They have some surface scratches, but are structurally fine.
I also have 6 used "Triple Dog" supports. These also have some marks from use, but are completely sound.
Additionally, I'll give you your choice of 6 of...

The idiot I sold it...
Well, we're just cleaning up the remnants of a pretty good storm here in the San Bernardino Mountains (Lake Arrowhead to be more exact). I've plowed each winter with an FJ40 for about 12-13 years now and this was some of the heaviest, wettest, nastiest snow I've seen in at least a decade.....it...
I busted a few of the little plastic hoo-hickeys off the wiper linkage end where it attaches to the wiper motor.
Has anyone come up with a way to replace the plastic part? Is this piece still available from the dealer or is the only option...
The little plastic part that holds the pivot arm (which runs from the motor to the passenger side wiper) broke and now it won't stay on. It doesn't look like it is replaceable, so I guess I need to replace the entire arm (íf I'm wrong about this, please tell me).
Anyone have one? Need to...
