How many people are daily driving their 80-Series?
Was curious if all you guys have other vehicles that are easier on gas, smaller, etc. for daily commute to work and shopping and what not? Are these "toy/project" vehicles for most people on here or do some use them on a daily basis? Are OEM...
I'm a Toyota man
Not a Lexus
But there are many more 470's to choose from
Has anyone else changed the badges in the rear and the front grille so that to the casual observer, they would think I am a Toyota Landcruiser and not a foo-foo Lexus
What tools will I need to complete this (both sides) I want to hit this running and get her back on 4 wheels asap. So what will I need to start to finish the birfs. Ive built Bikes Jeeps and houses, So I have to ask.
Thanks In advance.
Rebuilding my wheel cylinders. Long story short I had to grab one from my 71 parts 40 to use on my 70 build. On the exterior they are the same size and look the same. The bore and pistons are different sizes. Will it matter? Will it screw up the stopping power and make it uneven?

Sure do feel good about my rig today!
I have an 2003 LX470, which has the factory 7-pin trailer light adapter. I extended these lines when I installed the frame mounted hitch. I also installed a P3 brake controller into the factory harness.
When I hook up my trailer, everything works perfectly, (lights, brakes, etc). However...
Swapped in a new FZJ80 FF axle with new brake lines and I'll be flushing brake system soon. I read up on DOT3 and DOT 4 brake fluid. It seems DOT 4 has a better boiling point and wet boiling point.
I assume DOT 4 is ok to run in our trucks or is the slight chemical composition difference a...
...and a week later the drivers side is noticeably lower..
Is this a case where they put the wrong spring in, or I should have done more research? The shop did all the ordering of the "parts I need" and installed them.
This isnt about the process, thats been covered, this is about what tool you are using.
Most of my l my life, like many, i have used the friend pumping the break method but I am at a age where myself and all my friends have very young kids so its not that easy to get a helper.
Do you guys like...
Looking to get a set of LED Flood and/or spot lights for my FJ40. Would love to know what people are using, how they like and any pics to show how they look. Also open to buying any that you might have and are not using.
All I'm finding available is the Slee short bus, ARB Bull Bar or some look-a-like variant and ugly (functional only) tube bumpers. Is that it? I've never learned to weld so build your own kit bumpers like what NWTI produces won't work. Any suggestions?
Nothing new here, just wheel spacers. That being said I just had to show these off to anybody who hasn't seen spacers from BORA.
I originally bought a set of 4 wheel centric spacers that were really nice, but despite the claim that they fit my '99 LX, the fronts wouldn't clear the drive...
I have a couple of stripped holes on my right knuckle. I was going to bump the stud up a size, but the more I think about, I'd rather find another knuckle. Anyone know where I can source a used one??
Thx in advance.
I've been eyeing this nice Japanese truck with Super Swampers lately: Akihito Chano (@chabohouse62v) • Instagram photos and videos

I have never worked on or owned a tacoma. I have been tossing up the idea of owning a Tacoma. I install networks. So that can require caring a ladder, part supplies and so on. I do not want a stick shift because traffic in Seattle is hell meaning...lots of shifting doing 15 mph on I-5.
I have a 1988 Fj62 with a 5.3 Vortec, H55 5-spd, CCOT 3" lift and 35" tires on it. It's my daily driver and I drive at least 20 miles per day on the highway. I just ate through my second set of rear spider gears. What is my best option here?
i took the Berdoo Canyon Road into Joshua Tree National Park going uphill when everyone else got the memo to go downhill.
I got crazy looks from a hummer tour operator and a few jeeps coming downhill.
I made it into Joshua Tree but my tires were spinning too much in a couple of sections in...
I am wondering how much toe in the folks on here are running. I have 315's and 75mm lift. The truck seems to be tracking straight, but it follows the road readily. I am going to check my settings tomorrow with the technique @Tools R Us describes in the FAQ. I thought while I'm in there if the...
