    Best non-winter-only tire for my LC in Utah

    So I bought my LC while living in Arkansas. Had Michelin LTX M/S2's on it. Picked up an extra set of wheels and put some Falken WildPeak MT's on them for the muddy/Rocky terrain in Arkansas. Now I'm in SLC area...have to think of winter tires. I know those Michelins will be ok in the snow, and...

    Best tires for a 93 FJ 80

    I've searched on this site for tire evaluations but the search option just brings up unrelated crap. I love my Michelin 275-70-16 but no longer available. We use this car in rain and highway snow and off road minor trips but not serious mudding. I most want traction in rain. The only problem...

I sometimes feel that I could do with more engine power. My car is a 1980 BJ44 with original 1B diesel engine. I have upgraded...

    Best location for louvers in hood for heat egress (w/pics)

    I've kind of got a bee in the bonnet--no pun intended--about adding louvers to the Ugly Duckling 1970 FJ40 we are building for heat egress. Might get louvers punched locally, but more likely will add louver panels. Something like the attached photo--just not so huge! Maybe two panels of 7 or 11...

    Best place to purchase a new alternator

    my alternator on my 69 fj40 died. I have been looking online for a replacement but everything I find is $250. I found some on amazon for half that price but I am not 100% positive that they are correct. Anyways, I figured somebody on here could point me in the right direction of a good replacement.
