    1992 HZJ-75 Troopy: Going to need a bunch of advice on this build.....

    Whether it is a good or bad idea has yet to be seen, but I was able to purchase an old 1992 75 Series 1HZ troopy. Mechanically seems legit at first glance, body and interior are a bit rough but those should be easy fixes as the interior is pretty sparse to begin with. I am rookie with dealing...

    Stigr build

    I bought a new white 2018 LC200 (Stigr) to travel with family in North America, South America, and maybe overseas. I have two kids, and my significant other has two kids.

    Greta the 1987 HJ60 Cruiser

This aint a show car. It was meant for wheeling and camping. Just wanted to share the progress ive done on the...

    EchoSpartan’s Salt Lake Cruiser

    Hey everyone! I’ve been lurking the forums for a long time now, and made my account a week after picking up a totally babied 100 series from my best friend. I’ve actually migrated to ih8mud from T4R.org where I had my build thread for my 3rd gen 4runner. If you are interested in that rather...

    First LC Build: '97 40th Anniversary Mall Crawler

    Howdy y'all! I needed a "reasonable daily driver" that I could quickly ruin with modifications, and always liked FJ80's. Finally settled on a non-locked (I'm not an offroad hero) 40th Anniversary in Sage. The truck has some cosmetic issues on the drivers side and hood (plenty of paint fade from...

    Builds - 1997 FZJ80 in Colorado

    I should have started this thread last year, but here it goes: After owning two Land Rovers, it was time to throw in the towel. I found a 3x locked ‘97 in Steamboat Springs last year and pulled the trigger. The previous owner had already outfitted the truck pretty well with ARB and Slee...

    Mean, lean and Seafoam green. 1971 FJ40

    Hey all. This will end up being my journal on my 1971 FJ40. I’m sure I will have a ton of questions. This FJ40 came to me with a 305 sbc and a th350. It’s equipped with the stock tcase with an adapter. Money is a bit tight right now, due to Covid19 woes, so I am going to do less expensive...

    New to me ‘66 FJ

    Hello all. Picked up this old girl last weekend and looking forward to putting some work into it. Runs and drives a little rough, but I think a valve adjustment to start will go a long ways. Then a general tune up hopefully and I’ll drive it around town some. I do live in Oregon however and it...
