    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.

    I like old Toyota SUV's and I cannot lie... This 1996 Landcruiser is a "small" birthday present to myself as I have always loved 80's and have wanted one for awhile. I actually went and checked out this one for a buddy of mine a couple years ago. He ended up buying it and having a go at the...

    Builds  KarashiFJ40 1975 Survivor

    Never thought I’d be able to get into a 40. I’ve owned a 83 FJ60 for 10 years now. Was excited when @red66toy shared a Offer up add for a dirt cheap rusted out 40. Three of us converged on the guy who met us at a Hispanic market near by in South Seattle. We unintentionally overwhelmed him...

    After some considerable time and lessons learned, I’ve decided to encapsulate my build here to share some of the “knowledge” I have obtained. *Spoilers* most of what I have applied to my truck, I have learned from others.

    Starting a thread for my 'new to me' BJ40. It is originally from Costa Rica.

Anyway, a buddy and me have started the process of getting...

    LM7/4L60E swap with no lift

    Hi all, I recently bought an FZJ80 from a member here with a severely overheated engine. The rest of the truck is in relatively good shape; minor surface rust on the underside but all the body panels are rust free (which is rare for an MN 80). The plan is to do a 5.3 swap with the Marks adapter...
