    Moving up to 37’s, advice requested

    My 96 cruiser is coming up due for tires. I’ve had them for 7 years, and recently noticed an outer sidewall cut in one of them. I’m already geared for 37’s by the owner two titles ago, so I’m looking to bump it back up. I’m curious how far some have gone to prep for the swap. So far, here’s...

    Beginning build

    Greetings. New to the forums. Just picked up a '71 FJ40. Had a '79 many years ago and felt nostalgic. That said I've lurked some of the threads and I have a question for the masses: Keep it a stock restoration or go resto-mod using end value as the parameter. I'm 2nd owner of '71. Has 35k...

    Builds Builds: Bad Memory 1974 FJ40

    Calling this thread bad memory not as a nod to the gas mileage I got towing this thing home but more so as a tribute to to my terrible ability to remember what I have done. So. I will take a lot of pictures and post them there so I can look back and remember when I did something. Plus I will...

    Amateur Franken40 Build

    Hi, my name is Dan and I’m a toyotaholic. Long time lurker, and finally far enough along on my build that I felt it was worth starting a build thread. A little about me, my first car I bought was a ‘99 4Runner that I modified lightly, and began wheeling a few years ago. After getting into some...

    Big Country Drawers installed

    Installed my Rugged Bound drawers today. Very impressed with the system and the order process. Theo from @RuggedBound was great to work with; he kept me in the loop with the shipping and even had time for a couple of goofy questions. After taking the third row out, I put down a layer of...

    Mustard Yellow FJ45 Build - My First FJ

    Hey, everyone. I'm new-ish to the forum, just having acquired my FJ45 2 months ago. I've always admired FJ40s, and considered it a dream vehicle of mine, but was more of a BMW car guy at heart. I've owned an E39 M5, 2 x E30s, and a Z3 Coupe (regret selling this). I still own a 1990 325is, but it...

    "So what happened was..." Build

    As it seems this will be a long-term build, I think I owe it to my new ride to document. So what happened was I grew up in New England where rust was the ultimate killer... you could never win, you could just hope to stay in the game long enough to survive. So when I saw this 2001 LC posted...

    Tony Flowers 2003 GX470 Build & Maintenance thread

    My dad bought a GX470 around 2012-2013 with 120,00 miles then proceeded to daily drive and occasionally tow his boat until 2019 when he bought a Tundra to replace it. It was due for some maintenance and he no longer needed the GX so he decided to offered me the opportunity to buy it from him...

    Builds Nomads GX460 build - DIY, hands on

    Just another SoCal 460 trying not to look like a minivan. Part of the fun for me is the DIY aspect of modding. I look at things and think about how I can do it for less or get a better bang for the buck. I'm not just going to buy and bolt on aftermarket parts all over. Nothing wrong with it and...
