    Builds  Back in a 40! - AussieHJCruza's HJ47 Build - 12HT swap turning into a frame-off

    G'day 40 series crew, Happy to say I'm back in a 40 series, gotta say although the 60s, 79 and 80s were fun, there's something about a 40 that nothing else has. Having got a company car and no-longer needing a cruiser as a daily, started to get the 40 itch again, so obviously the best solution...

    Oh the humanity! My 74s journey back to drivable

    Lurked on Ih8mud for a long time. Been a long time Toyota lover and own 3 others but all newer stuff. I bought this rig for my wife's company to plow with almost 8 years ago. They were just starting out and didn't have the $ to buy a real plow rig. My plan was to always take it over and...

    I have had this FJ-45 in storage for many years, and am finally starting on the rebuild. We have had the frame blasted, primed, and painted, and the body goes to media blasting later this week. It is a 67 LPB, original US truck. The motor was swapped some time ago to a Toyota Diesel, but the...

    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...

    Builds  A Sinister Cruiser - 1996 3x Locked FZJ80 Build

    Well my first Cruiser is base lined now, so I suppose I should start a build thread as the fun mods begin. After trading in my 15' Tundra Platinum my garage was without a Toyota for 2 years. Then I went down the Land Cruiser YouTube rabbit hole, which let me to google and finding Mud. After a...

    empty80's Rolling Research Build

    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. I've highlighted a few major headings as they pertain to the systems that...

    The YotaMD Build - Cypress

    This may as well be titled "The LX that 'Mud Built" because without the Mud community support of YotaMD this would not exist. So I offer an upfront and sincere "Thank You!" to you awesome folks that support your community vendors like YotaMD. Now, let's dive into the fun stuff. 2006 LX470 in...

    2005 LX470 w/96k Overland Build

    I bought my first 100 series about a month ago, and I'm not sure how I've been living without one for so long! Anyway, I've done a few things to it. I finally got a chance to snap some pics, and I've included one "before" shot as well. How I bought it: I shopped for a couple months...

    The Green, The Bad, and The Ugly

    Rough. That's about as candy-coated and optimistic of a description that you can apply to this old man. He was ridden hard and put away wet, put out to pasture to spend the rest of his days in the rich farmlands of the San Joaquin Valley, California, amongst the lazy cows and their multitudinous...

    First post...gonna be long...a lot happened really quickly. I've always loved the FJ60s, but just never had the time/$$/know-how to own one. Well, that recently changed. I just bought my first FJ60, a 1987 with 197K miles on the original 2F and 4-speed manual transmission. I wasn't really...
