    I'm working on a resto mod. And Apparently I've been searching in all the wrong places to find more info on a build I saw some time ago. The mud member removed the frame rivets and used high grade bolts to replace. I'm very interested in doing the same. I feel high grade bolts with nor lock...

    Nice 2016 LC Builds videos from Jultimate in AU

    I came across these two on youtube. A Silver and White 2016 LCs with bullbars, drawers, rhino rack and lift. My 2016 LC is white and it is such a hard color to match with exterior parts such as ARB bumpers etc. but the black ARB bumpers on the white LC in the video is not looking bad either...

    Builds Lumpskie's Diesel 80 build

    Hey Guys, I've owned my 80 for a couple of weeks now, so I think it's time to start a build thread. Here are the basics of what I started with. I consider it a mechanically solid truck that needs a little TLC in the aesthetics department. '96 FZJ80 converted 1HD-T Engine: 115,000 miles...

    AP's LX470 Build

    Hi all! I'm new around here and figure I'll get a thread going to keep track of my LX470 journey.

    I got my first 100 series (or any worthwhile tuck ever, for that matter) at the beginning of this year, and although I have high hopes of building up an awesome rig like a lot of you have on here, I realize that I probably won't be able to get my truck built up as much as I'd like to before it's...

    The Iron Sheika - 1989 FJ62 Build Thread

    I rescued this 1989 FJ62 last year while living in Dubai. It was a US vehicle originally, having spent the majority of her life in Arizona (so almost 100% rust free). I bought her from an Iraqi gentleman who had purchased her and a 1985 FJ60 via an online salvage auction, and used them just to...

We've pretty much decided to go with 3/4" x .125 Aluminum tube with 1/8" 2" x 1" uprights and stringers, although there is some discussion of using 1" Aluminum for the base and 3/4" for the top railing.
