    Long travel LX570

    Well I got the tundra LT arms on with factory shocks. AHC completely in tact. I've moved the ride hight up 4 in by adding hiem joints in place of factory AHC connection links.... this allows you to lift above limitations. The lower shock mounts were moved up 1 in with the design of the...

    Goin' End To End 12/78 FJ40 "Yellow Truck"

    Bought my first 40, she's a 12/78. Not a lot of great history from the PO except that the previous owner to him used it in Montana for hunting. I think I made a decent buy although when I got it home I found gas in the oil. There wasn't any I could see when I did the walk around so I'm hoping...

    1996 LX450

    Many of you guys chimed in when I was contemplating a 40th Anniversary series outside of Portland. In the hunt though I found a 1996 LX 450 in Bend and flew out there this morning and picked it up. The pics made it look like it was in amazing condition, it wasn't quite "amazing" and...

    Sold my first FJ60 a year ago but still have the FJ blood coursing thru my veins so picked up this one last weekend. Too much rust, actually, but hey. It was $800, interior is like new, and engine isn't locked up. Giddyup.....

    My HJ60 Build

    So I have had my 60 for about a year now and have decided to start a build thread on it, to help keep track of what I've done and share it with you guys. I Don't really use it for wheeling, just my DD, do a lot of towing and driving round the farm. so my 'build' isn't really a restoration or...

    2006 GX470 w/Sport Package Build - blackice00

    Hello, I'm new to the GXOR world, but not new to building performance vehicles! I was shopping for a 4th Gen V8 4Runner last November to daily drive and occasionally tow my 240SX money-pit I have owned and daily driven since 2007. After having a vehicle sold out from under me and several other...

    BluezClues Build '79 RN37 Pickup

    BluezClues build. Name hit me as it was the favorite tv show of my cousin who passed away right before the end of 2019. Having been in a wheelchair all his life, he would have enjoyed riding in some larger wheels the same color as his favorite tv show character. I didn’t do a build thread on my...

    What have I done.....81 FJ60 aka Tetanus

    Well I'm usually the guy who figures out he wants a certain classic 5 years after they become popular and decent examples become expensive and the rest are a ton of work. I decided I wanted a 60 bad enough to take on a pretty big project. I doubt it's the most rusty but it's definitely going to...

    My progression over the coming years with an interesting forty

    I’m going to be posting to this thread with my progression of my truck. This truck is my first car that I bought when I was 15.It is a 1979 (sike, turns out it’s a 77) BJ40 diesel. I bought it from a guy in Costa Rica who restored a ton of stuff back to factory spec. I got a killer deal on it...

    CAM’s 2016 GX460 Build

    I’m glad to jump back on this site after 14 years of owning a Mustang and an almost unmentionable Altima. I guess the kiddos toys were more important than dad’s toys. BUT... that’s all changing now. The information I’ve already found here is really invaluable as building up a GX is not as...

    Rediscovering an '87 FJ60

    OK, finally time to start a thread documenting my work on my FJ60. Through this thread, I'm hoping to give back what I can to the community. I'll do my best to document everything and include part numbers. Though, I realize now how hard it is to stop and take pictures when you're in the middle...

    Analog’s ’19 GX460 Alaska Build

    I picked up a lightly used (≈10k mile) CPO ’19 GX460 in December in preparation for a move from Texas to Alaska for work. As much as I loved my '06 GX470, I wanted something newer and lower mileage. I went with the simplest GX I could find. No air suspension, no camera-based driving aids. I’m...
