    Replacing rectangle dash lights w LEDs

    Since I couldn't find a good thread on how to change the micro rectangle dash bulbs, I figured I would do a quick write up. Hopefully the pics will do most of the talking for me. Carefully pry the brown lights from the control panels. The tabs on the board are pretty strong but they will bend...

    Ignition Tumbler (cylinder) change

    Anyone point me either to a thread, or an FSM scan of the right page for getting the ignition tumbler swapped out? Mine is toast. Either I cannot search worth a damn, or this doesn't happen often to our rigs. I've only owned this thing for 2 months trying to get it road ready, so I've never...

    how often to change oil if I'm replacing a bunch already?

    Kind of a random question, but here goes. I drive my cruiser very little lately, maybe 1000-2000 miles a year max, just camping adventures and the like. I have a pretty bad oil leak - I have to put in a quart every 1000 miles or so. So question is, given these parameters, how often should I...

    ATF WS Fluid Change near Philly

    I had an appointment to get my WS fluid changed in my 07 LX470 at a nearby lexus dealership who assured me they could do it without issue (after speaking to another dealership who informed me that WS fluid wasn't intended to be changed, and wouldn't do it). Unfortunately they just called and...

    Diff Fluid Change

    So I just recently got my bearings redone on the hundy and feel that a diff fluid change is a smart next move as I haven't done it in a very long time. What fluid is the best fluid to go back with and does anyone have any suggestions to make this easier? I know its pretty straightforward already...

    color change

    Greetings, I did something last night while on mud and I can't tell how to change it back. When viewing mud the pages where normal/dark/default? Now the pages are white/bright. It is like this no matter what device I use so I must have changed something on my actual profile? How do I get...

    BJ74 AC/ALT/PS Belt Change Tips

    G'day everyone! I got hold of a BJ74 a few months back for a relatively good price here in Australia. I sent it in to have a checkup and to see what needs attention and one of the things was "drive belts". I have now purchased the necessary belts and they're sat here waiting to go on. I was just...

    For those shopping for gear fluids...

    After checking gear fluids in the truck, I realized it was a paramount concern to replace. Like everyone else, I decided to think about my options for fluids and after a trip to a few local places, I was shot down in my efforts to find GL4 for the trans/transfercase. Now I get it, the manual...

    400k mile RCA bushing change

    Backstory: My 1992 cruiser was pretty smooth on my first set of Kenda Klevers MTs that were installed around 360k miles, but when they warrantied that set last at 374k miles March the ride quality deteriorated. We had a set put on and then headed out for Moab a day later, and it was shaking...

    I purchased a new non-US 60180 kilometer instrument cluster to install in my stock 1971 FJ40 US model. Can I replace the 50 ammeter with an older 30 ammeter inside the cluster?

    FJ62 Oil Change

    I hope this thread doesn't open up a can of worms. I did a search and I could only find a thread about this subject from 2012. What oil are y'all using during your oil changes? Any old oil filter good to go? Should I use a "high mileage" oil? My FJ62 only has 163K miles. I say "only" because I...

    80 Series Fluid change & inspection priorities. Where to start ?

    So I guess this is where I come clean as to just how much of a novice I am at this but so be it. After falling into a "you won't believe it deal" on a 93 80 series last year that was & is running and sounding great I decided before starting to dump non required preventative and accessory...

    1991 3FE running rough/instant change

    Hi Everyone, I'm new to this forum so forgive me if I have posted something already covered. I could not find exactly the same scenarios as my troubles. I was driving down the highway at 65mph, when instantly I lost power. From that point forward, it sputtered and ran horribly. I could hear...
