    Where can I find accurate Land Cruiser value to register a truck?

    I hope this is the right subforum, if not, please let me know where to go. So I bought a 1973 FJ40. I went to my local auto license place. I paid $6000 for the old truck, which as you probably know, is fair for a beat up 73 truck. Here is the problem. The auto-license place needs proof that I...

    Cost of power steering for 1982 FJ40

    Just joined the forum. A little background. In 1978, we bought a beautiful FJ40 which we kept for 20 years. Selling it was one of the dumbest things I ever did. It would be one of those $35K Cruisers today. Long story short. Wife got the itch to buy a Cruiser for her 65th birthday. I'm more than...

    The mechanic gave me an estimate of $475 (parts & labor) to replace all 4 front tie rods. Does this price look fair?

    What's a reasonable cost expectation for painting my 80 series ?

    Other than typical bump and bruise type body and paint repairs over the years I have never had an entire vehicle painted so I have no idea what a realistic expectation might be to do a very basic repaint my 93 80 series. What I'm looking for is an affordable repaint done in the same color...

    I have some rust along edges of roof rack. Was thinking I would pull off rack and strips and have holes welded and roof sprayed. If you have had this done or gotten an estimate, how much for, what were they going to do? I reached out to a couple local places that I know of and first number...

    2f Rebuild Cost

    I'm thinking of purchasing an FJ60 that needs a complete rebuild. Closest reputable shop quoted me $5,100 to rebuild + $1,500 labor. I'd really appreciate some feedback on that pricing. For that amount, I'd almost rather step up to a LS3 swap.

    FJ62 Paint Job Suggestions

    Hey all. Looking to get my '88 FJ62 repainted in the Dallas area. I could do some of the prep work myself (removing trim, door handles, lights and grill, bumpers, etc.) but not the sanding work. I live in an apartment community and don't know where I'd manage it! I've read everything from...

    Cost of a suspension lift......

    Hello all I am thinking of the next mod for the truck, and a lift seems to be the most logical one. As my upgrade plans, I have installed EBC Green Stuff brakes all around two weeks ago, with EBC rotors that are slotted and dimpled (not cross drilled fancy and rather pointless for a truck this...
