    Builds 1987 FJ60 Restoration + 5.3 Vortec Swap

    Hi guys, my name is Joe (long time lurker, first time poster). A little less than a year ago I bought a 1987 FJ60. This thing was an interesting specimen. No carpet but also no rust as there was 30 years worth of road grime keeping the chassis nice and safe! The initial idea for the truck was to...

    Man-a-Fre Auxiliary Fuel tank

    Finally time to upgrade my fuel system on my ‘74 40. Bought the overpriced man-a-fre auxiliary 21 gal tank to feed 5.7 LS recently installed. Fill neck suggestions? Anyone have experience with this system? Planning on removing the under seat tank altogether. Tips and tricks? Thx!

    Builds Another LS swap? Really???

    Hello all, I figured I would take a few moments to lay out what I have been up to since my Rug Road knuckle stud debacle. I bought my 1997 LX450 Easter weekend in 2017. I had a 2000 100 series before and regretted selling it from day one. I knew I wanted another, but thought the 80 series...

    2f vs LS - A Character Discussion

    I know that the virtues of both powertrains have been discussed ad nauseum and I understand the pros and cons to both. What I was hoping to hear from people is how they feel that the character of the truck changed after going from the 2f to the LS? In particular, part of the fun of driving one...

    LS into my FJ45 LV thread

    Dont get too excited, I'm on a fact finding and recommendation mission. I am a looong way from being ready to move forward with the actual install, but I figured I should start to formulate a game plan. There is not a lot of info on installing V8's into LV's. Jonathan Ward, of course being the...

    Builds 1985 FJ60 -> 6.0 Liter LS Swap Build Thread

    Hey Guys. Some of you may remember or be familiar with my FJ62 that I picked up just over two years ago. I picked it up as a stock truck, and really enjoyed turning it into something of my own. We had some ups and downs, with it getting stolen last spring... It was recovered, but missing a...

    LS Swap orrrrr.. a Taco

    Hey Mudders, I am in conundrum, or something. I want to keep my 60 since I have around 11k in it and there's no way I'm getting that out. But I hate it's slow useless motor, and the frame is rusted through in the center. I have a new rust-free and freshly powdercoated frame waiting to drop under...
