    Fender Liner Trim/Movement tips?

    Goodmorning GXOR, it's your friendly neighborhood noob asking for advice from many of you experienced experts. I'm planning on staying stock height for a little while since a lift can be a bit of an investment (also the air bags are pretty comfy for day to day) but once my tires wear down I...

    Minor mod questions

    Longtime lurker first time poster. Driving a new to me 2015 LC. So far stock. What are you folks' opinion on line-x under coating? I've been quoted $599+tax. Worth it? What's the opinion on bug deflectors? Do the mounting brackets trap dirt and leave marks in the paint? I have a few rock...

    4x4 labs rear tire carrier mod

    So I love my rear bumper set up made by Luke at 4x4 labs. I was getting a shake with the tire carrier left and right that was bothering me as I watched the tire in the rear view mirror. This was only at highway speed and at random times. I solved the issue with my high lift jack and was able to...

    Found Local Machine Shop for 2nd Groove Birf Mod

    I just wanted to pass on a solid local business that took care of my 2nd c-clip groove machining on my birfs for the part time mod moving to Aisin locking hubs. He doesn't do much local or walk in work, most of his work comes from accounts in Ohio but he was referred to me by @Spamcheese...

    Tojo 64 resto mod build

    I guess it's time to start a build. I've been absorbing information from this forum for two years now and am extremely greatful for the wealth of knowledge here! I knew nothing of Fj40's prior to getting mine. I've been a huge fan of Toyota for many years now. I've owned a 2011 Tacoma, 2012...

    no mod goes unpunished - electrical issues again

    here we go again. This week end - I thought, instead of just fixing some broken part of the Fj - that I would add a functional upgrade, in the form of sound. I found the NOAM n4 speaker, and micro marine amp, with just a simple aux in port. Nothing fancy, just plug the phone in and get some...

    Fog lamp mod - Anyone figured out a low/high/independent option?

    With the 100 Series a single wire in the master light switch can be modified to allow use of the fog lamps in expanded scenarios, i.e. run them in park, low beam or high beam. Has anyone figured out such a thing with the 200?

    The worst mod to a fj40

    After clogging one radiator, and loosing another due to excessive corrosion, I finally got smart and put in high quality premix toyota pink coolant. No further issues. I used to think using distilled water was for over paranoid crazies and tap water would be fine. I guess they aren't crazy. My...

    Raising the spare tire, in stock location

    On my 80 series, the spare tire hung REALLY low, but there was a mod that moved the mount up about 4 inches, which then made my tow receiver the lowest hitting point in the rear. I searched a little bit and did not find anything similar for the 200. Does anyone know of a mod that would push...

    60/62 later model parts upgrade or interchange

    I’ve been combing the forum for parts I need to replace on my 60 and coming across possible oem upgrades is kind of random. So I just wanted to possibly start a thread on OEM later model year upgrade parts for the FJ60 that are either a bolt on or very minor modification to make work as...
