    New FJ60 Owner, seeking advice

    Hey Mudders, I recently purchased a beautiful '81 FJ60, and after quite a bit of research, I have a few questions on what should be done initially, as I will not have a service record for the car. I am planning on replacing the fluids as soon as the truck arrives, rebuilding knuckles, and...

    Electrical woes for new owner

    Purchased a 2005 LX470 about 6 weeks ago and it has been great. It has 60,000 miles and all of the scheduled work had been done at Lexus dealer. I haven't done much in the way of mods yet, but I have done a couple and I am worried one of the mods has had a pretty negative effect. To date, I...

    New owner of old 4runner

    Originally was hell bent in buying an FJ80 but this deal came up on my daily CL search and couldn't resist. Picked up a 1986 4runner 22re with 136k original miles, SAS leaf, high steer, 35s, 5.29s, and locked. Unfortunately it's an automatic and has a fair amount of body rust. Got it for...

    A new owner of a 100!

    I've been searching for a long time and finally found the perfect truck. Milage is at 230k which might be high? It's been well taken care of, the interior looks almost untouched, under the hood looks clean. I can't even believe it's a 98. So I'm not even close to worried. I'm new to the forum...

    72 Hours - Bought a Puppy & a 100

    Hi all, I moved to Salt Lake City from Pittsburgh in October and there was no way I was going to live in this state without owning a 4x4 overlander for taking advantage of this awesome geography. At first the target was a VW Vanagon Syncro, then for a while an 80 series (almost flew to Texas...

    Time To Take the Plunge on a 1998 LC

    I’ve been lurking in the forums for several years now watching and reading and dreaming about a LC. It’s time to take the plunge. In all fairness, even though I’ve been lurking, I barely understand a fraction of the threads. I am not mechanically inclined by any means. And when I say I’m not...

    Hey everyone thanks for checking out my post. I'm new to the LC/LX world and I'm looking at trading someone my car for a 1996 LX450 with 105k original miles on it. The LX seems to be in good shape. The body is clean, the interior is pretty decent. It does have the lockers and good leather...
