    I know this is long overdue, but here is the follow up to my "What should I do?" thread. My LX450 left my family stranded on the side of the highway after losing oil pressure the day after Thanksgiving. I was thinking about a swap, but found a 1FZ on Craigslist for $200 that I am rebuilding...

    Transfer Case

    I am about to rebuild the 2F in my 87' FJ60. I'm also thinking of upgrading to the h55f tranny. The vehicle has 320k miles and it doesn't look like the transfer case has been rebuilt. I have never had any issues with it, it's always operated perfectly. Should I have the T case rebuilt while...

    Rebuilding My Engine!

    Hey everyone! Today was day 2 of taking the 80 apart and stripping the engine. As I mentioned in my other post, I am having a shop do the actual engine build. But I am removing it and reinstalling it. To be honest, I feel a little overwhelmed right now and wish I didn't start this...

    New Cams or Remilled?

    I am having my FZJ80 (1993) engine rebuilt. A friend advised me to NOT let the shop rework the cams, but to order new ones. A pair are about $1k right now. With the rebuild already at approx $4k, that is a huge chunk of the budget. He claims there would be a HUGE loss of power, and that I...
