    Rear Chassis Restoration

    Hey folks! I finally got the rear bumper off after a long battle with one rusty bolt. This is what I have.... see pictures. Any recommendations for moving forward from previous experience? Also, any idea if this part that seems like a "buffer" behind the bumper should just be replaced?

    So after 6 months of staring, drooling, and bugging my wife I bought my first land cruiser. It’s a 1987, 215k, and I got it for a whopping $2500. I think I bought the rustiest cruiser in North America however the frame has nothing but light surface rust (that I saw). I will be starting...

    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.

    Holy schnikies! There are enough “build threads” on this section that the subject should probably have its own subforum.
