    Seat Belt rewebbing

    I sent my '78 driver's side OEM FJ40 seat belt to Safety Restore in Westfield, MA. They advertise on eBay and the web that they will replace the webbing and clean/lube/repair the unit for $75 or so. I found a discount code on the web that covered the amount of the return shipping and then some...

    Hey Mudders, I bought a 1983 Toyota Pickup long box this last summer, and while the bed is in pretty good shape, it's starting to rust and I want to get it fixed/replaced. I've been looking online and there are a few aftermarket bed sides around, but none of which are long-bed length. Does...

    Project Barnwork 78 FJ40

    A friend mentioned he had an old land cruiser sitting in a barn and said he'd talk to his sister about us going there and moving it... he parked it 6+ years ago... Months go by (where I read tons of mud forum posts, day dream, and work on my 100, making every mistake there is to make), and I say...

    Builds  Hawkdriver’s 1975 FJ40 Refurb Thread

    Holy schnikies! There are enough “build threads” on this section that the subject should probably have its own subforum. This factor alone has been a main reason that I’ve hesitated to start my own thread, ever since the ol 40 was parked and this project began some 3+ years ago. Among the other...

    1988 Cruiser Color Codes

    In the process of restoring my white 88 cruiser. Not sure exactly which "white" color code is correct? Everything that I've seen thus far, points me towards color code 045, but the color swatch looks beige/tan, rather than white. Any assistance provided, is highly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    Builds  1965 FJ40 FST Restoration Thread "Old Yeller"

    Hey everyone! I hope you are ready for another teardown/build thread, because I don't doubt that this project is going to be an adventure... This is the second FJ40 I've owned – I also have a third I call Dirtbag – but Old Yeller is by far the most original. Over the last 6 years I have...

    Can't find a place to finish '76 FJ40 restoration (Phoenix, ARIZONA)

    Long story short: Purchased the FJ40 over a year ago. I'm 22 and have invested 1500 hours, and 15k+ in brand new oem parts, restoration tools, etc... Took it apart after driving it twice thinking i could restore it quickly. Took longer than expected. Was working on it outside my parent's house...

    FJ40 Restoration, Convert to EFI?

    We are starting to restore our 1971 FJ40. My grandfather bought it new. It still has the original engine. The carburetor had previously been replaced. I want to keep it as original as possible, but I'm considering upgrading to a fuel injection system (possibly a Howell or Weber). Either fuel...

    I bought a 1978 40 series land cruiser that I am going to restore. It has a B engine. So it will probably end up with a V8 I started by getting the axles sand blasted and painted, replaced all the bearings. And bought new 2" lift leaf springs, shocks, steering arms, brake cylinders and brake...

    Project “Moose-Nuk”

    hey all! I’ve started tear down on my project. I have a 1991 TLC. Got it for $200, it was already hacked. So the plan is to keep it convertible and cage it and make a custom top for it. Also plan on swapping in a 5.3l vortec out of a 2003 pickup and got my 4l60e 2wd trans. I am keeping the stock...
