    Just mentioning that my pal and I made it back from Panama safe and "The Beast" (hyperbole compaired to some of the builds here) performed beautifully. 1997 Toyota 4runner limited. Can't bring myself to drive the Accord anymore. We did try to maintain a blog but it was a pain. So, have a...

    3 months to drive around the US-Build Questions

    Hi all, I am preparing to drive my '99 LC around the US for the next 3 months or so. This LC is currently stock, save for some . I am trying to find good bumpers that do not weigh too much more than what they'd be replacing. I am conscious about gas mileage for this trip, and while I'd like...

    78 2f highway speed chug/cough - possible water in fuel

    over the past two days ive been driving my 1978 Fj40 from Denver up to Spokane where I go to school.

    Another 60 post purchase road trip

    Well I swore after the last long (ish) road trip immediately post purchase I wouldn't do it again. Well apparently it only took me 18 months or so to disavow that notion. Picked up an 85 with a 350 TBI, h55 and many other mods. It was located a couple of hours from Valley hybrids so...

    Winter road trip in my new ride.

    Well, maybe I shouldn't drink whiskey and surf eBay but I did. Last night I had the winning bid for a 1983 FJ60 based in Spokane, WA. I had been eyeballing it since the listing went up and got lucky with a last second bid. Spoke to current owner multiple times over the course of the auction...

    Road trip out west?!

    Working on a refit of a '96 J80 and would love to see another part of our beautiful country. I'm in NC and thought a road trip to the deserts out west would be a blast. Does anyone know of folks that might organize trail rides, or can anybody recommend certain areas? Any info most appreciated!

    Extended road trip parts list - 3FE

    My question for all you FJ80 & 3FE enthusiasts is, what would you include in a must have spare parts kit in your rig, thinking extended road trip around USA and down through South America? What are the showstopper components that I should have on hand?
