    Hey all, I am working on my June 72 FJ40, and am making slow steps to getting it back into running shape. The exhaust manifold is incredibly rusty, and I am concerned the heat riser may not be working due to the rust. I feel like it would need a month long soak in PB blaster before it would...

    WDYD Rusted out muffler?

    I've got a '99 Land Cruiser that is by no means in mint condition, but it runs well enough and is a reliable winter vehicle. Lately it's been running rather loud. It's been throwing a cat code for a few years but otherwise been fine. Recently it started having misfires so got new plugs, a new...

    Rust on '03 Cruiser - Deal breaker?

    Looking at purchasing an '03 Land Cruiser with about 140k miles on it. My main concern is the level of rust on the under carriage. Is this amount of rust a deal breaker or not going to be worth the headache of having it cleaned up? How expensive of a bill do you think it would be to clean...

    Threads worn

    I have an upper rear shock mount that pretty much had no threads on the stud after removing the castle nut. I tried to retread with same m12 threads but really wasn’t enough there to tighten a new nut with any torque. I was thinking of maybe threading with 7/16 tap??? Anybody have any ideas ?

    RUST: Am I in over my head?

    I am flying to pick up this cruiser this week and wanted to know what everyone thinks of the rust. It’s a 1982 fj40 and I’ve wanted that year for a while now. However I do not want the rust. Does this rust warrant a new tub or am I being dramatic?
