    Exhaust shop

    After only 3 years (March 2014), my high and tight tucked exhaust is looking pretty ragged. There are several issues. The surface rust is so bad that I could probably poke a hole in the pipe. The cat is so close to the shield that it bangs when out on the trail. The passenger side floor gets...

This will be a 3rd vehicle and help exercise my tinkering habit as well as family fun (snow, beach, and camping mainly) I cant seem to find the link to the PDF (2004 i think) that is usually passed around. If anyone...

    Diesel Shop for IP Rebuild Recommendation, HDJ81

    Hello There! Long time lurker, first time posting. I've had a 1990 HDJ81 in California for almost a year now, and it's been a great rig. I recently had the ACSD pin shear (stupid me for not deleting it earlier) which sent a bunch of metal shavings into the IP and me chasing a couple small...

    Shop recommendations in San Antonio, TX

    Hey all, I'm stranded 200 miles from home so a tow back is out of the question. I'm looking for a place that can drop the transmission to replace a torque converter on my 01 LX470. At first the symptoms were an occasional slipping tranny and eventually a P0770 code, so I thought the problem...

    Anyone use a high school auto shop for body work?

    I'm thinking there's very little an amateur can screw up on fixing the rust on my rig. The panels are flat, and replacement sheet metal for the tricky parts are widely available. There's no interior trim or upholstery to dick with, and I'm not a stickler for deadlines, originality or...
