    3-speed transmission swap to a 4-speed?

    I am looking to improve my rig by upgrading my stock 3-speed tranny. I have looked at the 5-speed option, but it gets very expensive with all that is needed. Have read a lot that the 4-speed makes the FJ40 a nicer daily driver. Besides getting the H41 4-speed transmission and bell house, what...

    What sort of fuel tank prep did you perform for your gas to diesel conversions? Did you go with a new tank or clean/prep your old tank?

    E-Locker Axle Swap Info Quest

    Hey all, I've got a line on a 93 Cruiser with e-lockers for about $2.5k. It has a bunch of other parts I'm interested in grabbing for my current rig - a 97 Cruiser, so I'm not considering this price for the lockers alone. For the fairly light trails I do a few times per year, there is no...

    2F SM420 swap to H42

    My 77 Fj45 has an SM420 transmission and I've bought a H42 to swap back into it as the 420 is in bad shape. Does anyone have insight on modifications that would have been done to get the Chevy trans in there? Or could the h42 be bolted back it into the housing and go from there? Thanks in advance!

    So I am pretty new here and am thinking about doing a 6bt swap on my 80

    I have a 93 FZJ80 and I want to drop a 6bt in it. I live in WA and I do not have any room to do it myself. Before calling around and embarrassing myself what can I expect to pay for something like this? I can maybe find a garage at a friends if the price of labor is too high, but I would rather...

    After requested, I decided to post up a build of a double Axle swap on a LX470. It was an incredible amount of work. Would be a shame to not post up the documentation of the build.

    Center Differential Lock Button Swap

    Is it possible to swap the push-button out for a rotary knob of some sort? Strange question perhaps, but there is a valid reason. This morning the wife managed to hit the button and called me a couple miles from the house saying the tires were squealing when she went around corners and turned...

    Ever since I bought my 97 40th anniversary she has had a knock in the engine. I have been amazed how reliable these engines are.
