    Fj40- t-case issues

    So I’ve got an h42 trans with the manual t-case, but when it’s in any gear,( 2,4h,4L )doesn’t matter, and I’m coasting in any gear (1,2,3,4 ) the t-case will pop out and go into neutral but as soon as I come to a stop or a slow roll I can put the t-case back into gear so down hills I have to...

    8x Series V8 Swaps

    This thread is for V8 swaps to 80 Series Toyota Land Cruisers. Your truck frame must start with the following: FJ80-0xxxxxx or FZJ80-0xxxxxx. Of course, it can also start with an HDJ/HZJ iteration. Only the Aussies yank out perfectly good Toyota diesel engines to swap V8 power into them...
