I purchased a '72 fj40 a few weeks ago and was in the process of putting life back into it (a classic barn find, if you will) when a serious knock developed: spun bearings for sure. The current engine is an early F (not original) and had been "re-manufactured" as evident from a tag on the block...

Selling my 73 FJ40. Brought to MI from Utah, solid good running and driving 350 with SM465. Great for restoring or off road as is. Lots of original parts, jump seats in back, hard top and doors, bikini top. $10800.
I bought a 1978 40 series land cruiser that I am going to restore.
It has a B engine. So it will probably end up with a V8
I started by getting the axles sand blasted and painted, replaced all the bearings. And bought new 2" lift leaf springs, shocks, steering arms, brake cylinders and brake...
I've had my cruiser for a couple years now and it's served me well on many adventures, but at the miles creep up, my quest for power drives ever onward.
Now in my possession is a zero-mile '04 GM 5.3 L59 that I intend to have carry me throughout the forests and hills; getting there is...
I am new here, just trying to figure something out and wondering if anyone can help. I have recently had some attachments put on my cruiser (100 series V8 year 2000) these include bull bar, dual battery system, aux fuel tank, roof rack and snorkel. I know that my fuel economy would drop...
Up for sale is my 1976 FJ40. Truck is a roller as the rear Tub is pulled off (rust issues). I have the front clip/bib/fenders/quarters/grill/all lights. All this FJ needs is a tub and a bit of welding on the cowl. I had planned on just getting a full tub but have no space to keep it while...
I searched around the internet for awhile and was unable to get a clear answere. Is it necessary to weld reinforcement plates anywhere on the frame to hand a V8 with 350+ horsepower conversion and not tear the frame up?
Live in Atlanta, GA. Looking for a FJ80, FZJ80 or the Lexus versions anywhere close by. Own a '88 FJ62 right now and am looking for something with more power. That being said I would prefer a rig with an upgraded engine. However, would absolutely still consider anything that looks nice with low...

Wow, the V8 Swap thread up to almost 1000 posts!
My 80 needs more motivation! I am eagerly awaiting the bolt-on turbo kit, but a few things really nag me: First is the limited ratio spread of the A343 (I am 3 hours from Moab, but have to drive on 80 mph freeways to get there - do I pick...
Hey everybody, been in the 80 series tech forum a bit trying to get opinions on a few 80's for sale and joining the Land Cruiser club. I've been scrolling for months and just haven't seemed to find the perfect match yet so I've broadened my horizons into the 60's series. (I'm a bigger fan of the...
First of all, let me apologize because I am not a mechanic and I have a lot of information to convey so I hope it makes sense.
My car is a 1968 FJ40 with a Chevy 350 TBI swap. It starts and runs but it overheats and once it is warm (not overheated) it backfires through the intake...

Some of you may remember or be familiar with my FJ62 that I picked up just over two years ago.
I picked it up as a stock truck, and really enjoyed turning it into something of my own. We had some ups and downs, with it getting stolen last spring... It was recovered, but missing a...
