Hey guys, been an addict for a while now but never introduced myself. I've got an '89 FJ62 with 182k on the speedo. I am extremely mechanically ignorant but you all have made doing work on my Cruiser much more bearable and a hell of a lot cheaper. So, with that I wanted to thank you guys. Just recently painted the grill and some minor work on the interior. Also am able to do my minor tune up things. Things I would like to do would be to give it a small lift and get some manly tires. Thanks all, Ryan

The truck is 20 years old, man. It is time for some new springs. Buy 'em from Cruiser Outfitters and bolt 'em on. You will love the ride, and then you will go for the new tires. Replacing springs is a fun project. I did mine myself, and that is evidence right there that anyone can do it!

Currently it's a dd but planning on retiring to South America in a few years so it will be turning into an expedition vehicle. Do plan on working on the leaf when I get back from Cali next week. Slowly gaining confidence on doing work on it so there's a bunch that I want to do.

welcome! Sounds like you are on the right track.

I agree! We did AAL in the rear and new +1.5" shackles and I have lots of room should I want to go to a 33" tire. I went with an Aussie locker in the rear (you will get lots of opinions on this) and am very happy with it.
