The parts question is a can of worms on Ih8mud, there are several people who have had bad luck with one or another. However C Dan has a good overall rating from the masses. I personally have had good luck from SOr(Specter Off Road, bit pricey but part is usually in stock and usually the right one) Man a Fre is an old company and I have used them with only slight irritation usually relating to in stock status. CCOT has some friends and several enemy's on the site. Just check the advertisers section many are mud members and work the phone. Luck DocI have an 85 FJ60, bought about six months ago in Charleston. Some of you might have seen it for sale in the West Ashley Area. I get LOADS of information on this site and would like to meet up with fellow cruiserheads to swap ideas, tell stories, maybe trails, and basically talk cruisers.
My cruiser has about 153,000 miles, 4 spd, beige metallic, and doing well so far. I had McIntosh Imports machine and replace the exhaust/intake manifolds and gaskets, repair the radiator, and some other things, but it's basically been a great truck so far. It's not a daily driver but a 3rd vehicle, and I drive it into work a couple times a week and run some local errands with my 5 year old girl, she absolutely loves the truck. I've done some cosmetic stuff to it (CCOT console, interior stuff, various bulbs, etc.) and also a small tune up (new PCV valve, oil and wix filter, air filter, fuel filter, even did the sea foam treatment once, the neighbors really enjoyed the smoke and smell :whoops:
Where do you guys get parts? C-Dan? I need to get a choke cable and the FJ62 grab bar for my little girl. are there any decent junkyards in the Charleston Area where you have seen cruisers? Thanks and I plan on joining soon.
