I brought my white 25 down to Phoenix in May to do a little work on it and found the frame cracked on both sides in front. After trying all summer to find someone close to weld it a local CSC member offered to weld it up (thanks Rhino). I brought my other 25 driver down to Phoenix last fall to install a snow plow. Well I bought two early fj40 hard tops to make a plow truck out of so never did nothing with it. So after a summer with no 25 to run around in the forest with I now have them both up north. The white one went up a week ago. The second one is the one with Torsen diffs in it. I really didn't want to use a towbar to tow it but because of a neighbor builting a fence between the garages I needed to get it moved now. I pulled the rear driveline which is something I usually don't do. But because I'm not happy with the way the pinion is set up in the rear diff(can't find shims) I pulled it. After the 140 mile trip all the bearings were cool to the touch. When I towed it down to Phoenix it showed up here on Mud, including the straps I used to make sure the late model hardtop didn't fly off at highway speeds. So I towed it up last Friday night under the cover of darkness. Now that I running a stock bumper I need to get a winch setup so I can pull people out of their driveways like I did last winter.
