If ya don't know, I ain't tellin'
How hard is it to take the valence off my FJ60? Does it just unbolt? And the hoses to the headlight washers just unclamp? And the headligh washers unscrew? Can I get it off if I just take the headlight housings out, or do I have to take the grill off first, too?

It's the ugliest piece of metal on my truck--rock dings, a bend from a small accident, a little bit of rust near the headlight washers--and I want to clean it up a bit. I'm sick and tired of looking at it. Why oh why I don't want to wait until summertime and warmer weather is beyond my ken.

Yes it unbolts. IIRC there are two bolts on each side to the fenders and one in the middle? If I am wrong please correct me. I fixied it wonce from my first deer colision but have tyet to fix the second.

I took two Fj60 valences off in the last week.
Be careful with the center bolt that goes to the brace in front of the radiator-that 10mm is apt to snap off.
There are IIRC 3 bolts on either side that are for the front valance, front apron, and side fenders. Just remove the bolts, (3 on each side, one in the middle) and it comes right out.
The grill must come off, (both trucks I recently did had no grill), but the headight stuff can stay.
Shouldn't be difficult to do.
Edit: WOOHOO post count=2k :D

Not long. Already hit 2002 before I posted this.
Now I may just leave it at 2005 for awhile. That will be one kick ass year. Right Max? :D

If you think Bailey posta a lot you should hear him talk :flipoff2:

Cruiser, Cruiser, cruiser, cruiser, cruiser... did I tell you about the cruiser?

Best way to remove the lower valence is to hook a 350 SBC powered 40 to it and pull, or do what Bailey said. (my way is much more fun)

Hmm now why could that be. Could it be that whenever I'm around you its at either the cruiser club meeting, at the cruiser shop, wheeling cruisers.... :flipoff2:
