Hey guys

I picked up my first Landcruiser. A 1985 brown Landcruiser FJ60. 155 k miles. Pretty good shape for one in rainy Vancouver.

I've owned several Toyota pickups and currently DD a 1995 4runner. I've also owned 2 Celicas and many other makes in the past.

It seems the FJ60 isn't too much bigger than the 4runner. I thought it was going to be huge.

I just did my first of many more fill ups lol. I put in 91 octane like the FAQs https://forum.ih8mud.com/60-series-wagons/13183-fj60-fj62-faq-start-here-come-back-often.htmlsaid but I later searched and noticed a lot of you guys are putting in cheap 87 gas. I'm wondering now if I should stick to 91.

Also, there is a socket in the glove box which I have no idea what it is for. It has 1 prong. Is that for something custom or is it from the factory for something?

It's called Rootbeer brown (unless it's really light). I've got 2 of 'em. When I was checking out the 2nd one I told myself if everything else was OK & the trouble light was there (hardly ever) it was a done deal. It was & it was.

When I got it home I realized there wasn't a spare wheel/tire. Rather have the trouble light.

Welcome to the madness!

Welcome to many, many years of finding strange things on and in your LC and wondering what they are....

Could be a lug nut socket. My FJ60 has those weird security lug nuts that require a special socket tool.

So I just did some searching and found an old post on IH8MUD from '07 that says that toyota has them (maybe) for $29 and cruiserparts has them for $20 BUT they get really hot, fast. So... Think there's a halogen or led bulb replacement or socket adaptor for a replacement? Hmm.
It is very cool, I'm on it too! I love my old antique rootbeer girl.
