That's exactly why I got it. Smashed the Passenger side Rear LCA pretty hard in Uwarrie. Figured I'd rather take care of this before damaging them anymore.I just did this before my most recent wheeling day because of your last wheeling trip. Glad I did, the rocks love to jump out and grab the low hanging bits on these rigs.
I received mine Friday morning from FedEx. Opened them up, slaped some primer on them and bolted them up Friday afternoon. You have to bend some metal to your will and allow the fasteners to conform the protection to the truck. I installed them laying on my back in the driveway in about an hour and a half. Good luck!That's exactly why I got it. Smashed the Passenger side Rear LCA pretty hard in Uwarrie. Figured I'd rather take care of this before damaging them anymore.
It was a stuck thermostat that got my 62 stranded in VTMom's day ended a little less than ideal.. I noticed my temp gauge was moving around a bit. On the way home from Harpers Ferry I dropped into an Advanced Auto to grab some coolant and a socket set to pull my thermostat in the parking lot as they were closing. The radiator was barley hot but the thermostat housing was quite hot! It would spike to Hot and then drop down again. And then the garbage socket adapter broke!
So we figured we'd let her cool down see how far we could go until the gauge climbed to Hot status again.. Surprisingly made it until we were about 20 minutes from home and called it quits. Tow truck came and brought her home. Only the second time I've been stranded in a land cruiser and the other time was cooling related... Hopefully she'll be back up and running by the weekend

PSA: Always carry a decent set of tools: sockets, wrenches, and pliers when motoring about in a 25+ year old vehicle...
I know! I used to always carry tools. There's a set in the back now!It was a stuck thermostat that got my 62 stranded in VT
Used to happen in my FJ62, back in the day.Just to check, and Steve would have the answer on this, there is that problem with 62s having a bad ground and both the temperature gauge and the fuel gauge spike. Still happens to mine with some frequency.
Update 3 Nov 2013: The Kickstarter is now live! See here for more details. --------------------------------------- Update 6 Dec 2013: Unfortunately the Kickstarter didn't make it. I'll still continue with development of this and still intend to sell it once I have a tested and proven design...forum.ih8mud.com
