    Looking at possibly going to one of the local Toyota Dealers. Any recommendations or does anyone use someone they trust around my area?

    What year and model, and what kind of work do you need? I personally have no recommendations because I’m only here temporarily but that’s the kind of info that can help the people who know.

    1997 FZJ 80.
    All around maintenance. Short term: Likely Brakes, and installing a new front bumper (I need to purchase a new front bumper)

    I’d take it down to Ryan @OTRAMM if you can drop it off for him. Can you live without it for a bit?

    He’s two hours from me and I’ve taken a cruiser to him before.

    Either that or start learning to spin some wrenches.

    Ryan is worth the trip. Get on the schedule. Or if you want to learn how to do basic stuff on your own, I'm sure there are at least a couple of us who would come up and help out. Brakes and bumper installs aren't terribly time consuming unless we're really there to find problems.

    There are some brake nuances with the 80, especially if your flushing fluid and/or adding extended brake lines. @OTRAMM helped me out! You’re going to get nothing but recommendations for him around these parts. He’s basically just plain awesome. AND he knows his coffee.

    OTRAMM is worth the drive.
