so i saved up for two years and got my first car, its an fj60 and its no car its a rig baby i first saw one 5 years ago on the disc channel on some thing down under after seeing that wheel on the tv i was sold..so ive had it a year now ive got the body down with some freash paint,,, and ive down everything i can do by myself (keep in mind my cruiser is my first and only car i only hope i can keep it forever,,so im readin everything i can about the 2f)
so ive changed all the fluids,belts,plugs,wires,cap&rotor,pvc valve, cleaned it up a touch, im just wondering if there is somthing about the 2f that needs special attention??? i want my rig to run forever ;) well as long as i can make the run til i have to overhaul it or throw in a new one..anything help would be great. im gettin ready for a soa and i just want her runnin top notch ;)

2 things I can think of. Adjust the valves and make sure the cooling system is in good shape. if it were me I would replace all the hoses and t-stat, flush the rad and block, I do this on every new/old cruiser I get(unless it's been done by the PO recently and I have proof, such as the part tags still on the hoses) cheap insurance.

yes there is....the dealer, I only use OEM hoses on my Cruisers. I'm sure you can get the correct ones from Napa as well.....but i have never looked.
