    Hmmm...I'm not sure such a statement exists when it comes to a FJ40...Maybe a looooonnnnnggggg slow restoration but I have a feeling you are figuring out by now that a FJ40 and shoestring budget don't really go hand-in-hand...

    Good luck!

    Let's leave GRAMMAR AND SUCH, as well as punctuation and sperling, out of my response (My attempt at humor). ;p

    Welcome.

    Huh?

    May I suggest a fix to the budget that will need to be tailored a bit to accomodate your new Toy. Get a job at a computer store, and learn how to fix them as you get paid. You will be a pro in about 90 days. I know from experience, as this is my profession.

    Next on the agenda: Get a Haynes repair manual. This is an inexpensive (minding the budget) and indispensible tool that will carry you through most repairs. Then you can rely on the experts here and understand the terminology (again, I know from experience) they use to carry out all of the repairs you will be performing.

    Don't mind me...my DD is currently parked above tools and shoplights, so I have nothing better to do.;)

    Use you new computer skills to post a photo of what you are talking about. In this case a photo is worth about 200 words.

    Haynes sucks. When you can, buy a factory service manual. There are many places to get them and you will be much happier.

    Until then, use Specter's website in conjunction with your Haynes - http://www.sor.com

    Go to this page http://tinyurl.com/qey55, scroll down to the drawing for the appropriate year, and see if you can pick out which piece you're looking for.

    Check out the vendor web site for spector off road (www.sor.com). They have great schematics that will help you identify what you need.

    SimpleSol,

    Not real familair with Tenn geography but there area couple of people maybe in your neighborhood that are Cruiser experts. One is TPI - Bob- who are located in Gallatin and have about all you would need for a Cruiser in the way of parts. http://www.tpi4x4.com/
    The other is Steve at Steve's Off-Road, a Cruiser repair shop that is a long-time supporter of the Toyota Land Crusier Association. Steve doesn't have a web site or didn't and I think he is in Soddy Daisy, Tenn.

    Good luck,
    Pete
