    Hey guys, I am new to the cruiser world. I just got a 77 FJ40 on Friday. Not in great shape, but perfect for a restore. 75,000 original miles with some small rust. Paid 4k!

    Anyway, the driver side wiper motor mount is broke. The wiper arm is held on by a nut right? Well the bolt is broke off. Do I have to access the system with the windshield down? And where can I find another mount?

    Also, I am looking for a 2.5" lift kit. I am interested if someone has a slightly used system they are replacing. Or what is a good new kit and what will it run me?

    Hey Yeti, there was a guy on PBB that had some stuff for sale and among the stuff was a 2.5" lift with shocks. I don't know if it sold or not. Might want to check anyway.

    As far as the wiper parts, I have a '78 windshield frame from a rollover. Let me know(via email) what you need exaactly and I'll see if I have it.

    Kruzrtk, I am looking for the mount that the wiper arm bolts to. Is that a seperate part? Also, I have found a few lifts for sale, but I am not sure what brand to get. Rancho, Skyjacker, Old Man, Safari? There are so many, and I am not looking to do any rock crawling, I just need a new suspension and thought I would make it bigger than stock. Thanks for your help.

    If you have money to waste. And believe me you don't.
    SKYJACKER.
    So we don't start this ALL OVER AGAIN, please do a search or just browse back a few pages, there have been some very extensive lift threads. Come back with specific questions and we'll be glad to answer them.
