This x100. Frame replacement is long over for those trucks. Looks like its in Arizona though, so rust shouldn’t be an issue. Timing belt and front lower ball joints are the big maintenance items, but looks like both of those are covered.

Yup. Keep the cash for beer on your road trips. Set the cruise to 70 instead of 75 and enjoy the ride.

That’ll come out with 20 seconds of light compounding by hand.

TBH, I’m usually pretty comfortable in coveralls with one of those big halogen work lights behind me.

This. Slow down. Its on a chassis designed in the 60s.

I loved White Sands. I’d do a 9-10 hour trip once every other month if it got me to NM, you’re pretty lucky that you live west enough that thats all it takes.

You forgot rule #1, live where rust isn’t a thing.

Pretty standard setup, I couldn’t do it in my D1 which IIRC is 6-7" shorter. I managed in my XJs a few times here and there, albeit with the rear seat fully out like you’ve done.

Don’t overthink it, just get it done and crack a beer. Thread cutting bolts will be stronger than self tappers, but you can toss self tappers in for now and change to a the bolts later.

Self-tappers on the firewall will be fine. Its a Land Cruiser not a top fuel dragster.

Just disconnect your battery. For short spurts I’ve welded with the battery connected with no issues.

You can JB weld or epoxy it, and it’ll probably be fine. Just remember that if you use an epoxy, you’ll never be able to weld it after barbecue it will more than likely release pretty bad fumes. Two nuts/bolts so it stays in the same shape would probably work better, functionally and aesthetically.

I beat the absolute balls off my 2.5RS. Autocrosses, track days, rallycrosses, mountain roads, offroading (it was lowered 2-3"), ditch hooking and putting gouges in the bottom of the aluminum JDM front control arms. It was an absolute blast. I had the (apparently super rare) Prodrive WR suspension kit on it, which

True true. I’m not using my stuff enough, for it to make a difference.

I have a Eufy 11S and its great. I think I paid like $110 (on sale), and it is perfect for “maintenance” work. I have a dog that sheds a LOT so whenever my wife, dog, and I go out I let it run. It gets stuck on something 1/5 times, but I’m pretty happy with it.
