What year of truck (40/60/62) does that air pump fit? It appears to take a narrower belt than the standard fat FJ40 belt...

WTB - trailer or axles - car hauler

I picked up a 20' car hauler that was burned fairly severely. The frame seems ok.

Does anyone have a damaged/junk/ratty car hauler with decent axles to part out? Or, some trailer axles with brakes?...

Imagine if we had 10,000 members....

I'll bet the opinions of the TLCA members influence that many, or more. How many of us recommend Toyotas to our friends, or help fix others' Toyotas?

I installed solid axle minitruck hubs on my '78 FJ40 and was unable to install the c-clips. I just left them that way. The 'wheeling I do isn't likely to stress things too much in there.
