They have a guy in custody for related stupidity (menacing with hatchet, felony warrants, etc.) , but haven't fully tied him to the Mt. Herman murder.

Ravelcos are put in 7.3l Ford diesels in TX and AZ (where they are frequently stolen). I believe that the device interrupts 3 wires (in various circuits) and is impossible to hotwire. I think they...

Maybe Four Wheeler magazine should have their editor take that quiz, so that just once, they can edit an article properly, and not refer to FJ50s, etc.

You can purchase a remote-control operated relay, and replace a common relay (like fuel pump) with it. Many in the PowerStroke community use this. This is not that one, but shows the concept. Pretty...

Ford makes a special grease for F-series trucks that eliminates this stick-slip phenomenon, and it worked magic on my F350. If you run out of other options, I would try this.

Can the tabs be retrofit?

Yes, but not easily. They were riveted from the factory and doing it yourself afterward is sort of a hack. Spacing has to be precise or the cap won't fit, and the tabs tend...

Marco - given the exquisite build quality you're putting into this refresh, will it be a grocery getter in the end, or will you be blasting through mud-holes with it? Just wondered!

Sounds like nice oil....

In my experience, synthetics tend to leak from FJ40 gear cases, due to the seal design and age of the truck. I won't run them for that reason.

33x9.5s aren't available, really. 33x10.5s still fit within the wheel wells, but you won't be running tire chains.

You get a nice rubber-overdrive out of 33x10.5s. They will be quite 'stuffed' in...
