It is true that they check for the smog pump. They haven't checked for EGR whenever I've been tested even though it is part of the factory setup.

Yeah basically all I needed was enough to fit 33x10.5s without rubbing, which they gave me. Also I have to correct what I said about miles, I rechecked my mileage logs and I have put 45k miles on...

On my '71, before my 4 speed swap, I would periodically just leave the keys in the ignition when I'd go to a store or whatnot, how many people would know what to do with 3 on the tree?

Very nice work Frontrange, I tore my 1976 FJ40 down to the frame in 1999 and am now about 3/4 of the way around the lake as they say. To see that some one else has taken longer is a motivator!
