Default Help in colorado springs or long mont

I purchased a 92 fj80 in Portland with the intentions of driving it back to Texas. My first trip out I blew a head gasket before making it out of the city. Luckily a friend of mine who is the head tech at a performance shop was able to fix it for me.

I decided to fly up for round 2. Truck was running great for a while, but then started having issues in Wyoming. Very low power and a rough idle. I was able to make it to long Mont Colorado where I changed the coolant temperature sensor and swapped the efi relay with the power window one. Neither fixed the issue. I decided since the truck had made it this far, we should try for Texas.

Made it to Colorado springs before the truck died at a light and would not start. Pushed it into a parking lot and let it sit a while. The truck now starts up but still has a bad idle.

I left the truck in Colorado springs and am headed back to long Mont. I can either get it towed to a shop or stay here a few days and try to fix it. Is there anyone in the area that could potentially give me a hand? I am new to cruisers, but not cars and 4x4s in general.

Giving him a call first thing in the morning. How hard is it to change the fuel filters on these?

Not hard, but I believe it is inside the tank on the 92?

"I drive an ECO-FRIENDLY FZJ80...It's got a salvage title which makes it a RECYCLED vehicle. Therefore, don't mess with me when I park in the "Reserved for Green Vehicle" spots in Boulder!!!
