    Re: Prado Engine Mystery

    Yes, the first FJ Cruiser year models, 2007 - 2009 came out with the single VVTI engine. As from 2010 it got the dual VVTI engine. The FJs sold in Southern Africa where all dual VVTI variants.

    Re: Extremely hard ride

    From what I have heard, aftermarket mounts, be it engine- or cab mounts, usually don't last all that long. The OEM ones might be expensive, but they have lasted you 29 years.

    Sometimes the problem is not the availability of parts, but the ability or willingness of the Toyota dealers to find the part numbers & order them.

    Re: C28 From Swakopmund to Windhoek.

    A little over 2 weeks ago the eastern part of the C28 was quite bad. The road has been graded down to the bedrock and lots of koppies stick out. Other parts have big potholes and deep ruts.

    On some vehicles the left and right springs aren't of the same strength, either on one axle or on both. It's meant to counter any weight imbalances, e.g. if gearbox, transfer case or propshafts are...
  21. Re: List of vehicles with a centre differential and its benefits over a transfer case

    The way I have seen it being used, it's not really about power, but more about the ability to reverse slowly without burning the clutch.

    Re: ARB Bumper on FJ Cruiser

    Strictly speaking, you don't have to. This is not based on experience, but on the following:
    The FJ Cruiser shares the same suspension with the Prado 120, which is about 300 kg heavier. The vehicle...
  23. Re: List of vehicles with a centre differential and its benefits over a transfer case

    Yes, the FJ is not a full time 4WD like the Prado and got a transfer case, no centre diff.

    Re: R350 000.00 What would you buy?

    The 4.2 diesel was very similar to Toyota's 1HZ, also a 4.2 liter 6 cylinder, normal aspirated diesel. It will go on forever, but it would certainly be better suited for on farm use than as a daily...

  26. Re: List of vehicles with a centre differential and its benefits over a transfer case

    No, that would only happen once one random wheel looses traction. Up to that point, the available torque would be split between 4 wheels (instead of 2 when in 4x2) and make it a lot less likely that...

  30. Re: My FJ 60 (2F) - Servicing, Mods, Tuning, and Repairs

    Yes, that coil is the one that sparks in my 2F. It's the right one. The coil is only there to make 25kV from 12 V, it doesn't really care in which vehicle it is.

    If you have any doubt about the...

    I have a higher powered coil, too. It supposedly gives a better spark and my distributor is almost old enough to vote...
