    At any given time I could probably use a holster for cock or guns.

    You got any cool shit in the works for the 100 series?

    80s first since they donít stop or go very well.

    Better question is, what would the maggot collective like to see for their Cruisers? I own an 80 and a 100 so I am pretty aware of shortcomings on those trucks but I am seriously all ears for product suggestions.

    I have no complaints with my 80 stopping, itís the go that is lacking IMO.

    Once you go 35s and add all the cool guy stuff they get pretty bad.

    And the go is lacking too.

    First off, congratulations Woody! I've perused that shop online and they seem to produce some amazing shit.

    In regard to cruiser stuff, I'd concentrate on one niche and go from there. For example, interior accessories like drawers (there's a product we 80 folks need), sleeping platforms, consoles, door panels, visors, etc.

    In terms of services, it seems like really concentrating on one engine swap and offering that at a slightly lower price via efficiency, parts volume, etc would be a good strategy as more people run their original motors down. Take the 6.0 or 5.3 or whatever and literally get it to a science. Become a retailer for those GM kits to get better pricing and get to the point where if you're going to swap in a GM, it's a no brainer to use your shop based on quality, price and time.

    Congrats

    I have the stock leather seats (FZJ-80) and want to ditch them for the cloth manuals. But the latter are becoming scarce, at least in reasonable condition. So how about re-uphosltered manual seats for those wishing to make the conversion?

    For a lot of taller follows, 80 seats don't go far enough back. You could sell extended seat brackets.

    Probably better than an 80 if you mean leg room. If you're wondering if a 60 fits your general vibe, you'll have to buy me a drink first.

    Seat brackets to extend leg room already available.

    My 100 series needs new door lock actuators. Supposedly the motors can be found and sourced. You could sell 4 packs of those motors with an instruction set for replacing the motors only, instead of the whole actuator.

    You would. And there's room to cut down the seat mounts if you wanted to sit a little lower still.

    Plus the added stress on the drivetrain.

    How much to repair [suspected] window switch wiring where it goes from door to body on a hundy? Was thinking of making a road trip east in a couple of weeks anyway.

    Shit's driving me nuts and I'm too afraid of what the stealership will charge me to even take it in and ask them. Would prefer to support you than them.

    Congrats Woody. Glad you still have the LX470.

    After having toured Jonathan Ward's TLC4x4/ICON last Fall, I can attest that this market is bigger (or richer) than we all think. That facility is bonkers. And you know how backlogged Torfab is on any given day...

    I loved (and miss) my old 1988 FJ62 but every time we're on the roadtrip or up a mountain pass, I am reminded just how much happier I am in the LX470. I just wish older LC owners would wave back once in a while...

    I agree that figuring out a cost effective engine swap platform is one ticket. As these cars get older and transmissions start to fail, I think more and more of us are going to be looking at new drivetrains. And, though I'm a bit tired of seeing all the overland/rooftop-tent /etc stuff (and assume that competition is pretty fierce for these), I think a lot of us are seeing the merits in second battery installs and fridges in the back. Doing installs or having a cheap plug-and-play solution would be rad.
