1978 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser Frame off restoration (March 2015)........Please read carefully:1978, the last year of the classic round bezel and most sought after in those models. The restoration started with a cosmetic overhaul after all mechanical checks and maintenance. The whole truck was disassembled piece by piece and attended to. The rear tub was replaced with an aluminum aqualu tub upgrade ($5000) manufactured in Canada........no worries of ever rusting! (The FJ tubs were susceptible to rust especially at the rocker panels, rear sill, and rear quarters due to poor quality sheet metal.) All new Toyota OEM replacements were used when available. Engine bay is all original with the exception of the carburetor which is a Weber. If you are a purist, I can easily put an original one back on. Engine fires right up without the need of the choke. The original 2F 4spd engine has less than 100K miles, runs extremely strong, and cruises comfortably down the road. All cylinders passed compression tests. All smog components are still in tact (just not attached). Truck runs a lot better and breathes better without this increasing hp. This can be easily reconnected if your state requires it (CA). I had my friend who is a master Toyota tech for Town and Country Toyota (Charlotte) spend 4 weeks fine tuning this vehicle. Tires are all new 33" BFG Mud Terrains. Just added a new Optima battery and muffler. All new OEM weather stripping, emblems, correct stainless steel hardware, door run channels, etc. Seats have been re-upholstered with all new CCOT leather covers exact to Toyota specs. Suspension includes a 3.5" lift kit with OME springs and RC shocks. The original radio in dash was left for classic appeal and value, but a JVC Bluetooth CD player was added in addition to a Tuffy console box. The 3 Stage paint is absolutely perfect........no expense spared on the meticulous paint job.

Toyota recalling 615k Sienna models over rollaway risk

Thu, 26 Sep 2013

Toyota has announced a recall affecting approximately 615,000 Sienna minivans due to a possible rollaway risk. All of the vehicles in question are from the 2004, 2005, 2007, 2008 and 2009 model years.
In an official statement, the automaker states that the problem stems from the vehicle's shift lever assembly. "Because of the potential for damage to the shift lock solenoid installed in involved vehicles, there is a possibility that the shift lever could be moved out of the 'P' position without the driver depressing the brake pedal," Toyota said. Because of this fault, the affected Sienna models could roll away without warning, increasing the risk for a crash.
Owners will be notified via first class mail, and the affected Sienna models can be taken to Toyota dealerships to have the shift lock solenoid replaced with a new one. Have a look below for the automaker's official release.

Toyota settles complaints with states Attorneys General for $29 million

Thu, 14 Feb 2013

Toyota announced today that it has reached a settlement with the Attorneys General of 29 states and one US territory that will resolve their complaints relating to recalls performed by the automaker from 2005-2010, including those related to sticky accelerators and malfunctioning floor mats that may have contributed to cases of unintended acceleration.
The settlement includes a payout of $29 million to be divided among the states and US territory, as well as a commitment from Toyota "to take steps to make vehicle information more easily accessible to consumers to help them operate their vehicles safely and make more informed choices." The settlement also has Toyota continuing its rapid-response service teams and quality field offices that were put in place shortly after the largest of the recalls from 2010, as well as a "range of customer care amenities for owners of vehicles subject to certain recalls," though the press release below isn't specific about what those amenities might be.
This settlement marks the second major step in the last few months that Toyota has taken to settle legal disputes surrounding the unintended acceleration recalls, the first being a $1.4 billion settlement to address economic loss suffered by owners of current and past Toyota vehicles that may have lost value on account of these recalls.

Toyota SEMA concepts promote active lifestyles, rallying [w/video]

Thu, 31 Oct 2013

Toyota has six vehicles that it's bringing to the Specialty
Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show next week, all of which were developed by and for people who live active lifstyles. Four of them are the result of the Toyota Dream Build Challenge, which tasked a team of athletes and vehicle customization shops to build Toyota sedans, pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles in seven weeks that would enhance performance in their respective sports.
We'll lead off with the CamRally Camry, developed by NASCAR driver Parker Kligerman, Kyle Busch Motorsports and Mooresville, NC shop Detroit Speed, Inc. for the Dream Build Challenge, because it appeals to us gearheads (sure, call us one-sided). It was totally transformed into a rally vehicle, and it has to be the most badass Camry we can remember seeing. The sedan is always a bit flaccid-looking in stock form, but the CamRally's wide body and other exterior upgrades and the turbocharger make us forget about that, as do its stripped, painted interior and Sparco race seat.
