    Anyone know where I can get a replacement H/top for my BJ41

    yes it will fit but you will want to double check there is no rust in the corners of the hard top and no rust at the bottom of the doors. you will also need all new weather seals. do forget to get the bars that go over all the doors, these are ofter lost and you would fit the roof without them

    battery light comes on when the headlights are turned on!

    my bet is when the light is on you don`t have 14.4,,you may find its just the terminals in the pug have corroded and gone green in the back of the alternator and need some spray

    12volt start battery question

    Hi Chaps Lead is lead,,,its the other stuff in recycled lead that causes a problem. Enersys and North Star batteries go one step further than virgin lead and use pure lead and they will take two years to sell discharge,,,your Varta battery will be more like 6 weeks. Saying lead is lead is like...

    12volt start battery question

    hi guys,,,this is my life as many of you may know. 2 batteries is better than one fact. you can argue about pros and cons about running 2 batteries 12 volt system or 2 batteries as 24 volt system forever, and on Landcruisers as long as you still have two batteries there will be little difference...

    hi all we have now fitted rare none split "16 wheels with clips. These are very hard to find and are the best you can fit as split rims are a bit of a pain. When these wheels have the hub caps on the will look pretty cool I am sure you will all agree. We have fitted Goodyear Wranglers to them

    Hi there, I just brought a BJ46 for a customer, its very nice with PAS, 5speed, winch and discs, thought I would put it up as you don`t see a lot of them. It could do with a new soft top as the one it has is a bit saggy but its still cool. Here some pics from France - Blighty from this weekend
