Comments/recommendation from @61Mk+
"I've been dealing with that shop for nearly 12 years, and not once have they put a foot wrong. They looked after my 61, and now my 75 Troopie; they've no problems finding parts, they get the job done right the first time, etc., etc., and i've no reason to go anywhere else. I've seen at that shop, over the years, foreign Troopies, one or two Dutch ones and a French one (if i remember correctly), from foreigners doing their long-range travels; as well, they often have other JDM vehicles there. Recommended unconditionally, and i wouldn't post this without personal experience and trust in them."

Dan Busey was the go-to guy for Land Cruisers for a long time, but after many years with LHM, he has relocated to Utah to serve as an expert / curator at the Land Cruiser Museum. Not sure who has stepped up at LHM, or if there is interest/expertise in 7X Series parts.

Full service shop (body and mechanical) near San Antonio that seems to work mostly on FJ4X and FJ6X land cruisers but they are working on my FJ73 with no hesitation at all. Just an option if you are in or near San Antonio and own a 7X series cruiser. Ask for Cody.

Thanks Steve, I will update the listing

Thanks guys. We (CruiserOutfitters) stock hundreds of 7x specific parts, tie rod ends (LH & RH), mirrors, mudflaps, filters, gaskets, steering, diesel, axle, knuckle, glass, weather-strip, cooling, turn signal/tailight lenses and assembles, etc. We are adding approx 20-30 part numbers to our inventory each week and the majority of those are JDM and 70 specific offerings as our customer base of 7x owners continues to grow. On a personal level I've built dozens and owned a handful of 70's, still have a personal BJ74 and LCD BJ71 & HJ75 here at the shop and have easy access to every model 7x (70/71/73/74/75/76/77/78/789 Light-Duty and Heavy-Duty where applicable) locally for parts compatibility, conversion data, etc. I've traveled internationally to buy 7x's, inspect 7x's for others and spent time in LC shops in Australia and Africa that specialize in 7x mods and builds. Oh, and I drove 70's around the globe twice (Expeditions7.com) which entailed building a new VDJ79 from scratch, getting to know all the mechanical's, weak links, spares needs and global parts availability.

I'd like to think I know 70's :D
