    Tyre wear adjusting rear axel

    What figure are you looking to adjust? I don't see any issue with the alignment of the rear axle, less than a degree of difference side to side seems inconsequential to me but I'm not an alignment expert.

    Ever seen a factory PTO on a 80? Pictures

    How do you think it would be possible for a PTO driven off the transfer case to work with the transmission in neutral?

    different take on the trans mount and skid plate

    I think the LC market could take some cues from what they have available.

    different take on the trans mount and skid plate

    different take on the trans mount and skid plate

    Zinc doesn't hold up in anything other than dry climates FWIW. I've had great luck with black Endura semi-gloss, holds up much better than powdercoat or anything else I've used. I painted the bumpers of my Jeep with it over 10 years ago and they look brand new, can't say the same for the...

    R2.8 Cummins perspective from Diesel Toys in San Antonio

    They're very different motors. 4bt is a fully mechanical diesel, the R2.8 is commonrail making it a lot more complex and therefore more expensive.

    Trail Gear FJ80 HD Steering Kit Owners? Tie rods problems

    I twisted the splines on my sector shaft when I still had stock size tires. I would not personally run HD steering components on these trucks without a 105 sector shaft. I have a 105 sector shaft and have kept the stock steering components. Easy to swap out a tie rod or drag link anywhere, not...
