    Owner must be thinking 2 radius arms and a track bar = three link which I suppose is not necessarily incorrect

    Consider making a bracket to fit the 150A tundra alternator (most common upgrade for 1FZ unit). I know you'd have at least one buyer for such a product.

    3 Range Rover classic

    My Dad's got a '94 SWB Range Rover Classic in british racing green with a factory 5.0L TVR powerplant. Love that truck, I'm sure I'll have to fight my brother for it someday.

    With the Price of US 80's Rising, At What Point Do HDJ80\1's Become a More Viable Choice?

    I wouldn't own an 80 if I couldn't get a diesel. :meh:

    I'd be surprised if HDJ prices don't rise in correlation with the USDM trucks.

    Cooper AT3 XLT

    Do you have a mounted height measurement for these? I currently have 285/75R17 Toyo MT's on my HDJ81 and the lack of winter traction is getting tiring, but I don't want a significant diameter decrease if I can avoid it.

    HELP with bellhousing for A750F to HD-FTE

    Please update us if you try this out. I think the A750f would make a nice and relatively inexpensive upgrade if we can use transmissions from the gas vehicles here in North America.

    RHD - LHD E locker swap questions

    If you go the full swap route, HDJ81 rear is full float with discs; full bolt-in deal. I'd swap the brake backing plates and use the FZJ brakes though. I'm still not convinced it's going to be easier to cut and weld new mounts than notch for a different third on the front, but like mentioned in...

    RHD - LHD E locker swap questions

    Just swap the 3rd members. Much easier.

    5 speed auto

    It's too bad the A750F behind the UZ seems to be a different variant than what comes behind an FTE. Would be a relatively simple and economical upgrade for 1HZ/HD-T/HD-FT powered trucks in North America if the diesel trans was easier to source. Still nice to have confirmation that an...

    Need an EWD diagram of the JDM mirror circuit.

    The mirrors are physically different from RHD to LHD. Previous threads in the 80 series forum concluded that they won't work so test fit before you go to the trouble of wiring.

    Enjoy while you can... you won't be driving like that once you know what your EGT's are.

    Considering purchasing a turbo diesel 80 series

    Yeah it needs a cooler. Trans is still massively oversized for the truck.

    You'll be waiting a loooong time before that auto breaks.
