    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.

    Wholesale Automatics A442F valve body.

    The diesel A442f trans must be different. It's certainly not random. Truck starts of in 1st every time except it you put the selector in '2'. Every automatic HDJ81 (3) I've driven was like this.

    80 Series Aftermarket Gauge Choices & Mounting Options

    I have two of their dual gauges and had one of the spots on each gauge reading temperature (one water one trans temp), both of the temp readings have failed on me. Not the sensor in either case, I can tap the front of the gauges with my finger and the temp reading jumps around and it's not a...

    80 Series Aftermarket Gauge Choices & Mounting Options

    I have one of these for my RHD and it's crap. Nothing holds the bottom of the pod securely. I have 2x Auber dual gauges under my radio right now and I'm also not a fan of those. Hard to read in bright light and both gauges failed prematurely. I have my EGT gauge mounted on top of my steering...

    Heater Control Valve Cable is Seized

    Mine was seized once upon a time. I freed it by getting access to both ends after spraying in anti-seize and working the cable with pliers. Years later and it's still working fine.

    Delta VS rear bumper sneak peek

    It clips into its mounting hole. If you buy the kit it comes with the bracket that can be used as a template.

    (Not Mine) Repost - Amazing Bussman RTMR with Metri-Pack 280s

    SPOD is not solid state, just a well packaged switch panel and relay/fuse housing. Racepak and a couple of other companies also make solid state PDM's, but be prepared to spend if you want one. Racepak is $1800USD.

    Delta VS rear bumper sneak peek

    Used on a whole bunch of vehicles IIRC. Probably the majority of new trucks. You can also get the plug for the back with unterminated leads to connect to the vehicle trailer wiring. Whole setup is really nice.

    (Not Mine) Repost - Amazing Bussman RTMR with Metri-Pack 280s

    I think the solid state controllers (switchpros, etc.) is the way things are going, but those Bussman RTMR's are really nice. I do wish there were higher current rated micro relays available for some items.

    Metri-Pack - Best Budget Crimper and Source for Terminals

    Deutsch is the way to go. Not crazy expensive (relatively) and there are also reasonably priced barrel crimpers available.

    Selling my FJ, is an 80 series next?

    If you seriously think your 20yr old (minimum) LC is going to be more reliable than a new Jeep you've been spending a little too much time on this forum.

    Joe Rogan's FZJ80 build by Jonathan Ward (ICON)

    I asked about the headlights on instagram, they were a customer choice FWIW.
