      Camped out in the piney woods atop Mt. Graham for the holiday weekend a little bit of hail this afternoon

      GeoRoss reacted to ARJMN's post in the thread Builds Another LS swap? Really??? with Like Like.
      Next up, was my return to the battle for parking brake supremacy. The park brake has NEVER worked worth a flip on Lexi Jo since the day I bought her. Yes, I know...its a Land Cruiser, the parking brakes are all crrrrrrrap! I was on board with...

      GeoRoss replied to the thread 1994 80 Series Running Hot.
      His is a 1994, OBDI Make sure the electric fans are working. Mechanical seems to be better here though. Aftermarket radiator caps have been problems for people in the past. Are you losing coolant? After all that is confirmed it is down to the...

      GeoRoss replied to the thread Modular Solar/Electric setup?.
      None really, I do something very similar. I never added the ability to charge with the alternator Is the only drawback of my system. A mild PITA that I’ve dealt with for 4 or 5 years as I do a lot of basecamp style.

      Just don't call me Rip Van Winkle. I am super envious of your shop. I'm still working on the driveway and this time of year it is not pleasant.

      The spray foam will also help a lot with sound insulation. Keep the rain noise out and the mechanics noise in.

      Aside from the things you mention, the major diference is engine management. 1994 is OBD1, 1997 is OBD2. If you're leaving it stock, makes no difference in terms of performance and any difference in maintenance is negligible (i.e. a few things...

      GeoRoss reacted to Spruce's post in the thread Possible 1994 80 purchase with Like Like.
      Well it took a freaking month for the feller to get back in town, but I bought it this morning. It's still where it's been listed for sale, and I ended up giving him $1,200 rather than $1k because he started hemming and hawing about the parts...

      GeoRoss reacted to -Spike-'s post in the thread Rapid Precision Valve with Like Like.
      My first impression on the RPV's is that they are a rigid stem, which I wouldn't have on my truck. I use rubber valve stems so they are more resistant to trail damage. The Staun deflators' best feature is being able to install them and start...

      Lose 10 lbs while you Fixed + upgraded brakes…seems like a win-win 😇

      Fantastic, I have my Cruiser Yard booster ready to install. I am going ahead and doing the MC and all the rubber lines at the same time. The only thing I am waiting on is one bracket and for the temperatures to get over 110˚ since I'll be doing...

      GeoRoss reacted to sjpitts's post in the thread Wits' End- Any Dash Holes around? with Like Like.
      My 80 is a 93, and as near as I can tell these Wits' End dash hole plugs are one of the few dash accessories that works for the early 80s. So my question here -- can these be used in place of the hazard switch? And has any used this in place...

      GeoRoss replied to the thread FZJ80 vs 7.3 Excursion.
      It wasn't about stopping distance. All I can say is I had 2 Excursion that need new front discs over a 6-week field camp one year. When we got back to the university I apologized to the motor pool supervisor about being hard on the vehicles. He...

      GeoRoss replied to the thread FZJ80 vs 7.3 Excursion.
      We had Excursions in our university fleet 20 years ago. Taking students on field trips in them was fantastic and I was sad when the fleet replaced them. The biggest problems we had with them were the front brakes. The front discs were very...

      Get a Sienna for kid hauling duties and keep the 80. I have 4 kids and we couldn't live without a minivan. What's the price on the Excursion? I was looking at them as well last year and settled on a GMT800 Suburban 2500 for towing with the...

      Search for my post and you will see what it takes to put 91 seats into a 94. I can't imagine it is much different with a 97.

      GeoRoss replied to the thread Help!! FZJ80 dies going uphill.
      You could have a shorted wire in the fuel pump assembly. In the past this caused someone the occasional cutting out/blown fuse on washboards. I think it was Norcal Doug

      Took some new to dirt drivers out to get some more experience in the White Mtns. of Eastern CA. We went up a really steep, switch-back road into the mtns. The Early Bronco driver is most definitely NOT new to driving in dirt and helped out...

      Yeah I just wasn't thinking about the washers. I found the right ones (at the dealer) replaced them, no leaks. D'oh! Pro tip: don't try to get copper washers at O'Reillys.

      GeoRoss replied to the thread Horn Wiring.
      The OEM horn is anemic. I pulled a Klaxon horn out of an old Volvo. I also wired in a relay. No longer sounds like a mouse squeak.

      It does take some practice putting this up by yourself. My recommendation is to get the guy line pegs for the poles set in approximately right place, get the poles up and stable. Then put the stakes and guy lines out exactly where they need to...

      From this site it states Many places in Toyota's catalog list Manufacture notes W(*66), it indicates that it is with ABS.
