    The "Un-Official" Off Road Trailer Pic Thread

    Driving skyline parkway (Talladega national forest) in May of this year.

    New to me LX470

    Unsure as yet. I'm told they've broken out the ban-hammer to boot them permanently but haven't heard anything official yet. It was very obvious in the video from the following driver just how intentional their move was, so I'm hopeful that will result in some meaningful punishment.

    1998 LX470 Front AHC Strut / Shock Failure Replacement

    BTW this is what your shock shaft might look like. Mine is a little shorter than oem thanks to 'removal-by-grinder': https://forum.ih8mud.com/threads/new-to-me-lx470.1087194/post-12845314

    New to me LX470

    So, for something completely different, I'm part of a Champcar race team, and we ran Daytona this past weekend. Here's an incident that occurred on track (our car is the red/white/blue one): View of two incidents while I was driving - they're related. First time guy rubbed me while passing...

    1998 LX470 Front AHC Strut / Shock Failure Replacement

    For my own info, does anyone have the part numbers for the washers? I was able to clean up and reuse my old ones but I had to use a grinder to get the old shock out and those washers were both badly corroded and ended up with some minor grinder rash. I'd rather just buy new ones when I get to...

    1998 LX470 Front AHC Strut / Shock Failure Replacement

    Jack up that side. Relieve pressure at the module attached to frame rail near that shock - its got a bleeder on it. Open it and leave it open until there's no pressure left. It'll make a mess if you don't use a hose and cup to direct the fluid spray. Unbolt hydraulic hose, loosen the sides...

    Wanted (MLB, FL) 100 Series Flux Capacitor/Vibration Damper/Frame Weight Thingy

    Yeah mine is when moving, highway speeds, between 70-80 mph. Unnoticeable below or above that.

    Wanted (MLB, FL) 100 Series Flux Capacitor/Vibration Damper/Frame Weight Thingy

    I expect you're correct. My mounts appear to be okay but I haven't done more than a visual inspection of them. I'm wondering in my bushing in the rear end could be the problem. Lower links are new but uppers are original @ 156k miles.

    Wanted (MLB, FL) 100 Series Flux Capacitor/Vibration Damper/Frame Weight Thingy

    I'd definitely appreciate it - I'm located in Melbourne, FL, any idea of shipping cost? I'll happily pay it! I'm not factory at all, have home-made sliders installed. They didn't make any difference in my vibration. There's no noise to speak of, other than the occasional rattle thanks to the...

    Wanted  (MLB, FL) 100 Series Flux Capacitor/Vibration Damper/Frame Weight Thingy

    Hello H8ers, I've been trying to eliminate a cyclic vibration that I've had in my 100 since I bought it a couple years ago. I'm hoping someone has this frame weight thing lying around somewhere that I can purchase or borrow to see if it helps eliminate this very frustrating vibe. I've...

    Pulsing/droning vibration at highway speeds

    Actually, I did mean to do the neutral thing recently but forgot. I'm hoping to get ahold of someone's old flux capacitor just to eliminate that as a possible cause, but I don't think that's the issue. Based on the troubleshooting page, it points to Tire/Wheel Lateral Runout, but I have...

    Pulsing/droning vibration at highway speeds

    Aaaaaand I'm back. I've managed to get my driveline vibe basically eliminated - as @abuck99 suggested, I shortened the lower links to minimum, and that seems to have mostly sorted my u-joint vibes. It has not, however, done anything for my cyclic highway vibration. Just to recap -...

    Hidden Winch

    I'm not sure how the clutch handle is oriented on the HF winch, but the smittybilt handle sticks out the top. Open the hood and look down, and the clutch is right there on the right. You can see it in one of the pictures I posted.

    Hidden Winch

    Actually 1MParker's thread has some really good photos of his installation as well. You can see just how much clearance is in there. I did the same as him and ordered a factor55 1.5" fairlead to get some better bumper flushness.

    Hidden Winch

    Of course I didn't get to the pictures until it was pretty late - here's what I've got. Note the side clearance here - It should be greater than that, but I decided to tie the remained of my front bumper support into the winch plate just for funsies. If you follow the instructions provided...
