    80 Series Bumper

    I know it's a bit of a stretch from $600, but you can get a brand new ARB non-winch bumper for around $850 shipped. If you shop around, I'm sure you can find a discount code for another $30-$50 off. I can't say I know of another aftermarket bumper readily available for less.

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    The ARB and 12k winch dropped my front end about half an inch. Left me with 1.5" rake so I added 20mm Ironman spacers up front to level it out a bit. Subtle difference, but looks much better IMHO. Note my driveway is sloped to the rear, so makes the rake appear less obvious than it really is...

    New Badland Apex 12,000 lb. Winch

    Yep, I can confirm it works in-store, as well. I bought one last week.

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    New winch and bumper. Need an offset hawse fairlead, but I'm going to see if there's enough adjustment in the winch mounting first.

    LX450 Speakers Replacement?

    No, I didn't. There's a video on youtube that shows most of the process.

    LX450 Speakers Replacement?

    I just put the following into my LX. They were cheap and available locally at Best Buy. Front doors - Pioneer TS-G650, 6.5" coax, $50 Back doors - Pioneer TSG-400, 4" coax, $50 The front doors needed a 1/4" spacer to clear the window track. I made some out of heavy duty, double-wall...

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Very cool! Installed Wits' End Useless Cubby insert and RAM mount so I can use all of my dirt bike/dual sport accessories. Also picked up a new keychain. 😁

    August club ride

    I'm not going to make it. My wife came down with sore throat and headache yesterday evening and isn't feeling better this morning. No temp or other symptoms, but playing it safe and staying home. Hope to make the next one.

    August club ride

    I'm 90% on attending right now. Trying to get a few last minute things buttoned up. Rausch Creek is 4 hours away from here, so 9am meet up works well for me. I'm new-ish to wheeling and have never been to RC before. On top of that, I just picked up my 80 last weekend and haven't had time to...

    Local For Sale/Wanted Section!

    Looking for aftermarket bumpers and sliders for my 80 series. Figured I check used options before getting in someone's queue for a new one. Thanks.

    Considering an FJ60 - Thoughts on this '82

    Just an update. I checked out the 100 series and the other 60. The 100 was crusty underneath and the 60 was pretty clean, but it needed some work to get it running right. The guy with the 60 said, "Hey, I have an 80 series I might sell, too, if you'd be interested in that". Well, yes...yes...

    Introduction Thread...Who are you, and what do you drive?

    Hi Everyone. Not new to the forum, but introducing myself here. I recently picked up a 1997 LX450 for weekend family adventures and camping duty. I had a 100 series in the past, but sold it not long ago. My kids loved that truck (as did I) so it was only a matter of time before I'd find...

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Brought her home today. I've had a 100 series in the past, but this is my first 80. It's a '97 LX450 with 166k. No lockers and the paint is rough, but the body and frame are spotless with zero rust. Starting with a full paint correction. Pic below is after washing 2x, claying, and...
