    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Made some good progress on a 1/2 drawer system. The plan is for the drawer cabinet to be a base for a compressor/inverter/solar/battery enclosure to be mounted on top. Baby steps... :)

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Free is good :) but a couple of things to note about frameless panels. Frameless panels are beneficial in that the weight/thickness of the aluminum frame is removed but that weight savings is often offset by the need for thicker, or sometimes two sheets, of glass to give the panel the...

    270 amp alternator

    No mods except upgraded wiring on both the positive and negative paths. They had some good downloads on their site.

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Passed NJ emissions inspection today ! :bounce: Do you know how difficult it is to get the CAT monitor to set by following the Toyota drive cycle in NJ? 7 minutes at 40-55mph, and then 7 minutes at 35-45 mph is darn near impossible in this state. You can't drive 7 minutes ANYWHERE at a...

    New 80 Series Owner???

    My kind of vehicle :D... Probably a wise decision to pass. Someone trying to unload a vehicle so soon after purchasing it would make me nervous as well.

    Trailer harness plug?

    Nice Work! That is a super clean install! I took a different route with the stock bumper/hitch setup. My 7/4 connector is installed on a strong "retrieval magnet" that I painted to match the hitch. When not is use, it tucks up on the backside of the hitch and out of harms way. If needed...

    Trailer harness plug?

    That plug is not a trailer connector. It is an unused plug for the factory auxiliary fuel tank that was never offered in NA. You can purchase a plug and play trailer converter harness that will end up with a flat 4 plug. Look up your year on etrailer.com and it will give you a few options.

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Part # 5611160070. Cheapest price I could find online was $563 - https://www.lexuspartsnow.com/parts/lexus-glass-windshield~56111-60070.html It doesn't even exist in the Safelite database (maybe as it was only available for two years). I found one on RockAuto last spring and bought it for...

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    It matches the bronze tint glass in the rest of the truck. At some point it will be unobtanium and I may need to resort to the blue tint. For now however, why not match what it came with from the factory.

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Getting a new windshield as I type... I nursed the cracked one along over a year while I sourced bronze LX glass but need to get inspection next month so it was time. Found a Safelite shop that is full of LC enthusiasts that know the right way to install it and they let me bring my own...

    Hello Mud!

    ^^^ This :). It’s worked for the last 85K and as I approach 300K, the 80 still runs like a top.

    Checking oil

    "ish". For my 97 LX the light will begin to show intermittently at 1QT low and will be on solid at 1.5 QTs low. My guess is that by this point (20+ years) every truck/sender reacts a bit differently.
