    looking for some old front springs

    Just picked up a 3rd Gen T4R and building a budget truck. It turns out that LC80 fronts will work in the rear. However, it sounds like there are a number of different ones available, so this is what I am looking for... 19" Double Pink Light Blue White 7.5 wraps 18.5" Double Pink Grey White 7.5...

    Thanks!!! That is what I was hoping to see. Looks a whole lot less like an amphibious vehicle without them!

    Question for you... I would love to bite the bullet on an ARB front bumper, but I have a question... The lower guards/skids looking plate on either side of the bumper, are they necessary? I am really opposed to how most front bumpers for IFS trucks make the front end look like a boat. Yes, I am...

    I believe the OP stated he was using 10 series, and your link goes to 40 series. Does anyone know which one Goose is using? and are the strength benefits of the 40 over the 10 necessary for the somewhat "lighter" load put on an overland rig (i.e., not an industrial machine, only for...

    Who is Familiar with Death Valley

    One of my first solo "overland" trips ever included pretty much the same route you just described. Hunter pass was more of a serendipitous exit from the park, as I swore I would never drive the racetrack road again. It sucks. Anyhow, I had a crude USGS map and tons of supplies, so I just started...

    Who is Familiar with Death Valley

    You can take lipencott from the dry camp just south of the racetrack over to Saline Valley road and then head north. that's how I typically go between the two, but I also like the slow roads. you can also take Death Valley road north and then to the west to Eureka Valley road.
