    what is your engine's highway speed happy place?

    I have stock gearing with 35’s in my 96, Sweet spot for ok gas mileage is 2200-2300rpm without getting run over…any higher rpm, I get terrible gas mileage.. 2300 rpm is 71 mph gps

    FJ80 vs FZJ80

    If you wanna go a step above the fj80 and fzj80 move up to the LX-450..way more power, killer gas mileage, lighter, there’s no head gasket, and it’s Toyota’s flagship princess …it makes one feel empowered and smarter to have the best of the lineups..😉

I have 3/8 150’ synthetic on my Warn 8274 and I have 100’ extension just in case nothing is close by.. 80’ of rope on a winch is nothing especially if u have to do a redirect, u will run out of rope really quick..extension are the way...
