    Recommendations on Cordless Impact Driver

    Any advice on a powerful, cordless impact driver? It would be my only impact driver for a while, so I probably want to start with a 1/2 inch drive? Unless there’s a 3/8” strong enough? I want something I can get lug nuts off with, separate 80 series hubs from discs with, etc.

    VA Emissions - Cat Serial Number?

    Question for the VA folks. I just get a failed emissions result. The emissions readings themselves were fine. I only failed because the tech said he could not see a visible serial number stamped or labeled on the outside of my catalytic converter. I have a single, aftermarket cat on my 80. This...

    4Runner Rear Sway Bar Links

    My rear suspension clanks when I go over any bumps, especially at an angle. I narrowed down to worn bushings in the rear sway bar links. A closer look revealed that the links are actually being pushed at an angle. Almost as if the sway bar was pushing too far forward. I have a Sonoran...

    Hi Upstate Cruiser folks, Is there anyone going to Logan's Run that would be willing and able to pick up a third member and front axle housing from a guy in Spartanburg and bring it with you? I live just outside D.C. and won't be at Logan's Run. But a friend of mine will be, and he's offered...

    Wanted  80 Series Front Third - Locked

    I'm looking for a front differential from a locked 80 series that I can just drop into my axle housing. I trashed my gears when my diff drain plug jumped ship in the highway, and I'm not ready to pull the trigger on a re-gear just yet. Hoping I can find a stock unit in decent shape. What you got?

    Real Time Tech: Trouble Getting Axle Out of 80 Series

    Almost a year on, and I'm finally getting the chance to pull the diff and see what I broke on my way back from Fall Crawl last year. I need advice on getting the short side axle out. The birf comes out but gets wedged. I'm sure this is because I don't have the flat sides of the birf perfectly...

    Parenthood

    I know it's been a long while since I was really active in the Cruiser community (here or on the trail), but the last couple years, I've been even more scarce than usual. Lest y'all think that's because I've been focused on lesser pursuits, here's an exchange I had this morning: [We're on our...

    Stuck outside Baltimore.

    Does anyone know where I could find a diff drain plug for an 80 on the west side of Baltimore. I pulled over when I heard a whine to find that mine is gone.

    Silly Winch Ground to Battery Question

    Sometimes I have a question that is so painfully remedial that I'm almost embarrassed to ask. This is such a question. When I installed my winch, I used a marine battery that had auxiliary terminal posts on the front. My new battery does not. Any recommendations for connecting the ground...

    IFS Leak Diagnoses

    While crawling around under the new-to-me '02 4Runner, I noticed what looked like a grease emulsion (chocolate pudding) front passenger side. Being that I am utterly ignorant about IFS suspensions, I'm not exactly sure where to look to determine the source. Or even what terms to use when...

    Sanity Check on an '02 4Runner

    Hey, everyone. I'm looking to be my daily driver and to take baby to daycare 1-2 times a week. Based on the pics, where it's lived and who's doing the selling, this one looks like a good choice. Any reason I should stay clear? For Sale - daughterofromers 2002 4Runner Limited

    Real Time Advice - Broke 80 in Arlington

    Drove the 80 for the first time in a while on the way to a doctors appointment. Almost there when I get a grinding noise from the rear end. Only when I press the accelerator (even a tap) but no noise when coasting, in gear or neutral. I left it in a parking lot and walked the rest of the way...

    Locked '94 FZJ80 for Sale - Trailer Needed

    Not mine! I'm helping a good friend of mine sell his Land Cruiser. Yep, it's the same one I've been asking question about for the last couple months, so I'd be lying if I said it wasn't somewhat basket-case-y. My friend Pat has owned this truck for about 5-6 years. He's a dog walker, so it...
