    Odd E-locker Trouble

    I've looked at the threads and can't seem to find a similar issue as what I'm running into. (I have the 7-pin mod and the center diff lock switch installed. For your reference.) When I engage the center diff lock and then try to engage the rear diff, it won't engage and stay engaged if there...

    Synthetic winch line - Possible group buy

    I am looking at purchasing some synthetic winch line for my 12K winch. The correct load rating for that would be 24k minimum average breaking strength (for when you use a snatch block; doubles line load). The closest synthetic line size is 1/2" (12mm) which has a minimum breaking strength of...

    Winter Work

    Well, after a great trip to SMORR for the TAC event, the 80 needed some love. Apparently during the summer they had 30" of rain in a week and it greatly changed all of the trails. So, I ended up on a few that didn't like the 80's body too much. That and it needed some rust work.... Oh, and I...

    Non-wheeling 4x4 event

    I was approached last week about any interest from the "Toyota" world in regards to a non-wheeling event in Waterloo. It would be put on by a local group and held at the National Cattle Congress grounds. It is scheduled for the weekend before Tall Corn this year. I thought maybe we could have...

    new goodies....

    So, about a month ago, the gas door fell off in my hands while filling up. So I needed to order a new one and while I was at it I ordered a CDL switch for my 80. So it finally got here and I got it installed. Works great! No pics. (Just imagine a black rectangular button... :flipoff2:) Now...

    93 transmission question(s)

    A little history.... I purchased a '93 fzj a little over a year ago and about 6 months later I began to notice some "slipping" issues. Fast forward to early december of 08. I had the transmission replaced with a used 100K unit. None of the previous issues exist anymore, but I have a few new...

    '93 Transmission Q's

    About a month ago I joined the 80 club and now I'm in the process of doing pm stuff. My transmission has been acting up as it shifts from 1st to 2nd gear. It either has a second or so lag while shifting or slips out momentarily after it changes gears, but only between 1st and 2nd. I've...

    Knuckle servicing

    If one was to order a kit from MAF or another vendor, is that all you need for parts to service the knuckles on a 60. My 60 has 150,xxx on the clock, so I would assume that it would probably be best to replace the bearings? I know someone who has tools, so that isn't an issue. Also, does...

    Help. Gassy smell in cab and engine bay

    There is a strong gasoline odor coming somewhere from my 60 series. I followed the fuel line from thegas tank to the carb and there were nor leaks. When idling at a stop light or even driving slowly, the odor is sucked into the cab. At highway speeds it goes away. With the garage door shut it...

    Locking Diffs

    So, here's my question. 80's series can lock both the front and rear diffs if they have the elec. lockers or an aftermarket locker. And if you put the correct switch in, you can have a selectable center diff as well..... So, with the 60 series transfer case, is it locked (50/50 power split)...

    80 Series options and standards

    I read that ALL 80 series built for the U.S. for 94 and later had diff. locks as a standard feature, not an option.... Is there any validity to this? The source was If it is true, that would make looking for a locked cruiser easier..... Thanks, Blue 60

    Roof Rack Mounts

    I know that several roof rack companies sell their own mounts for their racks and that the general concensus is that Quick & Easy makes a really great product, but what has been your experience with Thule mounts? How much weight or what have you thrown on them? (I know that I could probably go...
