    FJ80 to LS400, Build Advice Please

    Thank you for the specifics, sincerely appreciate it and everyone else’s help as well. The two links that have been shared here are pretty much exactly what I’m looking for (tire size). Being one of the earlier LS400s, my 1992 oem tire size is 205 65 15. Here is what I was thinking of doing...

    FJ80 to LS400, Build Advice Please

    Hahaha that is my goal! I know this build is crazy (albeit not the first to do it/also alot of Crown Vic people have done this) but I am determined and will hopefully be able to get this done soon if cost is cheap. Eaton spring company apparently custom makes springs to your liking but that is...

    FJ80 to LS400, Build Advice Please

    Hello LC Community, A few months back I sold my 1992 FJ80 and purchased a different 1992 Toyota product, an LS400. I do have plans of purchasing another Cruiser in the future but in the meantime (And please don't shoot me) I'd like to have some fun with my LS and lift it to fit 28-30 in offroad...

    New LS400 Needs Advice Please

    Hello, My name is David and I foolishly sold my 1991 FJ80 about six months ago as it needed A LOT of work and on my budget it was just too much. I made the mistake of replacing it with a 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 single cab with the 360 which I bought due to it's low miles but the tranny is having...

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Nothing crazy but finally got my 350k mile 3FE to pass smog yesterday here in SoCal!!! I found a shop that was able to "work with me" for only 20 bucks more than the "standard" smog check and all the paperwork is legit, couldn't be happier. I may even wind up de smoging the old truck now that I...

    SoCal Smog Check

    Thanks for the reply. To answer your question: 1. The PO gave me a smog test print out from around 2 years ago showing the emissions readings and it did not pass at the time (can't remember each reading's measurements or by how far off it failed) 2. There are a decent amount of fumes from the...

    Hutchenson Rock monster wheels

    Looks very interesting and beyond cool. Prices seem to be around 400 a wheel which for what you get doesn't seem all that bad. I checked out their website and it doesn't look like they support the 80 series but perhaps another member could suggest a size that would work with modification...

    LC 80 or LC 100

    Can't comment personal ownership experience with a 93-97 80 series but my '91 3FE powered 80 is a daily commuter even with my slim 22 year old budget. 30 miles round trip a day 5 days a week in rush hour traffic (8AM and 5PM) on the 405. Oh, and my tank has 335,000 miles on her all I've done...

    How to get rid of moldy mildewed seats?

    Sorry to hear this happened. I'm sure others far more knowledgeable than myself can address where the water is coming in from but I do fancy myself a above average automotive detailed. I see you are located in Tanzania so not sure if they will have this product in your country (no offense)...

    3FE Troubles

    Thansk again for all of your help. When I was replacing my oil filter hose # 90445-12262 (VCV) looks to be like the hose that was completely loose in the engine bay. I was foolish and threw it out but 90% sure that 90445-12262 is the hose that is no longer on the VCV not sure about the other...
