    Builds 1997 FZJ80 to HDJ80 1HDFT + Wholesale Automatics Extreme A442F

    @SNLC and I have a pretty lengthy project list as of last night. We are far enough along that I can start ordering some stuff. So I woke up this morning and got a @TrekboxX System Alpha setup on the way to Idaho. Anyone got any recommendations for what size fridge to use? I’ve had ARB’s in the...

    Builds Building the dream (PZJ77)

    I like the R151 in my truck a lot. Much more enjoyable to drive. Made me want to do low range gears though in the transfer case because low range was not saying much.

    Picked up the truck from the shop this morning. Waiting on a few details before I get into any tech. But I am really pleased with this fuel pump upgrade. The sound is noticeably different - much quieter than the original pump. It is now just a very low hum. And the transfer speed is pretty...

    @Workhorse I really wanted to make this happen. But the prior shop removed the sticker and it went missing. That sucks because the sticker was in really good condition. I am sure that @SNLC and I will figure something out.

    The truck was picked up this morning to begin a short little 2400 mile journey to @SNLC in Idaho. Ian and I have gotten to know each other pretty well since he built out my PZJ77 last Fall. We have been discussing another build and I think it just makes since to send this out to him given its...

    @CharlieS that is generally it. When the switch stopped working to begin with I wrongly assumed it was just some cheap accessory switch LRA tossed in with the tank. That’s not a knock against LRA but you know what I mean. Turns out there is actually a lot more to the switch than meets the eye...

    @CharlieS in one of my posts above I shared that we ultimately did not wire into the Switch Pro unit after some discussions with the shop and @orangefj45. I think post 149.

    The pump is something that Slee provided through @Eric Sarjeant. It came as a kit with hoses, brackets, clamps, etc. There is really nothing wrong with the pump that came with it but this one is just quieter and a little quicker. My pump actually was not dead.....the switch just did not have any...

    I finally got around to getting this rig up to the shop. So here is what happened. The switch is fine....there was a wiring issue causing the non-power. That did not really matter because I really wanted to get this new pump installed and see how it works. Shout out to @orangefj45 for some...

    Builds 1993 PZJ77 - The Evolution Continues

    The windshield and windows have been pulled! My biggest fear was that we would discover some rust. Happy to report that everything was clean as could be and no rust present. This is going to be a really nice truck.

    80 vs 70 series differences

    @undecided so I current own a 77 series and a couple of 80 series. I’ve owned numerous other 70 series and 80 series (as well as everything else but the 55’s). This is not an easy answer. @SNLC is actually about to take delivery of one of my 80 series that is getting a 1HDFT swap. If I HAD to...

    Builds 1993 PZJ77 - The Evolution Continues

    Like a snowball this project just keeps expanding. I sent this truck back with @ca18sean with really one thing on the list - slap on that Kaymar bumper I bought from @joekatana last fall. Sean mentioned in passing that he had a good painter who may be able to fix a couple of issues on the truck...

    This thread should see some increased tech in the coming weeks. The truck is going to take a little trip to “finishing school.” Currently lining up some logistical issues and off she will go. The thread will see a lot of activity as this project accelerates toward the finish line. Plus, I am...
