    No more depo headlights

    Is there any reason a after factory set of headlights for a LHD FZJ80 wouldn't work on a RHD HDJ81? I took my headlights apart to paint the trim, and it seems like the washers might connect back to the bottom. The water line route might not exist though.

    Noob advice for shopping imported JDM 80's (HDJ81)

    Thanks for the advice everyone. I ended up getting a 92 HDJ81 VX from a import company. It’s insanely clean (pretty sure it’s never been in the dirt). Has the 1HD-T engine, manual transmission, manual locking front hubs, and H4 button from the factory. 119,000 miles on it. The manual...

    Is there a thread on beginner advice on a HDJ81’s / pre-purchase inspection advice?

    If so I couldn’t find it. Yes I looked at all the FAQ threads. Hey guys, I've been looking at, and driving 80 series for several months trying to find one. I've decided to start looking at diesel imports. I've spent hours searching the forums, but I haven't found a "Beginners guide to Diesel...

    Need some advice on a 80 I found-

    Was a northern truck and the entire undercarriage is sprayed. Under the spray there is dirt in some places, and rust in some places. I just can’t tell if it’s bad enough to walk away. The weld joints I’ve checked seem fine, and the bolts I’ve backed out aren’t rusted. There is definitely rust on...

    I think the Cruiser in this post is a gorgeous rig, but it’s not worth $17k. You are probably right, but I hope not.

    The market is high because of uneducated buyers paying too much for rigs, largely because of the popularity of Overlanding, and Overland Bound. The drastic price increases lately are not because the trucks are suddenly worth more. In my experience the people who show up defending these...

    You sir are why the market is screwed up. No truck, sans lockers, is worth this.

    Vehicles do not sell for the sum of their parts. When you bolt something on it’s resale value drops 40-60% on average.

    I did not purchase it, he’s pretty firm on the price, and it’s a little more than I want to spend. I did look at the vehicle, it is in excellent condition.

    craigslist 1996 FZJ80 West Knoxville

    I looked at it, and drove it. It’s a very clean, and well maintained machine. The 4:88 gears really make a difference in pep. Both lockers actuate smoothly, and more quickly than most I’ve tested. There were no discernible oil leaks. Windows, and sun roof opened fine, and sliding rears. The...
