    Hit by drunk driver... how bad is this?

    I don’t want to total it but based off what the forum is saying that might be the outcome. Not sure if I would buy It back yet or not. I am currently on a trip to install these parts. The 4X4Labs bumper went on literally yesterday. The aux tank is scheduled for Monday. I paid for the tank...

    Hit by drunk driver... how bad is this?

    Haha thankfully I got the 4X4Labs bumper on and am in the next town over from the aux tank instal. So I could get this all completed but yeah the rest of the trip has taken a hit. Thanks for the tips on pricing. I know 80’s even with my mileage are selling high right now so I’ll try to make that...

    Hit by drunk driver... how bad is this?

    Damn sucks to hear. The gap on the doors and everything is fine. Everything closes fine and feels good. The hood could actually be from a non oem hood strut, I recently replaced them and I remember they needed to be jammed in and left the hood kind of that way... can’t remember if it was that...

    Hit by drunk driver... how bad is this?

    That is what I was thinking. I know he’s busy but I’ll just have to stay up here until he can hopefully knock it out. I’m only about 40 miles away, I can probably limp over there in the early morning hours.

    Hit by drunk driver... how bad is this?

    But salvageable right? I am literally on a trip to NorCal from San Diego to get my 4X4Labs bumper installed and an auxiliary 24gallon fuel tank. Probably the most expensive upgrades I’ll do to the truck. Kind of a bummer this happened on this trip. I was looking forward to having the car be...

    Hit by drunk driver... how bad is this?

    Nice catch. Also looks like I took a little bit of damage just behind where the arb sits. Also turn signal is not sitting flush. This is the first look I’m really getting at it. Accident happened midnight last night, didn’t have a home or garage to go to.

    Hit by drunk driver... how bad is this?

    No idea. I was leaning towards it, cops suggested not to. Really took me by surprise if I’m being honest. The car is in GREAT shape given the conditions but it is not perfect and I don’t want to be paying this out of pocket

    Hit by drunk driver... how bad is this?

    Holy hell. How did I miss that. Yeah it’s bent like crazy. Well that’s good news I guess? I’d rather it be there than in the frame? Anything I can do about it on the road? I’m 500 miles from home

    Hit by drunk driver... how bad is this?

    I was hit head on by a drunk driver late last night. Thank god for my ARB bull bar. The truck was idling and functioning perfectly at the scene (obviously I wasn’t driving around much). The cops looked at it and said it was up to me to report to insurance but they probably wouldn’t. Anyways I...

    How am I source old ARB locker seals?

    I’ll have to consider it. The other option is to pay $900 for a brand new locker when all this needs as an o-ring that probably cost $1 new. I guess there is a benefit going with the new lockers though since the bulkheads arb offers now isn’t compatible with my old style and it would make...

    How am I source old ARB locker seals?

    Initially they were gonna give it to me since I offered to search on my own but haven’t yet gotten this info. Tech says he’s looked for dozens of hours without luck. I’ll see if I can still get that serial number today though

    How am I source old ARB locker seals?

    we did and they can’t are being very unhelpful or are incapable of getting this specific piece. Wondering if anyone else was able to go through the same process with a 20 year old locker model successfully?

    How am I source old ARB locker seals?

    My 97 40th had lockers installed I believe in 2003. Things worked great but then I upgraded the air compressor to a newer ARB model so I could also air up my tires. That was neat but it blew the front locker I guess. Took it to a shop and they’ve had it on the lift for a whole month trying to...

    Roof Rack

    When I was researching racks myself on this exact site you’d see a lot of forum members discuss how Gobi regularly brings about lawsuits to small manufacturers or independent people for things that are pretty questionable (small design elements, patent infringement, etc). They definitely have a...

    Roof Rack

    A bit of an old thread but figure I’d post some info in case someone searches in the future. Saw some questions about sound and I can kinda help. Have 2 nearly identical 80’s. One is a build with my bro and one I just got for myself. He had chosen the Gobi for our build and I went with bowfin...

    4x4 Labs bumper, Long Range Automotive auxiliary tank install

    Resurrecting am old thread here.... I just ordered both the 4X4Labs bumper and the same LRA tank. I’m having them installed by their respective companies so instal isn’t an issue. Just curious how you’ve done with clearance and if you’ve banged up the tank at all? It looks like it is angled...

    Imminent HG failure? Or normal coolant use?

    The 97 was recently purchased and the PO was able to show good and very even compression across the board. So I know for sure that one is good as purchase was just a couple months ago and right before the baseline service. I will check hoses but we haven’t noticed anything underneath either...

    Imminent HG failure? Or normal coolant use?

    What’s normal replacement of coolant like? How often and how much? We have two cruisers in the family, nearly identical. A 96 & 97 both with 260k miles. The 96 had the HG done at some point, the 97 (seemingly) never did. Both cars went through a solid baseline service and within 2,000 miles or...
