    Unnamed White 94 FZJ80 build

    I moved the trans cooler to the passenger side and the horn to the driver’s side to accommodate my Warn 9000i that I mounted similarly. It wasn’t too much trouble to do.

    I should have done that, but I didn’t think of it at the time.

    Front Autolocker in Stock PT 4WD 80?

    With your setup and use I wouldn’t hesitate to put an auto locker in the front. If you are ever in a tight spot and have too much traction to make a turn you can pop it out of 4wd or just turn out one hub.

    I ordered something from partsgeek once. They sent me the wrong part. I contacted them to alert them to the error they had made and request the right part and they guy said “didn’t you read the the terms and conditions? We do not accept returns” THEY sent me the wrong part and wouldn’t do...

    Builds '97 40th Build

    Haha! I have Duratracs on mine and love them. If you asked me what I like about them I’d mention how quite and smooth they are. That said the Duratracs are the least aggressive tire I have ever owned, so maybe it is just a matter of perspective. :)

    Fender Flare Part Number needed

    Not to hi-jack, but I really need to figure out where to get 917 -- the square plastic insert that goes into the body of the vehicle at the bottom of the flare.

    Trailer tail light electrical confusion

    The grounds have been checked thoroughly and are all good. Test were conducted with the trailer connected and disconnected, though I don't rely on the hitch as a ground.

    Trailer tail light electrical confusion

    I have brake lights and turn signals on my trailer that work fine, but the tail lights don't. The first thing I did was check for voltage at the plug on the vehicle with a volt meter and everything is good. So, I spent a bunch of time on the trailer. I can't find any problem there. I plugged the...

    Rear Bumper Options (New Member)

    X2 on the 4x4 labs bumper. I haven’t seen one that is higher and tighter. They also offer tons of options for spare tire mounting and other gear if you want that. If you’ll ever have 35+ tires you’ll need somewhere to put a spare.

    LX450 Cummins 6BT Engine Swap

    My understanding is that registration costs in Germany are based on engine displacement. How expensive will it be in terms of vehicle registration to go from 4.5L, which is already very large by European standards, to 5.9L? I'm guessing by your budget it isn't a big deal to you, but I'm curious.

    White Knuckle Rock Slider

    I went with HREW to save a few bucks. Big mistake. I have a huge dent in one where I slid off a rock into another rock. I also spent a lot of money on a pint of color matched gray bumper paint. It looked great until I did a trail with rocks. Now it is all scratched up and I don't have an...

    E1 vs E2-rated tires?

    I really wanted D's because I thought they'd be more compliant, but they were hard to find. I ended up with Goodyear Duratrac's in E and I have been super pleased with them. They get super soft when aired down.

    4X4 Labs rear bumper mudflaps.

    Hmmm...... I was looking more for suggestions for how to design clever disconnects that are out of the way of rocks and such.

    I'm sure this question has been beat to death, but ... want a winch bumper, winch, and rear bumper, but...

    This is what I did, primary to avoid added weight, but I also wanted a better approach angle than most have. Also had the added benefit of low cost. For the rear I did 4X4 labs, because I wanted high and tight.

    4X4 Labs rear bumper mudflaps.

    I love the 4X4 labs rear bumper I bought for my 80 last year. It works excellent. One issue I'm having is my bikes on the bike rack getting trashed with mud when it is wet out and I'm worried about rock chips in the gel coat on my boat when I tow it. Does anyone have mudflaps on the 4X4 labs...

    Taco Owner - LC Curious

    I've gotten as low as 9.5 with the boat and as high as 15 without. Most tanks are 12-13. My commute is similar and I bike. I figure my combined MPG with the bike and the 80 isn't too bad. Before I lived close enough to bike I had a spare compact car for DD duties.

    Taco Owner - LC Curious

    I would never DD and 80 on account of fuel consumption, nor is it my first choice off-road. It is VERY heavy and has poor ground clearance. If I didn't have three kids, I wouldn't own one. That said, last summer I towed my boat to Lake Tahoe and did the Rubicon in one trip with one vehicle and...

    Front swaybar quick disconnects revisited and tested

    I got mine installed last night. My home made sway bar drop spacers are about 2.75 inches and the sway bar hits the driveline at full drop with the sway bar up. I have 2850J springs in front. It looks like I need a 3” spacer. Could someone tell me the dimensions of the Slee spacer? Is that what...
