    Load Range B,C,D or E

    It’s too bulky to carry 4 offroad tires and too much work to swap them at the trail. But that’s just me. I had been thinking of something less than e rated, but when a rock garden shows up on the trail...I’m glad I have e rated. It would suck to get two flats and be stranded miles from help...

    Thinking about a GX need suspension advice

    You sound like you know what you want. If you need more background info on suspensions with a lift, try reading this post: GX470 Primer for the Ideal Mild-Build for Under $3000 Most used Gx470 have a front suspension that’s already sagging anywhere from 1” to 2”, so any new front coils will...

    Navigation ECU location?

    Great. I just removed the "MAYDAY" fuse #35 described above and my annoying Lexus Link System Error is no longer vocalized on every start. This is for a 2003 GX470.

    The Stealership

    I've had bad and good experiences with dealers. Miller Toyota in SLC fixed my radiator on the first try and even accepted a 94 radiator from cdan. Repair was a little more than I wanted, but great work and great customer service. Also, cdan has great prices and great customer service and...

    Slider installation question

    Oh, so that's what in those lines :-) I did push the brake lines back into the plastic clip, so I'll pop them back out so they are not touching the u-bolts. I'll also work at getting the 3rd u-bolt under the brake lines to avoid losing my rear brakes. Thanks again...

    Slider installation question

    I'm reviving this thread because it's the one I found on installing Hanna's sliders. On the driver's side, I was able to slide 2 u-bolts under the lines. However, I popped the lines back into place and they are touching the u-bolts. Cruiserdan says they lines shouldn't touch the u-bolts...

    Need bolts for catalytic converter

    It happened again -- this time while parked in a residential area near the train station. They took 3 bolts and couldn't take out the rusted one out, so they left the cats without 3 bolts. This time I'm going to get the bolts soldered and I'm going to get the rock sliders with cat protection...

    Saved by the Scangauge II

    Scangauge II seems like a great investment. It sounds so cool to be able to monitor what's going on in the engine. I've seen on e-bay some vendors advertise the software version like 3.15, but I was wondering how easy it was to upgrade the software in case I get one with an older software.

    I have 7K to build up my 80 and need advice

    GuamBomb, Your list looks good. Doing a 2.5" lift and staying with 33" tires saves you some money because you don't need to re-gear and you don't need to replace all the other suspension related parts required when you go higher than 2.5" lift. Since you want the heavy suspension, then you...

    front speaker replacement with 5 1/4 inch speaker

    Front doors: Alpine SPS-130A, 5 1/4", 92dB, 30w RMS, $55/pair That was the price from 2 years ago w/free shipping. These were 2-way speakers and the top mount was 1 15/16 or essentially 2-inches deep. I cut some synthetic wine corks to about 3/8" in length and used them as spacers to fit...

    Stock Location Mounted Powered Sub (bolt-on) and New Stereo

    So, how exactly is the new subwoofer wired? Did you completely bypass the stock amp?

    front speaker replacement with 5 1/4 inch speaker

    I replaced my front speakers with Alpine's 5 1/4 and they were much better than the stock speakers. I was able to reuse the stock grills. I also replaced the speakers on the back doors 4" Alpines, but those didn't make much of a difference as replacing the fronts. I'm still using the stock head...

    Trail Riding + Towing

    There are at least 3 gas stations inside Death Valley at Panamint Springs, Stovepipe Wells, and Furnace Creek. You can also get good info at DeathValley.com especially with the experts in the DV Talk Forum. As others have mentioned, the reason to get an 80 is to drive in relative comfort to...

    Another FJ 80 bite the dust...Headgasket??

    The same thing happened to me. Switched from green to red and shortly after, the 80 started overheating. It would overheat within 5 minutes of starting. I had to replace the radiator. Apparently, the radiator shop said that it was clogged with gunk and they recommended that I replace it. I...

    62 owner looking for advice on an 80. Good deal?

    Don't know the truck nor the dealer, but that's a shiny 80 with the rare chrome door handles and mirrors -- even matches the chrome logos. If everything checks out, that's a great price for this low miles truck. No lockers per K292 code and no magic dial in the front.

    short bus vs. ARB

    This is an interesting post. The new vs. the old. The ARB is the old standby with the history to back it up. The ShortBus is the new kid on the block -- young, good looking, lightweight -- but not as much history. I keep going back and forth on which one to get. I'm sold on the ShortBus looks...

    Choices, What would you Buy??

    The 94 fits your needs better than the 91, but in order to figure out which one is a better value you need to include the price. Most people would buy the 94 just because it has f/r lockers. Make sure they work.

    Builds DMC South America Expedition and ROTW write-up

    So, is this mainly an expedition rig as opposed to a rock crawler? Seeing your photos and reading about your adventures makes me want to quit my job, sell the house, and go on my own adventure. Very cool. Maybe by the time I'm ready, you can sell me your rig :-)
