    Need help, need stock height spring but heavier capacity

    Yeah that's the plan for tomorrow Trunk. Was just trying to get a jump on if anyone has actually done this and what their result was and if they had any input.

    Need help, need stock height spring but heavier capacity

    I searched and couldn't find anything to help me out. 24/7 I have at least 500+ lbs in the back of my cruiser. It's all stock and will stay that way as it has for the last couple years, daily driver/work truck. I can't figure out which OME springs I need. I want to keep stock height or as...

    Feeler – 100 series lightweight, high clearance, low cost Rock Rail/Sliders

    Boy, these are tempting. Especially since I don't rock crawl anymore... You'll prolly have a PM soon from me. Isn't this mounting style similar to Jeeps OEM rails? Not too sure since I've never really looked too close.

    What have you done to your 100 Series this week?

    Did the front wheel bearings yesterday. 230k miles on them(original). They were shot, I was hearing a bit of hum from them. The spindle was perfect except for right up where it starts to turn up into its mounting base, there was a little bit of scoring there. The thrust washer was also scored...

    How often do you change your Engine Oil?

    Never heard of a single one, Rob. Even to the point that, if memory serves me correctly, we've seen many Blackstone reports specifically state that the 2UZ is one of the 'easiest on the oil' engines that they regularly test.

    How often do you change your Engine Oil?

    Hey, there's no novice BS going on in here. Just some food for thought for anyone that may be on the fence as well. :-)

    How often do you change your Engine Oil?

    Good thing you aren't fixing anything then, by switching to synthetic. You're improving the lifeblood you are providing your Cruiser. It's definitely a good idea for you to switch over to synthetic. It's worth reading up on, there is a lot of misinformation still floating around about synthetic...

    Damn.....I bought a lemon.....

    I understand your sense of concern and urgency but if I was in your shoes and that was the ONLY sign of possible concern, I wouldn't waste my time or money on the leakdown. Very normal to have that build up under an oil cap. Glad to hear you're feeling better about it, because it's very more...

    23 mpg over 600 miles

    Also keep in mind that folks driving habits have changed so much I recent years that the EPA went and corrected (lowered) all of the past fuel mpg numbers that they had originally estimated for vehicles when the speed limits were lower. I was a doubter until I actually experienced it myself.

    23 mpg over 600 miles

    I don't think the 2wd is a likely explanation at all, actually. I think the much more likely explanation is the driving style, which also most don't have any experience with.

    23 mpg over 600 miles

    Absolutely possible, and in the realm of reality. It's very hard for me to 'ecodrive' the 100 series but my DD/commuter is a 1992 Geo Metro XFI. I regularly ecodrive (top speed 60, shift before 2k rpm, taller than stock tires, etc) the Metro and see a consistent 55-56 mpg. If I drive it hard...

    Lubrication/grease points

    I'm pretty sure it's just the 6 spots total between both drive lines. The spider joints and the splines. If you use the zerk for the splines, I wouldn't count on the grease making it to the splines. If you have the extra 45 minutes or hour or so, remove the drivelines and separate the shafts...

    1998 LC with 6900 does TB need to be changed?

    If I was in your shoes my take on it would be, I'll get to it when I get to it. No hurry and sooner or later I'll do it. Definitely wouldn't be a pressing matter for me.
