However, it sounds like there are a number of different ones available, so this is what I am looking for... 19" Double Pink Light Blue White 7.5 wraps 18.5" Double Pink Grey White 7.5...

    SoCal 80's member seeking some trail input!

    Good afternoon! I am generally over on the Socal page, however I decided to prod you all for some info. Our group of avid off roaders/campers is doing our annual January trip and we wanted to do something new. We typically stick to the Mojave Road or Death Valley for our 3-5 day "overloading"...

    Have you ever seen tires do this?

    Pulled off the shoes today to do a brake job. Rolling the tire to set it aside and I noticed this. Have you ever seen this? I would all over online putting in silly combinations of words, but no images match. A little history, it has been sitting for a month. But not on top of the metal grate or...

    real time stereo help, please!

    I am installing a pioneer double din in my '92, and I am encountering a weird issue. I followed all the installs on here; unplugged the factory amp, wired up the new uno to the Metra harness, plugged it all in, and... when both of the metro harnesses are plugged into the corresponding factory...

    Orange/black wire coming from stereo harness

    Hey errrybody! I'm wiring up a new head unit and coming from the small female connector, on the Metra harness kit, there is an orange wire with a black stripe. What is this for? It is on the same connector as the rear speakers, so i was suspecting it was the subwoofer, however there is no (-)...

    AC control issue

    The velocity/power/ whatever you call it slider/selector on my '92 is doing some weird stuff. The air flow increases as you slide it from left to right as it should, however the very last position, or "MAX," has about the same power as the first selection. Any ideas? Thanks. I owe you one!

    Custom nameplate for my 80

    I visited my friend last night to work on some 80-specific products we are developing. More about that in a future post. Anyhow, as I walked into his house he greeted me with a laser-cut emblem he made at work for me. My rig has a name, and it is Lando. It is short for Lando Calcruisean, because...

    eBay Snorkel install

    So, I was on the side of the fence that snorkels were for the birds... That was until I just got back from an almost 800-mile round trip adventure that took me all over the 395 and Death Valley. Upon return the inside of my engine bay was caked in mud and dust, and my air filter looked just...

    AC belt flipped

    Good morning mudders! My 80's AC slowly died (3FE), so I finally took it in to be serviced. The shop replaced the compressor and the the dryer and gave it a full recharge. I drove it for about 20 minutes to my friend's house in pure freezing bliss and then turned off the truck. On my way home I...

    There is a first for everything!

    As long as I can remember I have been a fan of trailers. Not the kind you pull behind a vehicle, but the kind that let you know if a movie is worth your time or not. Anyhow, Check this one out. Ewan McGregor uses an 80 for a get away vehicle. And by the way it is moving, I think it has one of...

    I've got Hella questions...

    Norcal jokes, I've got them for days. I purchased some Hella's a few months back and followed their directions for the wiring. The supplied instructions are about 1,457,234,087 times more vague than Ikea's instructions. So, this is where I am getting tripped up. I want to run the lights when...

    What would you do? I bought the Anza Borrego book/map combo, and it is extremely overwhelming. I want to see it all. If you had 3 nights in AB, where would you go? What would you do? Where wouldn't you waste your time? I have never been there, so I am pretty open to anything (although I do not...

    91/92 interior question

    Good morning, folks. So, here is the story. I have an 80 with a 3fe. I can't tell you if it's a 91 or a 92 because it had been given a blue sticker by the CHP almost 20 years ago. For those of you unfamiliar with a blue tag, it is a VIN given to a vehicle that was stolen and messed with. Anyhow...

    AUX Light Splice-In

    I have a set of Hella 700FF's, with HID bulbs on the way. I mounted and ran all the wiring, shrink wrapped stuff, mounted the relay, created grounds, blah blah blah. The instructions that came with the lights are like this "ekgjhaiduhgajkwenrw qwekrhf;qwoeihrowiehskajfn; A;SKFJOEIJ124." They...
