    Central AR Mechanic Recommendation

    I've got an oil leak that I'm trying to track down and fix and I need help from someone who knows the 1FZ and 80's in general. Any recommendations? Nature of the issue - I've got oil pooling on the engine under cover. In the 9 years that I've owned this rig (roughly 40K miles) the VCG, Disty...

    Professional reupholster vs. Lseat for my 97

    Ha. Yeah, of all the shops I called, only one said he would use leather. The rest were pushing the vahnnel.

    @MPS Thanks, I appreciate it. @rdcnj I wouldn't count on it. Solid feedback, thanks to all who shared.

    Professional reupholster vs. Lseat for my 97

    @MPS Great recommendation. I'm going to look into this. Depending on how much they'll charge for labor, this looks like a very good option, assuming the kit fits well? Have you seen any of these kits installed, in person?

    Professional reupholster vs. Lseat for my 97

    Thanks for the thoughts and feedback. I am leaning towards the professional work, but would love to get some more feedback on the Lseats. @wizmariefa I appreciate that. My other concern as mentioned in this thread is that they will be loose when I'm done. @tacocat I think I could manage, but I...

    Professional reupholster vs. Lseat for my 97

    I've got a ballpark quote for $2,500 from an auto upholstery shop in town...he's checking the prices to give me a final number, thinks it will be in that range for the front seats and 2nd row, genuine leather. In fact the pricing he's checking on is for the entire hide. In comparison, it looks...

    Ouachita NF Intel

    Still relatively new to the area and want to get off the pavement this weekend and do some exploring in Ouachita NF. Hoping to get some insights into specific areas that we can get off the road, away from other cars/people and maybe even find some streams or small rivers to access that hold...

    Introduce yourself!

    Hi my name is Josh. Moved to Little Rock from California a few months ago. My wife is originally from Conway and she decided it was time to come home. Have a pretty stout 1997 FZJ80 that I built up over the course of a few years out there, including: OME 2.5" lift (with 25mm trim packers, gets...

    I'll keep you posted on the first guy. If you are running the stock wheels, check to see if these tires would fit.

    For Sale 5 - 285/75/16 BFG AT KO's

    I'd check with the 60 guys, but my sense is it would be fine. I'm about 15 mins north of the GG Bridge. Patch is on the flat part of the tire, under the tread, nowhere near the sidewall. Ran these tires for 7 months with the patch. Done by a reputable tire shop, no issues. Sale of these...

    For Sale  5 - 285/75/16 BFG AT KO's

    My build took me in the direction of larger tires, so I'm selling my 285's. I'd estimate 5K miles put on these. Wheeled on them once. Lot's of tread left, see pics (sorry if one is sideways). I can try to get a tread measurement if needed, but pics should give you the scale. Spare is well used...
