    Purchased an 80 Series as a family vehicle but who are we kidding? It won't stay stock for long

    Didn’t know this was a requirement. I’ll make sure to try with and without and update.

    Just purchased two from Wits End. If it's bad, I have a replacement, if not, I have two spares. I'll check the fusible link when I get home to see if I can spot anything fishy. Thanks!

    OK, so no mods have been done yet, but I have a weird issue I can't seem to figure out. I thought it was a dead battery, and I still need to get it tested, but it's a bit perplexing. Usually it's overnight, but sometimes it will happen in the middle of the day, and just happened when I stopped...

    Why do you have to come in here with reason and sound advice? After reading some more, I think the most I'll do is 35's. 37's would be fun, but the more I read and digest, the more of a hassle it seems to be. On my truck, I jumped head first into the mods and the truck still drives like a...

    I had figured I would have to re-gear if I went to 37's. Was thinking I'd have to go to 4.88's for 37's. May even go 4.88's with 35's just to have a little more pickup and go. With only 4 gears, there isn't any way to make it an efficient rig in the first place, let alone on the highway, so I...

    All of that makes sense. Thanks! Also makes a lot of sense for the dual swing arms rather than one. I could see the pivot wearing out prematurely with a spare + ladder + fuel cans. Don't tempt me with a good time on external bypasses. That's all I know from the prerunner world 🥳

    And the reason I mention 35's is I'm pretty good personal friends with the owner of Texas Motorworx in Dallas and they upgrade tons of Raptors to 37's. Probably able to get some Raptor take-off 35 BFG KO2's for pretty cheap.

    For sure. I'm not going to just start writing checks for parts right now. It needs a new front bumper as it has a small bruise on it and the rear bumper has some rust on it that doesn't seem to have spread since my buddy had it, but I'd like to get it taken care of. I guess here's a better...

    If you didn't have an account from 2003 I would swear this was my wife. She said the exact same thing! :D I guess my question on the second arm is if you're getting a single arm, doesn't it span the entire width of the truck? You could then still add a mount for fuel cans on the single arm. If...

    Purchased an 80 Series as a family vehicle but who are we kidding? It won't stay stock for long

    Hey guys! I just picked up an 80 series (1995) from my best friend from high school. His brother had it before him and my buddy just purchased a new LX 570 so he needed to make space. I was looking for a daily driver as my Raptor is about to go under the knife again for more work. The agreement...
