    Real time help! Front axle broke and stuck in Bishop CA!

    Not 100% sure if the other things are damaged and relatively deterministic time line to get back on the road. Plus don’t have all the possible parts, with the axle it’s pretty much bolt on and go. We finished the swap in just over 3 hours. Granted on the trail axle swap will be much harder.

    Real time help! Front axle broke and stuck in Bishop CA!

    Hey gang it’s been a while since I visited the forum but it has been while since I used my 80. Last Thursday I took the old girl out to bishop for some camping and on the way there the front passenger caliper stuck and cooked the bearings. As the tow truck showed up and trying to position the...

    Dented my inner axle seal...

    Or you can find a piece of PVC pipe or even wooden stick to hammer it in. It just needs a flat surface. Proper tools obviously is the best but it’s no rocket science either.

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Looks great!!! However that’s like the gateway drug, once you got power to the back then you want other things like inverter, compressor and more power, then solar/dual smart charger for your second battery.......might as well order your rear quarter panel Mount from @NLXTACY now. :p I started...

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    My poor neglected 80 has been throwing 172 code and running rather terrible. $50 denso O2 sensor from amazon and 15 minutes later she is back to smooth running again! also picked up a 66 inch tool chest from Costco in the 80, ran like a champ with the new O2.

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    As far as I can tell no, I didn’t want to take off the pitman arm so think the best I can do adjust it and leave it be.

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    I was really puzzled myself that the steering wheel went really off centered with that one good hit. I was under it multiple times with a straight edge trying to figured out what got bent but found everything in good order. One of the first thing I check was the knuckle studs because I had a...
