    Coastal Offroad Bumper Kits

    Just wanted to add that I just built this similar kit for my 80. It is quite a project. Took me about 8 hours to build in an outfitted welding shop, but that included removing the old bumper and the required removal of some (welded metal) crap that was in the way. And also cutting a hole in...

    Bumper to Body Gap - Coastal Offroad?

    Just had a similar issue on my HDJ80. The gap is even bigger since the flares are more narrow. I just found this out after mounting mine. Can't blame anyone for that though since it was technically not made for the narrow flares. I was looking for mod ideas. I like the design of this bumper...

    Wanted BFG KM2 LT265/70/17 and/or Tundra 17" wheel

    Just throwing this out just in case someone happens to have either of these. Tire can be half used. Really hard tire to find. Tundra wheel is a 17" Aluminum. Search ALY69440U30 42611AF160 560-69440 to see which one I am looking for. Does not have to be in good shape. I am in the Atlanta area.

    Importing docs and keys with or without vehicle? And also 25 year rule

    Big thing is to make sure to prep the car. Has to be power cleaned inside and out. No dirt, bugs in the radiator etc. They are really picky about that for good reason here in the states. Something a lot of people overlook.

    Importing docs and keys with or without vehicle? And also 25 year rule

    If you are there in Japan, then that makes things a lot easier. You can take care of a lot yourself. I used a separate broker in Spain. He was extremely helpful. I would not have felt comfortable buying a car unseen without an unbiased buyer. He not only gave me his opinion on the Cruisers...

    HDJ80 fuel pump modification?

    No that's good to know. I don't mind tweaking to get it right. I just wanted to make sure there was not disassembly required every time. Pretty cool to know that it can be adjusted. Between that and having the automatic idle compensation fixed on my AC, I should have a much better ride...

    HDJ80 fuel pump modification?

    I know I need to read about it, but is it something that is easy enough to get to and adjust? Side of the road kind of thing or do you take it apart and put it back together every time?

    HDJ80 fuel pump modification?

    The Android pin adjustment seems easy enough. Looking forward to researching that. The intercooler is on the list down the road.

    Importing docs and keys with or without vehicle? And also 25 year rule

    I used a broker both here and where I imported from. I strongly recommend it. I can get you my brokers name in Savanna. He was definitely worth the couple hundred bucks I paid him to take care of all the forms and people. It was probably the best spent money of the whole process. He was able to...

    HDJ80 fuel pump modification?

    Yeah I was looking through the pages (and pages and pages). Great info. Doesn't look too bad. And it is good to know the whole pump does not need to come off. Getting a little more responsiveness would be great.

    HDJ80 fuel pump modification?

    After talking briefly with a mechanic, he mentioned the possibility of increasing the performance/power of my HDJ80 by installing a new rod or modified rod in the fuel pump. We were not able to talk about it for long so I have been trying to find some info on it with no luck. Anyone have any...

    Official 1HD-T 1HD-FT 1HD-FTE and 1HZ BEB thread

    I was told it could hear like a "wet thump" whatever the hell that means. I was not experiencing that when I replaced mine. I have Taiho in there now. There are people talking about replacing them every 100K. I can't imagine why. The original bearings were faulty. In any other car or truck...

    Parting Out Parting 91, 93, 94 and 96 lx

    I need the cowl that surrounds the steering wheel on my '92 top and bottom. Grey or Black. Looks like they changed it on my '95 at least so it would have to be the older version.

    Wanted Cibie Round Amber Fog Lights or OEM Round Amber Fogs

    I just got a pair of Cibie 45's on EBay. There is a guy selling a lot of them. Nice lights. You can see the link that sold me on them if you search fog lights and see my posts. There are quite a few Cibie Oscars on EBay too, but as you said. they are pricey. If you decide to go with the...

    Fog Light Switch Harness

    No H4 behind the lights. That would have been too easy. I have it apart now, and found a 8 pin (R5?) connector tucked behind the drivers headlight. So far, I have not been able to find what it might have gone to. I have looked at a couple wiring diagrams. The 5 and 6 pin read 12V when I...

    Fog Light Switch Harness

    My HDJ80 came with rear fog lights only on the tailgate. I have heard there were headlight available that came with fog lights but not mine. All of the lights in my headlights are accounted for. I know most of the 80 series have all of the necessary wiring harnesses for multiple if not all...

    Fog Lights Article

    Yeah I believe I am sold on the Cibies. They actually meet all the criteria I had researched. I am looking forward to getting some 45’s. They will work perfectly. Hopefully that article link is ok. It was really helpful. The Cibie page info was perfect but only after knowing what I wanted. BTW...
