    22RE Timing chain cover internal coolant leak from front of cover.

    Have had a slow coolant leak that I have been unable to track down. Occasionally, I top off my coolant reservoir. This morning I checked my oil and it was suddenly a quart high and milky and the coolant bottle was empty. Pulled the valve cover and looked down to make sure the timing chain/guides...

    Hello, This is the the official 2018 Rubithon Thursday Breakfast Morning thread. It would be nice to get to know each other a little better before joining up on the trail.

    Free FZJ80 front elocker axlehousing.

    A while back I picked up a free axle housing which I proceeded to reinforce and armor. I installed the new housing and I have the original axle housing from my 80 free for the taking. It would make a great "core" for an upgraded 80 axle or to replace a bent housing. Paying forward the free...

    Joey make a better version of this radio hanger please!

    I am not a radio guy. I do use a handheld ham and cb on the trail. I'm not going to do a permanent install and when doing urban (park in the city mode), I like to return my 1993 Cruiser to "stock mode". I hate when my radios are bouncing around on the trail. With a couple different dashboards...

    LSPB valve or Wilwood proportioning valve?

    This topic has been beat to death. My valve works well and doesn't leak and I don't like messing with plumbing. The lift, spring rate, travel, tire size do make the silly spring rod difficult to adjust at best. This was a 1/2 banana "fab" job at worse. I will let the pictures do the rest of the...

    cheap drawer/shelf with plywood fridge slide

    Design parameters. The third row seats are often used to haul kids or the cargo area is used to haul bulky items and the Cruiser is only used in "expedition mode" several times a year so the "system" will be easily installed or removed. The drawers do not need to be a sleeping platform. The...

    Watched forum email notification only once per day?

    Woody, is it still possible to watch a forum but only receive one email notification per day that lists new/updated threads rather than getting multiple email notifications all day?

    Good reason to change headgasket before it blows

    Do they still show pictures of bloody victims of traffic accidents to scare new drivers into safer driving? :rolleyes: Well here is the headgasket version. :whoops: By now, everyone should know to change their headgasket. I am the third owner of a 1993 fzj80. I bought it with 146,000 miles. The...

    rth, head gasket blown, towing, local mechanic or machinist for diy

    198, 000 miles and my head gasket blew. Catastrophically failed actually. No Question about when the temperature pegged and started missing and tons of sweet white steam poured out the exhaust. This happened on the way to the Rubicon so at least it happened on the road and not in the middle of...

    Wentworth Springs (Rubicon) Memorial Day 2012

    The date is May 25th until May 28th. This is an early season jaunt on the Rubicon trail from a "base camp setting". Most any rig or high clearance 2wd should be able to access the campground. (hint: That means you may be able to drive your stocker 80 but walk/ride along the short section of...

    Hollister 02-05-2012

    I promised my son we would go wheeling tomorrow, 02-05-2011. Is there any place closer to the SF Bay Area than Hollister? Not looking to drive up to the mountains. It is not the most exciting place but at least is a place to exercise the lockers. We will be driving the 80. We will plan on...

    leaky front dif

    I was changing the front brake pads and noticed that my front diff seems to be leaking. It does not appear to be leaking from behind the dust shield but seems to be coming out of the flange. At first I thought it was grease from the u joint. Does oil from a leaky pinion seal typically work its...

    post rubithon armor piks.

    2011 Rubithon was most excellent. We had a great time. The 80 is a big wide low rig to scrape through the trail. I have posted some photos of the scrapes on the armor so that if you are thinking about driving this trail you might know what to expect. We drove our factory locked 93 with no...
