    Replace those LBJ's my friends.

    Thanks for the update, I think we have slightly upgraded LBJ on the 2005's. Is that correct? Either way, I have a 188k on mine, and its getting done when I get the lift this month.

    To LRD or not

    Slap that bad boy on there! Then run it for a week, Then decide. That's what I did. Mine looks pretty subtle (which i like) with the colors I had after it was applied. Yours might too. btw, I will be adding off road parts as well. Good luck either way. :)

    Another FJ Cruiser convert to the GX470.

After reading thanks to the wealth of information from everyone on this forum. I had settled on what was going to be best for me, and the...

    Lift, Tires?? but a unique reason.

    I’m 40 minutes from Mt. Hood there is a lot of trails under the summit at 11,245 feet. I have wheeled the majority of them in my long lifetime. I have had a few LJ Jeeps and a few other rigs as well, my brother still has his LJ and Samurai. Totally understand the weight thing, coming from a...

    Lift, Tires?? but a unique reason.

    Thanks for the input guys. After looking at my rig in depth, it has a basic 3” Revtek lift. I’m getting some 285/70-17 Bfg ko2’s. C load ratings as well. And I will get chains for the rear as well. But I will keep those 265 studded Duratracs for now. I’ll get pics up Saturday

It currently has a spacer lift in front for leveling and it has the 265/70-17 studded Duratracs on it. Yes, it also has the rear diff lock and A-Trac...

    Synthetic Oil

    For me, 3FE with 164,000 mi. I commute 17 miles one way, 95% freeway. I use the Chevron 15w-40. Oil change intervals should vary depending on your driving conditions period. For my use, changes are in the 5-6k max range. If I hit the trail or do heavy towing long distance, different story...

    Is the 80 the last Real Wheeler for civilians?

    Solid axles... Still better... Why ? less parts to break or wear out. This is where reliability on the trail comes in too. From a basic geometric idea though, the IF&RS setups should or could be a better set up to wheel with if properly set up for it. Including more ground clearance at the...

    Portland, OR / Vancouver, WA meet this weekend??

    I'd like to go but this weather here temporarily detained the LC to the house as the snow drift's were hood high out here... So I pulled out the "old standby" made it to work today late and helped six different rigs get unstuck on the way there. Then on the way home I pulled a 4wd state police...

    Posted by: DanKunz Posted on: Today at 09:40:52am Why do so many people not air down on trails? Good point Dan... :cheers: You know we all started some where, so.... I think some here in the 80 /100 series forum, may not be as experienced as other off road model owners. But airing down...

    80 series gears

    Go with Precision gears, I have them in my "other" off roader. No problems and i have beat them.. I have heard of another problem in our club that a member had an issue with a "Yukon" (Randy's) axle breaking and looked like a material problem. Although my other half has "older" Yukon gears...

    High mileage oil

    I bought my 91' two months ago with 161K. I talked to the Po who had no preference for oil usually, but stayed with a 10-40w and according to him "never" went over 5k between LOF's. I'm running Delo400 Chevron 15w-40 which is one of the best imo, for running a non-synthetic oil. I understand why...
