    Trying to fix the oil level sensor

    So I'm tired of the oil level warning light on the dash. Sure I could just ignore it or pull the bulb out but I'm trying to keep things in good working order. I think like many others, the plug has disintegrated over time leaving bare wires exposed. Luckily you can still find replacement plugs...

    How to make rear windows work with tube doors?

With the front doors removed, the master switch is gone and none of the rear switches will work. Is there a way to bypass the master to let the switches work independently? I...

    HOW-TO: 5th Gen 4Runner Brakes on an 80

    I'm still finalizing the last few pieces of this upgrade but wanted to share the details with folks.

    Front vs Rear ports on master cylinder?

    I deleted ABS and LSPV on my truck several years ago. I'm working on a brake system overhaul and I came across something that's making me doubt my brake line routing. Which port on the MC goes where after ABS delete? I had always assumed the rear/side port near the firewall went to the front...

    Audio upgrade for the 21st century

    I was going to post in the What Did You Do With Your 80 thread but decided to make a separate thread since I have a lot of pictures and might be useful for others in the future. Over the last few weeks I've been working on a major audio overhaul. Audio was never a priority and I still had most...

    9.5" diff armor, it does exist!

    Destroyed yet another one of these "low profile" drain plugs in the rear. It was completely loose when I saw it, luckily I didn't lose it on the way home. That would have sucked. The lip is completely shaved off. One of these days when the axle is torn apart I will plug the hole and add a large...
