    Is this 80 a parts car or worth fixing up? (newbie intro)

    Take it from a guy who just "restored" a 97, one that was in great shape mechanically, didn't have rust but was in terrible shape aesthetically. You will get killed on it, death by a million cuts. It would be cheaper and infinitely less headache to just spend extra for one in good shape...

    Mounting Maxtrax to a factory roof rack

    I don't have maxtrax but I have traction boards which I mounted to the stock roof rack, they came with really easy to use mounting brackets. I drilled holes into the traction boards to make it so that I could use the brackets diagonally and I put one on each cross bar. They are very solidly on...

    Had to crank her way too long to turn over and then stumbling idle.....now dying while driving

    Alright boys so found some funky stuff going on here. I spliced that sensor and all was well but me being the jackass I am with a fruitless obsession of having everything perfect on a quarter century old truck I had to spring for a replacement sensor. Popped her on and all was well again...

    Window won't roll-up when weather is cold or wet.

    I did mine and it fixed all my window issues which I was convinced it wasn't the cause of, it was. You don't have to take the windows out to do it, once you get it in as deep as you can you can reach in through the port holes and pull it down the rest of the way with a pair of pliers. Pretty...

    Please share your story as to how you came into your 80. #longlivemy80

    September of 2000 I was 16 and had a lot of savings, I had been working in my family's businesses since I was legit 5 years old. My cousin had a dealer license and I went with him to the dealer auction to get a car. I honestly wasn't a car guy yet at all, I knew a little basic stuff but not...

    Has anyone successfully traded their truck for a different truck?

    I don't want two trucks, I already have a fun car I don't want a third car. Two is messy enough for me. I had a 2016 and a 2020 GX, amazing trucks silly reliable and so nice to drive but I'm not sure if I want another one. They're not timeless to me, an old GX is just an old car to me whereas...

    I want to do the tranny fluid exchange but I don't know what is in there.....

    I want to do the tranny fluid exchange but I don't know what is in there.....

    Hi all, just doing maintenance on the truck as I am incredibly cautious with this thing. Oil changed, got everything greased and I want to do the gallon in gallon out of the tranny fluid. Problem is I don't know what is currently in there, don't know what the previous owner used. Does that...

    Has anyone successfully traded their truck for a different truck?

    No thanks I got some charizards! You're right, when I sold my old one I wasn't even asking for trades and I sure got some goofball offers....

    Has anyone successfully traded their truck for a different truck?

    Valid points and that's exactly what I'm doing it's my daily driver, even though it's all built up. It's not about gas, it's 26 years old and I'm driving it like it's some new disposable daily vehicle. Not to say that a 200 series is disposable but it's much more viable than daily driving a 26...

    Did you just post it generally online looking to specifically trade or did it just work out that way?

    Has anyone successfully traded their truck for a different truck?

    I'm mulling over moving on from my truck, I bought it thinking I would go camping and hit trails and do all this other outdoorsy crap that it was made for and I have done absolutely none of that and the way things have changed with my business I will not be doing any of it for the foreseeable...
