    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Literally posted the pic with it in drive just to flex on y'all with my working D light. 😂

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Look at this! After doing the above plus previously bypassing the EGR and cleaning the O2 sensors I finally have no CEL!

    200 Whp 80 Series...

    By the time you spend the money and time to get this out of a 1FZ you should've just LS swapped it because you're still going to be lagging behind LS power.

    Who has the HIGHEST mileage on an 80???

    I'm at 384,5xx. Wife drove it today. It'll probably be 384,6xx by this evening. We'll have to do something special for 400k but with the mileage we put on the old girl these days that's probably two years away.

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Truck was running rough and giving a P0305 code. Pulled the spark plug and it was all to hell. So replaced plugs, wires, cap and rotor while I was at it. Running like a champ now.

    Put pictures of the wheels you have in yours 80 series

    I like those a lot. Basically almost looks like modernized versions of the stockers.

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    The transmission has been acting funky for a week or two. Delayed shifts, torque converter shudders etc. Thursday night I didn't know if it was gonna make it home. Bad shuddering and starting to slip. Called the local guy who used to be a Toyota master tech. He asked about the fluid and I told...

    Tighter Colorado emissions standards starting 1/1/22

    After 14 years, I gave up on Colorado (A.K.A. Eastern California) last year. I have a very love/hate relationship with Colorado. I love what it used to be and I hate what it turned into. :(

    Everyone talking about rebuilds and swaps….am I throwing money into a pit building up a 240k mile rig?

    My '95 has 380k and has never had any major work done on it. Knock on wood. It'll eventually get an LS drivetrain swap but I wanna see how long this thing is gonna go first.

    THANK YOU Mudders - The LS Swap is Done!

    Probably just comes down to availability. 4L60s are everywhere. 4L80s are everywhere. 4L65s came in a much narrower range of applications.

    Yep. Just start with an 80 IMO.

    THANK YOU Mudders - The LS Swap is Done!

    Replacing that weak ass sunshell is a lot of work.

    THANK YOU Mudders - The LS Swap is Done!

    Good call on the 80 series slushbox. There's nothing "wrong" with the 60 series per se, but I've had a Tahoe or a Yukon for 20 years and I've always started having transmission issues around 125k with basically soccer mom style usage. I just think the 60 series isn't robust enough to deal with...

    Colorado Mechanic for 97' FJ80

    Oh damn. That would suck. I don't know, I sold my Evergreen house and moved early last summer.

    Colorado Mechanic for 97' FJ80

    Call Dave at Lexota in Evergreen. Not sure if he does full rebuilds, but if he doesn't he'll be able to point you the right direction. Good people.

    Taking the plunge on Friday

    It's in good shape, but it's not as minty fresh as it seems to be in the pic. Overall, I'm happy to get it. The family was going to keep it and just use it to beat around on the farm. I was like, please don't do that. Let me kick you some cash and go buy a side by side or John Deere Gator or...

    Taking the plunge on Friday

    I've never sat in any other FJ80, but I have noticed these seats seem to sit up really high. I honestly like it. Combined with the low cut windows, visibility is excellent.

    Considering putting one of these on it just to increase the level of triggering.

    Taking the plunge on Friday

    I have a decent understanding of the nuts and bolts of the overall platform, but I'm about as ignorant as I can be about different option packages. What makes this so interesting and rare?
