    Winch Install Question: Badlands 12k Apex with stock bumper

    Really big fan of this winch, but it's a space hog and I'm trying to retain the stock bumper and place the winch front frame rails. I've got it mounted but the solenoid box is a beast and won't fit without doing some major fab work. I'm looking for pictures, threads, ideas, etc on places people...

    Front Seat Temp Fix?

    My front passenger seat has the normal problem of moving forward but won't move backwards. It's on my list of things to fix, but I was waiting till better weather since I don't have a garage and hate working in wet Seattle weather. Anyway, I'm going snow wheeling this weekend and a buddy asked...

    Power Steering Overheating??

    Last week I put an OME lift on my 97 TLC. Included in the kit was the OME steering stabilizer, which I also put on. Last weekend I take my truck on a fairly light trail in about 90 degree weather. I would say there was about an hour or less of heavy steering around switchbacks and obstacles...

    Help Identifying Parts

    Shop charge me $750 Also, happy ending to the story, just as I was about to order a bunch of new stuff, the machine shop called to say they found my parts. They apologized and over-nighted them to me. All's well that ends well.

    Head Gasket Replacement Videos

    Just posting these for posterity. Really wish I had found these videos before I did my head gasket replacement. If used in conjunction with the FSM and this IH8MUD thread, you should be in really good shape to do this job on your own. Video 1: Tear Down Video 2: Checking the Block Video 3...

    Help Identifying Parts

    Trivia time! Today's topic: Name those parts. Took the head to the machine shop and it still had some pieces attached. They told me not to worry, they said they'd bag them for me. Alas, they did not and now I have to replace them. I need to buy all brackets and pipes shown in the photos. Any...

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Got a good reminder about carrying a fire extinguisher at all times. Not just to save your truck, but your surroundings as well. The van below caught on fire and lit the surrounding hillsides in the North Cascades on fire. Only one road in and out in this area. We were one of the first ones to...

    Suggestions for North Cascades Area?

    Heading to the North Cascades this weekend hoping to find some nice rough forest roads and do a little remote camping. Suggestions greatly appreciated!

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    I did a thing! Took a rock through a rear sliding window a while back. Finally replaced it this weekend. It was easier than I thought it would be. Told my spouse I wouldn't be able to assist in a number of things on Saturday and when I realized I was in danger of being done early I had to slow...

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Yep, that was probably us! A bunch of Toyotas save for one Montero. We stayed a couple nights up there in the rain and the snow. Tried to take the road to the summit on Saturday, but only got a couple miles before we parked and split off into groups for shooting and snowshoeing.

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Went looking for snow. Found some. Truck pictured isn't mine. It's my buddy Salue's. He's a member on here somewhere. He asked if I wanted to take the lead. I was like, "you go for it, buddy." I didn't know that those that don't plow, dig. Sweating with your shovel in 4 feet of snow is a...

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Put the exact same tire on my 97 last summer. They're incredible. Last weekend in a group of 6 trucks going through snow that was up to 4 feet deep, I was the only one to not get stuck. I credit my driving obviously, but we all know the truth is in the tire.

    Some people will also order rolls of this stuff from Amazon and cut sections to go over their door panels, fenders, etc to avoid "trail rash."

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Right. Just "fix it" with more suspension lift.

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Was thinking about that. If I applied a bead of silicon and left it on for about 8 months (it's a long rainy season here), do you think that would cause any other issues? Paint wear, stains, hard to remove, etc?

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Not yet. Good catch on the small rise on the right. That's why I shifted the sign slightly more in that direction. Full test should be today as the nanny uses it to ferry the kids around. I'm 100% confident that if it rattles, whistles, or just flies off completely our dear nanny will do me the...
