    60K, what should I change?

    I am interested on how to do the procedure on the 8spd AE80F. Which line to pull etc.

    60K, what should I change?

    For regular duty I would instead of 60k do main fluids at 80k, otherwise for light duty at 100k. No science to it, just seems about right.

    Attn: midnight black owners. Help requested.

    I have found on black or very dark blue cars that a black marker pen works great for touching up scratches. Makes them hardly visible from most angles and real easy to do.

    Mystery droning motor sound from undercarriage/shifter area

    Sorry, I am of the opinion the 5.7 has plenty of torque to idle lower at initial startup or run the AC compressor at 700 to 800 rpm, as that is the same speed the engine turns when you engage Drive and can easily drive off. Just a matter of proper ECU programming and maybe an additional sensor...

    Help with Buying - 2015 LC w/ 29K miles or 2017 w/ 60K ?

    For me bottomline between two vehicles with similar mileage (30k and 60k is similar low for a Land Cruiser) is all of the following. In other words is everything else right purchasing a used vehicle: - One or multi owner - Overall exterior (lot of paint chips and/or dents) and interior condition...

    Airbag advice for towing

    Yes, that would be good. The Airbag Man Kevlar sleeved bags kit comes with that around the airlines. Makes sense to buy and protect them for durability.

    Kayaks on rack

    Yes, my setup requires no arm or back muscle work, my main objective. It also has real good control of the big tandem island. Just in one hand the winch remote and the other holding the nose of the kayak for any guidance, which is not even needed. Worked out great.

    Kayaks on rack

    For a medium or smaller size kayaks the factory OEM rack with maybe one or two additional cross bars is probably perfectly fine, instead of getting a full rack like I did for the Tandem Island. The aluminum poles I assembled from 6 footers into 12 feet long each (connecting two 6 footers 1-1/2"...

    Airbag advice for towing

    I bought one of these from Harbor Freight since bit quality was a none issue for the bump stop material rubber/plastic. It also helps keeping the hole center as there is a hole already whereas the hole cutter you show needs a pilot hole. I also rounded of the hole with a dremel tool and some...

    Mystery droning motor sound from undercarriage/shifter area

    Excellent point. You are right, my mistake. Got this actually from IH8MUD but missed to notice the kilo Watt and NM annotation. That changes the comparison quite a bit, although I remain Mr T's ECU programmers should visit Munich, drink some good beer and make things better, yet do not copy how...

    Airbag advice for towing

    I believe the install instructions indicate making a bigger hole which i did to prevent hose interference with the bump stop. The Aussie LC200 project shows the same. Having said that the hose does fit through the factory hole so maybe that is just fine including any bag movement over time. I...

    Mystery droning motor sound from undercarriage/shifter area

    I think you are looking at the wrong curve BLOC. It is the purple one at 405 ft lbs and 1000rpm, therefore around 380 ft lbs at 600 or the nearest questimate of your liking. That is the horse power = torque x rpm and is around 40 HP at 1000 rpm, diesel or gas.

    Airbag advice for towing

    Good question and not so easy to answer; - First we liked very much the HQ19 which we rented from an owner in Albequerque - Seems build quality was pretty good and more sturdy than many say regular travel trailers out there, including the Keystone Passport SL 221BH we ended up buying. - Having...

    Mystery droning motor sound from undercarriage/shifter area

    Thanks for pointing out, I think you are right. After two years and about 22k miles I am getting used to it although it makes me want to shut down the car and walk into the supermarket instead of calmly waiting and listening to some music or forever keeping up with my smartphone and work +...

    Kayaks on rack

    Sleepy, this setup could be copied (yet smaller and fit for purpose) to mount a 12v winch. From a strength and bending prespective probably better mounted on the outside. Together with those PVC tubes in the video I shared above you could have a simpler and lower cost option for sideloading...

    Kayaks on rack

    No. See pictures earlier on. I just showed Sleepy an over designed setup. Repeat one picture of my setup. Very pleased with it and zero back breaking effort for a big Hobie Tandem Island on and off the cruiser.

    Airbag advice for towing

    DPA 200 - for any self install please make sure when lifting up the rear and both wheels from the ground that the front wheels are really well chocked. I did it in my garage and had a concrete ledge of about 3 inch tall so ended up putting some wood between that and the front wheels. Regardless...

    Airbag advice for towing

    Quick share of a trip we did in 2021 to Colorado and Utah in a rented Black Series HQ19 (very nice, a bit heavy and sluggish to tow) and our 2022 purchased Keystone Passport 221BH (I know, run of the mill yet good value for money and with slide out some more space as well as bunk beds to allow...
