    Gearing for Tire Size

    37s and 5.29s are a great combo. I can do 80 in my 80 all day, assuming I don't hit any big hills.

    Atmospheric river interior

    I feel your pain. I have to drive my 97 around every couple days with the carpet peeled up and the heater blasting just so it doesn't start to stink. It's probably a good time for me to go outside and check some drains while the rain is on pause.

    What did you get your 80 for Christmas?

    My 80 got a RedHead steering box with 105 sector shaft, thanks to @orangefj45 & Valley Hybrids. That's one less thing making noise on my truck.....

    Hyperflex Arms and Superior Links for my 80 Series Review.

    Yup. I looked at putting a 3-link in the front, but "more might not be better" was definitely a consideration. So far this setup seems more balanced, with the front performing as well as the rear. But I do need to spend some time on the coils and bumpstops to make sure everything is playing...

    Hyperflex Arms and Superior Links for my 80 Series Review.

    I agree 100%. But my point being - I don't think I was ever able to have it flex enough for the coil to unseat with the stock radius arms. The Ironman coils are relatively short and stiff, so I'd like to replace them with a 4" lift coil with greater free length.

    Hyperflex Arms and Superior Links for my 80 Series Review.

    I wonder this also, and I just installed them on my truck. :rofl: They do seem to accomodate the full range of travel I have in the front. I have Ironman 4x4 45683LFE1 shocks (~12" travel), and they are able to bottom out the shock on one side while the opposite wheel (37s) is fully stuffed...

    PM # 17: check your exhaust system cushions

    After my last Rubicon trip my exhaust was pretty much sitting on the rear crossmember. The under the frame exhaust is a rock magnet. I now keep a couple of these in the truck.

    CSF Radiator Woes

    I've had a CSF in my 80 for several years and I agree - it sucks. I ran Dusy Ershim about 2 weeks ago. You have to climb nearly 4000ft over 15 miles to get up to Shaver Lake. The outside temp was around 70F, and I made it about halfway before I had to crank the heater up. Luckily there were...

    Good options for rear shocks for a 6” lift

    I've been happy with the Ironman 4x4 45682LFE1 rear shocks. I'm running them with a 4" Ironman lift and my 37s hit the wheel well before the shock compresses fully. Based on this chart, they have ~11.5" of travel.

    Center of Hub/ Fender Measurement

    Alright, bringing this thread back again! I came on here to check my numbers and figured I might as well contribute.... 🍻 Ironman 4" lift. Installed about 4 years ago. I've got the yellow coils, but the current green coils have the same part numbers. 4x4 labs bumpers front and rear. Warn Zeon...

    Any interest in quarter panel armor for the FJ80?

    Hey @eimkeith - did you ever get anywhere on the QP armor? I was thinking about it the other day while banging out some dents....

    Choosing paint color….would love to see some dark grey, gunmetal or charcoal rigs!

    I have a similar problem. I want to put Durabak smooth on my rig. The Durabak dark grey is too light for me, so I was considering mixing it with black.

    Any interest in quarter panel armor for the FJ80?

    Did you ever get a chance to work on this? I put some proper dents in my rear quarter this weekend. If there were an option available, I would order. 🍻

    Shakey mirror fix with a bracket and bottom post fix

    Just ordered up a set for both sides. My passenger has been bad for awhile, but now the driver side has decided to give up. Looking forward to using my mirrors again.

    5.29's with High Range Under-drive T-case Gears

    I'm running 37s and 5.29s with the 3.11 t-case gears. Off-road - The low range is good, but not great. The truck is just too damn heavy. It could really use a 2x reduction. Highway - Runs well, usually up around 3k rpms. I turn off the overdrive on big hills, but that's about it. I'm also...
