    80 series Slinky/ICON Long Travel Suspension officially coming to the U.S.A.

    Kolasin, thanks for response. I suppose I could ask for assistance from those in this thread that have a lot of real world experience with the slinky extra heavy or heavy springs. I have a lot of off road experience. Most years use to average 5000 miles a year off road. Not so much in recent...

    Let's see your 80 on skinnies!

    I know cost is always a concern, but bar non the best tire in the 255 is the Toyo M-55. Most forest service trucks in north west run them and a ton of mining trucks in northern Nevada. I have run several on tow rigs and off road rigs without ever having a single issue.

    FZJ80 axle shafts

    Stock will be fine. They tend to be more forgiving than chromos. I've put my stockers with 37's through a lot without issues. My 85 Toyota runs 39" bias and stock rear axles. I've beat the hell out of them for over 12 years and only broke one in Moab two years ago. Just carry a stock spare...

    Tire carrier with stock bumper build

    Thanks all, the clearance to the gate is 2". Should not be a problem. Unless the rock or tree does jump out. Years ago I was backing in very deep snow getting turned around and a tree jumped out caving in the rear gate of a heep I had. My own set up is 1.5" with a 37" tire. I built this set...

    Tire carrier with stock bumper build

    Well I have not been on here for a bit. Check in from time to time checking out the great stuff. I built this for a friend of mine and thought I would share to give some guys ideas. He wanted to retain factory look. I used .188 wall 2x2 for the main swing and .120 for the upper frame. 2x4...

    Official 37" and up picture thread

    Yes I did, thank you. I built the front, rear, sliders, and skids protecting everything that is necessary on the underside. As well as a 23 gallon aux gas tank that sits where the spare was. We spend thousands of miles a year in the desert and it never let's us down. You can view some of my...

    Thinking of removing rear silencer..

    I can't imagin a diesel would do it. Mine is has a slight whistle when I mash the gas for a pass other than that nothing. Not even close to a turbo sound.

    question on ome lift

    Most shops will just check the caster to see how far out you are for a small fee. I took mine to my local dealer. I had it checked not corrected at the shop, I corrected it. It's 3* not 3". My lift is in sig. This told me how far I needed to go to get the caster back in. I did run mine for a...

    question on ome lift

    Stock will be ok for now. If you use the cruiser offroad you'll want to upgrade soon. I ran my ome 850/863 for about 6 months with stockers. I Just put on Pro Comps under $200.00 to the door (all 4). Not bad for the money and I here great warranty. They will be tested this weekend and May 9-16...
