This is my currents set up for road and trail travel. HiLift and spare driveshaft are between the 2nd row and the tire, shovel on one side during the winter and all of the rest of my crap is in the box on top of the 37. Easy access to the Yankum Rope on the right.
(I just talked the...
I've run most of these obstacles down there at Barnwell Mt. and there are some difficult stuff like this that my son Plant Man made me look like a novice. He is running 35" Goodyear MTR's and I've got 37" Pitbull Rockers. Oh yeah, he has open diffs.
My extra clearance is great but his tires...
Plant Man taking some exact measurements to create his own spare tire carrier.
This is the last time I used mine. After being a moron and getting it stuck right there I had the bright idea of having a friend push me with his 80 and it bent something. I moved it inside after that but it’s going...
My white 80 on 37’s and 6” springs with some light fender massaging on the front and 3.5” lowered bump stops on the rear.
37’s on mine, 39.5’s on militruse’s, 285’s on Plant Man’s LX and 33’s on the 62
Front full stuff
Rear full stuff
It shifts based on my throttle position so it is from 2krpm to over 4krpm. It’s shifting correctly while in D. When in L it behaves exactly like it’s in D.

I did adjust the shift linkage so it was...
When shifting manually my 80 seems to not care that I’ve put it into first/L gear with the transmission shifter. (I am not having a problem with my xfer
H&L) When driving in D it behaves completely normal.
1. Taking off with shift selector in L it drives in 1st just fine until it...
At least we can go wheelin at some point right? It’s our first time living on the Western Slope.
I’ve seen some built 80’s around and a 4Runner or two. I can’t wait to get out on some Colorado trails again!
I just need to borrow a space to do a front axle service myself. It could even be outside, I do not care, I just need somewhere to work on it. I moved here two weeks ago and my inner axle seal blew today.
I also wouldn’t mind getting to know some others that go wheelin in the area.
*FYI , Plantman is my son.
That sudden change from a ticking sound to a disturbing knock occurred in Hanna, Wyoming. (No one else has heard of it either.)
Within 30 minutes our friend Alan from Overland Rock & Rally was on his way from Idaho with a flatbed trailer behind his work truck to bring...
