    Solutions to the cracked dash?

    My thoughts exactly about the cost. I did a test on spare cracked dash to see if I could recover it. Pulling off the old vinyl was easy with a heat gun. Filling in the cracks with expanding foam works, but I should have spent much more time making the seam/transition more smooth. The old crack...

    Back Window Ground - Gen1 4R

    About a year ago my rear window wouldn't go up using the in-cab switch, but would with the key. I looked at the switch and noticed some corrosion on the pins. I cleaned it up and works again. This is why I suggest looking at all connections for corrosion and/or looking for voltage drops in the...

    Red Field Canyon trail

    Are you sure it is Gomez Road? I know there is a Gamez Road in that area.

    Tucson Alignment Shop Recommendation

    I'm looking for a recommended shop for an alignment. When replacing the tires I noticed that my camber is off a bit on the 86 4Runner, time for an alignment. I think I'll take this opportunity to mildly crank my torsion bars to remove a little of my stinkbug. I've never done this, but it...

    The life and times of my 1987 Toyota Pickup - KLF Special

    I was very impressed seeing this truck in person this weekend during a serendipitous trip to ACE. Really nice truck.

    1st gen 4Runner Gas Tank Dimensions?

    I'm thinking about it. I'm trying to decide what is best to fog the interior of the tank to prevent long term corrosion.

    1st gen 4Runner Gas Tank Dimensions?

    This is exactly why I was sure I had the smaller tank. I feel a little sheepish now with my expensive assumption, but happy to have more range.

    Back Window Ground - Gen1 4R

    Could it be a voltage drop due to corrosion of some connection?

    What did you do to your Land Cruiser/Toyota/Lexus 4X4 this week?

    Well, I was bored and cleaning up the carport/shop and came across an old PVC air hose I don't use anymore. I recalled a conversation I had with Ben @D_Web about a friend of his with a set up to air up his tires easier. :idea: I decided to see if I could put something together with minimal out...

    1st gen 4Runner Gas Tank Dimensions?

    And to put an end to this thread. I finally ran the tank down until the low fuel light just started to come on. Took 14.6 gallons to fill it up. I can comfortably go 300 miles between gassing up when in need. Now to sell the unneeded tank, skid, sender and hanger.

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    torque adapters I bought these awhile ago, but seem to no longer be available. They are pretty darn handy.

    1st gen 4Runner Gas Tank Dimensions?

    OK, I found a post on Pirate where a guy measured the depth from the pinch weld to the bottom of the tank on the DS (left) of the tank. I gave up to easy on my googling earlier. :love: 4Runner Gas Tank differences - Pirate4x4.Com : 4x4 and Off-Road Forum The larger one (17 gallon) is...

    80 VS 1st gen 4Runner

    The bottom line is they are different tools. I daily drive the 4Runner. It is nimble, easy to park and fun to drive. I do take it out for camping when it is just my daughter and me and I don't expect crazy challenges. IFS on washboard roads is nicer. I drive the 80 about once a week just to...

    1st gen 4Runner Gas Tank Dimensions?

    Does your light come on when you first hit empty or does it take a bit? Do you have a 22RE? For some reason I think I remember you swapped in a 3.4L, so comparing range wouldn't work. I did swap in an SR5 gauge cluster years ago and have just assumed the Fuel light needed some extra wiring or...

    1st gen 4Runner Gas Tank Dimensions?

    That is correct about skid plates @se7enine This is why I’m confused. I’m at about 238 corrected miles. I know from experience with the fuel gauge here I will fill it up with about 12.5-13 gallons. If I do have a 17 gallon tank, this means I have almost 4.5 gallons of reserve. This is close...

    1st gen 4Runner Gas Tank Dimensions?

    12 3/4” it is. I guess I already have a 17 gallon tank. Could I ask a favor to see how deep your current 17 gallon tank is? Just to confirm unless you are confident about the the tank size it came out off Now to just figure out the fuel sender issue and why running on empty I still have 4.5...

    1st gen 4Runner Gas Tank Dimensions?

    This is long and I apologize. TLDR: Can people with a known 17 gallon tank or a known 14 gallon tank measure the depth of the fuel tank at the midpoint of the tank about where the fuel pump hanger/fuel inlet hose is? Fuel pump hanger depth from a known tank would work too I guess. Thanks For...
