Tried an experiment and it didn't work. Put these OME865X coils in the rear of my LX470 w/AHC to see if it would work...and it was too much of a lift, effectively taking all the load off the AHC system. BOING BOING BOING...Went with stock height King Springs instead to maintain...
Blue 1985 (09/1985) FJ60 with 163,020 miles as of 2/2/2019. (Sadly this isn’t the truck from the cover of the Jan/Feb 2019 Toyota Trails magazine) I am still driving it so the ODO will slowly tick up. I purchased this stock 60 in 2014 with 151K on it in SoCal. I moved to Norther VA mid-2015 and...
OK, so I've come to the realization that I need to enter a bit of a recovery mode from the holiday season & replenish the bank account. Over the last several years, while building my FJ80, I've managed to accumulate quite the stash of goodies.
Hoping to acquire another FJ80 to build for one of...
Please notify me if this is not ok to post in tech forum, I wasn’t sure the proper location. Not listing classified just looking for help in valuing my ride as I am considering selling!

Hello! I wanted to share a few pics of my LX470 build.
OME 2.5" Lift from Slee Offroad with Slee Diff Drop and SPC upper control arms
TJM Winch Mount plate with custom modified factory bumper.
Warn 9.5XP with remote mount solenoid box.
Michelin LTX AT2 Tires
Looking to sell this combo of 850/863 OME springs and Icon 2.0 shocks. This lift worked very nicely for me on my '96 80 series with a good level of comfort, dampening, and capability for a 2.5" lift. Springs and shocks have about 10K miles on them and are in very good condition.
I enjoyed the smooth ride of the 200...was a bit concerned on how much stiffer the OME kit would make it.

1996 LX450 for sale. 263,107 miles. 3rd owner.
Was a CA truck, 100% dealer maintained until 2008 when 2nd owner brought it out to CO. I purchased the vehicle in 2011 bone stock @ 164,000 miles. I thought this would be a life long purchase for me, but the addition of 4 kids is forcing my...
Ok well I started a side by side race series and really don't need 2 fjs. This is for my 97 triple locked and lifter fzj80. All lockers work but have been put on individual switches. Runs great with lots of maintenance done. Has ome lift that has less the 200 miles on it and newer cooper...
For sale are:
1) OME Nitrocharger Sport Shocks - 2 front/2 rear; and
2) OME 2860 (aka 860) Rear Coil Springs.
$400.00 for the bundle.
Would prefer to sell together. This basically gives you everything you need to lift a 100 (at a pretty low cost), except for the torsion bars...
Hi, I am looking to get a lift put into a 200 series what should I expect to pay near San Francisco, CA area?
When I was shopping for the suspension Cruiseroutfitters quoted $450 install. Not finding anything in that price range in CA. It is more around $850-$1,000 for labor.
I've got OME heavy/heavy on my FJ62 and like it a lot. For my HZJ77, not sure whether to go heavy/medium, or heavy/ heavy. I don't want to be putting more leafs in later if I can avoid it. I don't run a winch, and it's on 33" BFGs.
Thanks for any thoughts.
Hey Fellow Mudders,
I am choosing (being forced...:princess:) to sell my beloved 80. I was using it as my DD but was simply spending too much for my wife to bear, she's very fiscally minded. Anyway here's the book I've written about it along with some pictures. PM me is you're interested...
Fits any Early to 1984 BJ/FJ40/41/42
Complete set of springs, shocks, bushings, greasable shackles and steering damper...all hardware included. Never installed OLD MAN EMU kit, with dakar springs sold to me by Kurt at Cruiser Outfitters.
Below are the details...
A few weeks ago I purchased the 55-specific suspension kit from Kurt @ Cruiser Outfitters. The kit is comprised of Old Man Emu spring packs and shocks, along with goodies such as anti-inversion grease-able shackles and bushings. Good stuff.
The kit requires moving the rear hanger back...
Is it possible to add a second add-a-leaf to an OME spring pack with an add-a-leaf? I need a little more lift. One of my airbag failed and so I am a little ass low.
I'll be in Salt Lake city on Monday so I can get the part from Cruiser Outfitters.
Not sure if im understanding this correctly but it appears there are very few options for getting longer travel shocks from our 100's. It seams most are limited to handle 1.5" - 2" lift and maintain enough drop.
If you have lots of $$$$$ and need a lift for 140MPH baja runs " sarcasm everyone...
