    Bottle jack alternatives and how to safely store/secure them

    I ditched the factory jack some time back as mine was dodgy and it doesn't work well with a lifted 80. Instead I have a Masada MH-7 which is bigger but made in Japan is high quality. It does't fit into the factory jack pocket (and that's a pretty poor place to put the jack IMHO). pic page...

    Any safety benefit wtih in cab winch controls?

    Is there any safety benefit with in cab winch controls? I have only had to use it once and used the handheld wired controller and worked just fine. If there is a safety gain then I will install a switch.... All I see is: One less item to store. Someone else can hook up while you stay in the cab.

    Gents, I'm looking to upgrade the headlights in my 62 using the popular harness from slcfj62 here on Mud, and wanted to upgrade the headlamps to H4/H1s. However, H4s - and any non-DOT headlamps - are technically illegal here in VA (but H1s are okay). Are any of you running these and/or have...

    Scissor lift safety question

    When I was working on my old Jeep, the Bendpak would raise it enough to work under, and I could still use conventional jack stands as a safety back up (the lift has a mechanical lock). I find that for good clearance on this truck, I have to raise it higher than the jacks will reach. Bendpak...

    Bifocal Safety Glasses, Sunglasses, Cheaters

    I've reached that age, been trying to compensate, nothing seems to work as well as I'd like. At least I can experiment fairly cheaply buying safety glasses for work with various levels of cheaters in the bottom. I picked up a set of (red) +3.5 reading glasses for a buck at the hardware store...

    Child seats in an 80 (seat belt info)

    So I searched and it seems that my 93 is the last year that the second row doesn't have the ratchet feature once the belt is fully pulled. Can someone confirm that any model 94 and up will have ratcheting belts in the 2nd row. If so can you install 94+ 2nd row belts on a 91-93 model. Do the...

    80 Series Safety

    We are looking at buying an 80 series LC as a daily driver, but wanted to hear the groups thoughts about safety. We have a 3yr old son and I want to make sure he'll be fine in our rig should something happen. Thoughts? Should I look at something newer?

    I've been quietly watching a few recent threads highlighting potentially dangerous things happening to our rigs that may threaten the lives of us and our loved ones. We all acknowledge these trucks are old and require maintenance, but I think we should maintain a "CRITICAL SAFETY ALERT" thread...
