Hi guys,

Sorry, my heading should say CE not CL.

Long time 55, 40 and 60 owner, long time 80 Lurker.

I finally found a decent 80 after searching for 2yrs!

97 Collectors Edition, 2 owner from Vail, 80800 miles, Locked, super clean minus some toxic paint burning bird poop.

I just put a 93 front bumper on it, the PO bent the OEM one on a gas station post. Just in case you know your s*** and wanted to let me know.

To keep this tech, what 15" steelies can I mount-up that will clear the calipers? Also, what do I need to do for the CDL switch upgrade?

Here are some pics.

If anyone is looking for the 3rd row seats, they are for sale...local pick-up. $400.00
 
nice find!
 
Welcome! Very nice score with only 80k on the OD. You can pick up a CDL switch
from Slee Off Road a Mud vender favorite .
 
I don't believe 15's clear the back brakes on 93+ (disk)
 
I'm asking about the 15's because I have a set of nearly new BFG's on black steelies that I was hoping would fit but.....nope. So, maybe there are some other 15's that will clear and I could use my tires.
 
In that case I'll go out of my way and swap rear axles with you :D
 
Just for fun, here's the original window sticker.

That is a very optimistic window sticker. !15 MPG highway? Right. Mine's tuned to the t!ts and get 13.3.

Maybe yours is the 3.6 L 4 banger?

So, why do 15's fit on the rear of my '91 HDJ81 with disks, and not on a FZ with disks? My axles are K294's.....
