I was looking at the picts form the other post about wheeling the 80 with picts so i had to get my 80 out and wheeling.
Its a 92 Turbo diesel,direct from Japan, mild lift, rancho 9000's and now complete with alot of west coast pinstriping. There were 7 or 8 other landcruisers with me but I havent checked with them about posting their rigs so im only posting mine.

I just bougth a boost guage and a pyrometer to go on it, the rancho 9000 in cab control modual, and have several other things going on like taller tires, Im thinking 37"boggers for trails and keep the ones on it now for street.

this is out past sooke a bit, still some good wheeling on the south island , but its not like it was a couple years ago, but still enough to keep my wanting to buy some 37" boggers and keep the yoko's for the street. I just bought all new rancho 9000's and the control modual, dual red top optimas,and we are going to make some sliders/steps for the wife....If I go with the boggers its going to be even harder for her to get into and i need to keep peace in the vally if im to get a piece of the vally:grinpimp:
It came with 3" stainless exhaust right from the turbo.
Ive found a few flaws with it, I guess the auto trans is a bit of a weak spot, so i just bought a 26Kbtu trans cooler, and have that mounted but not plumbed, I allready ordered a new set of axels with the original lockers in them, but might just sell them and go arb locker, I hear the toyota lockers dont handle tires over 35 for long. and I know I am going to go taller than that, and with diesel torque. wellllllll....
They are an expensive toy, but I dont have kids so really im still saving alot of money hahahaha.
Thanks for all the coments,
Noel

The Toyota Factory lockers can handle fine 35" plus tires .. but for the worth I will choose the ARB lockers way .. same end more easy.

Can you post a pic of your exhaust . ? and sound ( yeap .. video ! :D )

Nice Cruiser ..
