    Here are some pics of my 80. I am slowly getting it back into tip top shape. I am prepping for an Overland Trip from Florida to Colorado with my two lovely daughters before they are grown and gone. They are 19 and 17 now.

    Here's what I have done so far:
    Paint job
    All new wiring under the hood.
    Distributor, plug wires, battery, etc.
    Snorkel
    Upgraded tires
    Valve cover gasket
    Timing cover set
    All new brake system
    New power steering pump and reservoir
    Removed 3rd row sets (sold)
    Removed Carpet and rhino lined the floor
    Replaced Factory Bumper with Off road bumper
    Added 12,000 pound winch
    And more that I am surely forgetting right now.

    What I still need (Wish List):
    Axle seals
    Battery charger/isolator (Redarc or CTEK, etc)
    Blue Sea Fuse Block
    Water tank with 12 v pump
    Heat Exchange for hot showers
    Drawer System
    Fridge
    Upgraded Suspension
    Roof Top Tent
    Heavy duty rear bumper
    And more...


    Right now I am trying to trade a 120 Watt Solar Panel for one of the things on my need list.

    I have an Instagram Account where I post my progress as well as some of my adventures. I regularly give away products that are donated to me. So check me out and win a prize. Nathan_king_Overland

    Right now I am offering a prize to who can come the closest to guessing how much I paid for my Land Cruiser and what the Mileage was when I bought it.
