Here are some pics of our new 80.

It is a white 96 with 141k. No wiser, no wood, no dial, no rack.

It isn't a show truck, but it has been very well kept.

I have wanted a white 80 since 1990, and I finally got one.

The engine compartment is nice and clean.

There is no number stamped on the engine tag, so I believe this is an oem replacement.

What did all the new replacement gaskets and rebuild kit for the front in run you?




Toyota does offer a knuckle kit, but it is NOT all inclusive and is MORE expensive than ordering the items individually.

I ended up spending $200ish, at the dealer.

This included all new knuckle studs and the cdl switch, but no bearings.

The dealer wanted another $260 for 2x KOYO inner, outter and 4x truion bearings.

Ended up getting all the KOYO's in a knuckle rebuild kit, from Cruiser Outfitters, for $190.

I now have some spare gaskets and seals which came in handy during the rebuild,

since I boogered one of the inner axle seals during instalation.

The rest of the rig looks pretty clean, too!

Congrats! :cheers:


Thanks, I am real happy with my first 80.

My sister has a 93 that she has been contemplating selling me, for years.

Everytime the subject comes up, she has a change of heart.

I understand and don't blame her for loving the Cruiser, it must be in our genes.

Now I don't have to pester her anymore.

Those pics of all the parts laid out are pretty impressive. I dont think I would have had the time or patience for that. haha

But your truck is nice. I remember when I got my 80. Best day ever.
