Nice setup! What diameter are you running up front? I am riding on the Tough Dog setup as well with 51s up front, 45 adjustables in the rear, and torsion bars. Just got back from Colorado and got to break them in, they make a world of difference over stock!
Pictures should be available here: For Sale - Arkansas - 1997 FZJ80 40th Anniversary Edition - $14,000We are selling our 1997 40th Anniversary Edition FZJ80, I have owned this rig for the past 4-5 years. In that time it has been driven occasionally, (mostly in town), for a total of about 15,000 miles. Current mileage on the odometer is just under 174,000. This is the same rig in my profile picture except it is without the Inti roof rack. Everything works as it should. This vehicle does not have the locking rear or front differential. It does have the center differential lock switch installed and this does work. The rear has a mechanical locker installed, (Aussie). I do have the original parts that came out so these can be used again if desired. In addition, here is an abbreviated list of maintenance and other work I performed on this vehicle:
