Want to start off by saying hey yall! I am new to the 80 world and am very excited to proceed forward with my 80! I am not new to land cruiser I have grown up around them and use to be the owner of a 100 series I loved very much, and I regret letting go. Anyways on the search for a 100 or an 80 I found one being sold by a guy at a local shop "TorFab" and was lucky enough to snatch it! When I purchased it the truck was pretty much stock other then a 2.5in ome lift. Before I picked it up they installed a 2in metal tech front spring spacer, caster corrections, ome steering stabilizer, 7 pin mod, cdl switch, and a set of 37x12.5-17 MTR kevlars which I had on my LX in a 35 and loved. Since then I have added full LED interior lights/ reverse lights and rear plate lights, as well as 6k HID highs and lows all thanks to diamond lighting. The cats had some rattle so I had a local exhaust shop make up a exhaust of the headers back. Done a bunch of random PV and of course a good polish and wax. Sitting in my garage currently is a 1inch blift, 15mm rear spring spacers, 41in LED lightbar, and a set of depo lights all the be soon installed. Having a local shop who made my bumpers and sliders for my 100 make a set for the 80 in the next week or so as well! Anyways enough talking, here's some pics of how she sits currently! Thanks again everybody for all your knowledge.

First off here's my old 100 :)

Your 100 was one of my favorites. That 80 is even better though. I too sold my river rock 100 and bought my black 80 back from a friend. I miss the V8 but there's something about these 80's......:hmm:

Thanks! Another thanks for the 1in body lift, went on flawlessly besides the fact that I put carpet back in with a screwdriver left underneath it! :doh:

Got snorkel installed! Turned out pretty good, glad it's done. Also installed kenwood speakers and tweeters. Wiring the the lightbar with a water proof quick disconnect on the roof and super strong magnets on the feet of the light bar so I can pull it on and off.

Few little things to add, mounted switch for lightbar, kenwood speakers, and one of my military spec battery connectors to go with new optima other one will be more complicated...

Thanks for all the good feedback, before the blift the rubbing was only coming from the right rear fender edge, other then that only full lock and stuff a tad but hardly noticeable, seems some get a lot of rubbing and some not to bad! Today I installed ome 15mm rear spring spacers to level back out. Also started my quick release setup for roof mounted lightbar.
