Last week my fiancée, puppy, and I headed on our first major trip after overhauling our LC. As the title suggests, the car was totalled- here's the whole story if you're interested... Back in September the startup I was working at went under, so I decided to use my newfound vacation time and severance check on an LC80 adventure rig for the family. We love the outdoors, but my '99 2WD Pathfinder just wasn't cutting it. A few weeks later I picked up my new daily driver, a stock 3X locked '97 40th Anniversary w/ 150k miles. Since picking it up I've baselined it and did most of the usual go-to mods (tires, suspension, bumper, rack). We haven't taken the cruiser on a big trip yet so after much planning we decided on a 5-Day adventure in Death Valley for the holidays. Steve at RPM Garage (Monrovia, CA) burned the midnight oil to get my OME lift installed and aligned before the trip. He even opened the shop for us on Christmas Eve to pick up the truck, giving me just enough time to replace the grill and plasti dip the wheels black Getting the lift installed and alignment dialed at RPM Garage.
