When you are deep in the Sahara desert along the Algerian border you do what is needed to get out.
Doing the same here. Like the idea of a simple and cost effective solution for better lights. Were there pics of what needs to be trimmed for fitment?Ended up ordering 4 of these from RA along with a few other parts. Thanks for the suggestion. They are nice and bright, but the fit could be a little better. They don't click in quite as good as the 9005/9006 bulbs. They don't jiggle while driving so I guess they pass the test!
wtf?? all from spinning whilst locked and turning? or just poorly serviced to begin with?The dunes of Tunisia was hard on birfs for both 80 and 60 series
4 - 80 series birf failures on our trip
3 on the red now POS HDJ81
I can now claim 2 broken 80 series birf to my credits along with several other 80 parts.
And 1 on this HDJ80
We were down to only a short birf so some African modifications were needed. Sand tightens all tolerances
got ya, just didnt think a desert for a few days could do em in so easily ya know. what am i missingNeither just extremely demanding on vehicles. All of our vehicles were diesels with turbos Im thinking gas would be a joke.
Try to get your rig up hill like below all day.
But WHY? wouldnt they (Toyota) have done it that way being that it would be waay simpler? Personally I wouldn't..just sounds like trouble
I see some of my home in there. P-townMad respect to all you guys really using your 80s in the wild. Put 3k miles on mine over thanksgiving week mostly city, interstate and some national park forest roads. 80 made it all worthwhile.
