    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?

    You'll know where to trim when you pull out the old bulbs to compare. Only the bulb needs trimmed, not the housing.

    Neither 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.

    For me after trail and error sand dunes with 80 conditions are:
    1. reduce your air pressure in the tiers to 8-10 (cooper STT Pro 33'' ) psi this is critical
    2. CDL on
    3. trans in Low + 4.56 reduction
    4. Gear in Drive with overdrive off
    5. front and rear diff locks OFF!!!


    and weeeeehhhee it flays the problem is that some dunes are a knife and then you flay with the brides and when you hit the ground you can brake something

    Random question.... can I splice all the fusible links together into one wire? trying to clean up my battery area. Curious how y'all have them hooked up.

    I wouldn't. The factory made it that way for a reason.

    Don't drive it much in the salt road weather but took it to deliver a rack tonight and loved the ride. Whenever I have to go long stretches without my 80 I am reminded how awesome it is when I get back in it. Took it through the woods for a cool down on the way home.

For a pivot I used a Class 1 Hitch Pin with a #13,000 rating for a side load.
