Hey I just want to see what some of the specific things people love about their 80's. Post whatever ya want.

Other than everything about it all around, I love the sweet sound my TLC makes when you lock the diffs in low range. All those gears churning...mmmm. I also like the sweet spot sound you get from the engine at about 40, its quietly humming right after it changes gears. I also love the aggrassive and miltiry type look you get from a 3-quarter shot of the front. Tell me some stuff yall like.

Out of the Box Lockers!
After 5 months of ownership and over 5000 miles of easy 4x4ing, my OEM + 33’s got a great and impressive (for me) workout last weekend in Anza Borrego. I was giddy like a little kid and so happy I didn’t buy a Disco! Even better, my wife could appreciate, witness and understand my lust for OME, Sliders and a new rear bumper/tire carrier.

Kewl bright white LEDs thanks to George S, and about a thousand other things.  A polite request and I'll list them all in descending order of love.  :G

Just thought of another thing that came in VERY handy last weekend. We were camping on different days with two different groups, 100 miles apart so I was in and out of the rear a thousand times. The split rear with an upper hatch and a lower tailgate is wonderful.

Anyone ever see Men in Black 2? Remember all the little people that had the little city in the locker? They worshipped a 2 for 1 coupon for some restaurant and a wristwatch. I figure a group of little guys like that would really like a landcruiser.

I really like the appearance of the 80 series...it just looks Tough as hell, especially with a lift/rack/snorkle. They are also classy enough to valet park yet strong enough to haul you and all your crap to the middle of nowhere and get you back.
