Yeah, I think it's important to post part numbers when working with these JDM vehicles! I try not to post them until I've bolted them onto my truck and confirm they're good though. I have quite a few parts I've ordered or are in the process of coming in that I'll post once they're on.nice truck, i just picked up a 93 hdj81 and going through the baseline thing also. doing the diffs this weekend (well my son is, i just had shoulder surgery) and possibly the transfer case. i like you reference part numbers, i have a spread sheet i keep all my numbers on,
i have multiple numbers on the belts and have not confirmed or ordered spares yet, do you have the numbers for the belts? 3 total, one set of 2 and 1 of 1. the ones installed are ok (mitsubishi) but?
thanks and have fun.
I don't know how I found these since this was last week and I didn't take notes, but... I picked up 99332-11260 (-78) for my AC belt, and Conti 17395 for my main drive belt (at a very cheap price). So maybe I'll be ordering new belts again. I see the 99332-11260 appears to be for '90-94 HDJ81s.thanks, so the 2452 number i have is good, yea! i did not have the other, or even close. thanks again.
not even my post, and still lots of info. this place is great!
Yeah... I've heard that from a lot of people. I think fortunately nothing too egregious was done between the aftermarket foglights, toll recorder, and remote start antenna. The turbo timer looks professionally installed, not sure when I'll get that out or if I'll bother.i spent a few days removing a pile of wiring from my jdm rig. I've done the same on every jdm rig my buddy has imported. its awful.
I would take a look at this thread: 92 HDJ81 radiator-where to get? - https://forum.ih8mud.com/threads/92-hdj81-radiator-where-to-get.1288162/. I'm going with an OEM radiator for a manual HZJ80 since they're still available, and have a used USDM transmission cooler that I'm going to install. AndTrying to figure out cooling components on my new 91 Hdj81. I wonder if there are any upgraded replacement radiators for auto Hdj81 which can cover the transmission cooling to?
Thanks @Dusten, this was a good call. They look kinda gross. I decided not to touch them for now though since I'm running out of time for my roadtrip and they're behind the exhaust... I'll drop the hardlines and go to hose when I do the exhaust, or fix em/bypass them if I have to on the trip.before you start trying to replace the rear stuff I recommend seeing how bad the hard lines are, and if they're bad just replacing the whole setup with gates hose.
Hey if you need a place to crash I’m only a few miles off 90 in MN.My roadtrip!
My plan is to spend a week driving out to my family's property north of Toronto; spend August up there enjoying the lake and helping out with family business; then spend a week driving back around Labor Day weekend. I want to camp most nights on the road; but not planning to do much off-roading... just sightseeing, national parks, and I'll bring my bikes. Go through South Dakota and Chicago on the way there, through Montana (maybe Michigan Upper Peninsula?) on the way back. Probably end up around 6000 miles in total, two weeks on the road, ~four weeks staying put. Should be an epic and amazing trip. Any suggestions along the way would be greatly appreciated for things to do! Wish I could be going to SAS on the way, but unfortunately I can't spare the days and leave earlier.

I want to leave next Thursday... the pressure is on to get this stuff done. I've cut down the to-do list:
- Finish swapping coolant hoses and put in new radiator
- Trans fluid cooler and flush
- Fix AC... been derailed on this one for a bit but should have all the parts now
- Install Auber gauges (more optional but ideal)
Nothing to it but to do it! (maybe in the mornings and evenings to avoid the direct sun of the Seattle heat wave we have right now...)
