    Nice work!! Well, my quest for an 8.1L is over. I settled. :) Found a 2002 GMC K2500 with a 6.0L Auto for too good a price to pass it up. It'll do. First project is to ditch the contractor...

    Hmm, it occurs to me that since you're in Sweden, you might have a 24v system... If you do, nothing you're talking about will work, or is necessary, because you need both batteries to make 24v. To...

    Those kits work great, and require a minimal understanding to wire them in, but they are EXPENSIVE!!

    Have you replaced all four shocks with 9000's, or just the rears? The factory front shocks on these trucks are pretty soft... And did you use the p/n that Rancho calls out for the front, or some...

    With 35's, you won't notice much difference between the two, but if you plan to go to SA, stick with 16's. 35's will be pretty tough to find, but tires for 17's may be even more difficult... :)

    I won't bash you for being lazy, but there's an actual section for 12v solar questions, which is where your inquiry belongs... Hopefully one of the mods will move this there.

    I believe the stock LJ rear spring rate is around 170lb/in, depending on what options you have. JK springs do not really fit. Nor do rear ZJ springs. You'll want to use a spring that was made for...

    I ran Cooper STT's on my Jeep for years, and loved them. I'd wager they're the best mud tire in snow/ice stock, though I've never been exposed to Toyos. Definitely best bang for the buck though. ...
