Yeah, the manuals are cool, but they actually fail more often. All the PAJEVOS that entered Dakar were automatics.
I agree 34k is good money for this one. A clean red one in the UK hit 60k mark recently.
Not a bad example, but I'd say its more of an average condition. Paint usually doesn't fade on these and the front bumper/skid has some wear and tear, bolster on the Recaros isn't bad, but not great, and the undercarriage has been painted. Check out the overspray on the upper control arm in pic...
I have a 24 gal LRA tank in my 80.
Pros: I think you know these by now, but not having to worry with jerry cans and the space they take up is really really nice. Especially if you mount them high. Thats for the birds.
Cons: Spare tire has to be relocated. Most people will have a 35 and...
For those thinking about purchasing a neglected 80. Here's what to estimate for decent baseline and refresh. Numbers are estimated parts cost only/parts+labor.
Front axle rebuild: $200/$1000
Oil Pump Gasket/Dizzy ORing/Front main seal/Valve Cover Gasket: $100/$1200
PHH+ Temp Control Valve +...
Sounds like you've hit all the usual suspects. Possibly wheel bearings or the actual steering box.
I'm sure you've done this, but lift one front wheel off the ground, grab it with both hands on opposite treads, then shake horizontally back and forth. That would be wheel bearings if they're...
1991-92 are arguably the worst years of the 80. Everyone who is considering an 80, buy a 95-97. Full float rear axle (avail in 94), better engine (than 91/2), and parts availability make for a better overall ownership experience.
Worth it if you can do the work yourself. Not worth it if you can't. 80s are officially a "classic" in my book and even though they are well built and mostly reliable, they need TLC at this point in their lives. If you can provide the labor, the OEM parts (only way to go), are fairly priced and...
Looking to build out a pop-up shell. Looking for the quality of the Overland Explorer Camp-X, but in shell model only. Does a manufacturer exist?
I know that OE currently doesn't offer one, and Bison Overland only makes flatbeds. Anybody else out there?
