ExPo 80 Series Registry

tex68w, Saw this thing on ebay, looks sweet, glad you got it.
Yea we worked out a deal outside of eBay then made an offer we agreed upon through the auction. I've put quite a bit into it in the last few weeks and it's really taking shape. It's up to momma now whether or not it sticks around or gets sold off for a 100 or 200 series.


 
New to me 1993

1. 1993 FZJ 80, maroon (not sure what Toyota calls it?)
2. Mike or Shmabs
3. First LC, had it a little over a month ago
4. 213k when I bought it, 215k now.
5. The truck came with a small lift and 33 inch duratracs which I swapped out for cooper AT3's, basically stock other than that.
6. Truck is my DD, and used for weekend adventures. I bought it about two weeks before a planned Moab trip, knocked out a bunch of maintenance and minor repairs and hit the road! I think Moab was the first time this thing has ever seen the dirt. The previous owner also posted up somewhere in this thread.

My First Land Cruiser

1. Year, model, color, etc:
1994 80 Series, White, No special options

2. Name of owner/screen name:
Scott / SkyMall

3. How long have you owned your 80 series?
I've had it a couple weeks. This is my first LC, and I'm stepping up from a 1993 4Runner

4. Mileage at date of purchase and present mileage:
It's got around 215,000 and I haven't driven it since I made the deal. It's been at a shop having some work done while I was out of town.

5. Your favorite mods... If any:
Only real mod so far is the OME 2.5" lift (Shocks, Heavy Springs, Castor Kit, Steering Damper)

6. How your 80 is used... ie. DD, family adventure, overland travel, etc.:
Initially, this will replace my 4Runner as my daily driver, but I'm hoping to make a hobby out of expedition camping.

7. Your 3 favorite photos (keep them updated):
See Below

8. Link to your build thread:
No build thread yet, but it's coming. Here's my roughly chronological list

- Remove the awful window tint

- New tires. I've pretty much decided on 285/75R16s, and I'm down to Grabber AT2s or Duratracs. Leaning toward Duratracs. I'm also intrigued by 255/85R16s, but there's just not a good selection in that size and I'm afraid it's just a teeny bit too narrow for this bloated beast.

- New stereo. I hate car audio, but the previous owner took the head unit with him so my hand is kinda being forced here. I'm leaning toward the Blaupunkt New Jersey 220 BT, then some new Pioneer door speakers, and probably the 8" stock location sub mod.

- Front bumper. Thinking TJM 17 or maybe the Metaltech tube.

- Probably recover the seats. The previous owner recovered them in camo and it's faded, smells bad, and isn't my style. Something simple and OEM looking. I'm also probably going to hang onto the jumpseats. They're still grey but I may recover those too while I'm at it. We'll see what the price ends up being.

- Winch

- Deflare and fill holes. Maybe also paint. I love the white, but I'm thinking maybe 6H9. So old school. So hipster ;)

- Snorkel, cuz why not? It's just money. You can't take it with you.

- Rear bumper. Something with a tire carrier. Probably the ARB.

- Diffs and (maybe) Gears. OMG do I wish Eaton made a Truetrac for the rear. If they did, Front/Rear Truetracs would be much higher on my list. I doubt I'd go to 4.88, but maybe 4.56 if it makes sense to do it while they're open anyway.

- What have I missed?
