That should help, If you ever get around to getting a wholesale valve body it would make a big difference, at least I think it would. Its hard for me to tell since I did everything all at once.


I'd love to have the Wholesale valvebody, but it is sure expensive. I wish I could just buy a shift kit for the valvebody I have.

How are you liking the new setup on your truck? I'm considering upgrading my turbo as well.

Its great! The extra power is really nice and it also cruses on the highway better. I was on the highway yesterday and at 115 my Egt's were are 700 and 10 pounds of boost, truck just seems to not have to work as hard now.

Wait a week

Spray on wax
Spray Formula 3000 into the inside of the frame, rockers, body cavities around front and rear fenders.

It was a huge amount of work

Here in Regina. It's in good shape too, some minor surface rust and the fenders need some straightening.

Planning to just keep is as a utility trailer for the time being.

620lb final load of 6 loads of trees to the dump. Arborist wanted $2k to take the trees out, learned a new skill myself instead.

According to the dump scales my 80 weighs in at ~6100lbs subtracting the weight of the trailer.

Rear locker actuator is done. I've ordered the parts to swap it over to air actuation, can put it all together including a Puma compressor for about half the cost of a new actuator from Toyota.

Looking good dude. That rear window access is awesome.
Where did you buy the air locker conversion?
