This what I'm starting with.
1993 FZJ80, 2" lift, E locker in the rear and more to come.
My immediate plans are a Sask Safety, fix what ever they say is wrong with it.

You can officially change your name to "Clean Cruiser" instead of Rusty Runner Wink

Looks pretty spanky!

Why not just build a full out cool hardcore wheeling expedition rig? Laughing

Very nice looking rig.

the great thing about an 80 is that it is already a great expedition rig. Throw on some mud terrains and a winch (can't tell if it has one) and your set.

Again very nice.

Ya, we really like our 80 and it is great for long trips. We just traveled about 1400 km with two kids(3 and 9 mos) in 3 days very comfortably, only 2500 km more to go. Laughing More details on the trip when i get back in october Very Happy

Cheers From Ritzville, Washington

Took the 80 in for an inspection.
It failed. I thought it would.
What failed was:
No daytime running lights (no argument there)
Stone crack in headlight (ouch expensive)
Loose front wheel bearings (OK need to do inner axle seals anyway)
Front sway bar end bushings (haven't looked to see what they look like)
Steering damper (looks fine but I will see when I pull it off)
Rear caliper seized (most likely the sliders but a brake job is a good idea anyway)
Rear brake rotor rusted and pitted (everywhere except braking surface. Not sure how that matters)
Signal light cover (a pathetic call. I could hardly find witch one it was. But I will most likely have to get one)

Well talked to SGI today. I can not repair my Turn signal cover.
The manual says to fail cracked lenses. But not fail some windshields that are cracked and you can repair them. Rolling Eyes
Here is a picture of my extremely unsafe signal.

Oh well I ordered my signal today.
