Thoughts on the older 4.7 Toyota Sequoias? There is one near me with high mileage but looks showroom immaculate for a ok price.
>>25607618They'll go forever just like the rest of the 2UZ trucks.However

>>25607632$5.80/gal? What state?I currently dd a 94 suburban with a 42 gallon tank. Filling up at the current cost is about $200 and gets me about 530 miles. Ive grown numb to the pain.
Anyone with a GX470 should drill a hole here. It's behind the plastic fender liner on driver side behind the firewall. This is looking up from wheelwell. Was packed with loam up there and can't really get at it unless you're a 90lb Filipino ladyboy. >>25607738It was 93 octane. Only gets me like 275 miles because of the pitiful 23g tank. I wish the 24g aux tank that goes in the spare hole wasn't like 3 fucking thousand dollars. And not DOT approved but not CA so who gives a fuck.
>>25607729>>25607846God I love the beach.
>>25607618good news: it's just a first gen tundra with a bed cover so you get access to all the same super kewl aftermarketbad news: there's fuck all for super kewl aftermarket
>>25607888Keked and checked
>>25607632good thing i got a little 30mpg shitbox to scoot to and fro
>>25608350I do not know this feel
Wranglers gets the wave but Land Cruisers get the pinky.
>>25609583The jeep wave has inspired me to want to stare the Corolla middle finger.
>>25609977Corolla isn't very aggro though. Perhaps, Maxima middle finger?
>>25607846Jelly, none of my friends have 4x4s.>>25607868Nice colour m8>>25607883HELL YEAHHow necessary are lockers offroad? I only got a rear LSD.
>>25610106>How necessary are lockers offroadNot very. Airing down and suitable tires will make the biggest difference.They are an advantage in many circumstances, and can make harder tracks easier to drive, though on the beach they make little difference especially if you've already got an LSD in one end.
I'm on a business trip in West Virginia, and as a midwesterner I can now say I'm going to move. You can't drive down the highway without finding sweet trails or "scenic overlook 4mi --->". Any of you boys from appalachia need a new friend? >>25609583>New 80 ownerIs that a 450? if so, did you ever have the issue with the power seat worm gears getting sheared? Mine are totally fucked and I'm debating if it's worth fixing them or just manually adjusting the seat and leaving well enough alone. Also, what pads/rotors do you use...gonna rehab the breaks before i decide if I want to keep it or not.
>>25607868I'm you but from the past.
>>25610648>Is that a 450It looks like a J120 GX dash, not an 80.
>>25610106Thanks anon, it was a bitch to get but I’m glad I did. >>25610654That’s sick
>>25610648Its a 470Post your 450, they're beautiful.
>>25610106A locker in the rear is a complete game changer and driving on the beach is third world shit Full stop
GET FUCKIN HYPE BOYS>>25611081True in both counts but get the front locker first.
>>25611068Mines an 80, triple locked. Got it on a steal last week and I wasn't expecting to own one, so I know very little about them.
>>25611150Oh right yeah fackin steal.Having an adjustable seat is nice when you have a waifu.To your other post I put GX460 rotors and calipers in for extra beef.
Should I get a 2020 tacoma or a 2021 bronco?
>>256113592022 dragon dildo
>>25611367Already have several of those
>>25611131They came in eh? Fuck yea...get em mounted and show us
>>25611250Thanks. I'll have to dig though mud and see what my options are for brakes are. A set of rotors and pads looks like it's about $300 for an 80 so if there's a better option for another $50 why not. Even moreso if I break all the caliper bolts bleeding it
>>25611466Just get a slick side rotor with cryo treatment and call it good. My bolts were all pretty good after 15y, low mile but salt belt.
>>25611815Even the bleeders on the calipers? I'm at 202k in the salt belt but there's no way it lived here all that time because it's still mildly clean
>>25611473Ffs I just wanted a kino suv with decent off roading capability, why can’t ford stop cutting corners for one fucking model
>>25611825They all came off with a flare nut wrench. My butthole was clenched ngl.Bought stoptech stainless brake lines to put on.
Not so tough are you now saltGoing to take like 10h to sand down these 5 wheels. Spare inside surface is horrendous.I'll be sure to blog post the repair process.
>>25611849Fair. The brake lines are brand new-the previous owner tried to solve the braking issue but never bled them so the pedal is absolute trash. I figure I'll just try my luck with some mapp and PB on the bleeders like I do with everything else, and if I end up cooking the caliper(s) I'll just have to find new ones anyway.
Should I chop the resonator off and vent it out the side behind the tyre? >>25611954Idk about on 80s but new calipers were cheap as chips. Like $150.On 120s you actually bleed them backwards; fronts first then rears, driverside then passenger. Might check to see if it's the same for those.
>>25611448>>25612702Apt on Monday to get them mounted weeeeeReally have to do the body mount chop this weekend but nervous cuz only have a stick welder. Also, never welded b4.
>>25611473This is why I bought the 2.3L I knew the V6 was shit, even the F150s are having problems and they have been running that block for years
>>25612864How has it been? Are they gutless t. Only ever pigfag V8 SUVs
>>25612998Not bad at all, boost limited in first gear, easy around town, solid on the highway into the 90s, tows my boat and trailer fine, shifts smoother and has a more progressive clutch than the JL manual, gas mileage is almost identical to the V6 with the auto, door removal is easier than the wrangler, Soft top is easiler to open in the rear when loading things in the back, no big ass roll bar behind the front seats, base model has LED headlights and A/C standard (option on JL sport)Caveats: Base radio has crap speakers, a couple windows didn't close automatically but an OTA software update fixed that early on, Power steering pump is on the engine so nudging the wheel when the auto start is active forces the engine to start (JL has an electric pump), can't fold the windshield down, whistling noise in the front end above 65I would never pay more than sticker but it's a comfy drive, looking to get a tune once warranty is expires

Debating a new Bronco. Went to the Ford dealer last month and a fat little salesman sees my 2013 FJ and says he'd give me $35k for it right off the bat. Tbh I love my trugg anons but I kinda want something a bit bigger
So I'm close to buying this gx 470 with the kdss but the price seems a tad high. It's in Canadian so it'd be 26k USD. Should I get it? I've heard kdss on old gx470s are rare these days
>>25613686>more than double the price in LeafistanOofI don't have KDSS or the nice paint though.What you have to make account for is that KDSS means your aftermarket is now pretty limited; there are quite a few companies than if they even offer a compatible mod it comes at a premium, sometimes over 20% more; KDSS does work but after 1k miles of no swaybars its been fine to drive and waifu hasn't complained.
>>25613639>new Fordis this a joke?
>>25614024If all I really want is some lifts, bigger tires, blinding lights, a rooftop tent, and a better back to transport dead elk in will kdss get in the way? Also just looking through see gx470s across the border at Washington.. ffs you're right, shits so cheap and plentiful. I might have to look into importing from usa
>>25613681purchasing a kdss vehicle in salt land hell really makes my asshole pucker bro
>>25613639>fat little salesman sees my 2013 FJ and says he'd give me $35k for it right off the batThese fuckers are part of the reason car prices are so inflated right now and I sincerely hope they all have a brain aneurysm
>>25611815>>25607530Does your mum know you're cutting up her car?
>>25611880Get a harbor freight sandblaster. You'll thank me later.
>>25614184Your first problem will be when you go to add under armor, they're alot more for KDSS and only a few options.My old neighbor got raped when he married a leaf and brought his Q5 across the demarcation zone. A series of rapes, really. Rooftents are overpriced memes. Just get the aftermarket replacement roof rack rails and flat cross members, the roof can take 700lbs static but OEM rails only support like 150lbs. Then just set a tent up on the new flat roof rack if you have to be off the ground.>>25614468>momWell I mean do call her mommy OwO>>25614479I know I know it's on the list. Running out of shop space, need to buy the lot next door and build a garage. I'm too soft to work in the rain and mud for more than a hour nowadays.
>>25612235Just chop it. I did when i trimmed the rear bumper on my old suburban, exhaust noise didn't really change.
>>25614745I think I have a small leak up near the y pipe, it's quite a bit louder when you're near the loudener than near the nearly silent exhaust tip end.Next year it's headers to tip replacement. Fucking 02 sensor codes putting it in limpmode cuz of emissions. Oh well takes 2s to reset every few weeks w the scan tool that lives in the door.
>>25614184>elkGuy down the road has some sort of hood accoutrement on his Land Rover, looks like shaped and painted diamond plate; I wonder if he uses it to strap deerts to do it doesn't scratch the paint. Who am I kidding that thing sits in his driveway all boomer waxed up to a shine
>>25614403drug dealer vs the junkie. who’s worse?
>>25612766what rims are you going with?
Well they'll fit at full droop no problem heh. Took the sledge hammer to the upper wheel fenders while the waifu took a nap. I'm going off the prep for 35x12.5r17s which are way wider and an inch taller so I'm holding off further fender trims until it's mounted. >>25615782OEM for now, had to use hub spacers because lol +25mm offset. After I refinish them I'll see if I can sell them and pick up a set of bronze TRD takeoffs. Which were originally the prototype FJC wheels but weren't used until the Taco.
>>25607618Update: went to look at it today. Drives fine and looks great. Cosmetically 9/10. I told him im passing on it because he couldnt give me any documentation on when the timing belt is due or when it was done last.Ive never owned a vehicle with a timing belt but my brain tells me i made the right choice.
>>25615874Dum. Turbo dumb if it was an 04 or earlier cuz those are non interference engines. Did you check the sticker on the radiator?Either way it gets done every 100k, mostly it's the water pump that goes first though. It's a job you can do in your driveway for under $500 in parts. Check Toyota Time with Timmy on yt.
>>2561591706. No sticker to be found anywhere on radiator, timing cover, ect
>>25615969Still if the belt is the only thing wrong I'd get it. You walked away so maybe he'll take a lower offer now

>old toyota>250,000+ miles>$10,000+Is this normal?
>>25617025No low ballers, he knows what he's got
>>25616648What year/model? I have an '07 Rubicon and can pop my transfercase in and out of 2hi and 4hi on the fly. I was told that to engage 4lo from 4hi it's best to put the trans in neutral, it smoothly goes into 4lo for me. I'm asking because I believe that at least the early JK Rubicons have the same transfercase as what's in the TJ
>>25617025unfortunately now it is
>>2561736596 grand Cherokee. Yes you absolutely need to put it in neutral less you want to call Satan. Mine also has a selec trac
>>25617411At least for 4 lo because I bought shit bricks when I did it while in drive
>>25617365ah yes 4 on the fly. fuck i miss my lj.
>>25617411Lol I did the same thing when I first tried it. I was told that you need to be moving at <5mph to shift into 4lo but got the grinding. I don't understand where this info comes from. I always shift trans into neutral at a stop now, then transfercase from 4hi to 4lo, smooth shifting and never had any problems>>25617417First Wrangler I was ever in was an LJ, they're awesome Jeeps
>>25616648RTFM. It takes 2 minutes.
>>25617699>>25616648>>25617365Directly from the JK manual:"With the vehicle rolling at 2 to 3 mph (3 to 5 km/h), shift an automatic transmission to N (Neutral) or depress the clutch pedal on a manual transmission. While the vehicle is coasting at 2 to 3 mph (3 to 5 km/h), shift the transfercase lever firmly to the desired position. Do not pause in transfer case N (Neutral).NOTE: Pausing in transfer case N (Neutral) in vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission may require shutting the engine OFF to avoid gear clash while completing the shift. If difficulty occurs, shift the auto-matic transmission to N (Neutral), hold foot on brake, and turn the engine OFF. Make shift to desired mode.NOTE: Shifting into or out of 4L is possible with the vehicle completely stopped, however, difficulty may occur due to the mating teeth not being properly aligned. Several attempts may be required for clutch teeth alignment and shift completion to occur. The preferred method is with the vehicle rolling at 2 to 3 mph (3 to 5km/h). Avoid attempting to engage or disengage 4L with the vehicle moving faster than 2 to 3 mph (3 to 5 km/h)."
Gonna need to do some more trimming if these are 35s
Buying a brand new Crosstrek with the 2.5L. If unplowed snow and frequent gravel roads are in its future would it be a complete waste to shell out $600 on a set of aluminum 3/16" primitive racing skid plates? I don't plan any recreational offroading but I live in a rural area and have a large property with some dirt "roads" I might occasionally want to take the car out onto for functional purposes. My farm truck has no skids and loves to just rip up these trails so something with a lighter foot print and some undercladding for dirt/rock/brush protection might be nice. It's going to be my daily driver though.Pic related.
Lotta work to fit 37s >>25618219Aluminimum will not take more than a single direct rock strike, it will however provide adequate protection from dirt road kick up.
>>25618389Yeah, it's pretty lightweight bolt on stuff. The front can go right on top of the factory tupperware and the effect on weight and clearance are extremely minor. I'm more worried about rubbing, brush and gravel while trying to avoid something that would reduce the day to day practicality of the car. I'm not putting A/Ts on the thing but there are dirt roads everywhere and when it snows three feet and I'm late for work I don't want to peel off parts of my car because I didn't have time to shovel.I want the car version of a gravel bike.Pic related is an example. I wouldn't get the oil drain cut though.
>>25618964Three feet is a bit of an exaggeration. More like multipoint turns in a fresh eighteen inches.
Damn that was expensive. 5gal for tranny juice and power steering flush. >>25618964Just don't hit those bolt heads on anything
>>25607530I reckon it's good for another 80,000 miles, what do you guys think?
>>25619106Fuckin send itAbout to do mine for the first time, both boots are torn.
Hey Anons, I need some advice.I currently am busriding a 22 Tacoma SR Utility without 4x4. Recently, I sold my MR2 for about $15k and just found out I can trade the Taco for $25k to the same place I bought it from (they sell at MSRP). I want to upgrade to a 4 door 4x4 SR5 or TRD OR, which are right in the price range I've got, but there's a slight issue: My truck is actually my mother's, she bought it for me as a "grad gift/birthday present" after my econobox threw a rod.She won't let me trade it in and trade up, and I keep telling her that the SR won't be worth nearly as much if the market ever decides to stabilize. Do people actually buy used versions of these things or does the value tank like I would expect for being 2wd? Does trading up sound like a bad idea? I landed a pretty solid job that has me financially comfortable and I would actually just go to a dealer and get my own but then I would feel bad just lumping my mom with a truck that she is paying for but doesn't have use for. I really want 4x4 and 4 doors, the fact that my truck is 4cyl, Access Cab, and 2wd makes me not want to do anything to it modwise for fear of it just not being 4x4 and feeling inferior. Also, I live in the Midwest so I deal with snow, I've considered getting AT Tires and a rear locker but from what I understand it still doesn't really help with that.
I have a '99 Suburban that I'd like to alter to be more resistant to an EMP (inb4 that's an unlikely event brah). However, I'm just getting into doing my own car work and have no idea if it's even possible to replace the major electronic components of my Burb with their old-school "mechanical" counterparts. Like putting in a manual transmission, a carburetor, window cranks, etc. Is that shit even feasible without gutting the car to a shell, or would I do better just putting out for a 1970's-era Burb/pickup truck?
>>25619097ah fuck. i forgot about power steering and brake fluid replacement. 180k is probably time for a flusharino.
>>25619608man. your mom is a very nice lady. where did she get the impression you wanted a 2wd or did she just go that route due to finances?
>>25619876>muh nukes>muh emp strikesLOL. Why are preppers such morons?
Wranglerchads... will a mountain bike fit in the back of a 2-door JK if I take the front wheel off or nah?
>>25619876Just get a pre-ODB Burb>>25620087Yeah I forgot PS and radiator. Of course Lexus uses some meme $40 a gal radiator fluid. Then I'm 100% fluid flushed.
Looking at a 2013 V6 4x4 Taco, double cab, Limited trim. Other than the obvious frame rot issue, anything else I should be on the look out for? It's got fairly low miles for the year (70k) and looks extremely clean, but you never know with stealerships.
>>25620298wranglerchads died in 06. rip. and no you’ll need to remove tire
>>25620361Bummer, I don't wanna get a bike rack. My top tube isn't straight so the spare tire racks won't work, I'd have to make do with a hitch rack and those are gay. Maybe I should just get a truck or lifted cuckover
>>25620099She went with the cheapest option due to finances. I agree, it was a very kind thing to do but now I feel like I'm stuck in a weird spot where I can't give it back without being a douche but I also can't do much with it that I'd like to.
>>25620462Women buying 70% of vehicles is why we're in this post 2006 hellscape.
Did I make a right choice?
>>25620643Looks clean m8>what is it
>>25620658An old niva. It is a little bit old and survived to this day from 1984.
>>25620670Paint looks great I figured it was one of those Russian cars designed in 1975 that was made unchanged until 2015.
>>25620714>one of those Russian cars designed in 1975 that was made unchanged until 2015.Nope. They find a way to put an injector instead of an ol' good boy carb in 1999. And after that they decided that the car is perfect.
>>25620410You could just ratchet strap it straight to the spare tire, that's what i do with my bike on my JKU. I do have 35s so the spare tire is a bigger 'mounting' platform and i also do not give a fuck about scratching the bike but it works.
>>25620726Kek does it have ODB?
Tomorrow we will see stick welding horrors bump.
>>25619514Glad I did all 4, I needed new pads too kek. Looks like the vac lines going for the Vacuum Hubs have totally disintegrated well but that'll be easy. Just the bit from the coupler to the hub, might just install manual hubs though.
>>25619608Everyone's family situation and social aspect is different, but it sounds like you need to give here the ultimatum you've outlined of either trading it in for something more suited (and letting her already established good will help fund your automotive evolution), or letting her keep it and going financially independent on your next purchase (is selling and paying out the loan an option?).It's up to you to have the difficult conversation.
>>25624085I was going to get new UCAs but $900 vs $80.. They're good enough for now. Plus this video gave me more confidence in the OEM ones. Great channel, he actually measures things for a change instead of shilling whoever has the best affiliate marketing program. https://youtu.be/huMztKaHsUE

See I told you it would fit
>BuT i CaN oNlY fIt 33s On My 5tH gEn 4BuMmErI told you not to worry about it wagie
>>25628310how well does it clearance the body with fully locked steering off camber / compressed? Not being a dick, generally curious. I have a GMT900 on 37's with a 3 inch lift so I am accustomed to the ways of the sawzall + hammer (goddamn square wheel wells)
>>25628344Well I haven't taken the shocks out to do the full articulation test since I just got home but I do need to grind 1 cunt hair on the DS and 3 cunt hairs on the PS off the body mount here >>25625750But I did drive up on wheel wheel ramp and went lock to lock and had no contact otherwise. Granted that's only like half articulated but it looks promising.Have to move the washer fluid tank out of the wheel well to the engine bay and maybe trim a half inch of plastic off the bottom of the rear bumper.And oh yes I beat the shit out of the inner wells w a sledge already.
When I take my 4Runner on dirt roads, it feels like the whole car is going to shake apart. I can only go like 10 mph before my eyeballs are rattling in my skull. My guess is that the shocks need to be replaced, but wanted to double check with you guys first. Thoughts? It's entirely OEM and handles fine on asphalt.
>>25628474bad shocks will make it feel like a bouncy castle anytime you go over a bump.are the dirt roads just wash boarded out.they get like that sometimes here and it gets worse the slower you go, sometimes just gotta keep some speed up.
>>25628490The roads I'm going over sometimes look like that. Typically when I speed up it gets worse though. When I hit a speed bump, it's not so much bouncy as it is a hard jolt.
>>25628310>>25628461Can tell just from the pics that’s going to rub like crazy lol
>>25628510Get something with progressive valved shocks then.
>>25628510shocks dont help much with the initial impact they just keep the springs from doing springy things after they have taken the initial impact.what tires/psi you running.running a little lower tire pressure can help to absorb some of the impacts, but can lead to bad street handling/bad wear if you go to low.
>>25611473He likes using his hands a lot
>>25628521I mean if I hadn't massaged the shit out of it. Probably move the caster forward a bit to help it out.Likely end up trimming the upper wheel fender, there's a little shelf people cut off to clear 35s, I was waiting to do the final trims until I had the 34s mounted. There's like a 3x6" section of the firewall people will cut out and fab in a new concave section to clear 37s.There are also aftermarket body mounts if you really want to go wild, only a couple hundred bucks too.
>>25628526Was going to go with KYB Gas-a-just, is that good?>>25628557Kumho Kinergys on manufacturer-recommended 29 PSI
>>25628855Never hear of them, check if it's progressive, digressive, or linear on their info page.
>>25628490>>25628526>>25628557>>25628964Think I figured out the issue. Above the rear axle there's these hard buttplug-looking things that only have like a half-inch of clearance between them and the axle. The drivers side has a little less space even, which explains why the vehicle sags slightly to one side. Do I need to replace the springs or the buttplugs?
>>25629215That's alot of key cone
>>25629226My passenger front shock is fucked but the rear ones are totally dry. Driver-side front looks fucky.The buttplugs seem to be rubber but are super hard.
>>25629235Yeah mine rode like shit b4
>>25629292I've heard it's night and day when you replace the shocks. I just want to be able to ride on dirt roads without the car shaking itself apart though. New springs are like $150 USD for some reason though, that blows.
>>25629492Ah, that's just OEM I guess. Can get aftermarket for less than $80 but I don't recognize any of these brands. Any recommendations? https://www.summitracing.com/search/part-type/coil-springs/year/1999/make/toyota/model/4runner?N=spring-positioning%3Arear%2Bdrivetrain%3Arwd%2Bride-height%3Astock
Here’s my 2000 Nissan Xterra. This little shit rattles going over bumps on the highway. It’s cost me so much money and take me to some pretty sweet places. 10/10 would make terrible financial decisions again. Latest thing I did was service the bearings, valve cover gaskets, and diy toe alignment. I found cracks on the brake pads and rotors so I’m swapping those out before my trip this weekend for the 4th of July.
>>25629531Get a set of Bilstien 4600 and some of their springs if you're not going to lift. Or OEM Tokico.
>>25629564People do seem to like them. How much can the roof rack hold static?
>>25629765Yea there’s definitely a following for them. They’re cheap to buy and maintain. My problem was that I bought a clapped out one for too much money. Not much. Iirc, the sticker says 125lbs but Ive seen people load up more than that.
Nice to see another GX on this board. I’m on 33s with a 2” OME lift and likely won’t go bigger unless I upgrade the rear diff and do some trimming. But I really like how it sits today.
flex plate chattering like a bitch again ffs
Tcase shifter on my new 30 year old landcruiser is bound up and it's not just the shift lever. Looks like the linkage to the actual case is stuck. Gonna drain n fill, and run forward and reverse while pulling the lever...hopefully it unbinds or it be rebuild time that I don't want to do.
>>25630854Hows the paint and dash holding up?
>>25630999Trips of good luck On my Land Cruiser I've got to do the $10 oring and seals on the actuator for my center diff; 60% of the time that's all it needs to fix it; dealers charge over $3500 and they probably sell the core on top of that.
>>25631319The truck cost $1200, so a $3500 repair bill isn't happening unless I want the engine rebuilt. I can't get engage either of the front or rear lockers without being able to throw it into 4L, and I'd like to know whether or not they work. According to the guys on ih8mud the LC transfer cases have extremely low instances of internal failure, so I'm cautiously optimistic that I can free it up with some grease (elbow, gear, and moly if need be).
>>25631079New dash from Lexus a few years ago and everything els is fine.
>>25631319Sometimes a lil moly is all you need>>25631398So pissed that Punjabi didn't get the dash fixed b4 the recall expired. I am glad she left all her BollywoodCDs in the changer
Should I do it bruthers?
See? Plenty of clearance in the rear. This is the best I could do in the driveway with ramps but even at full tuck there won't be any rubbing; just going to trim a little piece in the front and rear well as an extra precaution. >>25633113Likely yes. Price? Rust?
>>256331137500, no rust, 1997 v6, manual transmission.
>>256333567500, no rust, 1997 v6, manual transmission.
Front still will need a new section on the body mount but it's just a couple thou interference so after alignment with a slight caster adjustment it'll likely be fine as is.Need to find a big rock to really flex it to see where it will impact into the top of the well at full up travel; it doesn't look like I have much more hammering on the upper seam to do; this also will let me see where it will hit the body panels up top and finish that trim; the final boss will definitely be the firewall, at that point I'll probably just mod it to take 35 to 37s since rest will already be g2g. Would need a regear first.Speedo adjustment needs to happen b4 it's too late.>>25633401Base trim I assume? Still bitchen even if it's sloow.
>>25633484Just buy it m8Is that a factory color?
>leather steering wheel starting to crack and tearShould i go through the trouble of replacing it or just get a cover?
So I've got a Grand Cherokee WJ with Quadra-Trac, it's got 4All-time and 4lo. When should I use the 4lo? Everytime I hit offroad? Only when I'm about to get stuck? There's an indicator that says "Part time" on the dashboard everytime I'm on the 4lo. I'm new to 4x4 stuff
>>25631319What's the center diff lock do
Perhaps not offroad per sé, but I have an interest in purchasing a small, economical compact car from the 50s-70s like a Karman Ghia, VW Beetle, Ford Falcon, BMW 2002, Volvo Amazon, or something similar to build a car that can handle very light offroad usage for service roads and dog trails. Does anyone have any rough suggestions for parts for such a build? My main concern is suspension, extra lamps, and roof racks. I'm handy enough with engine work I'm confident regardless of what I purchase I should be able to get working well, but my attention is focused on an active project so I'm hoping to get a suitable car and have it setup for this within two years.
>>25634310Forgot to attach image
>>25634304Evenly distributes force between front and rear axles>>25634310Gonna be alot of work for those old girls best of luck
Thought my transfer case may have been bound up, but I soaked it in some pb for a few hours and rocked the truck back and forth while pulling on the shifter. After about 10 minutes it came loose and almost sent it into my garage. Front and rear lockers both function as they should and I found $7.57 in change when I took the console out.
>>25633113>97 Limited is my DDBest vehicle I've ever owned....if you can eat the fuel economy it's a solid buy.
>>25634683I knew your trips were going to be good luck
>>25634724haha thanks man. Sometimes I have a tendency to treat things designed to be beat on like pussies....it's a metal rod connected to gears. I was likely not going to break anything. Does your center diff not engage, or did you just notice the parts are worn?
>>25634744I also overcarefulling gearboxes. It doesnt engage anymore. You're supposed to split the case and replace the seals from the inside but if you're careful you can remove the actuator. It's just kind of a bitch to get lined up and I'm worried about timing it properly in reassembly, you can tear the new seal if your drag it over the gears. Seen a couple videos so should be OK.
>>25633862No, it’s a wrap.
>>25633113This thing doesn’t have any diff locks, anyne know about how much it would cost to have someone install rear lockers?
>>25635595>to have someone instalEither shop for a limited that comes with the rear locker or do it yourself. If you start paying people to turn wrenches on an ancient 4runner you're gonna be broke.
>>25634641How is it split usually?
>>25635595Do the front first.
>>25636279Take all the bolts out a hit it w a prybar at the seam if I had to guess, never done it.
>>25636294Put a locker in the front axle b4 you do the rear, if you're only doing 1.
>>25636303Fucking whyIt's harderSteering is shitTendency to break things if you hit obstacles at speed with your front
>>25629564You and your rig are awesome. Never stop
>>25636314Same reason fwd has better traction than rwd uphill
>>25634683jesus dude. your karma is on fire.
>not one person said a deep dish 24mm won't fit on the tranny fill plugMy night is ruined.
Is there any reason I shouldn’t buy this tomorrow?https://sacramento.craigslist.org/cto/d/antelope-2002-toyota-4runner/7498396431.html
>>25637060Well bought not built but it doesn't look terrible at first blush. Get it up to 80 and do a panic stop.
>>25637060>long travelLots of frequent maintenance and noise. Is that stance legal in your state? Def get pulled over here with big fender flares.
>>25634709I would be driving it to work every day,1 mile each way. Other than that weekend hiking/camping truck, and it’s a manual transmission, i miss driving a manual so much.
>>25634318bainbridge island public dock :O
>>25637170Yup. I drive to the gym 6 days a week and other than that it's almost all recreational. That's how I can rationalize it...you should buy it.
>>25637155Gayest post I’ve seen in a long time. Borderline yuropeen
>>25638205Just saying DDing a long travel will be a challenge, frequent bushings changes. It'll be an even bigger challenge if he's getting pulled over every week.

>>25638404Whatever queer, make decisions with incomplete information.
>>25638272>>25638404>>25638450I dailied an XJ with an 8.5" long arm kit for a few months and it sucks. I'd imagine the 4R is probably a smoother ride, but they're slow to begin with....i can't imagine how bad it would be on 35-37's. On the point of legality - it's almost certainly a non issue
How hard would it be to put a manual transmission in a '09 Silverado? I'm pretty sure GM made the 6-speeds up to at least 2007.
Bored of my wrx. Looking to get into off reading. Whats the best platform I can get for ~10kish? Must haves:4 doorsNice to haves:Manual transmission (is manual good for off reading?) Full size spare
>>256387412 door Tahoe
>>25638741If you get a stick (you're basically getting a Wrangler or XJ) you should get a high torque starter so you can start it without the clutch if you stall on a steep section.
>2012 4runner>50,000 miles>$25kShould I go for it?
>>25638887Seems like alot to me. Been much more satisfied buying a 4th gen for 13k and putting 10k into it. Double the miles but 2UZ a best
>>25638904I wish I could justify paying over $10k for a 4th gen thoThere aren’t any around me with less than 150-160k for like $15k
>>25638887Also found:>2015 4runner>60,000 miles>$27k
>>25638904I'm with you on this. If I've got $25k to spend on a vehicle that I don't need to daily tomorrow I'm buying something for substantially less and building it the way I want (Or for that kind of money paying a shop monkey to do it for me).
>>25638925Yeah thats why I got the GX instead, cost more new, costs less now. Well every car has gone up this year but you knew that.
>>25638940That’s the thing. It’s something I plan to daily>>25638930Also, scratch this idea, I ran the VIN and found auction photos of it with front end damage
>>25629564I just bought a second gen off road edition with the rear locker, keeping it stock for the time being.
>>25638949>That’s the thing. It’s something I plan to dailyDo you have a car to drive while it gets built? Makes sense if you don't obvious.
>>25638965Nah. I’ve been renting cars for several months now since the Jeep ZJ I drove for 15 years finally crapped out at close to 300k.
>>25638977Word. Don't sleep on the 3rd gens...they are dogshit slow, like you think it's been regeared while you were asleep slow, but they're wonderful.
>>25638949Mines a DD too, just work on it at night or the weekends. Make your woman to do grinding and painting while you do the hard stuff.
>>25638986I started looking for 3rd gens but they’re all insanely overpriced and in dogshit condition around me, which is why I figured I’d shell out a bit more for a newer gen that’s in decent shape that I won’t have to do as much work on6th gen doesn’t seem to be happening any time soon, and I hate all the news I’m hearing about it so far
>>25639002>Letting my wife within 10 feet of any car with a grinderI'm NGMI>>25639012That's absurd. They're great, but so old by now. I guess the meme is just too deep. I'll sell you mine when I get done baselining the FJ80 I bought a few weeks ago.
>>25639020Just put one of the fat hockey puck grinding disks on it she'll be fine. Gotta train em first and don't leave them alone for the first few hours.
>>25639020That’s the problem. Everyone’s in on the meme and it’s hard to find a listing that doesn’t list “3RD GEN!!!!!!” as a feature worth a $5k premiumIf I can find a decent 4th gen for less than $8k, I’d go for it as well, but they’re plenty old as well.I’ve set my budget for $25k and I’d really like to get into something by the end of summer. Im tired of renting
>>25639035Nah, mine would find a way to cut a fuel line....plus that's my time to sit and drink with my dog.
>>25639038>4th gen for less than $8kI'd go for the V8 and under $8 is gonna be a tall ask.
>>25611131FUGGGGG YEAHNothing like new meats.
>>25639045Wait a couple months they'll be cheaper. Need to figure out my mpg avg now that I've added the new meats. I'm sure this 13 is just from idling in the driveway, right?>>25639040Gotcha, I actually like my wife so we'd be together anyway. Sometimes I let her put shoes on.
>>25639089>cheaper in a couple of monthsHow so?
>>25639089>I actually like my wife so we'd be together anywayI like my wife too man...That does not mean I want her to be in the garage with me while I'm messing with my cars. How long ya been married? Got a kid yet?
>getting marriedGay. Just date some cute early twenties Asian med student

>>25639267>Oh good to hear, people marry people they hate to be around and I just can't understand it. Like pick someone else you crazy bitch.I only asked because we've been together for 11 years and for the first few I was like you. Eventually I realized that if you spend too much time with anyone, even someone you REALLY get along with, you will do nothing but fight. Now we spend time doing our own things when we have time. We have a 5 year old too, so our together time is mostly spent paling around with her. Unfortunately my kid hates every loud garage sound, so most jobs outside of an oil change are a no go.

I can't think of any instance where my life hasn't improved after marriage.>>25639292First step is realizing it's your fault. Second step is realizing women basically don't have agency so when they step out of line, it's your fault. Here's what I used to unfuck my shit. Pilot first (there is a condensed video if you desire) then the actual series.https://youtu.be/VVV_UUABUtEhttps://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLh8oUx_ONafVSS0Sk3ToWOdTIjivPbcDIIts about 80% accurate. Patrice is a childless nihilist who died young so if you filter it through the lense of "how to find a wife and not get cucked" instead of his "how to get a wife and 2 or 3 live in girlfriends" lense you'll be successful. All women are the same. >>25639301Plz do not have sex w dog, Leaf
>>25639356I know it’s my fault. Took me a long time to fix everything that was wrong with meTook me until my 30s to get out of poverty/homelessness and think I’m finally starting to have some sort of direction Always thought I needed to be established already to start a family, but I’m getting uncomfortably close to 40 and seeing others with families, homes, kids, etc… it’s all starting to get to meI’m also pretty socially inept… I can’t hold an interesting conversation and it hurts
>>25639379Might actually go look at that 2012 4Runner tho
>>25639379Don't do anything until you watch all 14 of those episodes. You can improoov and that's sexy to all women.>>25639571Thanks King
>>25639309Hum...Okay how about an iguana? The guilt thing is something you should lean into and only jack off to hot women you absolutely hate. Remember to picture yourself degrading them in unspeakable ways.
>>25639701Would rather just be with a real woman. Tbh fapping just does not do it for me. Can’t remember the last time I did it
>>25639915Well then try the internet....I'm sure any 40 year old on there would be so far beyond desperate it wouldn't be too hard. If it were me though, by that late in the game I wouldn't want the amount of baggage and children that will absolutely accompany a flesh and blood woman. Maybe join an offroad club near you too. They're pretty gay but at least where I'm at, very accepting.

>>25642390Are there trucks in your country? I only saw 1 Ram on all of Trash Island (UK)
>>25642422UK is not Europe man. And yeah, there are pickups, this mine but they're obviously not popular like in US, whoever owns one it's like 3rd car or so.
>>25642587Or a speedo gear. If your ratio is off you maynl not be getting all the miles you should in the numerator.Or a shift program if it's a slushbox.
>>25642587EyuuuupIts on the list, $3k plus install. That's not including a pair of arb lockers.
>>25642601That's a good point I hadn't considered. I plan to get one of those Speedohealer boxes eventually, I'm 5mph slow at 45 and only gets worse as I go faster. Like 10 on the highway.

I have a 2009 Silverado 1500. Could I put a NV3500 transmission in it to covert it to a 5-spd manual? Also, is it possible to convert from fuel injection to carb?
Got the bleeders out of the front to calipers with a few very quick tack welds and replaced them. Didn't have anyone around to bleed the brakes, so I decided to paint the wheels instead. Didn't fix the pitting more than some self etching primer, but they look worlds better after 5 coats and 3 coats of clear.
>>25646957Bitchen, I did my spare quick and dirty as a test but looked shitty so I'll do it proper after vacation. Got some 2 part paint and sealer. Did get the rock lights installed, salvaged the running board lights and ziptied them to the frame, upgrayd'd it to 6000k LEDs and made a yuge difference

>>25648024Buy it, about what I paid. Just check the center diff is working, the timing belt sticker by radiator for last time it was done. Can get a maintenence check w the VIN through Lexus if they had it dealer serviced. See if the airbags are crusty, mine were pristine but still converted to springs.Make sure the speakers are all working.Check for rust.See if the secondary air injection emission module has been replaced or failed. It's not an actual problem if it goes but it is a bitch and expensive to replace cuz it's jammed between the firewall and motor. There's a block off delete plate mod available.There's a hidden spot that dirt collects behind the front upper splash guards, drill a speed hole, I posted a pic ITT
>>25648421That canopy is fucking cool. Is it part of the tent or can you get it without?
>>25648352>check for rustBesides the frame and normal places, is there any specific panels the GX likes to rust at? According to carfax it was a Massachusetts vehicle for the first 100k miles (now TX), but the original owner had it serviced at Lexus every 5k miles starting at 30k so im hoping anything i find is minimal.

Anyone have this happen to them?got a 2001 xterra with 4x4 and a manual transmission. Went to change the oil in said manual transmission. It was topped off with ATF, still kinda red not too worn out.Owners manual says 70w90 oil only, no ATF substitutes. Should I just leave it alone or change it out? She shifts fine and doesn't smell burnt or anything. Is there some boomer lore being using ATF? already bought picrel...
>>25648864Worst I've seen is around the spare tire and on the rear bumper, on the inside.
Frens I need some help. I've got a stock Grand Cherokee WJ 2.7CRD. I'm looking for a 2in (4cm) lift and my first option is picrel OME kit. Question is, they have a MD and HD spring options, HD springs being stiffer for extra weight (+50kg front and +50kg rear), like metal bumpers, winch, rooftop bed, etc. Since mine is a diesel, it weights around 100kg more than the 4.7L gas version, would the HD option be a better option for me or should I stick with the MD?
>>25649650I think you probably want the HD in that case. t. Familiar with these springs
