Here in Oregon they do pull you over for it... We had to ziptie one onto the 240sx because it didnt have a front bumper so he had it displayed in the windshield, still got a fix-it ticket for it
I may just get one and put it on for show purposes

That thing looks better already! It is coming along nicely man. Needs something to break up all the white, wow! A black molding, mirrors or something lol.
You can make a thread if you'd like, you are also welcome to post updates here as well. I guess this is the Landcruiser thread

The 3F-E is a slow revving motor, so these aren't the quickest off the line, shifting around 2500-3000rpm at most, with moderate acceleration. I was told not to rev these motors to hard, as they are an OHV Pushrod motor, but then again, so is the EA81. So I don't get it? Why wouldn't this motor handle higher RPMs well? Pushrod V8s can take higher rpms.
Anyway, these do ride nice, and ride even better with new heavier duty suspension. It will be firm and bouncy, but smooth I like driving the FJ80 a little more then the Subaru, but the MPG kinda sucks, if you know what I mean...!

By the way, the other day I was walking in the street, doing some errands and I took my Cellphone to do a Phone call, then I saw coming on the Street, a Land Cruiser similar to yours, but with Factory Snorkel; so instead of doin' my Phone call, I shoot a Picture of it with my Cellphone's Camera...
The picture looks somehow, stretched due to the crappy cellphone's camera and the fast movement I did to catch that car on a picture... but here it Goes:

Wish I had lockers!

Wish I had lockers!
I think lockers are great, and also somewhat overrated on these things. I wish I had them too but with as heavy as they are, it takes a LOT to even get in a situation where one tire is off the ground enough to be "stuck". IF I get to a situation where I end up re-gearing, I'll probly put an auto locker in the rear, maybe..... I dunno..... So far I'm really liking the heck outta mine! I've got most of the necessary stuff to completely de-smog it, which I gueass will help with the idle and lower RPM smoothness. It really is a tank.... You can literally cruise the land in these things haha..... :-p

Comin' along nicely tom!!
I know this is an older post, but I just had to respond.....since I live in Moab
here are a few clips in chronological order. . .
and with my new (to me) UADM dual range 5MT
that's enough teaser-ing for now, sorry for distraction, but try and make a trip down here and we'll go wheeling (you've chatted with my buddy with the black FJ80 on other forums)
