I am hoping to take this up north close to Rhinelander to "The PipeLine" for some offroad fun this weekend. We'll see if this happens. Pictures of course!

Short Video of the fun wheeling trip a few weeks ago! There are more videos but I need to get them trimmed.
https://www.facebook...426527918653183

 

And now some photos from the day.

 

Heading up north!

 

 

 

 

Old Service trail in the Pipeline.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The ever furious rock hill at the Pipeline.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Got both axles stuck on top of some rocks, there was no getting out with open diffs.

 

 

Gave it a tug and off it came.

 

What we have over come.

 

Which was nothing to what came next!

 

 

 

 

Made it to our rest stop, grilling area!

 

My photographer 

 

 

 

After lunch we were back underway.

 

 

Picked up a hitch hiker as well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Made it to our final stopping point and then headed out.

 

 

 

 

Stopped at the bar and had a few drinks and some good food. Pretty fun time for all!

^ NICE!!

 

wait, open diffs?

Wut the hell?!!  Get that thing locked up!!

 

Cruisers have some sweet locking systems (not that i know the specifics)! 

My buddy's 96 (you've seen pix) has the awesome factory set-up.  Anyhoo, I'm sure you know what you need/would like, and I'm sure a major part of it i$...

 

ciao, gunna check out the video now!

Yeah the Factory E-lockers are nice. Those only came as an option '93-97 FJ80s. 1991/92 did not have lockers as an option in America. But then again, the 3F-E was available as a motor in these over seas, most were Diesel or the 4.5 Turbo. America got the 4.5 Straight-6 (1FZ-FE) in '93-'97 but were prone for HG failure.

 

The 3F-E seems to be a pretty solid bullet proof engine and is indeed better without all the Emissions gunk on it. The big thing people do is swap in the Cummins 4BT in place of either the 3F-E or 1FZ-FE. I'm told some GM transmission will need to be used with this conversion, but I wouldn't mind the 4BT in mine. More power and more torque.

 

Again, back to Lockers. Yes I really want locking axles for mine. But it is pretty spendy to get locking axles unless you can buy a Locked truck on the cheap and rebuild the axles. The axle cases in the'91-'92 are actually a little different were the Pinion is and lockers can not be swapped into them. Non locked axles from a '93 can have locking diffs swapped in as the case is already designed for it.

 

So thats my understanding on everything Lol :P

Cool, looks like you had a fun day. I miss mine, kinda, sometimes lol… I DON'T miss the MPG. Also as far as the 4BT swap goes, you can use the stock trans in a 91/92, because its a full mechanical, hydraulically controlled trans. In the 93-97 they have a TCU and you either need to swap to another trans, or get a piggyback TCU and program it etc. I still believe the 91/92 is the way to go, even without the locker option. That 3FE engine is bulletproof even if it can't get out of it's own way, downhill, with a tailwind… I will probably own another FJ80 at some point, it is for sure a sweet rig. I convinced myself if I go that route again I am just going to buy one that is DONE, diesel, lockers, armor, racks, air etc etc. It will be worth the coin if I get serious.

 

Keep up the updates!!

Oh! Thats a good piece of advice. I didn't know you could still use the A440F with the 4BT. I will actually have to find a swap writeup on ih8mud and see what the details are, I was told the 4BT is pretty much mechanical, so there really isn't any wiring harness to deal with.

 

Anyway, yeah the MPG is always fun when standing at the pump, and since I need to run premium to keep it from pinging so much, it sometimes get spendy. I took the Loyale to the gas station a couple days ago, and $17 filled it, with premium. Our Low grade 87 is under $3 right now, so Premium is under $4!
