Default New toy 94 FZJ80 4WU 3-link etc

So I off'd the FJC. Was a great rig but was time to switch things up. Decided to jump on this 94 FZJ80 when it popped up on Pirate. Has a rebuilt 1FZ with 200k on the dial, and she drove home from San Jose to San Diego cruising at 70mph one hand on the steering wheel.
Parts list from the previous owner

- 4Wheel Underground 3Link Front Suspension
- 14" Dual Rate Radflo Coilovers w/ Remote Reservoir
- 2" Radflo Air Bumps
- RuffStuff Specialties 1 Ton Steering
- Hellfire Knuckles and High Steer Arms
- 30 Spline Longfields
- Marlin Crawler Transfercase Reduction Gears
- Slee 4" Rear Coils and OME Shocks
- Rear Lock-Right Locker
- Extended Stainless Steel Braided Brake Lines
- Custom Front Winch Bumper (.25" Plate)
- 12K lb Super Winch w/ in-cab controls
- 6" Trailworthy Fab LED Lightbar
- 4x4 Labs Rear Bumper w/ dual swing outs (Tire & Dual Gas Cans)
- OPOR Sliders w/ Kick Outs
- Custom Transfercase Crossmember/Skid Plate (.25" Plate)
- 37" Goodyear MTRs w/ Spare (New, Only 1000 Miles)
- 17x9 Black Steel Rims
- Alpine Head Unit w/ Kicker 6" Speakers in all doors
- Uniden Bearcat CB w/ WagonGear's Antenna Replacement 2' Firestick Mount
- LED Cab Lights and Reverse Lights
- Two Guys Trail Gear LED Rock Lights

It's currently getting a set of 5.29's to get the meats moving a little easier along with an ARB front locker.

Short term plans- fix a few pressing body issues, small dent in a pillar but has broke seal at the rain gutter so sealing that up is priority. Replacing front fenders and redoing the cut (yes that is bondo you see). Opening up rear wheel wells by taking out 1" lip to inner fender. May be able then to adjust rear bumps to give more up travel without rubbing.

Need to get out and wheel it hopefully soon. Then I can see where to take it next. There's definite room for improvement on the rear end.

Few pics

Not that I'm a aware of. Ran the carfax etc before picking it up and the guy who I bought it from got it stock 6 years back and threw these parts on. Definetly an awesome bumper, I need to add some bracing for the tire carrier though or a stronger spindle. Tends to shake quite a bit with the 37 hanging off the back.

So little update. Installed some 5.29 gears, ARB front locker and the ARB dual compressor in the back. Left the lockrite, worked well so until I find a need for something different it'll be fine. Getting some driveline vibes which apparently is normal on these when lifted 4"+, so picked up these MT adjustable upper and lower links to correct the pinion angle. Also plan on pulling the rear shaft and rebuilding the u joints. Front is a DC and is working great.
Replaced the inner axle seal, wasn't even seated anymore so new HD on both sides. Knuckles still looked fresh.

14gau backer plate installed with rubber isolators at the compressor

All the panels still open, looks clean


Easy access for filling tires or running air tools

Bus hidden under the floor and the switches where there useless coin slots were


Used some weld in bungs to make a mount for my highlift off the rear swingout. Keeps it hidden, and actually helps reduce some of the tire shake I had with just the tire




New links, only installed the lowers so far just to ditch the stock bent ones prior to the shakedown run. Uppers when I find time to mess with the adjustments and the pinion angle. Rig already had an adjustable panhard so that worked out well.


Rolled through Big bear this weekend for the adopt a trail work day on Lower Larga with SOCALFJ's. Scouted some new trails open for adoption and then ran JB Sunday








Really happy with the rig. Need to focus on getting the rear situated to match the front. Losing sheet metal is next so the tires can stuff a little higher and I'm not living on the super dropped bumps. Taking it out again this weekend for the annual AAT BBQ at the discovery center.
