Refresh my memory, did you do the nutter bypass?

I had a Jacobs system on my CJ and was less than impressed. Didn't notice any kind of improvement at all. Just a pushy sales person and twice the price for a gapping tool I bought elsewhere.

This was over 20 years back so maybe they are doing something better now.

I'd go HEI personally.

I already have a Weber, but I'll look into this.

The OLD MSD 6 series analog boxes use to be awesome, however for about the last 10 years reliability has steadily run downhill. I still have the original 6AL I bought and it has out lasted several vehicles I have owned. It is really a nice unit. CDI ignition systems aren't necessary, but are nice (see F1). M&W, & Autronic are the only CDI ignition systems I would install in anything I own or in any of my customers vehicles. They are proven worldwide in the toughest conditions and don't give up even under the most strenuous conditions (Think blown alky fueled rail cars, rally cars, etc). MSD hand builds specific units for NASCAR and they STILL have to run 2 because one is likely to fail. Turn left, turn left, turn left, turn left *speaker crackles*"How's that ignition system doing on that smooth paved road with your naturally aspirated carbureted vehicle?"

Sold my LGT about 2 months ago. Picked up an A3TDI and a 81' CJ5. The CJ5 was my Grandfathers and only has 40k miles on it.

I've got my eye on this to go on the replacement rack I'm building.

Any of you guys have any experience with the higher-output LED bars? Friend of mine has this but in the 10" model. kinda wondering if two 10" @ 1/2 the price of one 30" is the better way to go.

hmm... thanks for that, it was a useful read.

i need to rethink my rack design. most trails i see have low branches i already hit all of the time, im not sure of where to mount it to give it some protection while maintaining proper aim.

Normally, when I see a new gen FJ I think of this...



But the 2011 Spec Edition looks great...

Common donor replacement engine. I still wish I'd kept a 258 in mine rather than bastardizing it with a Buick 6. Who knows? It might still be running.

It would have been nice to know before I bought the valve cover gasket for a Jeep 258, because they're not the same.

I chose to further bastardize it with a GM 4.3.

Of course, it hasn't run in years as I lost my cozy climate controlled work space meaning it's no where near done.

Any suggestions for a new set of tires for my Hilux? I do most of my driving on-road, but I still want a capable off-road tire - my list so far is:
- Bridgestone Dueler D693/694
- Cooper S/T or ATR
- Yokohama Geolander A/T-S

I've been fairly pleased with my BFG All Terrain T/A KOs, at least in the dry and light offroad, however; since it has started snowing and raining, I'm not really impressed. They only have 10,000 miles on them and are wearing okay, but I don't think I'll use them another winter.

BFG has a Commercial TA that looks pretty promising. Lots of good reviews on tirerack.
