i grew up arounf these little guys . the one on my profile is actually a LJ81 two seater pick-up (flat bed drop sides 0.8 liter power house) . when i lived i miami (98>10)i also collected (yes for free!) a lj10 without engine .
i recently found one in seattle and had it rebuilt then ship to france .
it is a 359cc 2 stroker 2cylinders air cooled beast (no , no racing intended with this great grandpa !) .... sorry i'm getting out of track .
LJ80 were built from 79 till 82 then SJ410 came then SJ413 and the one you know better the samurai .
but before the 80 there was lj50 , 20 and LJ10 .
i am really into robby's way of "doing it".
make me recall schlesser and magnes his navigator that i came to know .
henri is and will always be my master .
the navigator is the guide without him robby will be blind , that's why i asked TOG to , if possible , give us the helmet conversation of rg and jc .
i'm sure will get something eventually .
al right sorry for the overflow .... i'm passionnate huh !!! lol
c ya around
hey , thx for the link . am i that bad so you are pointing to some advise ??? hahaha ! i am , well , was , when early teen , till mid 20's (i am now 40) a navigator on board a suzuki LJ80 , yes we raced these things ! lol . ( top speed like 40km/h in the woods ! lol )
local/national trail rides .
again thx , always good to learn .
Yeah Sasha is kinda like that when she goes to doggy day care , we get within a 1/4 mile or so and she starts barking and bouncing around in the truck . We can't even say the word Jen ( the owner of the day care ) without her getting excited
Yea no worries, thought I would just pass on some of my knowledge base and give you the other for if you needed some 411 on the spot lol.
I love watching Pruett in the DP's, takes me back to when he ran Trans Am. The 24hrs should cure some of my cravings for more racing for now LOL.
How ya doing down there with this weather, Dam has it been blowing up a storm here. I got tree branches down everywhere, dont know how they missed hitting the cars. Stay dry and safe down there, at least if you get stuck behind another cattle truck you wont notice all the shit coming out of it :P lol
Hey zoomsss, just incase you didn't notice I sent you some info about your Dakota to your in box, I thought I was gonna be long winded lol. The sun is trying to shine through today, guess I better try to take advantage of it since were suppose to get some big storms next week, I need to get me 3 wheelers prepped for incase of snow. Now I will have Dakar withdrawls until Daytona starts :(
Hows the fog down there? Got the sunshining to day but shit was it cold this morning lol.
Ok tell about the Dakota, Why do you think it needs a new cat? Is the motor using oil? When I worked at the dodge dealership years ago, we changed cats left and right on those things, great truck...bad cats lol. Changing a stupid ass cat is what started my back aches :p There is one machine shop in Toulumne that is kick ass with motors, they have some high dollar equipment in that place. Most places I know just swap in a reman and you never know what kind of piece of shit you get sometimes, though sometimes you get a good 1 lol
Arnold is nice but there is nothing in the way of stores so I can could see why they did. We have a tractor supply going up and Kohls is supposed to be going in were Gotchshalks used to and rumors of penny's going in were mervyns was. The shopping center in Riverbank is like a candy store for me, its usually cheaper for me to drive down to the orange box and get what I need than getting it up here.
The joy of no bi-annual smog how I love that, though I do have a smog liscence lol. I like coming off the hill just to goto cold stone, that is so worth it :) And until we get some kind of department style store we still have to goto Modesto for clothes for the kids. On the upside though, that means In n Out Burgers lol
What you got some locals moving in near ya, around here its four wheel drives and car trailers if your local lol. I miss the city for its convience of things but thats about it, but when all you have is walmart its hard not to lol.
The weather has been up and down, 1 day t-shirt weather the next im looking for my heavy jacket. I dont much in the way of the fog like you do
