Re: LJ80 hood compatibility with LJ20 tub/fenders/grill

Pretty sure it'll fit, but I'd have to measure to be sure.

Re: LJ20 transfer case mounts (cross-compatibility w/LJ50 or LJ80?)

I think that's a little short. I measured one this morning and it is about 113mm from center to center, or 4.45".

Re: Not a Suzuki meet

I really need to get down there for one of these; I've been wanting to go for years but am always booked for that weekend.

Re: Moab - April 2018

Couple of videos from the trip. These got posted to FB, but I just realized I never linked them here.

Re: LJ Interior Courtesy Light

They are no longer available from my local Suzuki dealer, but I was able to order one from Japan last year for my mom's LJ80.

Re: LJ20 transfer case mounts (cross-compatibility w/LJ50 or LJ80?)

The LJ50/80 transfer case mounts will not work; the base is longer than the LJ20 mount.

I'm not sure if a Samurai boot will fit for that lower boot. I can still order the boot new though. It runs about $15.

Re: LJ Interior Courtesy Light

Good info Tom, thanks! I bet that is a lot brighter than the stock light too!

For those who want all original, the stock interior light assy. is still available (or at least it was last year.)

Re: Wiring the Samurai distributor in LJ80

From your description it sounds like you have the same setup, except the pink wire may be a different color. Can you post pics of your set up?

Great story and a beautiful picture! Looks like a good area for an LJ get together... :wink: Watch out for mountain lions - we had a fatal attack here a couple of weeks ago. First one in nearly 100 years, but the cougar attacked two guys on mountain bikes, they fought him off, and after they were ri...

Why did you go to Asia? What Part?

Who was it that lived in Japan? I called him and talked to him on the phone back then. Russ?
That was Fab (Scott).

Re: Moab - April 2018

Yes we did. Mid 70's to low 80's every day. Saw some thunderheads the day we were in Arches, but the rain was evaporating before it hit the ground. We got a few drops that night but that was all.

Re: Moab - April 2018

We're in Sand Flats, B15 and 16. There is no stock 15" wheel except the Tacoma wheels and the 15x4.5" wheels on the LJ20V. I have a set of 4 16" wheels with tires with me.

Re: Moab - April 2018

I'm heading out this afternoon, should get to Moab sometime tomorrow evening. I might be interested in the single Tacoma wheel; I have two sets of four but am using five of them (including my spare). I think I have a set of stock (16x4.5") wheels I can throw on the trailer in case you make it.

Re: Moab - April 2018

We are going to try and firm up plans for Moab this week. My local club meeting is tonight and we will be talking about it there. I did verify that hotels are still available for the week we are there. Campgrounds too, but everything is pretty expensive. Even "cheap" hotels (i.e. Super 8) are over $...

Re: Moab - April 2018

Small world indeed. I remember wanting to buy your green LJ10 when it was here in Seattle, but the seller wanted $4,000 which was much more than I had at the time. He ended up selling itto a guy in Idaho, who in turn sold it to you, so you are the third owner of that rig I know. And good call on Twi...

Re: Moab - April 2018

Sounds like a fun trip! Moab in April is great albeit very busy. Maybe someone needs to make a spur trip up to SLC to pick up a spare LJ10!?! :wink: :wink: Why don't you bring it down to Moab? The LJ's always generate a lot of interest on the trails and around town. If there is a decent one for sal...
