Re: Lwb daily drive and laner build

Yes, J20a with a 4 speed auto so my dad can use it for Laning when we go out on days where he can’t use the Jimny...... he doesn’t want to scratch it :lol:

Re: Hi

I’ve not had any luck trying to do it for one of my LJ80s.


Spoke to the DVLA and they said if I just apply for a v5 using a v62 with as many details as I can for the vehicle then a cover letter stating that the reg is unknown they can usually still process it all.

Are these the same just a different brand?
Not quite as strong as the RCVs but you won't break them on 33s, well unless you really drive like a knob :lol:

Re: Lwb daily drive and laner build

I would recommend 90x90 box, trust me its easier :lol: The stock sills are 80mm wide that the bottom but 90mm wide at the top so you need to pull the body in to meet 80x80.

Re: Making a RUF/YJ kit, a few questions.

Just keep stock steering arms, there's no need to change the steerign set up at all.

Re: Transfer box and diff ratio calculations for 33s

How different were the speeds? They shouldn't be any different as thats an old verion of the same sheet. Did you make sure 5th gear had the correct ratio as there are two different ratios available. Also I always input ratios to 3 decimal places. Jimny rear diffs are EXACTLY the same diffs as 413/sa...
