I admit it isn't the best expo 80 out there but I made the effort to make it as good offroad as I can while still being able to go off into the back country for days.

The tires are all but bullet proof so i'm not to worried about shredding one but I do carry a spare. The 3FE is the most rock solid land cruiser motor ever and I carry lots of birfs and other spares if I need to use them.

Very nice... I'd love to see so e photos of the overhead display for the sub-fuel tank, and the DVD head-rest monitors.
Thanks. Here you go.

Sub fuel tank overhead display.

Here's the dual tank fuel filler. Pull the knob to fill the sub tank.

And here's the headrest monitors. The DVD player rests at the bottom of the center console facing the backseats.

Thanks! I have a Long-Ranger/Man-a-fre secondary tank which uses the same OEM filler setup. But my gauge is a simpler LED and I like your setup better. The altimeter is also an interesting option, although I have an aircraft altimeter in my 80.

The DVD screens look nice too. I'll have to think about more DVD time for the kid is a good idea or not. :)

Thanks again for posting the photos.

You're welcome. When I was searching for an 80, gas tank capacity and range was something I was concerned with. If I hadn't found this one one I probably would've gone the same route you did.

As for the altimeter I typically rely on my own, internal one - if the trail goes up I'm going higher in elevation and if the trail goes down I'm going down in elevation :). This is probably also why my GPS unit never makes it into the truck on road trips but the maps do.
