What's 80SCOOL all about?



A forum for 80 Series Landcruiser owners to exchange technical information.

This represents the combined *opinion* of the group and should be used as a guide only, as to what is known/possible with 80 Series, as adjustments, technical tips, and accessories. It is in no way definitive, nor authoritative, nor even all encompassing - it is the experience of the users of this online group - to date -and it is constantly being added to.
