        I'm just about to embark on a dual cab 40 on an 80 series chassis. Should be fun.

          Sounds great. Have you given any thought to chassis/wheelbase length? 80 wheelbase is a lot shorter than 45. When I was doing measuring it seemed that you'd really need to extend the 80 chassis to get the wheels in the right spot and still have room for a reasonable length tray on the back. Keep us posted!

                I haven't been on this forum much at all, so thought I'd have a look around. I bought an '80 BJ42 that had been stored in a shed for 5 years. I've been slowly getting it roadworthy, pretty well sorted now, just need to clean up the paint as it's got a few unsightly rust stains. Anyway now the motivation has kicked in to actually get it on the road I might pop in a bit more often, but it does seem rather quiet in this neck of the woods...

                  It does indeed 40cent. I just finished an on board air system and just building my cage for the spare, tank and second battery at the moment. Also have to fix up my front main seal too.

                      It is a bit like a ghost town in here!
                      My latest acquisition is a unmolested fj45 chassis for my build up which came with a few extras including engine, gearbox/transfer and diffs. The diffs are the early type though with constant engaged hubs and was wondering if anyone here has any information regarding them.
