    Anyone know if there was ever an option of a gearbox powered hydraulic winch for the 90 series?

    Wading depth.

    Don't just put new breathers on - buy standard air line fittings and run 4mm tube from all the breathing points up to the air box and screw them in to the air box casing (the right side of the filter still).

    Extended brake hoses

    If you have lifted the vehicle, I would go buy the braded hose kit for the LN107 Hilux (try Roughtrax for a good price) the hose ends clips etc are identical, but the length is approx 1" longer on each, means no stretching when you jack the truck up etc....!

    Improving brakes in general and braided hoses

    Roughtrax do a braided hose kit for the LC.... I bought the Hilux LN107 kit to use on mine as I have raised the suspension by a couple inches, and it gave me slightly longer brake hoses for the rear axle - perfect for the lift. Dave

    Drawer under passenger seat in Colorado

    my lc seat had this draw... its still in the seat in the shed, I could probably be persuaded to part with it if someone wants it... it was damn handy! the impreza seats I fitted dont have space underneath. Dave

    exhaust silencer box - genuine or aftermarket?

    Bret - I'm guessing you mean what I know as the tail pipe (which has a small rear silencer) Mine only has two silencers the Large middle silencer in the center section and the small rear silencer in the tail pipe.... I checked again with Toyota today - center section way way way more than £120...

    exhaust silencer box - genuine or aftermarket?

    Back to the first question, I would say possibly the genuine one fails over a longer period so 'could' be less likely to fail suddenly somewhere, i did have a cheap silencer seem to suddenly break right off at the pip on my hilux once, and fall around under the vehicle... (will admit, prob a...

    exhaust silencer box - genuine or aftermarket?

    I got a price for the main silencer from Toyota about a year ago.... I nearly fell off my seat, I can't remmember what it was (think I blanked it from my memory) but it was daylight robbery.... Was the £120 for the very tail end part (with a small silencer near the end) not the big middle section?

    Head Swap Pics

    Ah... will learn to read when not half asleep one day! A head 'should' last a lot longer than one year, but if you just fix a head gasket/cracked head and dont have a good look through the cooling system I guess it may go again relatively quickly, remember the cracked head/head gasket failure...

    Head Swap Pics

    When doing mine - I did have half a thought about buying a replacement head for the D4D instead of the correct one for mine, then reality hit, and I realised there was no way I had time to make it work.... But would be an interesting upgrade, I guess the fueling/injectors are too different...

    Head Swap Pics

    I can't fault the AMC head at all - looks fantastic - the casting is very well made and machines - looks nicer casting than my orrigional Toyota item really. For the price difference I would say the AMC is going to be fine! Also get the mechanic to check the viscous fan coupling - in my...
