    About to buy first 200 series - advice request!

    I'd avoid the later one.....if the driver didn't care about it then who knows what else has been done with it.... many 200's coming on the market have been company cars for blokes that run tipper and plant hire businesses.... serviced because they were lease cars but unloved in every other way .

    Rear air bags.

    Anyone got any pics....? I think I've made my OME springs sag after I towed 4 tons of Halftrack that was very nose heavy on the trailer.....it nearly put her on the bump stops.... now sits level when parked and not tail high like they normally do .

    Rear air bags.

    "I sell a good few sets a year. Great ad on to the trucks" Got any pictures Karl ... I now run air bags on both my Ducato work van and on our Ducato camper ....simple to fit as you just remove the bump stop and they transform the ride . Do the LC air bags restrict flex ?

    Rust

    "Grimbo, It was on private plate, I think its A1WBD." Not the one I knew.... this one belonged to the owner of a skip and haulage company and spent lot's of time in mud which would have explained your muddy bottom so to speak ;-)

    Where's Tony from Cyprus?

    I'll stick my head over the parapet and say ..... This is a site about Landcruiser's with many knowledgeable people on it that contribute .... the PC crazy world is one that I hoped was left behind when talking to a bunch of fellow Cruiser owners.... we all have different views and surely we are...

    Trying to convince Cybox to do a 3 inch 80 series system ....he is aware that the system they list for the 80 is restrictive ....then the dreaded China flu got in the way

    Any people made 100 into pickups on here?

    Coolest chopped pick up Cruiser around still has to be Adams 6x4 80 series with a tipping bed .....and that was done years ago

    Wanted upgraded intercooler and 3 inch 100 series exhaust

    Cybox do a 3 inch 100 series system for about £600 ..... that's about the right price and compares well to Aussie made exhausts before you pay to have it shipped half way round the world.. I want a 3 inch system for the 80 and Trev's are a work of art and will last a lifetime.... but twice as...

    All New 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser (300 Series) Off road Legend | V6 twin-turbo engine Review

    Don't think Toyota are silly enough to do away with a chassis ....what would all the Aussie guy's do if they can't chop a cruiser and extend it with a canopy ?

    All New 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser (300 Series) Off road Legend | V6 twin-turbo engine Review

    Hopefully my grandchildren will never live to see the day that the last Spitfire fly's because the loony agenda led nutters ban all ICE engines from running ... These are the same misguided individuals that tell you to eat less meat grown on the fields around my house and that we should eat...

    All New 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser (300 Series) Off road Legend | V6 twin-turbo engine Review

    "We all realize that the 400 series, launched after 2030, will have no 1) gearbox 2) low range 3) driveshaft 4) differentials 5) lockers 6) stuff hanging under the chassis like exhaust, pipes, catalyst etc. It will be all-electric like Tesla's Cybertruck. That means more range, more power, more...

    Hailstones!!!

    A mate who lives in Austria sent me a picture the other day of one of his vehicles with a new car cover on.... it was like a mattress on the top.... specifically for protecting from hail stones.... They had some storms that produced golf ball size hailstones and carnage or a work opportunity...

    Recommend somewhere to camp in Cheshire

    We're doing the NC500 in Willys Jeeps late September.....unsure what kind of welcome we'll get after they've had a summer of crowded roads and tourists.... As others have said...not enough space in this country and what little is left they seem determined to build on..... Supplementary...

    Recommend somewhere to camp in Cheshire

    Don't think that law is aimed at overnight campers though..... The hippies and drug dealers that invaded the ancient monument couple of years ago on a friends estate would hopefully fall under this law though ..... seemingly harmless but a nasty under current of drug dealing and selling...
