    Is Land Cruiser 200 still worth keeping and repairing

    Glad I could help Raj. The state of those rear ram shrouds, the blown AHC pipe, and the few rusty bits of brake pipe are imo signs of Toyota bean counters cutting back on rust prevention coatings on newer trucks. Probably because they were lasting too long. Good luck with the repairs and...

    Is Land Cruiser 200 still worth keeping and repairing

    I'm a bit late to the party on this Raj but if you're in Reading, you're probably not far from me in Hartley Wintney. Let me know if you'd like me to take a look and give an opinion how bad it is.

    LC200 First Impressions

    I'm not familiar with 200's Raj, but I've worked on the AHC on 100's and that AHC problem looks the same as we get on the 100's, just a bit sooner than you'd expect. You should only need to change the pipe the guy showed you going from the valve block to the top of the ram. On the 100 access is...

    Diffs and lockers... just checking

    Your plan looks good to me. You shouldn't have any problems, just make sure the dash switch is in the same position as the actuator when you connect it (off).

    100 series tilt and telescope steering column motors.

    I think the dealer is telling lies. Where about in the country are you? Maybe you're near another member with Techstream, or a garage forum members would recommend taking it to, if you don't want to buy an interface and install Techstream yourself. The menu options for a non Techstream...

    Spare Wheel

    I guess I could spare a standard 16" alloy, I am a bit of a wheel hoarder it seems. Where about in the country are you? I'm mostly near Basingstoke.

    Foxwing for sale

    They do. I've done that on my other Foxwing and you can keep the poles in it, which is a handy upgrade. Only selling because I have too many awnings really.

    80 rear winch bumper build

    A bit of heat and prying would probably shift that, and / or cut most of the way through it with an angle grinder. The oil seal would be in the very bottom of the hub, the bit you've took off that's part of the wheel carrier. Normally it would trap that bottom bearing in place in the hub...
