    1991 Toyota Landcruiser HDJ81 for sale (deposit now taken)

    Note: I've now taken a deposit for this. Thanks for all the interest. Off to a good home shortly! Bit of a reluctant one, but needs must. Thought I'd put it on here before it goes on the usual sites. Note that whilst it does start and drive, this for sale spares or repairs as it will...

    wanted landcruiser 80 (import) load blind

    perhaps a bit of a long shot, but i have seen them on ebay before. Looking for a retractable load blind for an 80 in grey. I think they were only import, but may have also been sold with the 5 seat gx models. I have all the brackets etc, just i am missing the actual retractable blind. they...

    pre 08/91 suspension differences

    afternoon all, on a quest to sort my saggy suspension and seem to have com across a peculiarity. Ironman (and others) state that their lifts are 20mm less for vehicles built before 08/91. This is potentially pretty good from my perspective as i don't want to lift the car and have to deal with...

    more storage space

    having filled up the tailgate, i still needed a bit more space to store my crap out of the main boot are and out of sight. So, a while ago i started making a storage box to set into the floor of the boot. An icelandic chap had done so on ih8mud, so i decided to make one as well. my spare lives...

    how many boxes do you have?

    ...exhaust boxes that is? Particularly if you have a diesel 80 and a custom exhaust. about time for me to get a new exhaust and wondering what i need in the way of silencers. Have had a look through various exhaust posts on various forums but thought i'd ask for some opinions. I'm looking for...

    pre '92 pads

    anyone have a reference for pads from pre '92, e.g ferodo or ebc. seems my wear indicator has fallen off and i'm down to about 1mm so need some new pads pretty quick. I have found 2 types of pad, one 67mm high and one 72mm and both seem to apply to pre 92's. I've no idea where the pad...

    mar-tacking shafts

    going to do this at the weekend whilst i have the front hub apart as those snap rings are a pain in the backside. anyone done this and got any tips, measurements etc? mine doesn't have a locker at the front so i think the splines are much shorter (long shaft). have gone through write ups on the...

    how to make an 80 tailgate really heavy

    this was mostly finished a few weeks ago, but i never got round to uploading it. step 1 involves removing the carpet and then staring at the tailgate scratching one's head. step 2 involves cutting a big hole in the tailgate (no pic i'm afraid) and the tailgate starts shedding some weight...

    2" receiver attachments

    anyone know a good source of these in the uk? i'm looking for a shackle bracket for recovery in the first instance. i see devon 4x4 have some, but they're quite expensive. i'd also like to get hold of one of the swan neck towing attachments so i don't have to keep the big adjustable drop plate...

    tailgate struts

    mine are getting pretty saggy and they really didn't like the very cold weather, so i think i should maybe think about changing them. usual ih8mud solution seems to be aussie ebay for replacement struts, in which case i'll probably get bonnet ones at the same time. the other option there seems...

    slee off road and international postage

    thankfully its not a bumper i'm after, just a speedo correction gear for an 80 following a change of tyre size. anyone had anything wee posted by them? as i understand from reading, they are a bit shit at posting internationally, but i presume something that would fit in a jiffy bag shouldn't...

    receiver hitch

    a query came up a while back and i had meant to post images of my receiver hitch setup. i had intended to take some shots before assembly, but needless to say, i forgot. hopefully these might help someone else thinking about making it. essentially i combined a land rover receiver hitch with a...

    Chris Knott Insurance

    Sorry, wasn't sure of the appropriate forum to post this one is, so apologies if its not where it should be. Have just renewed with the above and quoted a reference i got from 'the other site'. i thought this might get me a bit of discount or something, but it seems it gives the club some sort...

    what have you got for floor mats?

    i currently have the deep pile carpet sort that is often seen in JDM 80's, however a day out in the hills with bikes drew my attention to the fact that winter and muddy feet will soon be upon us so i think some rubber ones might be wise now. i've had a pretty extensive look and i can't find...

    electric aerial repair

    don't suppose anyone has removed the electric aerial unit before? mine is missing the aerial, but the motor still works, so i'd like to get it operational again. i've looked at removal guides on ih8mud, but it seems it is different for lhd models as there is air-con piping in the way of the...

    crossmember bolts

    i'm trying to bolt up my receiver hitch and by an expensive process of deduction, i've found that the top threaded holes are neither m12 x 1.25 nor m10 x 1.25. i've now managed to spend about £20 on 12.9 bolts that don't fit. in hindsight i would have been cheaper just buying the bolts directly...

    old air con and r12

    just taken the trip to toyota to take advantage of their air con service offer. they never batted an eyelid when i told them the age of the vehicle, so i assumed all was ok. alas i got a call later in the afternoon to say 'er, we've never had this before, but the connections are not the same...

    mysterious water loss

    Hi, first post here, have posted over on the other forum, but the restrictions on posting were a bit annoying, so hopefully here will be a bit easier. Vehicle is a 1991 hdj81. Anyway, i'm suffering a bit of coolant loss, about 500ml every 150 miles or so. Its not causing any problems, temp is...
