    Importing Landcruiser

    That's exact what they said or the one about having a Hiab. I was thinking the container is a better idea but maybe roll-on/roll-off is?? Think I'll have to go to a one stop shop to get it done!

    End of diesel overland travelling in Europe.

    Obviously a bit slow on the whole ULEZ expansion and living in Bromley, what a massive PIA, need to seriously think about the LC, it’s a 94 so would need to keep it for another 9 years to get classic car status. Or think about selling it, or just pay the money every time I time it off the drive!!!

    1FZ gasser vs diesel

    With a JDM FZJ80, you should get the fridge in between the front seats and rear air con as well, plus grab handle for passenger. I would go with OBD-II variant so post 94, then you can strap on a turbo (if you can find one) with little modifications but also opens other options, a supercharger...
