    LJ78 Build Thread

    I spotted this the other day. So I went and bought it for $2500, unregistered with no road worthy certificate, minus the plastic plumbing pipe snorkel and cheap Chinese winch. :dance: As it has the 2lt 2.4 turbo diesel slug of an engine fitted that is prone to cracking...

    Waterless Coolant

    Just seen this on wheeler dealers. Seems like a good product. Wont cause rust inside the engine like normal coolant, and much less likely to blow radiator hoses etc. as the system doesn't get pressurised. They took the rad cap off with the engine running when up to temp and no steam or...
