    Got a 120 itch.

    I went through superior engineering, not sure the chap still works there but was easy to order and they marked the packages lower price for the import tax reasons :)

    Adventure Overland Show 27th 28th April

    ok, this may go against general feeling but if compare this april to last april id say it was an improvement, generally due to the big trucks being there, the bikes, more campervans, couple new vendors, yes slightly less vendors overall or more scattered so felt less, more footfall also than...

    Got a 120 itch.

    regarding the air bags on the rear, I brought a pair from airbagman in aus which also gave a 2in lift, so far 30k miles has proven no issues at all. :)

    trailers

    I did look at the sankeys which is a potential base, regarding off road, well nothing drastic however the turtlebacks use a similar rubber style suspension but with shocks added however previous models used just the axle less rubber rated for 2ton so having leaf springs etc isn't a deal breaker...

    trailers

    hey all does anyone know much info on self build trailers in the uk? iv had some quotes for new chassis trailers which wud enable me to just build my frame etc on to it but that's around £1600 1.3ton capacity and 8x4 frame. been looking at the turtleback in America or patriot campers style as my...

    Overland show 2018

    hey guys, nice to see the trucks again and a good turnout. shame about the show itself and the weather but you always look one of the best groups lol. I think was even a bonus being on the way to and from the car park ( strange place they put the visitors this year)

    Head lamp upgrade

    iv ben thinking to upgrade to leds on this or not, are you all running in stock housings? do the led's produce less glare than hid's? and lastly, I have the rubber covers on the rear of my lights, looks likely these will be lost.. any disadvantage with that?

    loss of power

    so it seems the suction control valve is faulty, Toyota wanted £675 for the job. sound reasonable for that? I'm thinking a lot is labour too?

    loss of power

    have changed air filter, unplugged maf sensor and drove, very slight improvement but still super sluggish. can hear turbo spooling. checked hoses, not sure where turbo is to be honest.

    loss of power

    little update... had the fuel filter changed, managed get down to a quarter of tank and thought refill with some ultimate and cleaner, now feels worse, almost like no turbo.. very sluggish/restricted feeling. any other ideas?

    loss of power

    hey all recently my lc5 has started losing power under heavyish acceleration, I dnt get any lights up and seems to regain normal power if I release and go normally. but will happen again if I try any heavy peddle. I had full service last year (approx. 10k miles) so any suggestions easy check...

    DCB conversion

    would I need to declare change of class for the v5 though? will ping west coast as well. karl how did you sort the rear out? custom made or imported a kit?

    DCB conversion

    hey guys does anyone know if or how it is possible to do a double cab conversion in UK and DVLA law on it? iv seen in aus its quite a popular trend to convert 80/100/200 series and patrols to double cab trucks with chassis extensions to the wheel base. I think any "kit" imported from aus would...

    Overland show 2017

    i think there could be if done right. I went to the landrover show last weekend and that was pretty packed as well. hopefully this means overlanding is taking hold and that this can open up the uk slightly easier for certain activities lol

    Overland show 2017

    My 79 series pick up.

    it would make sense as well if from Dubai , I believe the v8 diesel lc79 is aussie market only? wondering if sunny should question the seller if been sold a conversion rather than a genuine 79.
  50. Seagull-russ

    My 79 series pick up.

    is that market specific? all the 79 DC's iv seen on pictures have a longer wheelbase, yours looks almost like a troopy converted to a pick up.
