    Should I change my wheels?

    Hi folks - I have Bridgestone AT tyres on the wheels below of my armoured 105, I had a slow puncture which we have repaired but it made me wonder about whether winter tyres would be necessary. Obviously the vehicle weighs 4.5 ton and we live on top of a hill in the Pennines where it does snow a...

    G'day. Just joined. I have a 105 series 1hz with turbo and a 105 petrol. Both gxl wagons so I can get the family around. The petrol one is pretty stock for day to day use. The turbo is a beast. Few mods to make it good for 4x4 and getting to those off the main track places. Got a couple of...

    2001 105 GXL Cruise Control

    Hi Everyone, First time poster, long time reader here. I've purchased a 2001 105 GXL Manual recently, and I cant get the cruise control to work. I believe there's no power going to the system as when I turn it turn, no light comes on the dash. I've tried looking for a fuse but no luck, I cant...

    A deranged obsession

    I have always wanted to get out and see the world, but my interest in overlanding using my own vehicle was really sparked by joining my brother for the last leg of his road-trip from Wales to Kyrgyzstan back in summer 2017. Granted I only joined for 2 weeks, I have never felt so free as we...

    Does anyone have the 105 Series (not the 100 Series) Land Cruiser service manuals?

    The 100 Series and 105 Series have different motors (among other things), so surely they have different service manuals. Can anyone help me find the 105 Series manuals? Thanks!

    where to get cruise control for 105 Series Landcruiser?

    I periodically have to make long drives with my 105 Series Landcruiser, and eventually it can wear out my lower back to push the gas pedal hour after hour. And on top of that, I think I just got my picture taken for a speeding ticket the other day. Does anyone know where I can get a good...

    basic info and recommendations for 105 Series Landcruiser tires

    Using the VIN, I've discovered an amazing amount of information about my 105 Series Landcruiser. What I don't yet know is what the original tire size was for the vehicle. It's my understanding that the rims/wheels are *not* the same as the 100 Series. Does anyone know the original size? And...

    I've searched and searched online, and don't seem to find any seat covers for the 105 Series Landcruisers (which seem to be different the 100 Series seats). Can anyone help me by sharing some options/links?

    Hi guys I am posting an ad on behalf of a friend in SA who is selling a 105 Petrol.

I've shipped 2 vehicles over recently and the cost isn't bad. £2050...
