    A 1992 75 Series Troopy build: Advice and help will be needed

    Recently purchased an old beat up 75 series troopy. For the most part, it seems decent just well used. I don't have much background with working on trucks so I assumed the pretty basic build of these trucks will allow me to learn and actually accomplish something. So we will see. I attached...

    Should I panic buy this FJ45?

    So I have never owned a Land Cruiser before, driven a few in the distant past and I now have the time and space to own one. I've been looking around for a while at various 70s but have always deep down wanted to own a 40 series (or a 70 too). Now is my chance! This rather Aussie looking beast...

    Where Were 45 and 47 Troopies Manufactured and Sold?

    As the title says, I'm trying to nail down what countries around the world these Troopies were originally manufactured and originally sold. Anyone know of lists and sites identifying this? Also interested in the same info for 75 and 78 Troopies. Thanks.

    Troopy build : Webasto / Eberspacher, looking for install tips

    We're starting the Troopy build and one of the must-haves is a Webasto/Eberspacher heater in the back of the truck. I found a good spot to mount it (near the left hand rear door) so we can get good air supply (the stock rear air vent). However, I'm struggling to find a good way to deal with the...

    Hi All! I'm looking for a Troopy 45 or 78 or Dbl. Cab 79

    My 2015 Tacoma recently burned up, so I've decided to use the insurance money to buy and build out (camperize) a manual trans, diesel 78 series Troopy or Dbl. Cab 79 series. I'm on the left coast of Canada, but will look at a truck from any location. Would prefer something in the 2002 to 2004...

    OBD in 2003 Troopy

    Hi all, first post - be kind. Trying to find out if the 2003 troopcarrier with 1HZ has a OBD port (or similar). Done a fair bit of searching around unable to find the answer. From what i can tell it doesnt have one, but thought i better ask just in case. There's nothing wrong with the the...

    VDJ78R Flip Top camper conversion

    G'Day. I can see that there are a few threads about Troopy conversions, and I thought people might be interested in the one I recently had done. We had operated for a while with a roof top tent and a basic fit out in the back, with a dual battery system, 180w solar panel and regulator, an 80lt...

    78 Series - How many rubbers for horizontal windows?

    Hi guys, Continuing on with the restore of my 78 after the hail damage. I've been looking on some online websites selling apparently genuine parts much cheaper than what I can get thru a Toyota dealer. However, when I've disassembled my horizontal sliding windows in the Troopy and laid all the...

    Hi guys, I am new to the forum. Unfortunately my 78 Series Troopy got caught in the large hail storm in Brisbane last November. As part of the repair they are going to fix the rest of it up if I pull it apart. While it's mostly apart, I was looking today at how to remove the glass (Sliding...

    Land Cruiser 70 Troopy

    A lot of you might recognize this truck from when Jonnie posted photos of it a few months ago. He mentioned that he might not keep it, so I jumped at the opportunity when he messaged me and asked if I was interested. My wife and I have had an overlander 80 series for a while now, but I've had my...
