Hello their Rick and welcomes to the list. Well you did ask this:
Well you know the 80 can comes with lockers and 33's all ready from
the original. The bull bars are not longer allowed in Europe. The
winch must be added except on you have the VX modele hdj80.

Rick,
Go for an 80 - it has coli springs all round, factory lockers and an
excellent turbocharged diesel engine.

I'd like to endorse Roman's comments and simply add that 60s are getting a
little long in the tooth now. Good ones are hard to find.

Hi Rick,
Welcome to the list.
As others have said you are probably better off with an 80 - there are more around and better kitted from the outset.
What sort of budget do you have in mind for a base vehicle before mods? With a bit more info we can point you towards the relevant year/spec.

i can remember when the first of the 60 series into papua new guinea got to
about 7 years old, around 1988, 1989, quite a few were already dead from
rot.
the 70 series followed the 40 series as the preferred heavy duty choice -
the 60 series was mechanically good but couldn=92t seem to take the abuse from
the roads.
interestingly the toyota dealer for se asia still lists the full range of 70
series for papua new guinea.

hi guys
what exactly is clasified as the life span of a cruiser.
is it when it is falling apart and just wont be right again like a rotten
chassis or is it when the owner deems it too costly to keep going with all
the repair bills and the constant replacing of parts.
its interesting from the point of view that the 80 is now 16 years old in
design so how far more will it take us.
when di the 60s start their life.

But I wonder if you asked an experienced bush driver down in the back
of the african beyonds - what would he go for? A 60 or an 80 and why.
It would be interesting to see what qualities he'd be after....
SNIP
Niall I bet the answer would be a 70series troopie on 7.50 X 16's. with a 1HZ.
This is not just an opinion from my recent African adventure but also
my other work in tough places. They are so good there is no need to
question why Toy still make them.

most of the hard core aid agencies working in n. kenya, somalia, ethiopia
etc. all use 70 series cruisers on 750/16 split rims (although later models
such as the 79 have gone from 6 stud to 5 stud hubs).
