If it makes you feel better Raj....
Another 200 series AHC pipe failure on a friends one careful owner ..never been off road , pampered 200 series... also worryingly large amount of underbody rust due to poor or no anti rust treatment from factory on a UK supplied and spec vehicle....kept in a garage for much of it's life .

Sorry about that 200. I really take it personally n feel bad when a landcruiser fails for such small avoidable things. Ideally this rust treatment should come from Toyota as this is top of the range car in their company and they say itthat it’s made to last for 25 years on toughest terrain. Link to one of the advertisements. I watched every day for 2 years before buying n even now I watch it.

from my experience, now I feel I can repair in a fraction of price Toyota charges n keep it. learning to fix them on my own is another best way to preserve Landcruiser

Hi Raj, how did you get on with Krown? I guess you’ve had the truck done now?

Hi Rich
Got Krown treatment n he gave me a certificate. He told I need to top up in 2 years. Apart from that we really don’t notice anything different. It’s a transparent coat so underneath looks same as before

This one now repaired....as you say Raj ...Toyota prices for simple things like AHC pipes are beyond belief.
You've now got a good one ... have fun and enjoy it

one thing to keep in mind when thinking about prices from Mr. T is that they charge in line with original prices these trucks were sold with, and the supply chain is also setup in the same way
