As per the title, I tried the search with no luck, this is for the UK and not Spain where I live.

All-up as in trailer plus vehicle? They can tow up to 3500kg on a braked trailer but not sure how much that allows the vehicle to weigh. 6.5t total springs to mind, which would give you 3000kgs on the vehicle, so std 80 plus maybe 400kg?
Not 100% sure on the 6.5t, so the maths depends on that :twisted:

Cheers,

GTW for my 80 (97 HDJ80) is 6560kg, that's 3500kg trailer and 3060kg truck.

Holy Moses :o Does an '80' really weigh 3,500 Kilos :?: :?: :?: (or is that with six adults plus a full load of safari gear ?).

My KZJ95 is 2,000 Kilos and I thought that was heavy.

My tractor weighs 3,500Ks :lol:

I've got a spec sheet which says kerb weight for a 5 door 4.2 TD Auto is 2510kg min and 2660kg max, gross vehicle weight 3260kg. I'm not sure what they mean by min & max though

Chas what does it say on your VIN plate near the wiper motor under the bonnet? The first 2 number will do. 3260 GVW seems quite high.

I think it has something to do with dry and wet weights. i.e. full or empty of fuel, water, oil etc. May be wrong but seem to remember hearing this years ago, to do with LRs, I think it was.

I can't look at my VIN plate a the moment as the Cruiser is still with Julian V, but I found a file saved on my computer, I don't know where it came from originally, I don't think I can put it on here as an attachment so I've printed and scanned it as a picture;

I hope that helps, maybe someone may recognise it?

Interersting . . But does the 3.0L D-4D motor really have a double overhead camshaft (DOHC) ???

I suspect its actually a single OHC, like the 1KZ-TE.

(Now to be proved wrong :) ).

Sounds like the first of the 100 series with independant front and 201 bhp 4.2 TD.

Very similar to the 80 but the electronic fuel injection gave them about 15 bhp more.

You know Bob, I had to look at that twice. I will have to delve a bit deeper into Tommo's motor to find out.

Thanks for all the information guys, the min and max figure were IIRC to allow for shipping cost/weight to be calculated for a dry/wet vehicle, i.e. no oils/water/fuel ect.
