Hi Dyfed,
That is a typical jap attempt at turning an LC into a monster truck - if you
look through the jap auction sites you will see a lot of these.
Personally I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole - there must be around a 4-6"
body lift there on top of a suspension lift - bet it would be fun around
corners especially if you put some weight up on that roof rack ;-)

I asked the guy who was selling it about the spec of the car
It was imported last year and was lifted over in japan
87 inches to roof, and 95 inches to the top of the roof rack
6" body lift and 6" suspension lift
Said that only mods done to drivetrain is extending the gear change rod (his
words)
Has 36" tyres on it and handles great according to him.
IF I bought it, I would drop it down to at least 2" lift!
I couldn't take this anywehre except work and holidays (no car park would
fit!

I realy liked that one: " I think it handles great,...I drive it

I bet he knows very little about 4x4s, bought it for the looks without
realising that it might be a compete dud. If it's true it's a 12"
lift without any drivetrain modifications, then it certainly is a dud.
Than maybe I am wrong.

Does not look so bad- has no diff locks(front/rear) but other valuable/ useful
thingis.
i would offer the chap 5 or 5.5 and take the body lift out. then u have about
a 4 "-6" lift left. if still to high change suspension and sell old one.
