    I have a 96 FZJ80 and probably looking at a new motor. Looking for someone who can work on landcruisers. I went to Dans Toy Shop and he wanted nothing to do with landcruisers. So I was wondering if anyone could help! I am not sure if replacing the motor is worth the cost or if it will be cheaper to buy another cruiser.
    Any suggestions?

    Get ahold of Eric Murphy at Camelback Toytoa up here. His shop has been going great work on the 80 series. You can call him at work or PM him here on MUD. He is "murf".

    I have been sending my fleet vehicle to him for years...great guys with fair pricing. I always see Cruisers at his shop....but its not like a 80 is a high tech vehicle;)
