      You should be fine. The parts we're talking about are OEM parts. As long as Land Cruisers maintain a strong following, it'll still have aftermarket support. I'm not sure that's the case with Datsun.

      Got out on Sunday to Swanston Track for a day wheel.. Had the dog and 2 kids with me and went with one other car (dual cab hilux)... I tried the go pro again but only turned it on at the start of the track - forgot to press record! Stopped...

      That’s a lot of damage. I wouldn’t put it in my truck

      Looks like the '75 master cylinder (BMT-060) is also on the way out. It wouldn't be difficult if a few Cruiser vendors get together and commit to 1000 units of BMT-230. If you organize something I'll surely sign up for it.

      They also have the lenses for the lights in the '69 grille. https://www.koromoheritage.com/search/front-parker-lamp-lenses-clear-suitable-for-toyota-land-cruiser-fj55-1967-to-1969 They say they have an amber version, but I did not see it, no link.

      I definitely understand the supply and demand idea, it’s the nature of the beast, but it doesn’t help those of us trying to keep the old ones on the road. Keep fighting for us. 👍🏻

      Sometimes I wonder if it’s a loosing battle. Maybe all we’re doing is extending the inevitable. I hope not…. Thanks Kurt for all you do keeping these old Cruisers on the road.

      Try classic cruisers they had both sides for aftermarket lenses and I recently purchased both sides.

      I’ve been wanting to try that as well, it just looks overly complicated for this day and age. Maybe this is how it’s still done, but not sure. Both my lenses are good so I could get a good mold.

      Thanks for the thought. Congratulations on the ‘72.

      I don’t see the lenses for the later models, just the bulbs.

      I’ll have to do that, but still wondering if anyone knows a way to have these reproduced?

      I actually thought about integrating 60 series lights, but I like the idea of staying stock since that is what makes them so unique.

      Yeah, I was looking but haven't been able to find anyone. If anyone has a lead please let me know, I'll continue to look for options.

      Your absolutely correct, I've got two. I do my best to keep my Cruisers on the road and daily driving so when costs become exorbitant It pushes them to become garage queens which is not why I own them. So if I can find someway to help keep...

      Not yet, but it was an aftermarket lens and the color wasn't correct so I'd like to find one that matches the original.
