    I'd recommend the Falkens, yes they are heavy, but they have a ton of tread depth, which adds weight. They are also true to size, which again adds weight. BFGs run small, and are the worst ice and rain performing AT I have ever owned. The Falken...

    The traction control in Land Rovers early TC system is from Bosch. Bosch is inventor of TC systems..

    Not normal. I think there is more to the story. And your tires are 33's... and so you would even add 6% to your distance. Do you have a speedometer correction box/device?

    $5k-7500. I'd be extremely happy walking away with $7500 if that were me. Expect a ton of people offering you $3-4k. I don't get why you'd put that work into it and then not keep it. You're going to be loosing money because work that you put...

    I'm not interested in going back and forth. Clearly you are. The only value that matters is what a buyer with money in hand is willing to pay. You've got a (1)high mile, (2)early (3) LX. That's the short and short of it. Each one of those three...

    No buyers will care about the sound deadening work. And whatever else doesn't directly contribute to this being a turn key rig. As it sits, it has some needs. And high miles. If you don't like the answers, don't ask the question. It's not a...

    I would not touch that thing at any price point.

    The thing with Canada and 100 series is that nobody bought these new in Canada. They sold about 100 of them per year from 1998 to 2007, and they were $100k Canadian back then due to an extremely weak Canadian peso. Of course when they went up...

    Well...I see a 100 series on the other side so I’d be suspicious. Why he keeping that one but selling this one? How long has he owned it? Is he just trying to flip it. Bought it for a song, didn’t like the underbody, selling it a for slight tip...

    :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: You must really be new here and completely new to used vehicles. Yeah that seller isn't taking any less than $12k Canadian, which is about $9k USD for that 2000 LX470. Its also got hideous non-OEM wheels that look to be...

    Not much. Would prepare the same way as a year long trip in the USA. Also #1 thing is that I'd definetly watch out for 100 series theft in Europe. These things are very wanted in Eastern Europe, Africa, and Russia. Whereever it is in Europe, its...

    Right! Yup, been yelled at before at stop lights or at a parking lot for driving way too fast by drivers in all seasons when its a blizzard out. Well, "sorry that I'm driving at a reasonable and controlled rate of speed in the right tire that is...

    Took off my KO2s and put the DM-V2s on today for the blizzard in the northeast and... WHOA. WOW. HOLY TRACTOR ON STEROIDS. LET IT SNOW!

    I always thought of Nitto to be just a remarketed spin off of Toyo. Most of the truck crowd would think Toyo is Japanese and won't buy import stuff, along with a heavy dose of buy domestic sentiment. The Ridge Grappler is just a rebranded Toyo...

    2nd'ed that KO2s suck ass. Can't recommend them for west coast desert stuff. They are too soft, and they chunk off considerably. Also they cost a ton too. All you're paying for extra is that BFG BAJA CHAMPION logo to be plastered everywhere and...

    With $6k, I'd spend that all on a refresh and baseline on the rig. Just to make sure it drives close to new and it's as dependable as I can get it. That emptied about $6k for me. I was once exactly in your shoes thinking I had $ for mods with my...

    How many miles is too much? The one that you see has a bunch of repair items needed and is leaking. It could be one with 120k miles, it could be one with 250k miles. Honestly, I've seen some 250k mile ones that are in better condition and that...
  • hickuptruck
    Dude ...if that was $3500 for that work. Then by the same token, I put $25,000 of work into a $5000 LX with all the work and hours I've put into mine. Damn that's a lot of money. I wouldn't put that much $ into my LX to be honest.

    You basically have the best winter tires on the market. And you went from Ridge Grapplers to Hakkas? You basically went from like a Nissan Versa to a Porsche 911 Turbo in terms of winter performance on a tire. The snowflake ratings don't mean...
