      Option 5 or 6 or whatever one we are on - convince the wife to sell the 4-runner and get an 80 series. She is familiar with the 80, it's automatic and still solid front axle with a 1fz engine. If your wife needs convincing with that, I might be...

      Yeah, I'm not sure I want to take on the scale of an engine swap project. But the thought had crossed my mind. And yeah, a 1FZ with a Sniper seems to be a pretty killer setup. A the end of the day what got me to jump on this was proving a...

      Somehow I don't think I'm going to get to hold a poll on Option 3. Ha! Yeah. Once it's here we'll see if the 1FZ is everything I dream it is... or better. That's AN option... but it also depletes my spending money on other projects. Better to...

      Great news Honger, fingers crossed! PS. Served in the Middle East too and been in Oman, I think I can feel your sentiments...

      The one you show in the bag is the latest OEM that was available... and it is galvanized near as I can tell. They are different than what you have currently installed, they are cast more hollow, with ribs, than the original. I've got a set here...

      Hi all. The fleet is on its way to Durango. I am also on my way; at Denver airport right now waiting for my flight to Durango. The fleet is supposed to arrive tomorrow, so that's groovy. I have found a temporary 15x50 storage unit...

      That wasn't how it went for me in mid-2019. I tested my Troopy twice... failed both times though it was better the second time... and I just went to classic insurance. Registered as a classic no issue. I do wish I could have have gotten it to...

      I had a little time to kill before heading out on Monday. I treated the transmission shift tower and coated it with two good coats of black. Test fit everything sans gasket. Everything checks out. I’m sort of piddling along but, it is the...

      Nothing funny at all about that. I wasn't convinced I was going to get the pickup out of Saudi until I received the notification that it shipped.

      Not sure how tall you are, but I'm 6'5" so extending the seat made a huge difference in comfort. Spares, things that can ruin your trip/engine like belts/heater hose and repair kits, tire plugs, extra oil and water cooling, tool kit. Things...

      So I bought it in February... and it was scheduled to ship in March and that vessel canceled it's port call to Oman. So I've been waiting and we finally got another vessel lined up. Export work has been done and the truck will be loaded up on...

      The biggest concern I have with Troopy's out of Oman... the rear floor. They often get Swiss-cheesed with rivets and screws from putting in diamond plate material... or they get pruned by repeated loading/unloading of personnel and equipment over...

      I asked for his price, he asked something way too high, I let it drop. Fast forward to February and he still has it. I ask him to go deeper on the photos. Several back-and-forth photo sessions of him sending a photo... me marking it up and asking...

      It presented as a typical sample of an Omani truck. It's been repainted. It's been kept running. It's a former school bus. The government has recently put a maximum age on vehicles used as school buses as well as some safety requirements... so a...

      "So I tripped and fell and bought another Land Cruiser..." It sounded like a good story, but my wife didn't fall for it. Nevertheless, I married well, so this wasn't really a necessary tale. Back in December 2021 I got pinged about a Troopy...

      Just checking in... no progress on URJ45 as of lately. I have been busy with some other projects and haven't tackled the bodywork yet. I'm still itching to finish it though, and it makes me sad every time I walk past it in the shop. We have...

      Looks pretty good with the safari top. Here's some size comparison. The fronts are at 29psi from the tire shop, I usually run higher so I need to check that. The ground isn't level at all, different wear points and only one is weight...

      I was really torn with the Gray or your color, and black, but it seemed like I should at least try the black first and decide from there until I can afford some fancy cool Braid wheels or the like.

      Congrats on getting them home. Funny to say perhaps, but I didn't really feel completely settled until the Land Cruisers had been delivered.

      Made a day trip to Jacksonville yesterday with one of my sons to pick up the Troopy and the "Beast". I towed the Troopy and he drove the pickup. Made it there and back in 12 hours. Thankfully traffic was light. So glad to have these here!

      The black wheels are spot on.
