    Trailer hitch quieter/ anti-rattle .... need help from you fabricators!

    Any decent steel fabrication shop should be able to reproduce this if they have your truck there to guide them. It isn’t rocket science. It doesn’t have to look exactly the same, it just needs to be a stout S shaped hook that can enter the bottom cavity while giving the antirattle u-bolt...

    Spotted FS in Spokane WA - interesting 1995 convertible conversion 139k miles, $27,000

    Sorry, I am not going to go pester the man except for somebody who has a real interest in buying it. All of those questions can easily be answered by directly contacting the seller. The only reason I even offered to go is, he is maybe five minutes away. John Davies Spokane WA

    Spotted FS in Spokane WA - interesting 1995 convertible conversion 139k miles, $27,000

    This just popped up on Craigslist. The seller is just 1 mile from my home, if anybody a potential buyer wants me to go scope it out. The owner may be a member here, I dunno. If so I apologize if this is a repost. I know Series 80s pretty well and currently drive a 200. This is a 1 owner truck...

    Trailer hitch quieter/ anti-rattle .... need help from you fabricators!

    Hazzard Fab Worx Spokane WA i am a little surprised that they are selling these over the counter. I thought mine was a one off. I suggest that you just describe it as a Land Cruiser 200 hitch anti-rattle device, send copies of the pictures I posted here, and a picture of your hitch. Mention my...

    Does anyone know when the 2020 Heritage Edition will actually hit dealers?

    The rear seats and brackets weigh about 75 pounds, their removal will let the butt rise slightly. The running boards are aluminum and less than 20, I believe. I seriously doubt if the rear springs have a different rate. Has anyone verified the new heavier payload? John Davies Spokane WA

    200 series camper suggestions?

    Hmmm, that bigger Bruder is really tempting, if I could get one for the price of my Ollie (hah!) I would be willing, for no other reason than to see all the dropped jaws when I took it to Overland Expo. The organizers will not let my Ollie camp there - too “RV - ish” I guess. I love the...

    200 series camper suggestions?

    That is my thread linked in the first post, I have owned an Oliver Legacy Elite II for three and a half years now. I would not trade it for any other brand, period. If you watch this really long factory tour, you will understand why they are so good. ... . John Davies Spokane WA

    Does anyone know when the 2020 Heritage Edition will actually hit dealers?

    Please post the part number, I am sure I will get screwed by my dealer, if he even has the information at all. I want one for my 2013 with third row removed. This is pretty nice, especially for $62 ;) I also really like the retractable cover, is that new? Could the trim parts and cover be...

    Safari snorkel for 5.7L USDM land cruisers

    Thank you, that was helpful. The videos show a big round hole drilled, then opened up to an oval. John Davies Spokane WA

    The hole size isn’t proprietary information. If you don’t know the answer, don’t waste our time. If you know the answer just please say so. John Davies Spokane WA

    Safari snorkel for 5.7L USDM land cruisers

    I’m going to order a Safari snorkel for my 2013 200, I have been waiting for a direct fit kit for these engines, I was reluctant to have to futz around with reforming the duct.... Can someone tell me the correct fender hole size? I have seen 4” and 4.5” mentioned, I want to order a saw. Thanks...

    Dissent offroad 200 series front/rear steel and aluminum bumper interest.

    I’m not going to be an instant customer but in the future your front and rear alumiunum bumpers are at the very top of my Honey Do list. I have been looking for a long while and I love the light weight and clean modular design. I would love to have the 7 pin connector positioned up high. How...

    Need part number for ignition coil pack WATER SEAL only.

    Well, no responses. I got a new OEM coil from Amazon and stole the seal from it. FYI the little drain/ vent SLOT on the new Toyota part was located at the BOTTOM, 6:00 position. The truck runs great, it is noticeably smoother and hopefully will get a little better mpgs. If you learn one thing...

    Need part number for ignition coil pack WATER SEAL only.

    I am in the middle of changing my plugs and coolant tees, the hard side is done and I thought I was going to coast through the job with no pain. The first pack I removed on the left side .... the seal stuck to the valve cover, and before I could grab it, it slid loose and disappeared. I haven't...

    IMPORTANT: Check your HVAC recirculate door and answer Poll

    I’ve been putting off this repair, hoping that some brave soul would have figured out by now, how to get the blower unit out in a couple of hours. Someone noted a steel dash brace ... could that be cut away for clearance, then riveted back together with a steel reinforcement? I am going to...
