    I’ll post up before the WKEND, maybe more campers will get it?

    REALLY I am just looking to take a peek inside (images) the rear cabs of 80’s premised on extended traveling with more than one person. Read at your peril otherwise. I just want to assure any who might read this; I have spent hundreds of hours in the threads: reading: scanning images: and...

    As a few of you know already... what about AUTO INSURANCE

    Somewhat concerning as Catherine and I drill down on the budget; Insurance for the rig. A couple of you know that we are gradually downsizing and will probably wind-up pouring some $30K into the 80 for a slow roll across the United States in 2020. No joke, we have never done anything like this...

    Are there similar rear hatch inserts available in the United States?

    Solid rear hatch glass insert? See image below; (Not my image but out of auction house in N. Europe). And those load bars and drip moulding mounts are massive btw.

    1971 FJ55 Color Code help from the purist-type. Pics provided.

    I do not own the image attached. I found the images by way of an auction house in Canada or somewhere in the North East portion of the United State, sorry I cannot give proper credit. I do not usually make a habit of stealing others’ media content. Anyway. Cool Cruiser's website has the PPG...

    I was read the FACT page on OEM (Au) sub tanks...

    A number of years back Romer mentioned on the fact page that (at that time 2007) dual OEM filler necks were available via Australia Toyota dealers/vendors. OEM Sub Tank or Aux Fuel Tank setups - For FAQ I do not have the Australian connections that George obviously had but post 9/11 the tanks...

    Which box to check; LIFE-FLIGHT or SAT PHONE?

    We’re getting some back issues of Overland Journal but I want to talk to some old-timers who are taking a break from the trail. Maybe one day I will steal a line from Foucault or Deleuze and submit an essay to the editors at OJ. First off, because of skill set and experience, the wife and I...

    Lighting Solutions? sPOD?

    NOTE: I do NOT own the image--pulled from Northridge 4x4 website. Effectively I am reaching the end of parts list for the build. Front-to-back of the rig parts are roughly $20K. Which is about what I suspected before I started. I have 18-24mo.s to find a fabricator, powder coat shop, a CNC shop...

    For Sale  1996 Non-Locked just might be replaced...

    What will the market bare? 1996 Non Anniversary, Non Locked, Moonglow, 160K miles. I have been fiddling with the numbers and am now thinking about alternative ways to get what I want... so the unlocked 80 might be headed to a new home? I just cannot justify what I want to do with the money...

    I have looked but can no longer find a link to Service Manual(s)--any help?

    ...yeah, anyway, I know that the shop/service manual for 1996 are posted somewhere in the threads in multiple posts. I have already downloaded one in pdf format but can no longer locate it because I cannot remember what drive I stored it on. After 3o+ minutes of frustration I am reduced to...

    REAL TIME: Check this out--the vehicle will not shut-off.

    Went-out to pick-up the kid and start the cruiser. Starter contacts stuck/worn: Click, no start. Try again. Click, no start. Third time vehicle fires up roughly: Warning Lights at cluster LIGHT UP and stay lit. Attempt to shut it down. Engine quits but starter (?) sequence still continues even...

    Hold fast... even if dreams changed they come true.

    I worked with Toyota when the 80 series was still being sold on the lot new and I fell in love with them then. From that moment to this life moved forward in so many different and often unexpected ways but my love for Land Cruisers never waned. As fortune would have it I very nearly purchased...
