    How to value it to sell it?

    $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 into it, you'll never get back. I know for a fact...

    Purchase Advice

    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 for sale used, Canada being Canada where used cars...

    Purchase Advice

    :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 tacky chrome 20s. Yeah I can tell exactly which LX it...

    Maint/PM before year-long trip?

    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 well developed and parts/breakdown shouldn't be a...

    LC200 + Blizzak DM-V2 + Blizzard = :)

    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 much fast than you".

    Building from the Base...what would you do with 6K budget?

    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 RT. I've run Toyo MTs before, about 10 years ago...

    Building from the Base...what would you do with 6K budget?

    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 all over motorsport.

    Building from the Base...what would you do with 6K budget?

    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 2002 that had 170k miles at the time. Well, get...

    Buying my first 100 series, how many miles is too many to start?

    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 I'd buy over a 120k mile one. There are really...

    Riddle me this: Who puts a 17 year old vehicle in the shop for $3500 "worth" of repairs?

    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.

    Nokian Hakkapeliitta LT3

    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 much anymore like the KO2s but the Hakka is the...

    Toyota Land Cruiser 100 series , Lexus LX470, Toyota Sequoia First Gen

    Right off the bat when you buy it, your car will need anywhere from $2k to $8k+ to get it into spec and that you can rely on it for a couple years. If you are working with an absolute max, and spending a couple thousand over that will absolutely run you into financial problems and ruins. The LX...

    08 Land Cruiser Rust Treatment

    You call that rot? :rofl: And even on the lower control arms? Also that skid plate is made of paper thin sheet steel. I would call that to be pretty good condition. All I'm seeing here is just the front getting some rock chips that have caused visual rust. Owner probably lived on a gravel road...
