    Reviving the old girl

    This is the first Land Cruiser I owned, bought her in 1988 and have held onto her ever since. She made a few trips through Rubicon in her day, then along came marriage, then kids. Wagons then ruled the back country for me, and I still have a couple of wagons around. But can't wait to start...

    Pretty much done with the white stuff

    It's been a relentless winter, one snow storm after another. I must have at least 50-60 cm's on the ground, and that's after the melt we had last week. My neighbour with the Bobcat is making good money this year. The back of Ducky, the flat deck, is over 16" off the ground, you can't even see...

I'm putting the 80 on my tandem axle but I'm looking for a place to store it for a few days whilst in White Rock. So anybody got room in the Cloverdale, South Langley, South Surrey, White Rock area? I'm sure I...

    Vibration?

    Took Red for a spin, had a very nasty vibration I thought maybe the transmission was packing it in. I never serviced the u-joints since buying this truck, though we've only had her a couple of years and summer only driving.

    Tool Identification

    We finally found a truck to replace our high mileage, gas guzzling Dodge Ram. We scored a 2004 Chevy Silverado ¾ ton with a Duramax diesel. This is in addition to Norm's old car, a 1994 Volkswagen Jetta TDI. Hopefully fuel bills will start to be reduced, of course, our FJ62 and FZJ80 will...

    Vibration at low speed

    I've been hunting down a low speed vibration, unlike some, I use search and pretty much came up with the solution. A little history, this is a new to me 80 series that I picked up in Fernie, BC. Quite a rarity for Canada, we never got 80 series (per se) only LX450's. This truck was originally a...

    New Addition To The Family

    Couldn't find a decent 60 series, so I had to settle for this: A 1996 FZJ80 Land Cruiser, US spec, 148,000 miles and yes, she has lockers Never thought I'd stray to the dark side, thankfully we still have our 62 series for everyday wheeling' :)

    Death of another Cruiser

    Not having a lot of luck with Land Cruisers in the last couple of years, Tracy had an accident with Iris, my replacement truck for Lily. She walked away after hitting an icy patch on Hwy 6, now we are down to one running cruiser "Red", though she is off the road for winter.

    FourRunner for sale

    Not mine, but a colleague I work with: I am getting rid of my 1997 Toyota 4 Runner. This is the standard transmission, 4 cylinder version. The truck is old, rusty and needs brakes. But it runs fine, passes air care, the 4x4 works etc. This would be a good truck for the right person who wants to...
