    1990 Landcruiser Prado 70 series Build

    Mine came with the 2LT but it was on its last breath. Swapped it with a nice 1kz. The 2LT was fine and I would have kept it if it's condition was better as there is nothing quite like a stock vehicle, stock will always be more reliable, better performance under normal conditions unless the...

    Suspension seats: Are they worth it?

    Been reading the comments about the Prado seats I'm about 5'10 and 74kg and have had no problems with the seats knock on wood for 8 years driving my LJ78 off-road some times 7 hours straight. It's never longer than that though as we camp over night. I'm in Pakistan though so my basis of...

    Suspension seats: Are they worth it?

    I drive an LJ78 that came stock with the suspension seats. I have no basis of comparison but I would definitely miss them. You can feel them absorbing shocks all the time as you go up and down on bumps. My friend and expert 70 series mechanic tried to install them on his 3 door kzj to no avail...

    Thanks for saying. It took a long while to get it to where I love it, knock on wood.

    1993 LJ70 2LT LHD 5-speed manual Prado looking for a new engine swap, please leave suggestions, thank you :)

    1kz has a lighter gear ration than 2lt but if you have over sized tires it will compensate. I believe 2lt is 4.88 gear ratio if I remember and 1kz was near a 4.2. I've got the same lj78 with 1kz swap, manual transmission with the original gearing. Got 1kz differentials which made it slightly...

    1993 LJ70 2LT LHD 5-speed manual Prado looking for a new engine swap, please leave suggestions, thank you :)

    In Pakistan the most preferred engine for this vehicle is the one it came supplied with, the 1kzte. The LJ78s have all mostly been swapped with 1kz here. Don't know if they are readily available in your part of the world. These models were either called LJ or KZJ denoting the two diesel engines...

    LJ78 Prado Transmission ID

    Right, read about the engine firewall plate, I got an rf150f which is thankfully included in the kzj manual. This forum is amazing, thanks again.

    LJ78 Prado Transmission ID

    Thanks this was incredibly helpful, I've got an LJ78 manual with a 1kz swap and am trying to find my transmission number as I notice as well the kzj repair manual jumps a bunch of pages (skipping G model transmission and another straight to R Model)

    1990 Landcruiser Prado 70 series Build

    She broke a rear axle seal so just replaced that. Gear oil is low so gonna go with 90w but not sure if I should replace or top up. Heard you shouldn't change the diff oil much.
