    5 speed into a Troopy questions

    I have been reading up on fitting a five speed gearbox into the BJ45 Troopy for a while but think I have confused myself. It seems to be straight forward in the late vehicles, 1984 or so but the earlier ones I have seen from around 1982 still have the gearbox parking brake and I recall reading...

    Spring time, BJ73 leaf wear

    Spring bushes were noted on the annual inspection but while underneath a good look at the springs revealed some issues. The ride is good and the height OK with nothing sagging but should I be concerned with the amount of wear on these leaves?

    BJ45 Troopy roof question

    Hi. I am thinking of getting a BJ45 Troopy for camping trips as the 73 is a little lacking on inside space.

    FRP top question

    I have just discovered that the FRP top on my BJ73 is missing nearly all the bolts that secure the rear of it to the sides of the vehicle. I think there are 4 per side and there is only one on the right and none on the left! My question is: should there be a rubber strip between the FRP top...

    New here. BJ73 curiosity

    Hi, First post. Just bought my first Landcruiser. Its a 1988 BJ73 in reasonable and tidy condition, drives well and has a sweet engine that someone has added a turbo. Looking over it I noticed a curious modification to the front spring shackles. Each inner shackle has a piece of angle bolted...
