    LC100 to 5th Gen 4Runner

    I've driven a 100 series for abut 20 years. Picked up a 4R Limited today. Still feeling it out, but I like some of the modern tech. Most of the tech on it (lane departure, precollision, etc) I'll prob leave of for daily driving. The 4R V6 does not have the growl my 100 series had when you...

    100 series Windshield Molding questions

    Is the 100 series windshield molding functional or cosmetic? Windshield replaced, but molding on both sides needs replaced. After reading various threads on "how to replace" here and other web sources, is it needed? No doubt, it looks better with the molding, but can I just fill in the...

    Should I not buy a 100 just cause it's an LX470?

    I was an '03 LC 100 guy for 11 yrs til a deerstrike killed mine. I now have and '04 LX470. What I have noticed in the first year of driving: Parts/labor are somewhat more expensive, but not by that much. Lexus service and loaners put the Toyota dealer to shame. A few more bells/whistles than...

    The MUD 100 series Photos thread

    yeah, but in 95% of my life, they're handy for little person entry. However.....if they were to be destroyed on a trail, then I guess maybe it's time to find a replacement.

    The MUD 100 series Photos thread

    Spent some time at Windrock today. We stick to the bunny trails since stock and solo. Despite a new map, the trail deteriorated from easy to difficult in rapid fashion. After finding a point of being able to turn around without falling off a cliff, we made it back with some minor damage.

    Water leaking passengers side console when raining

    Just did a windshield replacement on a 2004 LX470 I bought. Rust started in the upper windshield trim near A pillar and led to similar water dispersal. Check the fabric of the A pillar on that door, and the headliner near the sunvisor on that side.

    Why did you buy your Hundy?

    I looked at various SUVs for a couple of years before deciding upon the Land Cruiser. What attracted me to it originally was the fact that it is used all over the world in places where maintenance and repairs are not always available. So reliability is a must. The Land Rovers that were also used...

    470 brakepedal causing clicking gear shifter

    The "new to me" 2004 470 has an odd behavior that I'm hoping someone has encountered before. When I tap the brakes (not enough to slow down the vehicle, just enough to engage the brake lights), I can feel a dull click in the gear shifter. It just had a clean bill of health from the dealer...

    Might have broken my sled

    The damage estimate was approx $14k, which is what my carrier paid me for the vehicle. I'm going to take a break from the LC life for a bit and drive a nimble German import. I figure in a few years, I'll be back.

    Might have broken my sled

    As a follow up, the vehicle sustained damage similar to Flintknapper's description. It's a total loss. If anyone is in the Rochester, NY area and is interested in the salvage, PM me.
