    Landcruiser Prado KZJ78: To Lift or Not to Lift?

    Thanks man! 100%, get a Land Cruiser. I bought this KZJ78 as it is in the pic. Paint is not stock, my best guess is a Porsche blue. Fenders and bumper are painted a matte black, not stock though.

    Dobinsons rear bumper fitment

    Thanks all. I reached out to Dobinsons and the US vendor to see what they can do. Really don’t want to pull the damn thing off again but you’re probably right jfz80. Definitely don’t want rust and I’ve been able to avoid it so far.

    Dobinsons rear bumper fitment

    Haha the rocks have already removed them a few times, they’re barely hanging on. Any danger to the bumper staying in contact with the body panel?

    Dobinsons rear bumper fitment

    Hey all, looking for some help with fitting my Dobinsons rear bumper with dual swing outs. I installed and adjusted as best I could given the small amount of play in the brackets but still running into issues with the bumper contacting the body panel on the sides (see pics). I’d love to have...

    Intermittent no start, dead batteries

    Final update… installed a new fuel filter, primer cap and fuel heater and it’s finally fixed. Fires up without issue now every time. Thanks everyone for all the help!

    Intermittent no start, dead batteries

    Ok so I think I have it pinned down finally, and it looks like your last paragraph is spot on. I waited for ever for the damn parts but I replaced glow plugs, valve cover gasket and intake manifold gasket a few days ago. Went to start and still didn’t want to turn over. Tried hand pumping the...

    Builds The "Red Rocket" Troopy

    Looks like a fun trip! Man I almost pulled the trigger on that Prado, if it’s the same one that came from Japanese Classics in Richmond (99% sure). Very nice rig.

    Intermittent no start, dead batteries

    Did some more searching and I think the glow system on this model of KZJ78 didn’t have a glow fuse, but rather uses a fusible link. Does this check? I think I found the fusible link just upstream of where power is connected to the glow plug bus bar. I tested power at the bus bar and on the...

    Intermittent no start, dead batteries

    Thanks for the reply!! Sorry I had missed this before, just read today as I went to reply to this thread again. So like I mentioned before, I replaced the batteries with no real change. I ended up bringing the truck to a reputable Cruiser-friendly shop with lots of experience with these JDM...

    Intermittent no start, dead batteries

    Thanks for the info. I just went to pick up the charged batteries and one of them tested bad after all. Bought two new batteries, group size 24. Can anybody confirm that’s the right size? I couldn’t find any info online for US equivalent battery sizes. I’ll run another earth cable for good...

    Intermittent no start, dead batteries

    Fuel filter was replaced last year so I’m assuming it’s still good.

    What’s up gents? I’m having some issues with my 1993 KZJ78 Prado, 1KZ-TE with a 12v dual battery setup. Been dealing with hard start or no start over the last few days. Drove from VA to NC for thanksgiving last week. Morning after the long drive, started up and made a quick 1 mi trip up the...

    DFG Offroad Drawer System Reviews

    Yep it’s the DFG drawer extension. Stores away on top of the drawer when not in use and hooks on to the end of the drawer when you need it. I’d say it took my wife and me about 3.5 hours in total. That includes time messing around trying to make holes line up without cutting metal and injury...

    DFG Offroad Drawer System Reviews

    I have the DFG drawers and I love them. I ordered when they were still on back order so I expected the delay. Took a couple of months but it was worth the wait. I got a couple of updates during the process, kept me satisfied. Considering current issues with international logistics chains I...
