    Builds  Chloe; My first FJ60

    First post...gonna be long...a lot happened really quickly. I've always loved the FJ60s, but just never had the time/$$/know-how to own one. Well, that recently changed. I just bought my first FJ60, a 1987 with 197K miles on the original 2F and 4-speed manual transmission. I wasn't really...

    Bell Build Thread

    Hello all, after consuming content here, I figured it was time to post some up in return in case anyone else finds it useful. I purchased a new-to-me 2014 LX-570 in May of this year after 10+ years of having full-size trucks. Priorities to me for vehicle selection were off-road capability (we...

    WB's LX470 Build

    Well the "out with the old" portion of the plan happened too quickly. The "in with the new" took far too long. After 6 years in a 60 and another cross country move on the horizon, I decided to sell my trusty 85 FJ 60. Awesome truck and I hope to own another again. After the VA to Cali move, I...

    Civil_Offroad’s Battle Cruiser Build

    Hey there MUD Fans I have been a long time lurker (since 2010) on this forum prior to my first Hundy. But, money, time, and work never really permitted me to get deep into adventure. Then came 2017, when I stumbled upon this 99 Land Cruiser (1B1 Champagne Pearl) in San Luis Obispo, CA. I...

    Builds  1991 - HZJ75 Troopy Camper Build

    Promised everyone in the classifieds that I would start a build thread for this given it's a fairly well known rig around these parts. She was originally imported by @PNWScooby with less 14K original KM's and sold to @jmlockwood after a some basic upgrades and TLC. John added some tasteful bits...

    Checklist for Basic Overland Build - 100 series

    Hi all, I'm back after 2 years. I sold my last 100 series 2 years ago because I needed a sedan for work due to the miles I drive. It just didn't work for me to build out the cruiser for overlanding/camping as well as use it as a daily driver putting 30k miles a year on it. This time around i'm...

    kalebob's 2000 Land Cruiser Build

    The Orgin Story Hello all - new to these parts and to LC/off-road vehicles in general. Went though high school driving a string of turbo Audis from the 80s and currently have a 2001 A6 with the 4.2L V8 that I swapped from an auto to a 6 spd manual. After realizing that 2 inches of clearance...

    Cruiser newbie build

    Hey guys, so after months of thinking about a new truck to replace my Tundra, I decided on going with an 80 series LC. I always loved it's aesthetic, and coupled with it's reliability and capability in taking me wherever I need to go for my bow hunting trips, the 80 series was a no-brainer. I...

    Nighthawk: 80 guy builds a 100

    Alright here goes my attempt to start a build thread. You guys are good writers here in the 100 section so I'll try to use correct spelling a majority of the time. As the title suggests, and previous posts here in the 100 section, I'm coming from an 80 series. It wasn't just any 80 series...

    Just picked up a 1979 Pickup

    I just picked up this 1979 pickup. I’ve been wanting one for awhile and this deal just fell into my lap. The previous owner got it as a payment for some work he had done. He told me he had no use for it and it was sitting there for over 5 years. It has an older GM 3.8l 231 with a turbo 350...

    Builds  Oso the Land Cruiser

    Hi guys, just wanted to post an intro thread (maybe this will turn into a build thread?). Here's Oso, the Land Cruiser that I am blessed to now call mine. Will soon be getting some mods on the way. This has been a dream car of mine for pretty much my whole life, my family had a FZJ80 up until...

    Hello everyone, starting a build thread for my 2006 GX470 (currently at 121K). A little backstory: my parents bought this car when i was in elementary school and I thought it was the coolest thing. You could raise the height with the touch of a button and it had a touch screen (navigation) in...

To share my bonehead moves and triumphs and document the next chapter for this deserving 1990 FJ62 270k miles. Undriven, untested. Bought out of a tow yard with a clean title and a dead battery. The...

    What suspension for BJ75?

    As one part of the rehab of my '87 Troopy, I'll be replacing the tired oem suspension. I don't want anything too complex. What have you used and what are the pros of the kit you used?

    1975 FJ40 Build in the FL Panhandle

    I purchased my first FJ40 in Birmingham, AL a few weeks ago. This 1975 FJ40 has spent time in Texas, South Florida, Guatemala, Georgia, and Alabama before making its way back to Florida. It has rust in the usual places: front fenders, rear sill, and quarters. The frame looks pretty good from...

    Phil's '06 Build

    How's it going everyone? I've been lurking for a bit and finally pulled the trigger on an '06 Nav/KDSS with a full service history sitting at 100k from Geprgia. The dash was cracked but had been mentioned in the service history so Lexus honored the repair and I've already had that done. I've got...
