    My 83 SR5 build

    This is my first 3rd gen. I spotted this truck in an old mans shed off the road. It had been sitting the last 14 years after a never completed timing chain job was started and not completed. After asking about it for several months and taking awhile for him to find the keys it was finally mine...

    75 Series Restore

    Hi, I recently picked up a 75 series to restore and use as my daily. It has a 2h, it is ex-mines so one of the compliance plates is missing. Is anyone able to point me in the right direction to locate the chassis number, so I can get a new one done?

    1992 HZJ-75 Troopy: Going to need a bunch of advice on this build.....

    Whether it is a good or bad idea has yet to be seen, but I was able to purchase an old 1992 75 Series 1HZ troopy. Mechanically seems legit at first glance, body and interior are a bit rough but those should be easy fixes as the interior is pretty sparse to begin with. I am rookie with dealing...

    Stigr build

    I bought a new white 2018 LC200 (Stigr) to travel with family in North America, South America, and maybe overseas. I have two kids, and my significant other has two kids. Stigr is my chosen means to create experiences with them. I needed to figure out how to carry as many as 6 people and their...

    F this S. I'm going to live in my FZJ

    I'm checking out. I know just enough science and history to be freaked out by the realities of this pandemic, with cases skyrocketing in my area with people who don't give a fk about their health and never will. I also don't really have much going for me besides a sense of adventure and total...

    Builds  One World, One LX Build Thread

    While I have never really thought about doing a build thread, I have recently had a couple of requests to compile one and figured that I'd oblige. Also, I have exhausted other ways to spend my free time these days. Hopefully something I post in here will be as useful to somebody as the many...

    80 Series Adventure Rig Build!

    80 Series Adventure Rig Build! Well, after selling my 100 Series (see my other build thread) a couple of years ago, I decided I wanted a return to the Cruiser Life. Here in New Zealand, a lot of our back-country areas are laden with braided river beds, deep river crossing, and large...

    Hey all, I started here with my FJ80 build but then recently picked up a GX 470 for the fam: This is mostly going to be an ownership project thread, but I figure the more info collected here, the merrier! Just getting this thread started because otherwise all the stuff I'm doing just piles...

    Dipty - 1994 FZJ80

Dad bought the 80 back in late 2007 early 2008, honestly too young at the time to remember exactly when from a doctor who bough it for...

    Builds  KDJ95W-GKPSY Journal

    I purchased a 2000 kdj95 with 149000kms from a japanese auction house through PacificCoastAuto and I imported it in Vancouver. It was a fun process. It was ready to pick up from the docks on Dec 25. One of the best days ever. Car started no problem. Drove it home in the thickest of Vancouver...

    The Turtle Build - 1978 FJ40

    My kids named it The Turtle, for the half-gone and faded out Marlin Crawler sticker on the back. I picked it up a few weeks ago from Kentucky. The truck lived some or maybe all of its life in GA. It's a woods truck, for sure, and well suited as such. Body is rusty, but frame is solid. Drivetrain...

    Builds  The Big Bad Rad Dad LX Build

    I never bothered starting a build thread because I didn't think this rig would ever be worthy, but I've been getting a lot of requests/questions so here we go... I purchased this 2015 LX about a year ago after searching for about 6 months. It was a single owner (60 year old female executive)...

    I should have started this thread last year, but here it goes: After owning two Land Rovers, it was time to throw in the towel. I found a 3x locked ‘97 in Steamboat Springs last year and pulled the trigger. The previous owner had already outfitted the truck pretty well with ARB and Slee...

    Builds  Paul R's BJ73

    Since we are all still shut in, I figured I would give some updates on the newest addition to the stable. It is a 1987 BJ73 from the the windshield registration and license plates it looks like it was a European spec truck from the Canary Islands, but I bought it off eBay so I don't know a ton...

    Builds  Operation Lexus Land Cruiser Prado - A Bubbles Joint

    Welp. I bought me a Lexus GX470 after giving up on finding a decent mileage LC100/LX470. I really lucked out apparently as the one I got is a unicorn in the GX world in that it is a sport package without navigation. :flipoff2: Follow along while I turn this female owned, only serviced at the...

    Builds  LEXpedition Overland Build Thread

    Hello all, Just starting out with my 2011 LX570. I'm hoping to build a rig that will take me (and my wife and/or kids occasionally) on some great adventures. I will not be building a rock crawler or mudder. Simply something that is reliable and will get to those places that are off the beaten...

    Bought this rig today! Been an fj cruiser guy since I started driving (2012) and have been eyeing 40s for a few years. Wanted a running driving project and got one. The project name comes from us backing the rig off the trailer. I told my girlfriend to hit the brakes and she yelled "which one...
