    :BUILDS: Blinded by the diesel, wrapped up like a duece - 1975 BJ40

    Well, I did it. I bought a 40 series LandCruiser to go with my FJ60. It's a 1975 BJ40 originally from Costa Rica. This will be the official build thread, as it needs a lot. TONS of good things about it for sure. I'm already learning things and broken promises I made to myself, so I feel...

    La Honda-Build Thread

    I started looking into GX470s right out of college in 2015. I had moved to the bay area from Colorado for a job and was lusting for how easy adventuring once was. At the time I drove a Audi a4 station wagon that I inherited from my mom that never really fit right. It was a great car but probably...

    Builds  Aussie HZJ78 in Canada: "Ozzi" (simple build)

    Hey all :) I have found the forum immeasurably helpful while researching (and then waiting for the arrival...) of my HZJ78 from Australia. I don't want to be "one of those" who just lurks, but I also don't have very much to contribute (yet?!) in terms of knowledge or experience... so at least...

    Yoda - 89 Pickup

    I've had this pickup for about 10 years now. I leeched off Mud on and off over the years for information, and finally made an account about 3 months ago after buying a 80 Series for my wife. I figured I'd at least show you guys what you've helped me accomplish. First, this isn't a trail truck...

    Builds  Saved from scrap - '97 LX450 build thread

    Firstly .. Hi! New to Mud. Been on the fence for a lot of years thinking about getting another project vehicle ... And then COVID-19 happened. Since I have all of this time on my hands now, I figured why not? Wife is also 100% on board with the idea. Obviously I had to strike while that iron was...

    Lucy Liu, a long overdue 5.3 build thread

    Builds  LCPrado's 2016 GX Build Thread - Lagertha

    Hey guys, I've been lurking on here for a couple months and decided to post my first build thread. I recently purchased a 2016 GX CPO with 27xxx miles. My previous rig was a 2007 Nissan Pathfinder. I bought it from a family member when I really needed a car and it turned into a fun project. It's...

    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...

    EchoSpartan’s Salt Lake Cruiser

    Hey everyone! I’ve been lurking the forums for a long time now, and made my account a week after picking up a totally babied 100 series from my best friend. I’ve actually migrated to ih8mud from T4R.org where I had my build thread for my 3rd gen 4runner. If you are interested in that rather...

    Meet Uma and not the one you are thinking of

    This is going to be a thread of all of my projects that i have done on my 40 that my kids regretfully named Uma. When i first bought her the was no radio in it so when the kids got in it they would sing a song from a Disney tinybopper movie where one of the characters sings "what's my name...

    Building my FZJ80

    Figured I would start a thread to document the progress. It started as a Cruiser whos better days were behind it, parked under a pine tree that liked to shed. I got it through a family friends coworker. Knowing what I know now, I definitely paid too much up front 🤷‍♂️ . I was going to write it...

    Builds  Mudhorn’s build thread - ‘16 GX460 premium

    Hello there. Wanted to start a build thread for my 2016 GX460 to document my progress with the rig as well as share ideas. This is my first venture into off-roading and overlanding. Building this so I can take the family on some adventures. By all means I’m no pro when it comes to fab or...

    Builds  PNW 2016 GX460 Premium Build

    My journey here started ironically with almost buying @nw_fj62's 100-series as he had recently bought a 2013 GX460. After talking to him about his plans, I ended up convincing myself to follow suit and bought a 2016 GX460 Premium in Jan 2020. I purchased it while visiting family over the...

    Building "Burt" the 80

    Hey guys, First post on Mud so apologies if this is in the wrong place... Just traded my 2012 Trail Team FJ about a month ago for a 1994 80 series. Super stoked about it. Single owner before me and was owned by a Toyota mechanic. The thing was dead stock and had nearly brand new interior...

    Cincinnati LX Build and Adventure Thread

    Howdy Gang. I finally took the plunge and joined the forum after hanging out and reading/learning for the past couple months. Specifically joined because I just started an adventure with a 2000 LX so that my wife and I could have, well, adventures. A little background: I’ve been intermittently...

    Builds Beater FJ60 Build Thread

    I’ve always been a 60-Series fan, but @HemiAlex really got me hooked when he let me drive his FJ60 last year! Since then, I’ve been searching for an ‘85-87 due to the easier H55 swap, and finally decided to pull the trigger on an ‘86 FJ60 with 224,000 miles. It’s got lots of bondo, but the...

    Builds  Broke College Kid Build Thread

    I've spent countless hours reading the amazing builds of so many others here on MUD that I finally think that with the whole situation around the world I should probably spend my down time and put my 2 cent into the jar. Acquiring the Cruiser Backstory: So at this time, I am 17 and it's 2018...
