    2002 LX470 Black Onyx Build Thread (IG: @choyota)

    *This is somewhat for personal record-keeping and a little bit of sharing. I'll go back and refine some of the stuff I listed with actual model numbers and some pics here and there. Picked up an Black 2002 LX470 in May 2023 w/ 235k on the odo, bone stock (aside from a AHC-delete), from a single...

    Good Times - 1992 HZJ73

    It's been a while for me to get things going on my 1992 JDM HZJ73. I picked it up in October of 2022 and drove it 800km home. A few things about it. It's a ZX model that came in white, color 045 with trim FC10, but is painted blue with "Good Times" graphics/decals. It has 232,000km, a...

    [Builds] “Marsha” The Swiss Army Knife Build

    When the end of the line for the 200 series was announced, we immediately called our dealer and got an allocation for a 2021 Heritage Edition in Blizzard Pearl with the intention that it would be my wife’s daily for a few years, then I’d build it up for adventure. We took delivery in April ‘21...

    Roaming Lost: 1990 HDJ81

    I'm really hyped on this one; I picked up a 1990 HDJ81—triple locked, 1HDT diesel motor. The first drive home was 8 hrs, and did it with no issues. It's pretty wild that a 33-year-old truck runs like a dream! The first thing I had done was a PDI intercooler and trans cooler. Also added...

    Experience with Slee builds?

    I'm thinking about having Slee do a build on my '21 HE. I'm sure there are folks here who have gone through that process, but my searching came up empty. Did you have Slee build out your 200? Would love to hear about your experience!

    93 FZJ80 Swamp Thing Resurrection

    What started out as a donor vehicle purchase for my 97 LX has now turned into a resurrection project. I originally picked Swamp Thing out of the woods where it sat for 4 years as it was one of the infamous "ran when parked" vehicles. At the time, I was looking for some donor parts, rocker...

    Amateur Overlander

    I introduced myself a little earlier in the week, but I was able to pick up our "new" Land Cruiser yesterday evening. It is a 1995 with sunroof and leather, not sure what trim that makes it. Has 179K miles, which was about as low as I could find without resorting to highway robbery. Paid $10K...

    Stella: Giving life to a FJ62

    I received this FJ62 in a barter with another MUD member quite a few years ago. He had pulled the engine and rebuilt it. Long story...but that engine ended up going into my wife's FJ62, "Urkel", which has it's own thread. Needless to say, the truck was pretty nasty inside. We cleaned what...

    Project Wrong Way builds the “Tauler Jack”

    I ordered the “Tauler Jack” kit from Brennan’s Garage. It’s a kit that converts a 8000lb trailer jack to work like a hilift, but better. But if welding, and it’s ready to rock. Worth looking into…

    Finally found the ac condenser in stock in AUS through Cruiser Brothers in California. The original part no. for the 77's was unavailable anywhere (Japan, UAE, AUS). I ordered this recommended replacement. The drier was wrong. Also, the flared fitting on the tube connecting the condenser to the...
