But I also wanted to put out there that I'm looking for a 100-series to be the more around-town sidekick to my '86 FJ60. If anyone can advise on the rust issue of the one I refer to...

    Does anyone believe this rust is worth repairing?

    Hey all, I just recently got a 1996 lx450 to turn into an overland project, not sure if this is the right place to post something like this since I’m new to forums so I apologize if it’s out of place, the model I picked up does have a couple rust holes near the windshield, and I’d really hate to...

    80 series rust questions

    Apologies if I'm posting on the wrong page; I'm new here, but hoping to get advice on fixing rust and at what point it becomes a problem not worth fixing. Now I'll admit I did a stupid thing--I bought the truck from people in Illinois without getting pics of the frame/powertrain. 150,000 mi w/...

    What’s your favorite rattle can?

    What’s your favorite spray paint for the drivetrain and chassis? I am not looking for showroom pretty, just a solid color and a rust barrier. I used Rustoleum self etching primer and enamel on my rear hubs. I am hoping it will hold up. What have worked long term for you?

    Oh nooooo..... RUST!

    I was washing my cruiser off a while back and came across this bubble on the bottom of the passenger rear quarter panel. I know it doesn’t look like much compared to most cruisers out in the wild, but I thought I was clean. After consulting with my Land Cruiser support group @OSS @CenTXFJ60...
