They looked after my 61, and now my 75 Troopie; they've no problems finding parts, they get the job done right the first time, etc., etc., and i've no reason to go anywhere else. I've seen at that shop, over the years, foreign Troopies, one or two Dutch ones and a French one (if i remember correctly), from foreigners doing their long-range travels; as well, they often have other JDM vehicles there. Recommended unconditionally, and i wouldn't post this without personal experience and trust in them." ____________________________________________________ BRITISH COLUMBIA Overland Truck Parts Nanaimo, BC Rob Lassman 250-618-8259 firstname.lastname@example.org Experienced veteran Land Cruiser shop owner and wheeler - founded RADD Cruisers in Duncan years ago with lots of experience on diesel, JDM and European models, including 70 Series (he's owned a few).
