    Uh, yeah, still feeling the strong bias in this thread... Ward supporting his own vendors.

    What do you mean "huh"?

    You post vendors who stock Terrain Tamer products, which you wholesale into the USA (and Canada... sort of), don't list shops that also work on Land Cruisers of all kinds as suggested by others in the list at the top such as my business. And, thanks, I supply my own parts and have my own suppliers...

    I've been supporting this market in Canada and the USA for quite a few years longer than some, and have more real-time day to day working knowledge than most, and it's not arm chair expert type stuff, it's from working on Land Cruisers and other vehicles 5 days a week, every week of the year.

    If you're going to be the guy who's apparently in charge of a sticky thread, then you should offer balanced and a lot more complete representation than you have.

    I dont think Ward meant to come across like that, we have been submitting names, im not sure anyone had submitted yours. This list is pretty much crowd sourced, i would not take offense about it. SO post up your contact info and a little description to get you on the list!

    I may be missing something here, but RADD Cruisers was mentioned (sort of) along with Overland Truck Parts in the first post.

    John -
    Thank you for your comments. Sorry you are displeased with my efforts. As noted above, I am a recording secretary, taking comments and contributions from happy customers for shops to be added. Of the 20 shops in the first post of the thread above (including RADD and LHM, which will be modified to reflect Dan's departure), there is one mention of Terrain Tamer. Of the shops listed, half have sourced parts through us, but that is not an element in listing or content posted. I have never refused to post a suggested shop.

    Bottom line - I don't pick the shops to be added, nor do I create the content describing the shops. In every case, the shop added was through thread post or PM suggestion from a truck owner. RADD was not listed prior to Andrew's post because no one had previously made the request.

    If you have a message to share with 7X Series owners, this is a great place to share your message through posts - like yours above - in order to help potential customers get to know your business and decide if they want to do business with you.

    Have a nice day.

    They are auto electrical experts, hey work on any vehicle or machine so 24V is no big deal.
    They will rebuild carbs, alternators... Almost anything.

    Hensley's Radiator, Charlottesville VA. Super old-school.
    Fred did me right re-coring my radiator and modifying the ac piping for my new condenser.
    Filled the ac with real freon.
    He also rebuilt my power steering and oil line hoses. He even sells extra thick copper washers for banjo fittings.
    Every one working there has tons of experience.
