With Brayden being a freshman now and soon being able to drive to school, I started looking for a car. Found a couple pretty nice cars and when I showed her she said " Dad I want a Landcruiser!" Talking about a happy dad! So I started looking and this is what I found. She was tickled to death.

I've had it home now for a couple of weeks and this is what it looks like now.

We are wanting to put on an aftermarket front bumper so keep your eyes open for me.

The paint looks distinctly nicer than the last time I saw it. How did the dorkel install go?

I power washed the pealing clear off and that made a huge difference.

I have to get it down to my paint guy this month and find out my options.

The snorkel, it's a good thing I read reviews here on MUD first.
I double checked the template as stated in the reviews and all but one hole was off.
After moving them and matching my fender crease with the snorkel, it was a piece of cake.
Well spend $80 if you ask me.

Update, the Cruiser is running great! Brayden gave it the name Bruce, she said if it gives her fits she will call it Caitlyn.LOL
I added a train horn, a pioneer stereo and a 12" sub for her. She won't let me put any stickers on Bruce yet.

Lucky kid! She's stoked. My 6 year old daughter has already claimed my '91 pickup.

Since Brayden is driving farther than just school and back. (20 miles) And her grandma decided to get a new car. We decided to get her into something newer and better gas mileage.
So sad to say that Bruce is now for sale. I told everyone at Tall Corn that 5k would buy him, I think that is reasonable.
ARB compressor and tank, rear heater bypassed, no leaks, new y pipe and cats.

Engine light O2, air bag light.

Still gets 12MPG

I started driving it to work and took it hunting this weekend. It's too much of the family to get rid of.

LOL

Did you just basically cut that all off flush and weld a plate on the bottom? I need to do mine, it's just starting to rust through.

I had to add some to it, I could only go up so far on the inside as you can see from the picture. The other side should be flush like you are saying. It isn't as bad.
