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.

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.

Nice work. Both my kids started with 80's. Ones moved to a 40 and the other to a 100. Enjoy

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

So tempting but trying to talk the wife into letting me spend $5k...
Same here, would like to have an 80 but I have too many Yota's as it is. Hmm.

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.
