    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.

    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

    Same here, would like to have an 80 but I have too many Yota's as it is. Hmm.
