How do we justify spending big $$$ on sliders, bumpers, and racks when the rig only cost us $? In May I purchased a 1998 LC with 336k miles for $3,800. No rust. It’s in terrific shape. I’d drive it anywhere. I’ve put some new bits into it, starter, radiator and hoses, valve cover and plug gaskets, new OEM shocks and suspension bushings, fluids and tires to name a few. All in, I’ve spent around $5,500. Here’s the dilemma, how do I outfit my truck without spending more than the truck’s worth? Now that I’ve baselined the truck it’s time for the fun stuff, sliders, bumpers, and a rack, but I’m finding it hard to justify spending that kind of money. I live in Central IL and I’m probably one of about three 100s within 100 miles, so I ride with the Jeep crowd. Used LC parts are non-existent. This is simply a topic of conversation as 100s get cheaper. I’ll most likely wait and find things on sale or even fabricate a few items myself. I was simply wondering what people here think about spending big $$$ on $ Land Cruisers.
