    1998 Toyota Land Cruiser 100 Series


    Apparently the hundreds in the hills guys want you to have a 100 series to attend?!

    Don’t ‘need’ one but I wouldn’t want to pass up a deal.

    I didn't look at this. Seller told me it has rust, came from Wisconsin or something like that.

    Don't let rust scares you. It will do HIH just fine :)

    I'm an AZ guy! All I know about rust is to stay away from it.

    I agree when you live in Arizona why you buy a modern vehicle that is not that rare from anywhere else. CarFax will tell you which ones to avoid. Also good to avoid those that were registered in a area that had a hurricane like Harvey and Irma last year. There was a thread a while back in the 40/55 section where a 82 FJ40 was going up for auction in Houston. Some didn't it would be all that bad. All I could think was run Forest run.

    Cruiser is from Wisconsin. Seller said the rust is really not that bad.

    “Yeah, but I'm sayin', that TruCoat, you don't get it and you get oxidization problems. It'll cost you a heck of lot more'n five hundred!”

    I drove this truck the other day and it is solid for amount of mileage it has. Yes there is rust on the undercarriage but nothing on the body panels. Interior is in great shape for year and mileage. I spent a bit of time going through all the receipts of the service performed.
