A simple question, but I was just curious. I know a bunch of people have issues with the sunroofs (leaks, etc). Do all of the US-models come with them? Because I know a bunch of the Australian and Latin-American models don't.

Sunroof was optional, but it is very rare to see one without sunroof. It is more rare than cloth seats. I had been looking for my LC for 2 years and i have not seen even a pictures of one without sunroof in NA. In Australia and other countries it is more common to see them without sunroof.

A few on the forum are lucky enough to have one without, but I've never seen one either. I someday hope to weld sheet metal over mine and make it look like it never had one from the outside.

I'm a lucky one. I thought about installing the one from my wreck into the sunroof delete cruiser. The fine members here talked me out of it.

Cloth. I'm surprised the cloth is rare. Both 91's were/are cloth, the 94 is cloth and one my dad flipped, a 92, was also cloth.

I'll have to take some pics, there may be one floating around here somewhere. I'll see if I can dig it up.

Update: the only pic I have.
This is the day it landed in my hands. I bought it sight unseen, off craigslist, in Austin when I lived in Dallas, with a blown motor. The paint is horrible. I think at least one other person here had their eye on it, but I could be wrong.



Threw the motor and trans and transfer from this one in and she rolls on.

I'm one snob who would happily trade the leather for cloth. I've heard the cloth seats have more legroom. And that leather is pretty cold around here 4 months out of the year.

No, not planning on installing any sissy seat heaters either.:wrench:

I think they do, but I've never measured. The 95 has leather and it seems as if your right on top of the steering wheel with seat all the way back. However, I don't think any of the Land Cruisers listed in my signature, besides the 03, have adequate leg room. You get used to it though.

Thanks for the replies. I was trying to find out in order to gauge interest in roof consoles, but since they won't work with a sunroof, I guess I've found my answer!!
