    Cool .. I'd like to see the newer ones some day. I fell in love with those when I started looking at Arctic Trucks .. always have some nice later model prados on 38's.

    so is it a lengthened 70 series underneath with 70's axles etc...? i thought prados were built lighter than other LC's. If it is a true 70 series then that truck is way more usable than a troopie and very interesting and a serious bargain.

    Looks to me to be a 2L-T, however I am not up on the later models...

    There is going to be some interesting options and vehicles coming to Canada over the next 2 years or so from Japan...

    Not sure if you would call it a LJ78 Prado or not...

    When did the 2L-TE come into play?

    Looks like an auto.

    Should be coil sprung, solid axles, high pinion front...

    The 50th Ann book even uses the different terms using "heavy" and "light" duty.

    The Prado LJ71 would be the light duty version of the BJ71 iiuc.

    2.7L 4cyl diesel, I think that it has the running gear like the Australian Bundera which is a Hi-lux PU.

    the crossover pipe reads EFI turbo diesel so that would be a 2LTE (2446cc or something like that)

    While this site is more Surf specific, it does have some information on the 2L-TE.

    Head gaskets and cooling can be an issue with this family of engine. Once fixed supposed to be great.

    its an LJ, so its the light duty 70, coils, Hilux sixed drivetrain. Still a neat rig.
