    ...that I feel like I’m just now being let in on the secret that is the 100 series. Having owned mini trucks, a Hilux, 40s, 60s, a 70 series and two 80s, I cannot tell you how impressed I am with the 100. I just bought this well maintained 2000 a few weeks ago with 318k on it. Got it for, what I considered, a good deal. I was hesitant about the mileage, but after driving it I was 100% sold. What a beast for chump change compared to the increasing prices of the 60. I will sacrifice the solid axle for road manners, build quality and that extra 1 MPG any day. Sure, they don’t look as good but what a difference the way it drives. Anyhow, I’m sold and kinda amazed on how awesome these rigs are.

    That is all.

    I thought you were going to say, “Go DAWGS!”

    But you’re right: as the owner of a Vortec-powered FJ62, when I picked up my 100 back in November the only thing I could think about was what took me so long. I miss the 80 I had over a decade ago, but the 100 makes me forget (and forgive) so much. It’s a velvet hammer.

    @Dozer18 - I’m not gonna bring politics into this :)

    A velvet hammer is probably the best way to put it.

    land cruisers in general are just the best :)

    My brother has a 100... I have a 100... my mom has a 200, had a 100, and an 80.... you could maybe say, we like land cruisers?

    Every new model, Toyota improves the cruiser in many ways. If you like the 100, you will love the 200, better in almost everyway =) But for look I still prefer my 80! =)
