Please check in and introduce yourself to the group.


Inland Empire Cruisers was developed due to the large geographical area the IE encompasses. We're not quite LA, OC, or San Diego and there are a lot of members in the IE. Inland Empire Cruisers membership is open to all series of Land Cruisers. The hope is that this forum will encourage locals to meet and greet, organize trail rides, and support one another with the collective knowledge each of us brings. Much of this thread was borrowed from So.Cal 80s. Enough with the blah...blah...you get it. If you reside in the IE, support your local clubhouse!

Now for the official Inland Empire Cruisers salute, :flipoff2:.

1.First name.
2.Location.
3.Year, make (LC or LX), and any modifications you have done.
4.What you like to do with your ride? (i.e. expedition, hard core, family truckster)
5.Anything personal you would like to add? (family, hobbies, work industry)
6.Pictures, pictures, pictures…please post some pictures of your ride and anything else you feel is appropriate to help the other members get a feel for who you are.

Couple more pics!!! Just finished rebuilding the fronts, think I got all my gaskets and o-rings ordered. Gonna do front crank seal and oil pump gasket next weekend. Then speedo o ring and oil pan, then all the drips should be fixed!!!!

I also have a snorkel kit the PO gave me.
What are some opinions on that? Yes, no? With all this rain I was thinking maybe :)

Did you have a shop install your lift? If so, which shop? I'm in Hesperia.
