    Hello all. Just moved out to Phoenix from central California. I have a 2014 fj cruiser, and a 1985 fj60. I’m looking for som land cruiser mentors or just wrenching/trailing friends.

    Hello everyone,

    I have been offorading for about 15 years and in that time a I have three offorading SUVs. I had Isuzu trooper for a couple years because the family grew out of the TJ (still miss it on cool days) which turned out to be an inexpensive lesson in learning what I wanted in a full size SUV.

    After watching several YouTube videos of 4xoverland, I wanted the reliability and comfort of a land crusier. The more I researched the more I wanted one so I picked one up about two years ago from a local dealer. It checked all the boxes and it's wife approved (rear ac for the kids).

    Completed runs

    Bull dog canyon
    Box canyon
    Back way to crown king
    Cherry Creek Rd (near Young)

    Fun stuff replaced

    T- heater hose
    Throttle body
    Radiator

    Mod Order of operations

    33ko2
    Sliders
    Just differential.com stage 1 lift
    Land cruiser Phil's rear mud flap delete
    Dissent aluminum skid plates

    After seeing the craftsmanship of Dissent, I will likely go for Ben's front and rear bumpers once funds replenish.

    Looking forward to going to one of the group meeting and runs sometime in the near future.

    Read back, years on the forum... to see all the cool stuff that goes on with this group. It's a cool thing!

    For reference in the upcoming needs category, keep in mind @murf at Camelback Toyota for your needs. Nothing like having a dealership that knows all series of these vehicles and is extra active on this board or sponsoring things!

    Welcome to the site @Cleric Duran great looking 100~

    Hi I'm Avi, and just bought my first Land Cruiser after lusting after them for years. She's '99 with a locking rear diff and a 2.5" OME lift. I'm stoked to take her out and stretch her legs when I get the chance! I'm also a noob at this 4x4 and overlanding stuff so I'm looking forward to learning as much as I can.

    Welcome Avi! Nice score. The Land Cruiser looks familiar. A picture of it before it got expensive :).

    Howdy all, my name is Steve and I’m in South Tucson. I have a built mid travel GX470 and an untouched 83’ FJ60. Look forward to meeting you guys at the next Tucson meeting.
