Gawd, that's awful.

The 'newer' the cruisers get, the more I appreciate the styling of the 80 series and 60 series. Those were classics.

Except when they came out. They were hated by the "purists" of the day.

Looks better than I expected

Why does everyone hate the new Land Cruiser until 10 years later.

Perhaps it's like a new sitcom. You need a few episodes under your belt to feel familiar.

Personally I think it looks like a nice vehicle. It also appears to come without those pesky fender flares that everyone tears off because "flares are gay".

It looks like it would be a lot more at home with 22" rims and 12 subwoofers than in the woods.

The main thing I dislike is the front grill. With that solid plastic front, it seems as if putting on an aftermarket bumper that looks worth a s*** will be a chore.

I 2nd that. I think new LCs are fine if you are a rich fxxxer wanting all luxury. Toyota just needs to bring some of the good s*** to the USA with solid front axles, manual trans options, lockers, etc. But I know nothing of luxury, I own a 40.

The wheels have 5 too many spokes.

I was gonna say, how the fxxx are you going to put an ARB bullbar on that? I wonder if the LC is the same...

Why so sad men? The days of 4-wheeling are over. Global warming, land destruction, I mean, why would anyone want a 4 wheel drive vehicle nowadays?

bumpers will be a pain for guys like Slee, but larger manufacturers will handle it fine. it'll just cost a bit. i bet you'll be looking at 2500-3000 for a bull bar, and some ugly rubber fillers so when you do hit something it doesnt jack up the quarter panel at the seam.
