    I never posted my LC since I bought it. I know it is a mall cruiser with WAAG bars and guard, but, hey, it came with the car and I am going to keep it.
    She has 119k miles so far.

    don't forget, though, the bull-bars may lead your fender-bender to be much more expensive than if you had no bars --

    It'll look better with the WAAG garbage taken off.

    I was contemplating on taking off the grill guard. I really wanted to go for the ARB bull bar w/winch but my financial situation tells me NOT (Iam expecting first baby in May). While I want to take it off, I just don't know how I can get rid of it. My ultimate dream is to have slider instead of running board, ARB bull bar with winch, SOR rear bumper with weing out tire carrier. I am glad it does not have the ruggage rack (my garage is very low and it fits perfect), and rear wind deflector.
    Maybe some other time, I will fulfill my dream or go get LM102.

    Yeah, I'd like to all that someday too, but remember, don't discredit Slee Offroad by calling him SOR, :eek: some consider that a bad word, as it refers to Specter Off Road :-[

    You need sliders, dragging that belly over all sorts of stuff! When you putting a lift in and getting some real tires?

    Nice TRUCK. They don't like to be called cars.
    Ohm.....cruiser,cruiser,cruiser.....Ohm
    Just kidding. It's a very nice Land Cruiser.
    I love the clean lines of a stock 80. :cheers:

    How so? I thought they were supposed to protect you and damage the other vehicle in a collision?

    not the bull bars jim, the shwag WAAG bars as they tend to fold up and wad into the rest of the body causing more damage than a bumper alone.

    [glow=black,2,2]Jim ,

    Damage by association .... A panel which might not have received any direct damage in a low speed collision will sustain wrap-around trauma as the bars contort and are driven into said panel(s) .[/glow]

    Hmmm. I didn't know what WAAG bars were (the bit that bends round to cover the lights?) Don't have that name here. A bull bar is the whole thing to me. Thanks... Oh, in that case I agree with Eric.

    WAAG is a manufacturer of lighter grille guards, isn't it?
