Hi All,

I figured I should say hello. Bought my 1995 LC wtih ust 10k miles in 1995 - cashed out part of my 401K to do it (best stupid move I've ever made). I only drive her now when I go on surfing or on an adventure. 139k miles and still pulls like a champ. Found the site looking for a fix for my sticking passenger and now drivers side power seats. Hopefully, the gamiviti fix will solve my issue!

Hi, I'm Henrik from Norway. I have a Toyota Land Cruiser (Prado) KDJ95L-GKPNYW (1 KD-FTV motor and A343F automatic transmission). Bought my car in 2005 - it had originally been sold in Sweden in 2000.

Have had some issues, but the car has overall been quite reliable. :)

Hi all like to introduce myself, my name is Mike Hall and I live in a small mining town called Jwaneng in Botswana. I have just taken delivery of my new (to me) 2001 VZJ95 Prado 3.4 V6. She is in startlingly good condition and believe it or not has only 70000km on the clock. This could or could not be a bad thing as the vehicle stood for a significant amount of time under cover thankfully but standing is usually never a good thing. She is stock standard and finances permitting I will be making a few modifications as I get to know her. Looking forward to spending some time with like minded people and gathering as much information as possible from those out there more knowledgeable than me. Attached image is not the best taken with my cell phone. I will post better ones soon.

Hi everyone,

I’m Zmark, I leave in Cluj, middle of Transylvania/Romania. I have my LCJ90 bought this year in August. It’s a 2001, 3.0l diesel, 163hp. So far no real improvements done, just BFG AT KO2 tires. Normally, I plan for a full IronMan suspension and a 12.000 lbs winch.
Afterwards, we’ll see...

keep in touch!
Zmark

Hi guys,

This is my 95 series Land Cruiser Prado. It's a 2000 model GXL, 5VZ-FE V6 petrol/gasoline engine, A343F automatic transmission. It has 380,000km on the clock. Auto trans was rebuilt a few years ago but I don't think the engine has been touched. Only a few mods so far mostly done by the last owner:
- Towbar w/ electric brake controller
- Upgraded suspension (but not lifted)
- Alloy bullbar
- Mag/alloy wheels
- UHF CB radio

I got this second hand mainly as a camping/getaway vehicle, we have a very old camper trailer and go camping every school holidays, I also use it to go to work a couple of days a week.

This is it loaded up to go home from a camping trip.

Thanks,

RAdventureWagon

I've introduced myself already on mud elsewhere, but I guess I should post in the right place, now that I've found myself a machine.

I've been a mitsu 4wd fan since 1995 and have had many in that time. Recently we replaced my wife's Pajero Mk3 DiD with a 100 Series for towing our 18 foot trailer in the Rockies. I'll be keeping my Pajero Evolution no.581/2500 but I started wondering if perhaps I should replace my daily driver SWB Mk3 Pajero with a smaller Land Cruiser?

A few months later, here I am about to pick up a KZJ90. It will indeed replace my daily driver SWB Mk3 Pajero DiD auto, because I really missed shifting my own gears. And I believe I found a gem - a 1999 SWB with 95k kms on the odo, and almost perfect inside and out, according to the vids and pics. Bonus: it's a manual transmission! Bringing it home this Friday.

Plans will be to get it ready for some big summer trips, while keeping it capable and still practical for my daily drive (about 160 kms round trip). This might involve a roof rack, bullbar, and snorkel. Also dual batteries, onboard air, etc.
