    • Hey yall, excellent site. Well I finally got myself a landcruiser. Always loved the 60s, 4 doors room for kids dog and gear and solid axels , perfect building block. 83 bj60 3 inch body lift 34-10.50 swampers Me and the kids are kikin around a few different names for it, but RUSTY sure seems to fit . I picked up some steel and will be fabing front and rear bumpers set up for a portable winch, swing out tire gerry can carier and roof rack. Ive got a pic but not sure how to get it on here. Ill post it when I figure it out. ​

    Welcome to the LC world. Now take out your wallet and remove all cash, coins, credit cards, check cards, etc and burn them.

    I too wanted a 60 for kid, dog & gear! Enjoy the site!

    Modification for Spring Over Axle. Stock setup is leaf springs mounted UNDER the axle. Has many benefits such as lift, approach angle, flexibility, and many others i didn't mention.
