Hi everybody!
I'd like to tell you a lifestory of my Land Cruiser 77
(sorry for my english)

It was born April 1991 in Japan. After few years people shipped it to Russia.
First 17 years it was absolutely ordinary PZJ77. 5- cyls 1PZ diesel, R151F gearbox, leafsprings and 215/85R16 tyres
It's owner drived it every day at work and back home....

Thank you! Let's continue

First mud shows the truck is not good for offroad. Unlocked axles, poor articulations. Small clearance. Leafspring plates which contects the ground everytime...

Reasons are following:

- Ground clearance +14 cm with same tyres
- Gear ratio 6:1
- Difflocks
- Durability
- No lifting needed. Propeller shafts and steering rods angles are good
- Easy to install - both trucks has a leafsprings
- Wheel base are similar too

OK, let's do it!

Yes, that were impressive moments! :)

This guy Sanjar has a ger not far from our crash point )) He ride his bike and took me to nearest village Sangino about 10 miles from there. We found a "repair service" (Dugui Zasvar in mongolian). But no one can speak Russian...
Than we came to gas station where worked old man. Fortunately he was a Russian language teacher at 20th century :) He translated all my words to welder guy st Dugui Zasvar. We found an old metal bed, cut a frame part and repaired tie rod! :)
BTW i used this "bed-rod" many monthes at home ))) Good work done! ))
