    What would you go for? A 60 or a 100 series?

    The back seat does fold down in a 60 and it should have head rests. US models do. Show us some photos of the vehicles you're looking at. If starting from scratch I would go with the 100. Advantages of 60 are just that they look cooler and are easier to work on. I've had the EFI 60 series...

    2nd Gen 4Runner

    I've had a '90 for 17 years. It doesn't see a lot of miles (about 160K now) since it's a vacation home rig but it's always been dependable. 3.0 and auto. Most attractive 4Runner body style of them all, IMO.

    Prepping the 200 Series for Alaska or just building my 200 Series.

    Very nice rig. A stock 200 series with no mods would work fine for me. :) Can't drive to Alaska this year, unfortunately.

    Switched the Ford Escape for an FJ62 LandCruiser

    Good job on the C channel project. Frame doesn't really look bad at all. Body needs some help though.

    1st Gen Tundra vs. 80 Series Land Cruiser

    You would likely get a good deal on your dads' 2006 Tundra. 80 series? Over priced gas pigs prone to HG failures. A no brainer in my opinion. Actually, I'd just keep the '94 pickup but I guess you're not considering that as an option.

    (Another) Hardbody Overland Build

    Got a photo of that? I'm also curious about the Moog problem solver components that SevenFaux referred to. My '95 has just a bit over 100K miles on it now. Suspension and steering has held up fairly well, but I just run stock size tires.

    Hdj81 fair price

    Seems high for Alaska market, if that's where it's at.

    Where are you located? Lets see some pics, weather be damned.

    Should it stay or should it go?

    I can't imagine travelling comfortably with two huge, smelly dogs in the cabin with me. My advice is to get a moderately sized pickup and pitch a tent to camp in.

    Time for a change?

    You've fixed the big ticket items so no point in dumping money into an engine swap. Sounds like you're tired of it and it's time to just move into something else. I don't have a problem with slow and would keep it.

    1985 Pickup Shackle Help

    For a daily driver and road trip truck I don't understand the urgency in lifting it. Or lifting it at all, for that matter. Will you be carrying a lot of weight in the rear? If the sag isn't bad and you don't have plans for a great deal of weight remember that more leaves/stiffer springs...

    1985 Pickup Shackle Help

    One thing to consider is how much your springs are currently sagging. I bought 1 1/2 to 2 inch lift shackles for my TLC and they probably provided 1" at most over actual stock ride height with no adverse effects over many years. is where I'd...

    Should I buy a RJ70 Gasoline Land Cruiser

    I would. That thing is way cool and the price is quite affordable.
