    Help identify this roof rack set-up, please.

    Hmmm, The long item is a fishing rod holder/lockbox. The rack almost looks like an ARB of sorts maybe. It resembles a shorter version of a Gamaviti in a way or even a short BajaRack. I’ll let the experts chime in!

    Spotted these in North Carolina

    My understanding is a deal between the Military and the DOT on a national level, they come in, people train and after some time they are sold and or exported per the agreement.

    Spotted these in North Carolina

    My understanding is there is a company in NC that does plating work on LCs, and “builds/mods” for special ops units. I live in Asheville and from time to time the steel 17” wheels from the UAE 200s show up being sold in the Charlotte area.

    2000 Series 100 purchase decision...help

    What are they asking for it? Might be a decent deal. I’d start at KBB and NADA private party values and start deducting for obvious repairs and “baseline” needs. Don’t forgot to ask about the sunroof working, that seems to be a hit or miss. And ask about the seat heaters. Check A/C for...

    2000 Series 100 purchase decision...help

    I know KBB (FWIW) on my 2000 LC with 450K on it was still over 4K, last year. The LCs are going up I believe, I’m second owner though. If the A/C has had a compressor and evaporator replaced that helps. I’m sure it’s had a steering rack by now, unless all highway miles. Starter been...

    Build a 100/200, do I care about adding lockers?

    Yup, And something about steering angle is also a factor, as in to much turning of the front wheels and it doesn’t “engage” as well or modulate as good.

    Build a 100/200, do I care about adding lockers?

    Also search YouTube for “ATRAC land cruiser” and there are quite a few videos of LCs and LX470s with good demonstrations and rules of thumb for using it.

    Titan drawer system

    I had em, were super solid and I was very very pleased. Name a little different but I’m pretty sure Titan was the AU name and Dobinsons made it to the US. But sold em, decided to let them go and put my 3rd row back in. What is the cost of freight to the US?

    40 Guy builds a 100 Series

    Can I inquire if you were able to use a type of lower ball joint tool and do those yourself while the LCAs was still on the vehicle? Much appreciated!

    High-mileage LC and LX vets please weigh in

    Don’t forget in 06 & 07 AHC was an option. There are some out there w/out it.

    High-mileage LC and LX vets please weigh in

    That’s funny you mention the stereo and the navigation, I completely forgot to mention that because it can be for some the only real drawback or bane of existence of their LX. However it’s easily remedied with the first GEN model because it’s just a standard double din and a lot of people...

    High-mileage LC and LX vets please weigh in

    I would steer towards the newer one, mostly because I’m pretty sure it should have a five speed transmission mated up to the engine where as you know the four-speed transmission is the same tranny that was in an 80 series, Honestly you’re not going to go wrong with either one, just do your...

    who is using a real gps vs a tablet

    Anyone care to make a good recommendation for a first handheld GPS for me, I am new to downloading maps and such and would prefer something I could mount in the vehicle and use as a handheld too. I’m leaning towards a 60 series Garmin but am not sure which would be a good first unit...

    What is the best year for the 100 series Land Cruiser?

    2000 and up should have the 4-pinion diff I thought? Hence ATRAC, Also for 06-07 AHC was an option so not all of them had it. Good luck finding one w/out it though.

    What is the best year for the 100 series Land Cruiser?

    Well only 98 and 99 had the factory locking rear diff. Some were loaded with options others weren’t. If you want the third row power vent windows you’ll be looking for one with rear A/C. Not all got it though. I’ve seen one w/out it. 2000 had ATRAC from then on. 2001 got “latch” child seat...

    Awnings - Driver or Passenger side mounted?

    I prefer the pass side for the East Coast beaches. As long as your rear is towards the surf, as the sun sets its over your windshield and drivers side, makes for more shade that way.
