Someone will be addressing the website soon.DON’T OPEN THE MALTEC SITE today !
Ya’ll......something is seriously f**ked up with their website. I tried it, had huge blurry pictures load and block the screen, and then another page opened up with some B.S. spamming contest page that had nada to do with Maltec!
But getting back to the main topic....what year is that Troopy?
For the Troopy $139K is the asking price for all newAll new parts for a landcruiser, what the heck can that cost??
I remember somebody did a study years ago Where they built a car from scratch using replacement original parts and it was 10 times the purchase price of a new car.
Or some people want the best and most unique rig and can easily afford it and the price for peace of mind is worth it to them. Not everyone wants it to have an old crappy truck that might well break down because “that’s part of the fun” in order to enjoy their time in the backcountry.139,000?
I just don’t get this modern mindset.. just throw a pile of money at every possible issue so nothing ever goes wrong on the journey...So people spend forever saving up enough money to buy something that will never break down, with every type of recovery equipment you can imagine, When they could be on the road enjoying themselves. Spend some time learning about the vehicle you own. An older Land Cruiser is about the easiest vehicle you can fix and maintain. I’ve driven the older diesels 100,000 miles with no problems. I would not hesitate to import a diesel powered Land Cruiser from Japan, give it a compression check, Check change all fluids, replace the radiator, clutch and service items and head south for six months of worry free driving. And if you run into a mechanical problem, Either fix it or have it fixed. The slight nagging worry That something might go wrong is part of the adrenaline that keeps you going.
Stop trying to drive 75 mph with an expedition vehicle, get one that’ll get to 68 mph with a tail wind and save yourself a lot of time, effort and money.
