    I've done a fair bit of climbing out there. I love it around Katoomba. The old houses with the view off the cliffs are awesome. You should have plenty of local spots to play with the Troopy!

    Yeah, I like the Northstars too. Hallmarks are $30,000+ spec'd as I'd want, so they are a lottery dream at the moment. Below are pics of the "North Texas" style welding tub I was talking about. ...

    My 7.3 had to be plugged in even in summer. I did GPs, GP relay and still nothing. Changed the rocker gaskets with integral wiring harness and presto. Starts no problem. Often the connector plugs...

    I used to get around 14 mpg out of my 460 5 speed combo ('96 F250 ex-cab short box) basically idling everywhere, but I think 17 mpg out of a carb 454 and granny low 4 speed is some serious wishful...

    My dream set up would be a service box too, or maybe if I had $20,000 to spare, a custom service box along the lines of the Texas style welding truck bodies that mimic the stock box lines. I'd also...

    I've been a fan of Troopies since my first trip to Oz almost 20 years ago. I'll be watching your build for sure!

    OP: Good luck with your Sequoia. There might be more info on them in the Tundra / Tacoma section if you don't get a response here.

    I'd be very curious to see what springs you have in yours as well. Mine are the 865 coils, and I find them a bit soft. I believe the 864 or 868 are heavier rate coils? Maybe Curt (Cruiseroutfit)...

    OME and be done with it. There's a reason they are in 80% or more of all modded Land Cruisers world wide.

    Sweet! I also ditched a built Rubicon ('11) in favor of a '99 UZJ100. Same OME suspension, locker, and mine came with brand new Swampers, but I sold them and bought BFG ATs. Mine is my 8th Land...

    Later 100 series came with 18" wheels, so 17" should be ok. But I'm going to stray from the herd and say don't go with Duratracs. They are a great looking tread pattern, and do well in snow, but I...

    That's a great deal for $6750! I wouldn't call it "Landy" though as that is a very common nickname / slang for Landrover. If you're in the military, how about "LC". Unless your a bird or higher I...

    Unless you've always wanted a 60 series and love a challenge, I agree. Run don't walk! It's definitely not something to "flip for profit".

    If you can part it out for more than you paid, and get a free top end for your 40, then you are winning. Sure, you might have to hang on to your folks car a bit longer, but put the profit into a...

    I'm going to guess the 80s you have driven were stock? They CAN be as soft as a Rover, but most people choose to set them up for capacity vs cushiness. My 100 series with OME coils is far softer...
