Welcome folks. With all the requests I get about my 100's various lifts and modifications, I figured using this forum would make for a huge time saver for me (and others). It'll also benefit those contemplating how to build their 100-series for their needs.
Please note: I'm doing this to bring information and pictures to one place so people can see how various modifications compare. Because my 100 (Roklimo) has been a work in progress since 2001 I have experience with various suspension setups both on and off-road. I'll share them here. Also note that my intention is to not be the "100 genius". It's to share information from my perspective. Others may have different opinions and that's OK with me as different folks find different things more or less important. So, review my information here, do more reseach and then decide which mods are best for your truck. We'll also feature some comments and pics from other Cruiser owners where effective.
THIS THREAD WILL TAKE SOME TIME TO COMPLETE. IT WILL BE DONE IN PHASES. WE'LL START WITH A STOCK 2001 UZJ100 LAND CRUISER AND SHOW PROGRESS AS "ROKLIMO" WAS BUILT. YOU CAN PLAN TO SEE EVALUATIONS OF:
3 various tire sizes
3 different lift heights
3 different shock types and spring sets
Various modifications and other ways to improve your 100-series, some which are not my own. I'll update these advancements too as I learn about them.
SO, COME BACK FOR MORE INFORMATION AS I UPDATE IT. YOU CAN ALSO "SUBSCRIBE" TO THIS THREAD SO YOU GET AN AUTO UPDATE VIA EMAIL.
Thanks for reading. John
