I agree, my 2005 100 is the best vehicle I have ever owned. I lived with a 1984 Fj60 for 21 years prior and loved it
but the 100 has all the great qualities of the 60 but can be driven on Interstate Highways. The Slee Offroad site has
a great summary of the 100 series. The only problem with...
I notice there is also an increase in wt from 44lb (265/75) in load range C to 50lb in E, which will possibly be noticed with my auto 4 cyl already challenged
by the increase in diameter from OE. After considering all your opinions, and my usage, I will go with Toyo AT2 LT265/75 16 in C...
Thanks daveindenver, 265/75 16s are my second choice as they are the same diameter. I like the narrower look of the 235s, but
since 99 percent of my driving is on pavement. 265/75s are probably more practical.
My original Grandtreks (245/75 16) are about ready to be replaced on my 4 cyl 2015 Tacoma 4WD. I am considering Open Country A/T2 in 235/85 16,
which should be .5 in narrower, 1.2 in taller, and 12lb/tire heavier. I will be keeping my steel wheels. Has anyone done that and if so what are
I bought a 2007 G500 and sold my Toyota 60. I had my G500 for 10 years and loved it, with only a $900.00 window regulator failure.
The problem for me was the lack of aftermarket support, and the lack of a tailgate which is very handy when camping. I finally sold it
in 2017 and bought a 50K...
No longer have my 60 but when I did I had a custom rack fabricated using Yakima gutter mount towers.
They are made of high strength nylon and worked great w/o damage to gutters. I used 5 per side to
distribute the wt as much as possible.
The cheapest car to own is the one you already have. Investing in your LX is most likely more cost effective than buying an unknown vehicle.
This is a general rule of car ownership, although there are always exceptions.
There are a few variables to consider. Was it stored with some care and foresight, or was it "parked" after a collision. Was it kept in a climate controlled environment or a damp barn. The difference is important as many low mileage vehicles are subject to deterioration due to bad storage...
I may not go rock crawling but my Slee'd 100 is perfect for long distance travel over any terrain, even if 95%
is paved! You are right, of course, but everybody has their own taste and that is what makes it interesting
with all the different build ideas.
In 2007, I sold my LC 60 series and bought a new G500. I kept it for 10 years and it was a great vehicle. The only failure was the RR window regulator, $950.00
at the Bend MBZ dealer. Service cost at the dealer can be expensive at $900.00 for the B service. Last year I sold it and bought a...
I sold my LC 60 in 2007 and bought a new G500. I loved the G500 and it was very capable in all conditions. Owning it for 10 years, it only needed a LR window regulator replaced ($930) which seemed expensive. The other issue was routine dealer service (every other service) was $900.00. The...
The "people" he is referring to are probably LC aficionados who think the last real LC available in the states was the 100 or 80 series
and deride the 200 as a mall crawler that looks like a Sequoia but 2X as expensive. I have to admit they have a point, though I am
biased as a devoted 100 fan...
