    Lexus GX 460 & 470 owner's thread

    True that. That's how I got my 80; flew from Virginia down to Florida. Has been a great vehicle so far (going on ~10 years now), but... it's still a '95. Hence looking at the 470/460. :-/

    Lexus GX 460 & 470 owner's thread

    I have family in Europe; among whom is a brother-in-law who's a bit of a car nut. I've sent him Subaru (WRX) parts before, so he owes me. ;) Another question for you guys: I'm having a tough time finding GX's without the air suspension. Anyone here have any nightmare stories about them? Any...

    Lexus GX 460 & 470 owner's thread

    Hey! I'm looking at getting a GX myself to retire the 80 from daily-driver duty. And of course, before I've even settled on getting a truck, I'm thinking of mods. :rolleyes: So, a question: anyone here know if the rear door of a Prado can work on one of these? With the integrated spare-tire...

    2013 Dodge RAM 2500 6.7L CUMMINS DIESEL LARAMIE PKG 4X4 QUAD CAB LONG BED

    Geez, that's EXACTLY what I've been looking for. Just out of my budget! :cry:

    Ecodiesel as a short-distance commuter? Issues?

    I've been eyeing those as well as the Colorado/Canyon diesels as well. Timeline is flexible, but the budget isn't. :) Working within what I've got, I'm kind of limited in options. I could do cash for a 1500 Ram with the 3.0, but the Canyons/Colorado's haven't come down enough yet.

    Ecodiesel as a short-distance commuter? Issues?

    Slightly tangental to the OP, but there's a lot of negative publicity going around regarding the reliability of the EcoDiesel. Anyone here have experience with the... I think it's passenger-side cam-gear failure? I've likewise got about a 20 mile commute I'm looking to get another truck for (the...

    Russian off-road vehicles that are in production today.

    Stories of reliability aside, the Kamaz really does look to be a decent (if large) vehicle for that part of the world. The guy has obviously put a TON of work into the thing. Everything is in Russian; but for folks from this side, it should be pretty obvious what he's showcasing on his vehicle...

    Special LR3 Lug Nuts? Whaaaaa...?

    Something tells me that while they might look similar, I'm not sure they'd be interchangeable... :D Ooooo! I might take you up on that. PM sent.

    Perfect explanation. Thank you!

    Special LR3 Lug Nuts? Whaaaaa...?

    Now, I'm not a Landy guy myself, but a good friend here at work has an LR3. I know they like to do things a bit... differently over there on the other side of the pond, but he hit me up with a real head scratcher: Evidently, his mechanic told him that the LR3 needs some sort of special lug nut...

    OEM/Stock FJ45 Crewcab?!?

    It may have been posted before, but I didn't see anything. Putzing around, I came a cross this: Now, I'm not even going to try to claim knowledge of unusual cruiser models, but even I know that this is one VERY rare setup. Price tag is through the roof ($125K), but... The entire thing...

    Tried that, that clay is just too impenetrable to water. I hit the stuff in the wheelwell directly with the hose sprayer nozzle thingy: didn't touch it. Maybe I'll try the sprinkler thing overnight... Pffft! Now you tell me! Actually, the bulk of it came in through the window and splattered...

    Range Rover Evoque

    Top Gear's James May seemed fairly impressed with it when taking it through Death Valley (Season 17 Ep 3). Then again, that crew isn't particularly difficult to impress when it comes to this sort of thing...

    Who says stock cruisers can't have fun? A '95 w/o the wonderful knob-o-power AKA factory diff locks. In retrospect, that's probably a good thing... This was the day after burrying it up to the runningboards in thick, extremely slippery Northern Virginia clay. Took us a day to get it...

    $100 roof rack (gutter mounts included) = worth it?

    Not entirely sure. I sent them an email about it: those foot clamps didn't look like the most sturdy of construction... Hence my asking both you guys and them. I'll see what they reply.

    $100 roof rack (gutter mounts included) = worth it?

    In looking for roof baskets, I came across this. Anyone know anything about it? Looks like a good deal for the price, but wanted to check out what you guys had to say first. http://www.t-motorsports.com/product/large-63x46-van-jeep-roof-gutter-cargo-carrier-basket-roofcarrier-ch44-silver/

    I've got an add up there as well. Thanks!

    WTB - Fzj80

    Yup, looking for an 80. I'd prefer a 95~97, but could go for a lower mileage 93~94. I'm in the DC area, so I'd be happy to drive out an see anything in MD, DC, VA or NC. Heck, if you've got a nice truck, I'll head down to NC, WV, etc. I really don't care about leather vs cloth, so long as it's...

    Bugger! Now my stock '94 80 with running boards feels so... inadequately un-manly. :drool::drool:

    FJ80 header down pipes?

    Right, I headed over to IPOR... Those guys are awesome! Anyway, I think I got it fixed: sounds like bad knock sensors rather than O2 sensors... Just waiting on cruiserparts.net now.
