Hi Craig,

Welcome,
What land cruiser did you get?

I presume you went for a diesel jobbie?

hi
i went for a petrol, i was offered it at the right price so took a chance on moving from my land rover to it.

so far seems ok, need some tyres though, went off roading in road tyres to try it out and almost died! really almost died! been offroading loads and never have i come so close!!!!

guess thats why mud tyres are for mud and road tyres for road, must find a way to remember that.

a petrol 80 series with lpg would be a good call

get some decent tyres on it (a lift if you want one) you wont be disappointed in it off road

best plan for a good baseline service as well

in particular the from axle can suffer from lack of maintenance until they get into the hand of enthusiasts.
