    New member in So Cal. Land Rover > Land Cruiser..

    Hello all - I am looking to get back into wheeling. I used to have a 2010 Range Rover S/C lightly modified. It was an amazing vehicle... until the 100k mile warranty was up, then it emptied my pocket. Coincidently, was very reliable with no real issues for the first 104k. Overspending on...

    Interested in opinions of pros and con of the fzj80 and a discovery

    Looking to start a new build. I figure the best advise comes from those who have already owned either of these rigs. I’ve narrowed it down to a fzj 80 or a Land Rover discovery 1. Seeing if anyone have and experience with them and some of the pros and cons of both.

    1997 Toyota Land Cruiser (Landy 2) Build Thread

    Hi everyone, starting this thread early/late depending on how you look at it. I bought a basket case 1995 FZJ80 last year that contains a much longer story than this thread is appropriate for. The short story goes that the 1995 has a rebuilt engine and the 1997 has a straight driveline...

    80 Series Skid Plates?

    I notice that there are many manufacturers that make and sell skid plates for a variety of 4x4s, but I don't see much for the Toyota FJ80... Now, I know that the FJ80 is quite popular and even plentiful perhaps, and I'd think there'd be more available. That being said, while I've been lightly...
